Maria Grazia, Nerano

Maria Grazia Nerano

Today I’m gonna reveal you one of the worst kept secret of the Amalfi coast… On a lively & colorful beach, there’s an always full restaurant, serving the best spaghetti with zucchini in the world.

I’m obviously talking about Maria Grazia on Nerano beach.

The recipe is secret &, despite the many tries, no one can make spaghetti with zucchini in the same way.

What I can tell you is that even though it seems to be eggs in the sauce, there are not. The creamy, tasty, thick sauce is made by a secret mix of different cheeses.

Book in advance, ask for a table on the front raw overlooking the beach (not only you’ll have a better view, but it’s also cooler) & prepare yourself to enjoy one of the best meals of your life.

As it’ll also be one of the heaviest meal of your life, may i suggest you’ll have some swimming, snorkeling & diving before 😉
That’s exactly what we did btw 🙂

We raised the anchor in the morning

My beach dress is from L’Antica Sartoria, a very well known boutique in Positano. They actually have several boutiques in Positano plus others in the nearby towns like Amalfi, Capri…

If you’re in the area is a perfect spot to treat yourself with a local, fashion souvenir 😉

They have very nice beach dresses, cover-ups & bikinis. Prices can seem high sometimes, but the always have a couple of stands with super-discounted items at the entrance of the store ;))

We took our seats in the cool shadow, enjoying the view of a typical Italian beach,

& sipped on white wine with peaches, a local specialty, while waiting for our main course to arrive.

They also have very yummy mixed appetizers (mozzarella, fried vegetables, potato croquettes, eggplant balls…), but I suggest to take them after the main course instead of before, so that you’ll still be able to enjoy the spaghetti with zucchini, it would be to heavy otherwise 😉

Happy & relaxed we took the sea again to come back home 🙂
