Named after the famous Hollywood director, who stayed at the old Palazzo Sasso (today renamed Palazzo Avino) in the 1950s, the fine-dining restaurant of the hotel is grand, refined and serious. It has garnered two well-deserved Michelin stars for a lengthy and complex Mediterranean menu. The ambiance in the dining room is hushed and a bit too formal for a resort setting—purses get their own teeny chaises, which feels off in casual Ravello—but the innovative dishes are truly a diner’s delight. The wine list is extensive, but the sommelier is happy to recommend vintages, especially local Campania ones. Dinner only; closed November–March.
