This restaurant is very overpriced. They charge a coverage charge. They did not allow us to sit where we wanted even though the place was less than half full. The waiter had zero personality and did not make us feel welcome.

This is a very busy, chic restaurant on a small street off the main square. We enjoyed pizza which we deemed the best ever (thin crust) as a shared appetizer and were very happy we did so. However, this is by no means a pizzeria. Rather, it is top notch with amazing pastas and fish, both of which we also had. Although the restaurant décor is pretty, it is hard to term this place romantic as it is extremely busy, noisy and the tables are very close together. We made friends with our American neighbors sitting to our right. This is a happening place which seemed to have many regulars. Although we wanted a table outside, we were seated inside as the outside seems reserved for said regulars. No big deal however as this is s great place to spend an evening. Top off your meal with some excellent lemoncello as we did.

Nestled on one on the narrow streets of Capri, Aurora is a perfect spot for a shaded, relaxing lunch. Very nice staff. Have the pasta fagoli. Homemade pasta. It takes a little while to cook, but worth the wait It is really delicious. A nice stop for a nice day of Capri.

don't let the name fool you, it's hardly a pizzeria, although some of the pizzas they make are absolutely unbelievable, and i know pizza, as i come from the new haven area with pepe's and sally's world famous among others. appetizers and pastas are off the charts, the quality is surreal as is the service along with a world class wine list. a true delight. if you don't believe me, go and look at the pictures of the past clientele. randy jackson, maria carey, stephen spielberg, beyonce, stallone, quincy jones and on and on. great location, about 100yds from the piazetta landing. indoors or outdoors with a gorgeous wine bar across the way for waiting if neccessary.

On our second visit to this, named to be, one of the best restaurant in Capri, was a huge disappointment, especially given a fact we have chosen this place as it was my partner's birthday.
Meals were completely different to what was it back in May and service was very poor. We are not sure why this had happened this time, it might be end of the season and they might be tired, but, in my opinion, it shouldn't be excuse if you're trying to stay competitive in this industry. Miserable surly staff really couldn't have cared less. Once we had finished our meals it took ages for the dirty plates to be cleared. In the end we had to ask for them to be taken away. Getting a bill was another mission and we have left this place on a very bitter note. Not sure are we going to try this place again as we are going to be back again in May next year.
