Refined selection of local wines


The Neapolitan 'sgagliuozzi' are a recurring dish in Neapolitan cuisine, and even today, you'll find them in most kitchens in Campania. Assunta serves these crispy triangles of fried polenta as a starter, opening a taste Experience that is dedicated to the culinary wonders of the region. Next, a hearty first course of maritata soup, a comforting feast of meat and vegetables that is slow-cooked for many hours. 

For the second course, pork chops and meatballs served with typical 'tracchiulelle', pork ribs cooked according to local tradition. This selection of local meat that our is accompanied by 'escarole', a raisin and pine nut salad that is a perfect balance of sweet and savoury. 

Finally, dessert. Starting with a sweet 'pasta tart' followed by home-made nougat, a much-loved sweet of the Neapolitan culture. Then, to see the evening off, an assortment of Assunta's special home-made liqueurs - a perfect finish!

Assunta welcomes us in an authentic "paradise on earth". How else to describe Meta, a small town of the Sorrento peninsula overlooking the Gulf of Naples: green hills planted with walnut and olive trees that descend to the turquoise sea and, in the distance, the silhouette of the island of Ischia. 

Our Cesarina's dishes sum up the heart of this land. Getting in the kitchen, for Assunta, means diving into family tradition and local history. An example? The sweet and sour dishes, which Assunta has rediscovered collecting and experimenting with almost-forgotten recipes.
