Enjoy Vesuvius views and high-end dining at Naples' Excelsior.

La Terrazza is the perfect place for celebratory dining. The food, with a strong emphais on seafood, is excellent, the service is lovely and the location is unbeatable -overlooking the Bay of Naples with [node:172840] in the background.

Food and drink

The difficulty will be deciding which of the delicious sounding dishes to choose, from millefeuille (layers of pastry) interspersed with monkish and baby spinach in a Moscato sauce to seared sesame crusted tuna with crispy vegetables with apple and citrus sauce. Then pasta with red scorpion fish and chilli or trofie pasta with clams and mint-scented pumpkin. And for secondi, try the châteaubriand with Béarnaise sauce or the mullet with pistachio, potato and pepper zabaglione (a creamy egg-based custard). Thankfully the chef knows his business and whatever you choose will only enhance your experience here.

Ambience

This is a classy hotel but, thankfully, the restaurant is smart but not overly formal (though jackets for men are requested and jeans and trainers, though not banned, wouldn't be overly welcome). It has an atmosphere of celebration simply because it's impossible to look out over the bay and not feel happy to be alive (and happier that you're sitting where you are). 

Service

The staff are smart and smiley. 

Location

Its location can't be bettered - on the top floor of the [node:164300]. 

Price advice

It's not cheap of course. Even the antipasti cost around 15 euros but if you were careful you could escape with paying around 60 euros a head.
