Hotel Restaurant La Pergola is situated in the Cilento National Park and Vallo di Diano, in the peaceful and uncontaminated ambience of San Giovanni a Piro, by the beautiful Policastro Gulf. San Giovanni a Piro enjoys a strategic position in the Gulf of Policastro. In fact while on one side it is a few minutes from the beaches of Scario, on the other side it takes not more than 20 minutes to reach the splendid coasts of Marina di Camerota and Palinuro. The Pianoro di Ciolandrea is a panoramic point where it is possible to admire the Campania coast that meets with the coast of Basilicata, Calabria until it reaches Sicily.
The Pergola´s Restaurant most famous courses are homemade gnocchi (pasta) with lamb sauce, fusilli (pasta) with porcini mushrooms and shrimp, all accompanied by the typical, corpulent, Cilentano wine.
A typical pleasant inn since 1968, today La Pergola is a welcoming family run hotel with a truly comfortable atmosphere in all its rooms, in the cosy lounge and in the pleasant dining room, where a rich buffet breakfast is served every morning.
The spacious dining room, with its rustic interiors, arched vaults and fireplace, is also the typical setting of fine dinners featuring samples of the Cilento and Mediterranean cuisine.
Staying at La Pergola you can enjoy the wonderful surroundings of San Giovanni a Piro, including the hamlets of Scario and Bosco, with its beautiful historic centre that is a labyrinth of little alley-ways and lanes that wind and intersect around the 2 ancient town squares: Piazza Teodoro Gaza, where you can find the Chiesa Madre (church) dating back to the 15th century, and Piazza San Gaetano.
