We arrived here on a cold and stormy night and we were seated by an open window. We had to actually ask the server to close the window because it was so cold. There wasn't much of an atmosphere if you call hanging christmas lights and fake vines from the ceiling "ambiance." For starters, we shared a seafood pasta which was OK but very fishy tasting and had a scant amount of seafood. For mains, we both had the fish. I can't recall which fish it was but it was obviously not memorable. Service was really slow and inattentive. We really couldn't tell why because it wasn't like that restaurant was that busy to begin with. Overall, I would not return to this restaurant.

Dear Mishan264,
Grazie for your review. We apologise your experience with us did not meet your expectations and our food was not to your taste.
We take pride in the relaxed and warm ambience we've created in our restaurant. We have an indoor garden terrace. The walls of the terrace are covered with living plants. We have two Ginseng Ficus trees that stand as tall as the ceiling, fresh flowers on every table and vines I planted 8 years ago that have grown significantly to now hang from the ceiling. We do not have any fake vines or Christmas lights in our restaurant (at least, not until Christmas time:)).
We hope you return someday to provide us with an opportunity to change your opinion.
Yours sincerely,
Gianluca D'Esposito

It is a cosy restaurant near the shopping area at Capri. We had a good portion of delicious clams & mussels, squid salad and lemon pasta to share. The owner was kind to help us portion the pasta. Although we had to wait a while for our food as the restaurant was packed, the freshness of the dishes was worth the wait. Too bad we didn't try the wine. Should try the wine if you have the opportunity. The owner also served us a little surprise dessert which he was not willing to share what was it.

Went there last night, no reservation walked in no wait. Service was very good however staff was short handed we recived our capreese salad which was very good, but it was a while before the main course was served. When we recived the main course they were very good my wife had the Spaghetti alle vongole which was excellent I had the ravioli which was very good. Waiter gave us a second glass of wine for free due to the wait. Overall the food and service made up for the wait. I would go there again and would recommend you try it.

Recently had lunch here... unfortunately the time to have food took so long that eventually we had a very rushed main course. The restaurant could not cope with amount of covers. Saying this though what we had was good.

Exquisite! Stumbled upon this and ended up so pleasantly surprised! Definitely a must if you're in Capri. My fiancé got the ravioli Caprese and said "it was perfect!" Great atmosphere and they gave us some complimentary Limoncello!
