Stopped here on a whim - pleasant folk, crowded room, I think the food was okay (gameri con maionese, piccata al limone; bottle of wine) 73 euros. Next door is Boca de Bacca - much better.

Amazing seafood pasta and warm welcome by the staff! We walked by during a quiet time, when most of the other restaurants nearby were closed. The owner was probably about to close himself when he saw us and welcomed us in for a meal. Such unexpected hospitality and amazing food! Definitely would go back on future trips to Capri.

This place sure knows how to make good pasta. The service is excellent and the prices are decent. I had the vegetarian raviloli and can clearly recommend it.

The hospitality we experienced without reservations at Al Grottino was remarkable. We went early, as Americans tend to do, and we had no problem getting a table in this tiny place. Gianfranco treated us like family and we appreciated his recommendations with regard to the menu. My husband enjoyed the homemade ravioli, and I enjoyed the Caprese salad with buffalo mozzarella, my favorite!!

It was interesting to see so many photos of celebrities dining at Al Grottino, going back to the 60's. Just more evidence of Capri's popularity with the jet set.

The location just off the Piazzetta is in a charming & quiet alley, but just steps from the people watching and evening cocktails in the heart of Capri town. We would definitely return to Al Grottino!

This is the second time we went there. The first time we do not remember (also not badly). Today we got spaghetti all vongole and a local fresh pasta with fuori di zucca e gamberetti. Well done. Best pasta so far in this trip. Close to da Tonnino, but not yet at that level. Service was good. 26 euro per head a good price for Capri.
