Your own Chef

Want to be pampered? Well, how about your own personal chef? Want a little more of this or “a little less of that?” “Would you rather something with or without something else?” Our gourmet Chef will cater to your whims with our special just-as-you-like it service “made to order” dishes.

And if you are American, you will feel right at home relishing the culinary delights of Sorrento and Naples. Southern Italy is the cradle of Italian-American cuisine. Centuries ago, The New World gave the Italians the tomato and they returned the gift in spades. Neapolitans began transforming the tomato from the Americas into scrumptious sauces which they paired with its soul mate, pasta. Naples gave the world pizza and spaghetti with tomato sauce. Others have tried, but often failed to duplicate the original.

And so it is, back to where it all began. Here in Southern Italy, you can treat yourself to the best renditions of classic hearty southern Italian soups, all kinds of pasta, fresh seafood and vegetable dishes and voluptuous deserts all done with a truly subtle, elegant Neapolitan touch. Neapolitan dishes feature bold and vibrant flavors made from few ingredients, using the simplest techniques and are as nutritious as they are delightful to the palate.

You will delight in popular vegetable dishes like stuffed peppers, numerous delicious eggplant recipes like parmigiana and garlicky greens: pasta dishes like linguine with clam sauce, baked ziti, a wide range of tomato sauces from red sauce, made with raw tomatoes marinated in olive oil and seasoned with salt and basil, to hefty, long-simmered ragu’ with the flavors of meat and red wine.

Got a sweet tooth? Join the Sorrentine crowd! The dolci of Southern Italy include a delight for a mouth full of “sweet teeth.” Some our house’s favorites are Babbà, Sfogliatella, Tiramisù, Cream puffs, Ricotta chees and pears Cake and many others !! After a stay with us, you can sing with Frank Sinatra” “I Had It My Way!”
