Lo Smeraldo


Welcome to the Smeraldo in Maranello, guided by the emotion of great cuisine.
The urge to find one's own habitat even in moments of relaxation is innate in man.
This is why the Lo Smeraldo Restaurant is special, paying particular attention to quality in all its aspects. Since 1985 we have made our restaurant the epitome of ambience, cuisine, professionalism and functionality.





Commendatore Raffaele Apicella's passion for pizza stems from a family tradition that combines in this dish all the experience he has acquired over time, (in fact, his grandfather Mattia was as famous as he was many years ago) and is at least equal to the love he still brings to his land
Tramonti, a charming village on the Amalfi Coast, and to its traditions.

The painstaking choice of raw materials completes the making of Casa Apicella's famous speciality.
A pizza known throughout the world.

Defiled but not hidden is the kitchen, a true creative space. A kitchen of yesteryear, albeit chrome and gleaming, equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, where the talented chefs give free rein to their creativity, preparing prestigious dishes.

The Lo Smeraldo Restaurant is also haute patisserie, the desserts created with passion as well as delighting the palate are true Works of Art that give an extra touch of class to every important occasion.

The pastry is made entirely in-house and is unparalleled, as the many customers who have had the opportunity to taste it recognise... because for us, desserts have always required great care.

We want to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy every type of dish, from pizza to the most refined, guided by our experience and passion for great cuisine...



To good food, Apicella combines good drink, thanks to a cellar stocked with hundreds of labels from all over the world.
They are served while observing all the rules of wine-tasting. Wines to be appreciated by sipping their taste, aroma and flavour in the wonderful splendour of the restaurant. A collection that stimulates the curiosity to taste even more wines during the meal, given the richness of the menu.

The Smeraldo wine cellar is worth seeing and admiring: seven hundred labels, almost ten thousand bottles, a computerised archive to track down the right bottle and an almost maniacal attention to order.
A large table in the centre suggests that the place is also used for special tastings.
If the wine list is unique, the Smeraldo does not limit itself to this and adds a list of Italian oils, with the characteristics of each and the most appropriate use, and finally a list of the best mineral waters.
