Critically-acclaimed and family-run
Lo Scoglio was esablished by the De Simone family in 1958, and the restaurant's lively ambience and world-renowned recipes have been passed down through the generations.
The beauty of Lo Scoglio lies in its unfussy, flavour-forward menu that puts classic Neapolitan gastronomy and catch-fresh spoils from local fisherman front and centre.
With open arms, the restaurant welcomes A-list celebrities and Hollywood heavyweights through its doors, and is a prime candidate for those on an Amalfi Coast yacht charter looking to induldge in a long lunch. Yet it lacks an affected energy, and has managed to cling on to its rustic Italian charm.
It is equally popular with locals, and regularly pulls in visitors from neighbouring towns and villages looking to sample the most authentic dining experience in Campania.
A Mediterranean gem
Once you've arrived at Lo Scoglio, the rest of the world will fall away.
Meaning boulder in Italian, Lo Scoglio boasts an enviable situation perched on the rocks overlooking the crystal-clear ocean. Diners will feel immersed in the sounds of the waves, the smell of the salty air and warm sun beating down.
The restaurant's connection to nature is evident in their use of locally-sourced ingredients, which come from neighbouring farms and markets. Menu staples include melt-in-the-mouth linguine laced with bottarga, lemon zest and shrimps and salads dressed with zucchini flowers and mozzarella.
After a divine meal, diners can head down to the beach to cool off in the shimmering sea. Rocks littered along the coast provide diving and sunbathing spots, while the beach is invariably popular with those looking to stretch out and top up their tans.
The venue is home to hotel accommodation and long jetty with a luxury yacht service for those arriving by yacht, making it ideally suited to for anyone on a Mediterranean yacht charter.
