So when I checked into Hotel Tramontano, one of Sorrento's most historical hotels, I was curious how this hotel - complete with a breathtaking view of the sea and Mt Vesuvius, would welcome me and others in search of an amazing dining experience.
Let's begin with lunch at the hotel's Ristorante Belvedere. Here Chef Ciro Longobardi has been at the helmsfor three seasons. Let's take a look...
After a glass of falanghina 2105 from Villa Raiano we got to work.

|Fried anchovy and vegetables|
|Sauteed squid and creamy fava bean|
|Spaghetti, clams, tomatoes, and asparagus|
|Red mullet, creamy fennel, black olives, and tomato confit|
Ice cream and cake!!
|Pistachio ice cream and creamy molten chocolate cake |
And with a lunch like this, just needed a quick nap before dinner! Stay tuned!
