If the daters weren’t so busy batting their eyelashes at each other, they’d be swooning over the food. Aquapetra’s restaurant, La Locanda del Borgo, is Michelin-starred.
If you really want to impress your date, you could order the €80 euro tasting menu, which currently includes an aperitif, buffalo stracciatella with raw rock shrimp and chicory (try saying that after a couple of Proseccos), beef carpaccio, ravioli, and sea bass with chard and smoked oak mayonnaise.
(Just remember not to wear a skintight jumpsuit or a snug suit that will burst at the seams.)
In low season (ie. now), a standard room costs €195 midweek and Sunday, increasing to €260 on Friday and Saturday.
In high season, it’s €220 euros midweek and €260 euros on Friday and Saturday.
You may be relieved to know that they’ve been redecorated since the show was filmed, so the rooms aren’t quite so pink.
A junior suite will set you back €300 euros midweek and 400 at the weekend in low season, and €350 to 450 in high season.
Want to flash the cash? The top suite – which has a huge former lime kiln that has been converted into a jacuzzi with a glass roof – is €550 midweek in low season and 650 on Fridays and Saturdays.
And for the second date?
This region of Italy is a culture vulture’s paradise. After you’ve finished exploring the ancient Roman town of Pompeii, seek our Caravaggio’s masterpieces or take a guided tour of Naples’ atmospheric underground tunnels.
If your sweetheart is the outdoor type, you could horse ride up Mount Vesuvius, go cave-diving off the Capri coast or simply pootle around the vineyards on a bike.
Dating a foodie? Eat your way around the pizzerias of Naples – the birthplace of pizza. Or enjoy a long lunch at the fantastic farm restaurants, known as agriturisme, that you can find all over the region.
