“Local restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

Lovely to be back to Lo Sfizio again this year. A locals restaurant offering exceptional food. It's one of our more casual nights (we go twice in our 2 week stay) as you really need flat shoes to walk here (up hill) but you are rewarded with great views en-route and a very well priced meal - in fact the walk back (downhill) is a pleasant way to walk off all the food. The pizzas are perfect (not too thick) and the choice of main course is impressive for a small place. We don't book, but you can and maybe should as you could have to wait for a street side table outside, inside is air conditioned and the food tastes just as good whether you are inside or out.
Expect activity on the small lane it is situated on, locals going home from work, kids playing etc all adding to the evenings experience.
Highly recommended

“Away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist centre.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was a lovely dinner, away front the centre of Capri, and right into the heart of where the locals are. Spacious setting - both outside and indoor seating area. The food was very nice, very big pasta meals for first course, beautiful pizzas, and good wine selection. Friendly accommodating staff who offered to move us to a table outside when a kid's party of about forty turned up ten minutes after we did! So nice to be away from the 'touristy' crap that frequents the busier areas of Capri. Be prepared for the twenty minute walk uphill to this restaurant, but the view along the walk and the food on arrival are completely worth it.

“Lovely outdoor seating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

We had two pizzas which I would have to say were good but not great compared to the pizza in rome but the service was very nice and we did have complimentary limoncello (our first time, we ended up ordering it throughout Italy after this experience). The owner seems very involved but service seemed a bit slow.

“Charming and Wonderful Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

We ventured in here upon reading the great TA reviews. The staff was warm and wonderful. All I remember from the meal is my wife saving a few pieces of pizza crust to dip into the mussel broth. The waiter caught wind of this, notified the head waitress and next thing we know, we have a frehsly-baked plain pizza with a drizzle of EVOO on our table, on the house!

Good food, good prices, good staff. And limoncello shots to top it off!

“great pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

great pasta, and nice service. A 10-minute walk from the piazetta makes it calm and without most of the tourists. The food is excellent.
