Villa Maria Ravello is Perfect for a Lunch Over Looking Ravello’s Hillside!
Villa Maria Ravello is surrounded by wonderful terraced gardens where every morning our farmers harvest organic products which can be savored in the restaurant. Take a stroll through the gardens and even visit the cave chapel at the end of the gardens, where farmers used to stop and pray during work pause.
After our walk through the gardens of Villa Cimbrone
we headed to the ristorante Villa Maria
. The hotel/restaurant is a perfect way to take a scenic break with delicious food.
The restaurant opened, just like the hotel, in 1934 with grandma Orsola at the burners; today it is possible to savor regional and local cuisine recipes improved with knowledge and modern taste by the coast’s famous chefs.
The restaurant, suggested by major culinary guides, has received awards from the Gambero Rosso and from the Italian Culinary Academy, the TV network BBC, has filmed the chefs at work for the program “This Morning” starring Lloyd Grossman and gastronomy expert Antonio Carluccio.
We sat in the garden overlooking Ravello and the coast and savored every bite especially the lemon soufflé.
