starting from the name

The name expresses and contains the essence of the restaurant, to make immediately people think about dishes cooked by… “wapour”.

Actually, W is even the first letter of the concept ‘Wellness’, because we try to avoid fat cuisine and raw materials and cooking methods which could be heavy or that could undermine the health of the hosts. Nevertheless, our courses are very testy, unique and we wish they’re capable to satisfy even gourmet tastes. Lastly, Wapo makes an assonance with the Spanish word “Guapo”, which means beautiful, fascinating: in fact, the architecture of the place is well-finished in every detail.


Giovanni Gentile

Young and dynamic, from Ercolano, great school of Vico Equense education with an international hospitality experience, is the resident chef of Wapo: “For me, cooking means being at a incessant research of the salt of life. Chemistry of aliments can be real magic. When I’m in the kitchen of Wapo, 100% natural food, I feel like a ethically better chef”.
