Aroma

Under the influence of local Chef Giuseppe Di Lorio, Aroma combines traditional Italian cooking with a modern slant. As an advocate of sustainable fishing you won’t find any tuna on Chef Di Lorio’s menu but instead a wonderful array of alternative species such as fragolino and gallinella.

For those looking for a more adventurous gastronomical journey the delicacies of the centrofolo fish in an escarole, sea urchin and baby squid “Guazzetto” is well worth a try.

Ristorante Consolini

For an intimate dinner, Ristorante Consolini’s caves are the perfect choice, and legend has it that this was the site of the battle between Hercules and the fire breathing monster Cacus.

You can hire out the entire cave section of the restaurant for total romantic seclusion, while dining on traditional Italian fare of lobster, vongole and octopus carpaccio.
