Sunshine on a Cloudy Day, Chef Lino Scarallo, Palazzo Petrucci (Na)


I had this particular pranzo on my calendar for weeks.  Lunch at Palazzo Petruuci at their new location.  New location?  Let's rewind just a bit. The Michelin star restaurant relocated from the popular centro storico at Piazza San Domenico Maggiore to the beach on Via Posillipo - complete with a view of the Mt Vesuvius and the sea. Yes, I had the date on my calendar in pen, not pencil so I had no intention of changing it.
A couple of days before, however, the weather forecasts predicted that clouds and/or rain would spoil my plans.  But I had faith.... A Napoli esce sempre il sole! The sun always comes out in Naples!  And I was right!  An unusually warm Saturday afternoon inside the restaurant as well as outside!

Beginning with this sunny spring appetizer featuring sweet caramelized zucchini flowers, ricotta
cheese, anchovies, tomatoes, basil and provola cheese! Let's take a look...
