The atmosphere is warm and the staff top notch.They will make you feel like you are invited to a family dinner in your honor. And the food from appetizer, to entrees and dessert all taste like old family... More

Not only was the food fabulous, they had many dishes that sounded amazing but all four of us chose the homemade pasta with vongole, but in addition the atmosphere and the local... More

Vecchio Saracino serves dishes from the Cilento region of Italy. Seafood is a specialty of this restaurant. All quality food cooked fresh when ordered. Very friendly staff and a comfortable dining experience. There is indoor dining and also a nice area with tables for dining in the garden. One of the best restaurants in Agropoli. No visit to Agropoli is... More

We visited Vecchio Saracino for dinner and had a lovely time. The service was exceptional - the waiter was very courteous and kindly helped translate the menu for us. The restaurant setting is beautiful too - you pass a beautifully old, decorative stone well on your way to their romantically lit dining courtyard. Be sure to look out for the... More

Description
The real home of the Mediterranean diet. Our Cilentan kitchen is closely linked to the Mediterranean diet, a typical nutritional model of the ancient Cilento. The first to notice the benefits of a diet based on the products of the Cilento, and also on his way of life, it was the American Dr. Ancel Keys, who reported in his book "Eat well and stay well, the Mediterranean way" the reasons why these foods, and the way of living, they might makes more long-lived the humans. The main characteristic of the Cilentan cooking is quick, simple and full of passion for tradition. The fresh and selected ingredients, such as fish, vegetables, herbs, grains, olive oil, cheese, wine and fruit together with the famous buffalo mozzarella in the land of Paestum, are, braids, the secret ingredients of the Mediterranean diet. The fresh fish that arrives daily in our kitchens, tuna, anchovies, sardines, amberjack, snapper, bream, gurnard fish, redfish, shrimp, cuttlefish, octopus rock, which is abundant in our seas, is the main product of our dishes.
