Paul and Aileen Reilly, the brother-sister team behind Denver's Beast & Bottle, traveled to Campania in search of inspiration for their upcoming restaurant Coperta. Here are their best finds in and around Salerno, Italy.
When we went to Campania to research our new restaurant, we used Salerno as a base at the suggestion of a few Italians we met. Day trips to the Amalfi Coast were really easy by ferry, and Salerno offered the opportunity to stay in a city where Italians actually live. It’s a bustling city, and like many Italian towns, there is an ancient section with a Duomo. It’s also a university town, which gave it a really cool feeling of youth and vibrancy.
