Un Piano nel Cielo (‘a floor in the sky’) is just that – a top-floor terrace with yet more amazing views of the Amalfi coast (and Capri). The indoor area is fitted with wall-spanning coast-facing windows, so you can still admire the vista, and has a special lighting system to make you feel as though you’re dining alfresco. Although, you could also book a table on the canopied terrace, a privileged perch for sunny breakfasts and starlit evening meals.
Ingredients sourced from the Sorrentine Peninsula, and some grown on-site, are crafted into inventive Mediterranean dishes by chef Leopoldo Elefante; and the seasonally updated wine cellar – with more than 3,000 bottles – is overseen by passionate oenophile and sommellier Rosario Landi.
The lavish breakfast buffet is something of an event here with freshly baked pastries, home-made cakes and tarts, warm loaves, smoked salmon, cheeses and meats, fresh fruit, pasta salad, an eggs menu and other hot dishes cooked to order.
