Via Laurito, 1, 84017 Laurito Salerno, Italy
The dining room of the Zass at the San Pietro is begging to be updated (it has an old-world feeling in the literal sense), but for pure romantic atmosphere, a table for two at the edge of the terrace can’t be beat. Diners are seated at intimate tables that seem to hover over the sea, and if you’re lucky, you’ll time the beginning of your meal with the sunset. Belgian chef Alois Vanlangenaeker (it’s easy to see why everyone calls him by his first name) has a Michelin star and oversees a lengthy menu of dishes that includes local specialties as well as international fare. Most memorable is the electrifying sunset, the smooth sea hundreds of feet below and the views of Positano illuminated by hundreds of lights. Reservations are recommended.
