On a recent trip to Hotel Santa Caterina we decided to dine in one of their restaurants, Restaurant Santa Caterina, and we’re very pleased that we did. Our expectations of this restaurant were already quite high, as we had heard they had received many culinary awards, and knowing what we did about the service in the hotel itself, we knew we would be in for a great evening. Fortunately, it didn’t disappoint.

This hotel boasts unrestricted views over the Amalfi coastline, and we were delighted that this restaurant offered tables both inside and outside on the terrace. Naturally we opted to dine outside, overlooking the stunning views. As day turned to night, this was a truly special experience and quite the sight to behold, this was certainly a memorable dinner.

To begin our evening, we both opted for a glass of the Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose, which was a joy to sip as we perused the menus. For our starters, my partner chose the spaghetti of Gragnano with seafood and I went for the risotto with lemon and local shrimps. Both dishes were exceptional. The spaghetti was so perfectly al dente and the seafood in both dishes was exceptionally fresh and perfectly seasoned.

“In our opinion, authentic Italian food is hard to beat, and Restaurant Santa Caterina has mastered it down to a fine art.”

For our main courses, we both decided on the local salt-baked Pezzogona for two, which was served with vegetables and is prepared with precision tableside. We absolutely love tableside service, which is a real treat, and our server absolutely delivered. The fish was divine, and the presentation was impeccable. In our opinion, authentic Italian food is hard to beat, and Restaurant Santa Caterina has mastered it down to a fine art.

Alongside our meal, we enjoyed a bottle of the 2009 Mastroberardino Naturalis Historia, Taurasi DOCG, Italy. This wine was impeccable being deep purple in colour with a palate of dark fruit and tobacco. Being a medium full-bodied wine, it was silky and easy drinking, making it the perfect accompaniment to our dinner.

We simply couldn’t pass on dessert. My partner opted for the decadent Caprese chocolate almond cake with vanilla flavoured cream, whilst I kept things simple with their selection of sorbets, which included lemon, vanilla and strawberry. We also thoroughly enjoyed two shots of local Limoncello, which completed our experience wonderfully.

Overall we were blown away with our evening at Restaurant Santa Caterina. The service was second-to-none, the cuisine was faultless and the location was absolutely stunning. For us, there was nothing that could have been improved, so this restaurant comes highly recommended by us for a wonderful dining experience on the Amalfi Coast, even if you are not guests at Hotel Santa Caterina it’s certainly worth a trip just for the dining experience. We simply cannot wait to return and experience our evening all over again.
