Appetizers on the Beach, Chef Francesco Sardegna, Ristorante Marina Grande (Sa)

In Campania, the sun rarely looks at the calendar to decide when to come out and play.  And that's a good thing for those off season tourists like me who prefer hitting the winding roads of the Amalfi coast before the heat of the summer. I chose a Saturday afternoon for my trip to Amalfi...for my lunch prepared by Chef Francesco Sardegna and his brigade at Ristorante Marina Grande

Warm sunny sunshine. Great. 
A table on the terrace overlooking the beach.  Perfect
Three amazing appetizers. Even better. 

Number One:

Sauro in poke, tarallo, puttanesca sauce. citrus yogurt and, burrata cheese

Number Two:  

Three scallops wrapped in-wait for it-bacon...and a third little bundle of fried mozzarella in carozza.  All on top of a playful rubic's cube made with zucchini and yellow bell peppers.

Number Three:  

Roasted octopus and barley salad.

Lunch on the beach???
Who say's you've got to wait for summer!!
