We came here on a recommendation from people we met at our hotel and it did not disappoint. The gnocchi was the absolute best we've ever eaten. The red sauce was amazing and the eggplant parmagiana was incredible. We had a great caprese type salad with a smoked cheese that we loved and a scampi pasta that was also good.... More

You do have to be looking for this place, or you'll miss it. Many of the decorations are gorgeous wine bottles (with wine still in them), and we had beautiful red roses at our table. For some strange reason that we could never figure out, we were the only customers in the restaurant. We felt like we had found a... More

This restaurant is simply spectacular! I had the most amazing calamari ever and I have had that in many countries and restaurants. The local fish catch of the day was just as uniquely wonderful. Even the breadsticks were great! The decor is subtle and inviting as well. The owner is the son of the founder in 1940 and very friendly.... More

Wonderful views! On the Arco Naturale walk just on way out of Capri centre. Giovanni was our waiter and gave us valuable advice on things to do while we were there. Delicious seafood pasta.

We travelled from Ohio to Capri, Italy execting to find adventure. . . and we did! What we weren't expecting was to find a restaurant that not only served exceptional dishes but also made us feel completely at home. On our first night on the island we were exploring the many dining options near the Piazetta Umberto when we were... More

A bit remote from the main Piazza but very easy to find. Ask for advice if you don't really know what you want to eat as they also have specials. The staff is very welcoming and the food trully decilious. Off course the setting is a bit far from the Grand Capri and no see view here. which is welcome... More

Just a few meters away from the main Piazza on Capri town, Al Grottino ("The Cave") is tucked away below ground level in a small alley covered with an arched roof. it is charming inside, quaint and cosy, with lots of bric-brac decorating the walls. The closeness of the space provides for an intimate air, and you notice the photos... More

Being honest it's the best Italian restaurant I've been in Italy. The vegetable soup is so tasty. The ravioli is indescribable. Fresh, tasty and perfect food I've had. You won't regret being there and I will visit it again <3
