L’Accanto (Santa Maria Vecchia, 2 Seiano di Vico Equense, Naples)

Located at the 5-star Hotel Angiolieri, just outside the city, L'Accanto is definitely worth a visit. The gourmet cuisine is served in a romantic setting, with a glorious patio looking out towards Mount Vesuvius and onto the nearby bay.

Chef Michele Deleo offers fresh Mediterranean ingredients to produce the likes of succulent lobster pasta, truffle risotto. Although many locals will lean towards the ‘catch of the day’ and a taste of Deleo at his finest.

Near the famous Palazzo Donn’Anna sits another Michelin Star restaurant, within a inside a relatively new building that offers amazing views of Mt Vesuvius.

The cuisine here features modern innovative local dishes created by head chef Lino Scarallo. A wonderful starter is that of ‘mille-feuille’ - local mozzarella and prawns in a vegetable sauce.
