Amazing Appetizers, Chef Gennaro Esposito, Ristorante Torre del Saracino, Vico Equense (Na)




 

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!

Curious?

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.




Amazing!
