Alfonso Martino, the re-founder of the long hotel tradition, has spent most of his life searching for the real south-center Italian cuisine, especially the Naples cuisine which was deeply influenced by Greek, French, Spanish and Arabian cuisine
It has been millions of years since mankind realized the benefit and taste of cooked food over raw food. During this time the art of cooking has continuously been improving searching for the point of perfection. Various intents to create "Nouvelles Couisines", however, have failed many times. The recipe's of traditional cuisine is like musical notations. Although you can have your own interpretation of any music, you can never change a note or you will change the music. You can never change the ingredients of a recipe for that matter. Some of our guests believe only to taste the "Tortelli di Ricotta", the ancient recipe of Sorrento, is worth staying at the Martino Resort. Reserve Today!
