“Great food, stupendous view”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Le Grotelle's location must be both a blessing and curse for those that work there - the view of the cliffs and sea from the terrace is outstanding and those looking for the Arco Naturale must pass right by the restaurant (which means that directions are constantly being sought from the staff). We ate here twice, as the view and the food, plus the restful atmosphere made it rather special for us. Its about 15 mins' walk from the centre of Capri, but a world away from glitzy shops and group tours. Service is friendly and the wine excellent. We enjoyed the linguine vongole and the best gamberoni we've ever had. We'll be back.

“Lovely place!!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went to Le Grottelle for dinner in the summer, after a little walk from Capri's town center we were surprised by this lovely restaurant with stunning views and great food! it was like having dinner in someone's house back garden, very chilled and quaint! worth the visit.

“Mama's home made ravioli”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is located just outside of Capri but can be visited as part of one of the must do walks which takes in a coastal path and some amazing views. The restaurant is family run and it was suggested that we try Mama's home made Ravioli alla Caprise, which was wonderful and probably the best pasta dish of the holiday.

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

My husband and I had read a review of Le Grottelle on a travel blog and decided we needed to try it. We asked our hotel to make a reservation for us, which I was glad we did as the restaurant quickly filled. Le grottelle is located at the “Arco Naturale” and you cannot miss the restaurant if you continue walking up Via Arco Naturale (we kept turning around as we felt we had definitely gone too far and it didn’t seem that there were any restaurants around- when you reach that point, keep going). It is a bit of a daunting walk, but a beautiful one and definitely worth it. We started with Caprese salad and focaccia. We were shown the fresh fish while reviewing the menu and could not resist ordering the sea bass to share. Once cooked, the fish was again shown to us, then brought back to the kitchen to be fileted. It was cooked so simply and one of the best pieces of fish I have ever had. The atmosphere, location, and food at Le Grottelle makes it a must visit in Capri!
