“Great meal and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Our waiter was friendly, though it seemed like there wasn't much of a system to it as we had about 3 different people serving us so it was a little slow at times. The slowness was a non-issue for us though as we had a lovely view.

There are expensive items on the menu - some of the meats for mains are 50Eur however pastas were around 14-20Eur. Our meal was just over 60Eur total (bottle of water, 2 pastas, 1 side, and 2 desserts +15%) so just as easy to eat on a "lower" budget and we were very full.

Definitely book at least around lunch time for dinner reservations otherwise they will be full! Would also recommend giving them the hotel you're staying at (or have your hotel book) as we were only charged the 15% not the cover charge and they kept track of the hotels next to your name in the reservation book.

“Great food and fantastic service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My husband and I went on our honeymoon with the high recommendation from our hotel concierge. We even special ordered the Nero di sepia (squid ink) pasta that morning, and they were very accommodating. When we arrived, we had very delicious fish carpaccio, followed by the squid ink pasta - and it was probably the best one I've ever had with baby calamaris! We had the main dish, which was the catch of the day. For dessert, the restaurant surprised us with a wedding song playing in the background, as well as with dessert and grappa. We had an amazing experience - both from a culinary and service perspective. On top of that, the location with the view of the rocks in the background was amazing! Definitely recommend for a cozy and romantic occasion!!

“Top end restaurant - wonderful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Reading through the reviews on tripadvisor we were concerned that the service would be poor, average food and very expensive. But our hotel highly recommended visiting and their other tips had been great so we felt it was worth a visit. Thankfully we made the right choice as the dinner was excellent. Firstly definitely make a booking as it gets very busy (so can't really expect the best seat in the house if you don't). The views were magical from the terrace and also from inside near the windows. Book for 7.00pm or 7.30pm to make the most of the magical view. We felt for European top-end restaurant prices it was on par and especially for Capri. Entree was €12-€20 and mains were around the €16-€26. The meals are large so could easily share an entree and then just enjoy the mains separately. If you love seafood you will love this restaurant. The seafood Risotto and Seafood special pasta were excellent. We also had the chicken with mushroom sauce which was moist and tasty. The service was friendly and welcoming. Yes it could be a little quicker as we did have to pour the wine ourselves quite a bit, but it didn't ruin the evening. The ambience was sophisticated and relaxed. This restaurant is not fine dining but top tier.

“Location location location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This restaurant boasts probably the best location in Capri Town - overlooking the Gardens of Augustus. Course-by-course, the food was of a consistently high standard, with particular praise going to the pasta and risotto dishes, which were exceptional. We also enjoyed one of the best bottles of greco di tufo we've ever had. The staff were busy but attentive. Probably due to its position so close to the expensive hotel and boutiques of the town centre, it does seem to attract more than its fair share of the (overtly/visibly) moneyed set but, hey, you can't have everything...!
