Walk the Bougainvillea lined streets of Capri to Terrazza Brunella sitting atop a cliff overlooking the Marina Piccola. This really is one of the most romantic restaurants with a break taking view. Fresh caught fish and produce grown right there in Capri fill the menu. Try the branzino fish and octopus carpaccio. Friendly service and comfortable atmosphere, reservations recommended.

You must check out the view, here!

Dinner on the Amalfi Coast at Osteria Angelo Masuccio – Salerno, Italy

Welcome to the Amalfi Coast, breathtaking views and amazing food – see for yourself!

Osteria Angelo Masuccio Salerno Italy Window

Osteria Angelo Masuccio is a tiny authentic Italian restaurant in Salerno. I discovered cannolicchi and the best homemade pasta with truffle shavings! Salerno is an affordable option for a base to check out the different towns along the Amalfi Coast. The restaurant prices are some of the best you will find and Osteria Angelo Masuccio’s food is just as good (and sometimes better) than many places I tried in Amalfi and Capri.

Osteria Angelo Masuccio Patio

Sit on the small patio on the narrow pedestrian cobblestone street to enjoy the people watching and the nice summer breeze. The ground floor of Osteria Angelo Masuccio consists of the dining room and the kitchen is upstairs.

The vegetarian and seafood antipasti is constantly changing depending on what is available and in season. This night we had the seafood with raw slices of salmon, mussels, cannolicchi and mussels. I am not a fan of clams and I admit the cannolicchi kind of scared me but I fell in love after the first bite.

“You have to eat at Solbar.” After hearing this repeatedly I made my way to Solbar a Michelin Star-rated restaurant in the Solage Resort in Calistoga. A huge outdoor patio full of beautiful trees and surrounded by mountains is a great way to take in Napa. The 95 degree day prompted me to sit inside but the large windows, vaulted ceilings and rustic chic vibe was just as enjoyable.

Check out this video if you want a peek inside Solbar.

The 95 degree day made an easy choice of the chilled sweet corn soup. It was refreshing and the chunks of avocado with the magic combination of lime juice and cilantro gave the soup an extra creaminess and zing.
