Donnanna review Rate it

This stylish white and mirrored restaurant stands by the Bagni Elena, opposite Vesuvius and beside the ghostly Palazzo Sant'Anna, where it's rumoured Queen Joanna seduced muscle-bound fishermen before drowning them to ensure their discretion. Local art students created the Tiepolo-inspired Pulcinella frescoes. The owners, event organisers Sire, are responsible for state banquets and suchlike, so everything is hushed and polished; the organic ingredients are the finest money can buy. Typical fare is tonarelli pasta with cicala di mare (a crustacean), tomatoes and basil-scented oil or langoustines in saracen grain tempura. Desserts are exciting: Schweppes tonic and red wine sorbet, and orange tart with chocolate mousse. Call ahead, as it's often closed for private functions.
