“Off the main square, off the charts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Al Grottino provided my girlfriend and I (who is a vegetarian) one of our best meals in our two week trip to Italy. Eggplant parm was amazing with several homemade pasta dishes to boot! Terrific wine as well. You will have a meal to remember!

“Not recommended!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

I did not get the ravioli with ragu that I ordered. I was told that the meat had been removed! It tasted exactly like Ravioli Caprese. Why are the restaurants in Capri town so disappointing? They all seem to have the same menus and are way too expensive for the quality of the food. We've had lovely lunches in Anacapri and Faro.

“Pleasant staff; overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Stopped here on a whim - pleasant folk, crowded room, I think the food was okay (gameri con maionese, piccata al limone; bottle of wine) 73 euros. Next door is Boca de Bacca - much better.

“amazing seafood pasta and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Amazing seafood pasta and warm welcome by the staff! We walked by during a quiet time, when most of the other restaurants nearby were closed. The owner was probably about to close himself when he saw us and welcomed us in for a meal. Such unexpected hospitality and amazing food! Definitely would go back on future trips to Capri.

“really good pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This place sure knows how to make good pasta. The service is excellent and the prices are decent. I had the vegetarian raviloli and can clearly recommend it.
