Where to Eat on the Amalfi Coast: Ravello
Beginning in the fifties the Amalfi Coast has offered a local version of the classic "Mediterranean cuisine", focused on simplicity and flavor as well as excellent quality.
Ravello was the town that initially introduced high quality restaurants to the Amalfi Coast.
The top restaurateurs started here, and over time they were followed by many others.
At Villa Cimbrone, one of Ravello’s historic villas, you will find Il Flauto di Pan, a Michelin-starred restaurant that offers both structure and balance in its dishes, high-class service and an excellent wine list.
Another place that I believe deserves to be mentioned is Garden, a restaurant that is often very busy – if not chaotic – at lunch time, but that in the evening turns into a charming locale with attentive service and authentic food, both from the land and sea.
*Baldassarre Fiorentino was manager of a restaurant in Positano and one in the province of Trento and, until 2013, has been owner/manager of one of the highest-rated restaurants in Praiano. He is also a sommelier and producer of quality wines.
