Relax and design at the foot of Mount Vesuvius
Ninfea restaurant, once an icon of Neapolitan cuisine around the world, shines once again in Akademia Cucina and More. A dream, that of Adriano Gigante who took his first steps at Ninfea, that became reality.
The huge white building that rises from the water was named after the ancient Roman villa built by Marco Tullio Cicerone, who was fascinated by the calm shores of the lake. A place dedicated to relaxation, with spaces that are well divided and finely furnished.
“My dream is to keep Akademia open forever, and I hope that at the same time it becomes a door-opener for all my collaborators. I hope, in the future, they will be able to work in famous restaurants bringing the experience they have acquired here”, comments Adriano Gigante.
“Taking care of the aesthetics has become fundamental in the restaurant business: everything needs the attention in detail and must be perfectly in line with the spirit of the room. For such a location, thermaline is the perfect solution. With an elegant and streamlined design, this range integrates perfectly with the surrounding space, transforming the kitchen itself into a piece of furniture”, states Adriano.
At Akademia, the kitchen, which was once hidden, has been brought to the sight of the guests. Only a window separates it from the dining room and the kitchen now is clearly visible from the bar area. It places the spotlight on the Chef and his brigade.
The undisputed eye-catcher is the thermaIine Modular 90 cooking block, chosen for its essential design.
“Among its features of the latest generation, the most appreciated and desired part of the cooking island is the wide surface induction top. It is ideal for delicate and express cooking; the induction is also a guarantee of cleanliness, order and less heat dispersion in the environment, which are highly important characteristics.”
Akademia boasts a complete Electrolux kitchen with a thermaline Modular 90 cooking block, air-o-system (oven & blast chiller), ecostore refrigerated cabinets, refrigerated bases, food preparation equipment, 2 green&clean hood type dishwashers, a ventilation system and a customized preparation area.
