Il Comandante is Romeo hotel’s gourmet restaurant, awarded a Michelin Star in 2012.
Il Comandante, which means The Captain in Italian, was the title given to Italian shipowner Achille Lauro, whose historic headquarters were located in the building where the Romeo hotel now stands. The restaurant was once his office, the historical site of Lauro’s naval fleet.
We like to imagine this place as a ship’s bridge, looking out over the bay of Naples, the port, and the ships arriving and departing in a landscape constantly in flux.
Our kitchen evokes the charm of a voyage: the great muse is the Mediterranean, the “mare nostrum”, a melting pot of people and cultures, tastes and traditions, where our head Chef Salvatore Bianco elaborates ingredients with respect and passion.
Dinner at Il Comandante is characterized by an elaborate cuisine, merging ingredients from the land and sea with cosmopolitan nuances; Chef Bianco’s cuisine aims to exalt the taste of each carefully selected ingredient and provide a multi-sensory experience. Everything is wisely accompanied by fascinating gastronomic rituals and sophisticated service.
On weekends at lunch time, on the other hand, Il Comandante Bistrot proposes a lighter and more dynamic menu, emphasizing the use of finely selected local ingredients, with a more informal and casual approach.
Enjoy the experience.
