Trattoria da Eughenes: the best spaghetti with zucchini

Expert Travel Team’s Viewpoint

In the small town of Termini, just above Nerano, lies a culinary secret that has been attracting lovers of good food for generations: the Trattoria da Eughenes.

But beware, there is a subtle challenge that animates the conversations between the residents of the two municipalities in Massa Lubrense: historical rivalry.

And if there’s one thing we can’t agree on, it’s the name of an iconic dish: spaghetti alla Nerano or with zucchini?

In fact, in Termini, at Eughenes, the owner of this historic trattoria does not tolerate being called that. For him, it’s simply spaghetti with zucchini!

Yes, you read that right: don’t call it Spaghetti alla Nerano, otherwise you risk attracting his disdainful gaze.

Trattoria da Eughenes welcomes its guests in a rustic and familiar atmosphere, typical of the best trattorias in the area. The recommendation is to start with a house appetizer, followed by spaghetti with zucchini and ravioli capresi (another specialty). The main courses have good quality, while the desserts made by them always manage to complete the meal exquisitely.

But the real surprise comes when you get the bill: you spend so little here you won ‘t believe it.

The service is certainly Spartan, but it is this simplicity that will make you enjoy every bite like crazy.

Experience Trattoria da Eughenes with humility and without pretension, and you will come away more than satisfied.
