It’s All About La Dolce Vita at Borgo Santandrea

Posted March 28, 2024 in Travel by Miriam Cain

Italy is known for its cuisine, its achingly beautiful scenery and Italians’ appreciation for the finer things in life, known as la dolce vita. For a taste of this “sweet life,” tender ashore to the private jetty at the Marinella Beach Club. One of three impressive culinary offerings at Borgo Santandrea, the Marinella Beach Club is a 19th-century boat house where you can enjoy a beachside menu by day or moonlit evenings by the sea. Think Vesuvius yellow tomatoes, Amalfi lemon zest, and “fruits of the sea.” One level above the beach club, the Marinella Restaurant features a menu with traditional regional classics paying tribute to culinary traditions and culture, while perched on the cliffside, the hotel’s signature restaurant, Alici, steals the show.

Perfectly located on a sunlit terrace with breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Alici has recently been awarded its first Michelin Star under the leadership of Executive Chef Crescenzo Scotti. Alici’s menu focuses on fresh local ingredients from the Campania region, cooked in a style that is heavily influenced by Crescenzo’s love for traditional, simple Southern Italian cuisine. Classics include Risotto del Borgo (risotto with rice and Amalfi Coast lemons); Linguine alla Nerano with zucchini and basil, and Mediterranean Cappuccino featuring Blue Lobster. An open kitchen allows gastronomes to interact with the team for an immersive dining experience, while the décor pays homage to the area’s rich architectural history.
