Located on the main road to Amalfi near Ravello is the beautiful Villa dello Scarpariello. Da Mimmo’s Executive Chef Masood Masoodi had the great fortune to spend the summer of 2007 there with its owner Prince Don Luigi d’Angerio of Sant’Agata.

The original tower of the castle dates back to the 1100’s. Since the 1940’s it has been the private residence of the Prince. Famous guests have included kings, queens, ambassadors, ministers of Italy, and even Jacqueline Kennedy with her daughter Caroline.

You can have the opportunity to be treated like royalty! Seven years ago, the private castle was transformed into a luxurious hotel with richly decorated salons, rooms carved into the cliff of the mountain and a tower with an unparalleled view. Swimming in the Mediterranean, as well as in a saltwater filled swimming pool is possible.

While at the villa, the Prince gave Chef Masood their renowned family recipe that has been handed down for generations: Chicken alla Scarpariello for the recipe click here.

For more information on Villa della Scarpariello go to: You can experience what is considerd the “pearl” of the Divine Costiera, a very rare Amalfitan-Ravellian jewel.
Buon Viaggio e Buon Appetito!!!
