The Piperna

After a long career in the restaurant business, Mr. Peppe of the “Scapricciatiello” restaurant opens with his son Christian in the square of Fontana the “Scapriccio Bistrot” which also includes a wine bar upstairs. It is possible to find local wines and liqueurs such as limoncello, rocket salad, melon cream and an assortment of biscuits, chocolates and handmade pottery designed by Mr. Peppe himself. However, the real gem is the tasting of their specialties: the Piperna, a bitter derived from the plant that has the distinction of flourishing on the island of Ischia and which here is served in small and tasty glasses of chocolate.
