Great traditional Italian restaurant

We had a lovely meal here. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the food was great. We both had the special seafood pasta and it was brought to the table in a big casserole dish.

Our new friend, Aldo of Schettino Shoes, gave us a recommendation for lunch. It was here at Ristorante al Grottino. Both Schettino and Grottino have been open on Capri for 70+ years. This is an old school Italian restaurant with freshly prepared food in a rustic style. Not cheap (it's not a pizza place), but very nice people and a... More

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.
