I have been visiting La Fontelina for many years. It's one of those places that you associate with Capri in the same way as La Colombe d'Or is to St.Paul de Vence and Club 55 is to St.Trop. But this year I finally realised that the staff have been thoroughly ruined by the largesse of Russian visitors spending their Oligarchical fortunes and leaving hefty tips for the restaurant and bagni staff. The food is still good, although not as good as it used to be but the attitude is distinctly unpleasant and condescending even to regular old timers. By complete contrast Da Luigi on the opposite side of Faraglioni is welcoming, warm and a much better bet. It's also much better value with superior food and service. Hopefully the Ruski's will continue to overlook Da Luigi.
