A long family's tale
Taverna Azzura is an adventure started more than 80 years ago, the journey has been full of dreams and conquests, love for the homeland, tradition and passion for the Mediterranean Cuisine.
An unfinished tale where the dream is still going on. Everything started in 1930 with Great-grandmother Teresa; she opened her tavern’s door to welcome local fishermen after a long day at sea. In the beginning it was only served cheese and wine, the cheese was an homemade product from her estate. The rest developed with Maria , sister of Grandfather Gennaro, one of the first fishermen to have a motor- boat.
Maria started to cook delicious dishes with the catch of the day. Maria’s son Salvatore, growing up in that environment, started to love the cooking, but he wanted to travel and discover the world. He end up in England where he opened a restaurant with combined Mediterranean and French Cuisine. After 20 long years he returned to Italy with Margaret, the love of his life. An important ally whom helped to carry on with the Family activity in the Restaurant. So for in 1980 the simple Tavern developed to an exclusive Restaurant appreciate by locals and others.
Taverna Azzurra was born.
Nowadays the Restaurant’s legacy continues with the help of Salvatore and Margret’s children : Gennaro front of the House , Luciano the Chef.
They have the same the same love for food as the parents.
