Fusilloni cozze e pecorino
Sobriety is the watchword of the Il Fortino Restaurant, which is countered by a careful attention to detail. Peppe Sferratore, the owner, does not love pomp and finds his stylistic code in simplicity. The excellence of the strongly traditional cuisine is reinforced by the search for first choice products and sober and original reinterpretations that aim to enhance the characteristics of the raw material, without artifice. The excellence of the cuisine is well matched by a frame of choice, which sees the restaurant wedged between the Bay of San Francesco and the Chiaia beach, one of the most picturesque places on the island.
