Our restaurant

Our cuisine privileges the typical dishes of the best Mediterranean Italian kitchen. Here the classical recipes of the old days like the Neapolitan ragout meet the creativity in the parings of always fresh seasonal products.

We propose you a wide selection of fresh fish with daily arrivals, selected meats, typical salami and cheeses, mushrooms and truffles when available, fresh pasta and homemade bread.

The desserts are exclusively of our production and can be personalized for any demand. Also, on the occasion of Christmas, Easter and other festivities we prepare the traditional Napolitean desserts: Struffoli, Pastiera, Zeppole di San Giuseppe.

Our wood-fired oven

The wood-fired oven and the long experience of who takes care of it allow us to daily provide fresh bread, focaccia bread, Neapolitan Casatielli, salty cakes and, of course, pizza and Gragnano’s typical Panuozzo. These are prepared with selected white or wholewheat flours, natural yeast, sea salt, dressed with Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the best ingredients.
