Il Pino

Al fresco dining can be enjoyed during warmer climes at this romantic terrace restaurant set under the shade of a hundred-year-old pine tree and overlooking the bright blue Bay of Naples. Diners bask in the candlelight while an ethereal Mount Vesuvias looms in the distance. The menus (one for summer, one for winter) change seasonally, utilize fresh local ingredients and total approximately 50 euros for dinner. A variety of Italian and international wines are on offer from the grotto cellar below. 2009 Smart Luxury Award winner

Il Sirenuse

Chandeliers hung from vaulted ceilings hold hundreds of candles at one of the prettiest dining rooms in Italy. The entire menu is strong, but it’s the density of the decadent chocolate gelato that sends people home on a cloud.
