Fodor's Expert Review Palazzo Petrucci

$$$$ Mergellina and Posillipo Italian Fodor's Choice
Overlooking the beach at the 15th-century Palazzo Donn'Anna, the Michelin-starred Palazzo Petrucci doesn't lack for dramatic dining options. On three levels, one of which is their lounge bar, diners are practically on the beach, with a glass partition revealing the kitchens. Fortify yourself with a complimentary glass of Prosecco before agonizing between the à la carte offerings and one of the three menu degustazioni (from €90 to €150). A popular starter is mille-feuille of local mozzarella with raw prawns and vegetable sauce. The paccheri al impiedi (large tube pasta served standing on end) in a rich ricotta-and-meat sauce is an interesting twist on an old regional favorite. The interior is elegantly minimal; the culinary delights are anything but.
