Restaurants & Bars
In true Italian fashion, Hotel La Palma is a gourmand’s delight under the culinary direction of Chef Gennaro Esposito, a culinary hero in Italy, having run his own two-Michelin Star restaurant, Torre del Saracino, for the last 23 years.
A simple, stylish step back in time to the Capri of the 1950s, Gennaro’s embraces the timeless romance of the island, serving unpretentious, authentic Italian cuisine. A contemporary, vibrant place that shuns formality and celebrates the spirit and cuisine of Capri, Gennaro’s also benefits from being right next door to the great Taverna Anema e Core.
Local legend chef Gennaro Esposito has built his reputation in the region, across Italy and beyond thanks to his two-Michelin-starred restaurant, Torre del Saracino, located in his hometown of Vico Equense on the Gulf of Naples. After successive career-defining mentorships under chefs Gianfranco Vissani and Alain Ducasse, a 22-year-old Esposito decided to return home and open his own restaurant in 1992. Known for his avant-garde approach to Italian cuisine, Chef Esposito’s impeccably high standards, his love of the finest, freshest ingredients and his desire to delight can be savoured in every dish that leaves his multiple kitchens at Hotel La Palma.
