We went for lunch and got a surprise when we saw the price of the items on the menu. It was our own fault for not reading the menu outside before we went in. Not wanting to spend our daily budget on lunch we shared a
Pizza and had 2 glasses of wine.

The pizza was tasty but we felt a little cheated as the meal came to €36. There was an addition lunch charge and service charge included.

While the restaurant has a nice view, it is spoiled a little by having a plastic covering all the way around.

Went here for dinner with my wife. I ordered a seafood risotto which came undercooked and looked like someone tipped half a bottle of tomato passata over some risotto rice and added a few clams. Then proceeded to serve it whilst still needing another 5 minutes cooking.

We ordered a tomato and rocket salad. It was chucked together with the woody stems of the rocket and no dressing. Also ordered some grilled vegetables which had been well grilled........around two days earlier and we're served cold and tasteless.

My wife got some home made pasta with pumpkin and clams that was thick gloppy and underdone as well. The service was ad hoc as no wine list was provided on arrival and no side plates for the bread until we asked twice.

The place ain't cheap as you are paying for the view and the restaurant relies on this.

Avoid at all costs. I cannot recall a restaurant where I have been this disappointed. Best you buy a takeaway pizza and a beer and sit on a step somewhere to get a good view of the island.

The people running this place do not care about anything.

Oh! One good point. The bread was fresh.

Beautiful location but smokers in all areas despite it being an enclosed space Tap water was not available. Our glass of local white wine was warm and undrinkable our freshly squeezed lemon was straight out of a bottle . Our salads were fine but dull the service was rude and poor and 12% service charge,was added to our bill
I would recommend giving this place a very wide berth

Great view, but a cold experience in November; 15 degrees, no service (except charging 15% for service), recommending "today's" speciality; a "primi piatti" which was a very ordinary pasta for double price.

Our group was recommended this restaurant in Capri.After we returned with the cable car we stopped at this restaurant. The service was ok but the dishes arrived a little slowly.The choice in the menu was excellent and the food was very good and tasty.The problem was with the beer which was charged at eight euro a bottle !They did not gave us a beverage menu so this price was quite unexpected.The other unpleasant surprise was the bill:I was charged both 15% service charge and an additional fix charge per cover.The price of the Greek salad was high but acceptable.
My advice is to ask for the price of anything you order that is not in the menu.
