“FABULOUS LITTLE RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

My husband and i have been coming to Capri for almost 15 years. We really look forward to dining at Al Grottino each time we visit Capri. The food is excellent and Gianfranco is always so welcoming and friendly. The ambiance is very cozy and intimate and the menu selections and preparation of italian food is over the top. We so look forward to our trips to Capri and Al Grottino.

“Great little gem tucked away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

We were visiting Capri for the day with another family so 4 adults and 3 kids (under 9) in tow. We stumbled up on this little place and the host, Gianfranco Arbace, was very inviting. There was only 1 other couple in the place. He prepared a large table for 7 and we timidly made our way in. Within minutes, we felt like we had known this place for years! The service was excellent - waiters were very attentive. Mr. Arbace was delightful and it was fun seeing all the pictures of the celebrities from years past. We enjoyed some wine, some fabulous pasta and could not have been happier with our selection - what a find! Near the end of the meal they saw me looking at Frommers to see where we might venture next and happened to see they make the Frommers picks. I can see why. We felt like we had been privy to a small piece of Capri history!

“One of Capri's Best Hidden Secrets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

My wife and I have been returning to Capri annually for many, many years. There are countless restaurants...many of them in the "great" catagory. Surely, Al Grottino is one of them......small, unprepossessing and typically Caprese. Everything on their menu is wonderful...but their signature dish is Eggplant Parmesan......in this writer's opinion...the best in the world! The owner-host Gianfranco Arbace is the 3rd generation of his family to run this wonderful, conveniently located restaurant. If you visit Capri, do yourself a favor & dine there!

“Best restaurant in Capri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

I and my wife ate very well in this place. Among the various restaurants visited on the Capri Island this was the best. The food is excellent, the price good, and the service very good.
The restaurant is run by the owner that really care about is customers and personally serves at the table.
