If you’re looking for a romantic location, spectacular views and fine dining, look no further! One of the most romantic places to dine at is found at the Grotta Palazzese Hotel Restaurant in the southern end of Italy in the town of Polignano a Mare. The “Summer Cave” is definitely not your ordinary restaurant.
This restaurant is actually a limestone cave, perched over a cliff, which was sculpted in the 1700s and used by royalty for functions which makes it even more charming! When seated inside the dining area you will be overlooking the beauty of the Adriatic Sea with gorgeous views of the nearby cliffs and the skyline.
You can enjoy your dining experience at the Summer Cave which includes a spacious dining or lounge area which you can enjoy by candlelight. Amazing seaside views amongst modern decor will take your breath away! If you opt for a luncheon the light provided from the sun creates the perfect setting for cozying up to your loved one! The best views are where the tables are arranged close to the ledge where right below you are breathtaking views of water, waves and marine boats.
Here you can enjoy Mediterranean & seafood cuisine and chose your favorite wine from an extensive menu. The “Summer Cave” is open from May to October while the “Sea Lounge”, the upper dining room, is open from October until April making the amenities available throughout all of the seasons. The Sea Lounge features panoramic sea views and is used for business and personal events.
If you happen to be in southern Italy, make sure to make room in your schedule to visit this unique place. Girls when invited for dinner here, make sure to dress for the occasion ;)
