Description: Nothing is more important than the quality of the food served. The primary ingredients used are always fresh and selected according to the season. The treatment begins with oil, one of the most prized and rewarded, as the‘pietra bianca del Cilento’ and ‘extravergine di Montechiaro’. The restaurant Donna Rachele is characterized by use of “Typicalproducts of Campania” with eight slow food principals including the Beans of Controne, the Anchovies of Menaica, the “Colatura di Alici”of Cetara and the White Figs of Cilento, the Cacioricotta of Cilentoand the Provolone del Monaco.

Reviewed September 24, 2012

Found this small Ristorante not far from the main Piazza when looking for a non tourist place to eat. Very friendly front of house and relaxed dining area.Ordered whole grilled local fish -we could have ordered it salt encrusted also. Great salads. Grilled sqid,mussel pasta.Great local wine selection. Best lemon cello and rocket liquor ! Two tables available for couples on the balcony.
Have booked for dinner again tonight .

“Expensive, poor service, Food only average”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

The food was average but they forgot our wine order three times, forgot the sauce for my steak, and we waited a long time to take our order.

Nice atmosphere, staff were pleasant and knowledgeable enough, just didn't see enough of them, and the food was very expensive for what it was.

Overall, I would avoid.

“Nice food but pricey”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Like other reviewers, we were swayed by the Tripadvisor 5 star rating shown at the front of the restaurant. There was only one other table eating when we arrived, the waiter seemed friendly and as we were not very hungry we shared a starter and a pizza and had a drink each. The bill once service and cover charge had been added came to 50 euros which we felt was expensive bearing in mind we had only ordered one starter ,one main course and two drinks. On the plus side it was off the beaten track and a welcome oasis away from the melee outside.

“Great food yet overpriced !”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

Off the beaten path with excellent food but prices on the very high side ! But then it is Capri which isn't exactly a low price bargain island ! Musico bellisimo !!

“Smashing little place, off the beaten track”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We recently spent a weekend in Capri and for many of us this was our first visit. The temptation when looking for a place for dinner is to settle for one of the overcrowded places on a main square or street. Don't - if you take the time to explore you'll find somewhere ten times better, like this place.

It's only two minutes' walk from the upper Funicolare but a world away from the hustle. You will find simple food cooked very well with a big emphasis on seafood. The owners are obviously very proud of their fresh fish as they will bring it round to you several times while you are choosing your dishes. I can highly recommend the cold meat and cheese platter, served with a small pot of honey - the union of meat and honey was a revelation.

The service is not desperately quick so if you're in a hurry, you might be disappointed. However, you are in Italy, where food is meant to be enjoyed slowly, so I find it quite surprising that some people have genuinely complained about the speed of the service. It's a bit like complaining that French waiters are too French.

All in all a great spot - so good we went back.
