“Absolutely awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

We were referred to this restaurant by our hotel, Casa Mariantonia, so we were expecting a good experience. We had, by this stage in our holiday, eaten at at least 20 different restaurants, all of which were average/good to excellent, but La Rondinella was terrible. We entered to find only one other table occupied - a table of six conversing animatedly. Though there was another room, we were seated right next to the full table. The lighting was bright, non-intimate. The teenage waitress was difficult to flag down and spoke no English. The food arrived - pizza with mozarella so rubber-like and greasy that it was virtually inedible. The pasta was sickeningly creamy with a strange aftertaste. The wine like vinegar. The music became increasingly loud with dance music not condusive to eating with hoots of laughter from the staff as the music varied in decible. Finally we got up to leave, at which point a woman who looked very much the matriarch rushed over to make sure that we paid and, when we left, we saw her swoop quickly over to our table to snatch up the tip we left. (My husband insists on tipping, even with poor food and service). Basically, this restaurant seemed to be a business that subsists on hotel recommendations - and I can only imagine that there must be some nepotism involved.

“A bit disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

I had dined here before last year and this trip was a bit disappointing. The caprese salad was excellent but my husband's pasta with cherry tomatoes was not good and the pasta a bit overdone (the first time this happened this trip to Italy). The service is friendly and sitting outside in the breeze is really nice. Tirasimu was excellent.

“Excellent Simple Italian Food - Good Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2010

This restaurant in Anacapri was recommended to me and my mother by our taxi driver. It's a very simple, clean and rustic restaurant with outdoor seating on a flower bedecked porch. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and the food was simple but delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I know going to the island of Capri.
