San Pietro

St. Peter’s is an institution, a symbol of the Amalfi Coast, whose fame extends far beyond national borders.
Suffice it to say that, despite the unpopular cost of the rooms (in high season from 620 euros / night to skyrocketing), everything is sold out from May to October.
A place loved by those who stay there, a corner of paradise, a hermitage of luxury and tranquility at the gates of Positano.
It all started with Carlino Cinque, a master of good living, whose cult of hospitality has remained unchanged over the decades and excellently inherited from his descendants Carlo and Vito.
Of course, as much as the hotel, from which you can enjoy breathtaking views, could not help but focus on quality food to offer wealthy customers a fair reward after the "hard work" of the day spent by the pool or by the sea.
The cuisine has been entrusted for a decade to the Belgian Alois Vanlangenaeker who has been able to give it a clear Mediterranean imprint despite its origins.
Every ingredient talks about this land kissed by the sun (except, of course, a few small exceptions), and the scents are those of the garden of San Pietro, an authentic jewel set in the cliff, which offers beautiful products, from tomatoes to mint, basil to the verbena.
The restaurant proposal is divided between the Zass, open to the public, and the Pug, down, near the sea and good retreat for hotel guests only.
The Flemish chef, who landed on the Amalfi Coast after important professional experiences at Ducasse Court in Munich and Paris, at Jean Georges's in New York, at Don Alfonso 1890 and at Mikuni in Tokyo, has the skills to satisfy the most demanding palates. .
The basics for doing well are there, therefore, and the proposal does not disappoint, although in some preparations there is a clear feeling that it does not sink on the accelerator. Clear signal to gourmet sailors Person of fine palate, expert in wines and food. Termine currently matches a creative and avant-garde idea applied to the gastronomic world. Read: it is still the restaurant of a luxury hotel, satisfying all palates is a must.
Specifically, the seconds of fish mark the step, unconvincing preparations, with sometimes unsuccessful combinations and imperfect sauces.
More interesting are the appetizers with a good steamed lobster perfectly accompanied by a remarkable mayonnaise Mayonnaise (from French mayonnaise or Catalan mayonnaise) is a mother sauce, creamy and homogeneous, usually white or pale yellow, which is eaten cold. It is a stable emulsion of vegetable oil, with egg yolk as an emulsifier, and flavored with vinegar or lemon juice (which helps emulsification). The traditional recipe includes the use of olive oil and egg whites, and the roasted octopus with aubergines, capers and a pleasant hint of verbena.
Very good pasta, home made. Special mention for octopus ravioli and egg macaroni with walnuts, anchovies and marinated lobster.
Sweet undertones, with the only exception for the soft lemon cream pie.
Careful and friendly service, interesting wine list, especially in the region, with 5-star refills.
Definitely a negative note, finally, for the odious 15% service charge, applied only to the account of guests who do not stay in the hotel. Non-shareable treatment, which divides into two clear categories those who sit at the tables of the restaurant, especially if, at the time of booking, nothing is reported about it.

Appetizer: sea bass in fillo pasta Term derived from the Greek with the meaning of "leaf", it represents a variety of puff pastry prepared in very thin separate, almost transparent sheets. The artisanal technique for the recipe, based on olive oil, flour, water and salt, is as scenic as ever. It is usually used stuffed, for fried or baked preparations. Read spadellata, with tartar sauce Sauce based on mayonnaise, capers, onion (or chives) and chopped cucumbers. In addition there may be olives, horseradish, vinegar, chopped hard-boiled eggs and mustard. It is mainly used to accompany fish dishes. Read.

Shrimp carpaccio with herbs and crispy vegetables. Delicate.

Sea salad with vegetables, mashed potatoes and clams, quite schooly.

Steamed lobster with egg white mayonnaise, grain mustard and avocado. The quality of the lobster is good, the mayonnaise is interesting, light but with an intense flavor.

Roast octopus with eggplant caviar, capers and verbena. Very interesting is the freshness given by the verbena that abounds on the terraces of the hotel.

Zucchini flower potato dumplings with burrata and summer truffle. Naturally delicious dish, but well balanced in its fatty components.

Octopus ravioli with Gaeta olives and candied lemon. Really well made, calloused but thin puff pastry, lemon essential for the success of the dish.

Egg macaroni, walnuts, anchovies and lobster marinated in yogurt and lime. Also in this case we notice the clever use of the citrus scent to give a boost of freshness to the dish.

Tortelli stuffed with buffalo ricotta and marjoram, tomato porridge Typical peasant soup made with bread, tomato and extra virgin olive oil, characteristic of Tuscany. Read. Browse well drawn, on the palate slightly monochord.

San Pietro spadellato, scented cucumbers with star anise, agricultural rum sauce. Preparation that made us turn up our noses. The cucumbers declined in double version subtract taste charge without adding finesse. Undertone sauce, not perceptible smell of rum.

Sea bass fillet with black olives, white bean salad and scampi. The faint taste of this sea bass was fortunately offset by the olives. I avoid embellishing the dish, but it interacts little with the other ingredients.

Spaghetti mullets, reduction of fish soup, fennel and burrata.

Fig cake with raspberries and yogurt ice cream. If we hadn't seen the fresh fig tree showing off on top of the pie, we would hardly have tasted it & # 8230
