Thanks to the passion, perseverence and the complete dedication from Salvatore Criscuolo, better known as "O Capo" and his lovely unforgotten wife Teresa, the Polisportiva, renamed in "Le Bonta del Capo" is today one of the most popular and appreciated restaurants on the Amalfi Coast. Located in a privileged position, the location appears to be disputed between the intensiv blue of the sea and the brightness of the sky, nestled between lush harmonies of terraced olive groves, vineyards and lemontrees. On the terrace of Donna Teresa, where you have during the sunset the unique feeling to be untited with the horizon, where a deep red paint the nearby island of "Li Galli", directly in front of the "Faraglioni" of the flirtatious Capri, here you will find you enjoying the delicious regional cuisine accompanied by the finest wines of the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento. The timeless pizza contribute to give you a greater sense of being welcome and of the hospitality of Naples. As a reward for your appearance, you will be certainly attracted by the nearby "Punta Vreca", a breathtaking viewpoint in form of a ship overtopped with the tower "Capo del Conca", a natural ancient harbour, a defense post with vice-regal watchtower, designed to curb the invasions of the pirates from the seaside. Surely you do not pass unnoticed a quiet harmonious way in the nearby of the restaurant, which is called "Cinque Essence", meaning for San Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, who named this way during his walks from the monastery Santa Rosa. The monastery is a holy place and the birthplace of the famous and popular puff pastry cake Santarosa. Surrounded by olive, carob, pomegranate, grapes and lemon the bishop was inspired to call it "Cinque Essence". For those who love the sport, there is above the restaurant the possibility to use one of the two multi-purpose courts with artifical turf for football, tennis or volleyball. Also with a playground and entertainment games for the smaller of us. We are waiting for you, here in Conca dei Marini, where we have "In each window the sun and out each window the sea.

Although out of season we were lucky to have some sunshine so we sat outside on the large terrace with an amazing view. Unfortunately as they were not busy pizza was not on the menu until the evening, but there was plenty of other... More

My husband and I went to Le Bonta del Capo during our honeymoon in October. We were in Conca dei Marini very late in the season. Some of the hotels had already closed down for the winter. Because of that, we may not have been able to have the same excellent experience as other reviewers. That said, we must take... More

Stayed in Conca dei Marini for 7 nights with 3 other friends. In the morning, we would come here to have espressos and delicious hand-made cornettis. In the evening, we would also eat out here. The pizzas, the desserts, the seafood and the pasta were all exquisite.. The staff was always very welcoming and friendly. Finally, the chef Fiore always... More

I couldn't believe my eyes when I read the story of this restaurant on the menu...after the shuttle picked us up from our hotel. The owner drives you to his restaurant!

We stayed in Conca dei Marini for 8 nights and had all our evening meals here. Why go anywhere else? This became our home away from home. Salvatore, Antonio, Giusi, Giuseppe and chef Fiore provided great service and meals. The fish, bisteccha, antipasti, lemon ravioli, all were done to perfection. And the prices are very reasonable. The menu has great... More
