The bathing establishment and restaurant 'Torre Saracena', with view of the Faraglioni di Capri, is situated in a dreamlike setting, in the heart of the picturesque bay of Marina Piccola.
Run by Giovanni di 'Pennaulo' and his wife Raffaela, with the assistance of Gemma and Giovanni, the property has remained largely unaltered since 1906 and the years immediately following the war, when it reached its maximum splendour.
Guests dining at the Torre Saracena's restaurant enjoy classical Mediterranean cuisine, prepared using ingredients of only the highest quality. The menu, featuring the finest fish and seafood, includes a great number of specialities from the centuries-old Island culinary tradition. Since the 1970's, the family's talented chèf Domenico Guarracino, has been creating dishes which find the perfect balance of tradition and innovation.
Torre Saracena, with its enchanting position, offers an idyllic venue for banquets, receptions, gala events and private parties.
The restaurant is open for lunch every day of the week, from April to October. Torre Saracena is also open on Saturday evenings, by reservation only.
