There is a hot restaurant in Quarto that everyone is talking about. Yes, I did say Quarto. Quarto, known for its chaotic traffic, bumpy roads and the montagna spaccata, you'll find a little oasis called SUD ristorante. I heard of the place a few months ago. Ais Napoli has chosen this spot to hold several events such as La Marcia di Natale and Sud & Riesling to name a couple.
I'd like to share with you a translation of a review by Davide Ricciardello of Ristoranti Campani posted yesterday.
"PRO: cooking elaborate and coherent, and evokes the delicious appetizer (bacon cooked at low temperature, cottage cheese with pepper and broccoli); extremely balanced first course(fettuccelle cauliflower and mullet with orange rind), a microcosm of concoted flavors; concrete and structured second courses (perfect salt cod in a coach and as a frying and as a composition; tasty and tender shoulder of lamb stuffed with pork), refined and delicious desserts (the versatile pastry pie with dark chocolate, jam d ' orange and meringue, a real "coup de foudre"); bread made fresh on site, simple and stuffed in various ways (bacon, figs, sweet paprika, etc.), refined setting and elegant service prompt and friendly (with the constant care of Pino and Stefania), interesting wine list edited by Fabrizio Erbaggio.
CONS: Can you have the same amazing value for money for the wine and spirits?
FINAL RATING: Marianna Vitale is a great chef, her art is a remarkable harmony of tradition, creativity and technical mastery.
Recommended for lovers of fine cuisine, prepared to be surprised about the substantial dichotomy between the high intrinsic value of flow rates and the convenience of prices at which they are offered."
So the next time you find yourself in Quarto, skip the mall and head SUD.
