“Vico” derived its name from a small town in Southern Italy named Vico Equense, sometimes referred to as the “Gateway to the Amalfi Coast.” The owner is from this area and still has family and friends that remain in this charming waterfront region. This is why we wanted to bring the “Vico” experience to Farmingdale. Vico Equense shares the Lattari Mountain range, connecting it to Positano and other neighboring picturesque towns along the Amalfi coast. Overlooking the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius majestically rises in the distance, reminding locals and visitors of the powers of Mother Nature. Even though Vico Equense is centrally located near Naples, Sorrento, and the Amalfi Coast, it has remained a less traveled and unspoiled destination. A short ferry ride from Vico Equense is the island of Capri. With its pristine blue waters and vibrant colored buildings, this sleepy little fishing village boasts some of the most vibrant glimpses of southern Italy’s charm, as well as the “Blue Grotto,” a unique phenomenon where small cave entrances open to large caverns inside the limestone mountains. Sunlight passes through an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, a blue reflection is created which illuminates the waters and is unlike anything seen anywhere in the world. These amazing blue tones have been recreated throughout the restaurant and bar area as an homage to Southern Italy’s amazing coastline. When you travel to Vico Equense and the Amalfi Coast, chances are you are visiting for fresh and robust food experiences. From handcrafted pasta made with the freshest ingredients to the seafood and vegetables harvested daily in local waters and gardens, southern Italy has everything for food lovers. Vico was created with this in mind. Fresh homemade pasta, daily curated meats, local seafood, hand selected vegetables are all part of the food experience we want to share with you. Thank you for coming in tonight and sharing our experience.
