I chose an off-season December Saturday for a long overdue visit to Ristorante Torre del Sarancino, the 2 starred Michelin restaurant located next to the beach in Vico Equense.
After a relaxing aperitif in the restaurants renovated medieval tower, I sat down and studied the menu alongside Maître Vincenzo Spasiano. This being my first time tasting Chef Gennaro Esposito’s specialties it wasn’t easy to choose just one appetizer. So I chose four!
Check it out…
- Marinated scorpionfish…’acqua pazza’. A spectacular salsa made with the fish heads included.
- Lightly smoked bonito fish with two special sauces; one starring nduja, the other tarallo from Agerola.
- Cuttlefish, ink and liver with parsley pesto and lemon confit.
- Stewed mullet, caprino goat cheese and beet gnocchi.
