Romantic dinner restaurants in Ponza

If there’s one hotel that knows what its doing, it’s Ponza’s Hotel Chiaia di Luna.

With their beautiful hotel rooms and trendy Le Terrazze bar, you wouldn’t expect anything less from its restaurant. And you shouldn’t.

My parents were staying at this hotel during my father’s birthday, and they invited my sister and I along with our boyfriends for a dinner celebration.

The restaurant’s location is beautiful, outdoor by the hotel’s pool with a wonderful view. On one side you overlook Chiaia di Luna bay and the sunset, while on the other the port of Ponza.

But lets get to the food. The menu is delightful, you’ll definitely have trouble picking.

Another great starter was my mom’s red prown carpaccio with citrus sauce and Mediterranean flavors.  Momma knows how to pick! YUMMY!

I have to say, Chiaia di Luna’s chef really knows what embarking on a culinary journey means. Everything was truly delightful. And the wine selection is no less.

If you plan on coming to Chia di Luna’s restaurant, don’t forget to make a reservation and be sure to go to Le Terrazze for a drink afterwards!
