Fodor's Review

Within the picturesque Borgo Marinaro harbor, in the shadow of Castel dell'Ovo, it's as if you're eating aboard a transatlantic cruise ship. With the Bay of Naples setting and Vesuvius the backdrop, you can understand the nautical decor, blue tablecloths, and the menu abrim with fish delicacies. (Foodies will also wish to note that this was the site of the Roman villa of Lucullus, the moneyed aristocrat famous for his passion for luxurious dining.) A best bet is the schiaffoni with astice and pescatrice (large flat tube pasta with lobster and angler fish), or one of the tasty pizzas, but leave room for the dolce of the day (great homemade tiramisu or pear cake with ricotta). If after one too many limoncellos you feel like crashing, just head upstairs in this make-believe ocean liner and book one of the bright and airy guest rooms in this newly opened hotel.
