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.

The food at Donna Rachele is fantastic! Maurizio and his staff made us feel welcome and were perfect hosts for our lunch on the Isle of Capri. My son loved the Margherita Pizza and the rest of the family ordered various pasta dishes that made our mouths water. Not only did the food look and smell appetizing, it was delicious and tasted heavenly!

Our dessert was also amazing and we learned that Maurizio is also the Pastry Chef. I believe that Donna Rachele actually made my Mother-in-Law's Cappucino! We lingered after dessert and had a wonderful time talking with Maurizio. He showed us his personal recipes as well as pictures of some wonderful desssert creations that he has made over the years. If you plan to visit the Isle of Capri, be sure to visit Donna Rachele for a meal!

Attractive looking restaurant, but don't be fooled! Food poor (soggy pizza), service sloppy and dirty toilets - very poor value for the price paid. Steer clear!

Again eating lat on our Capri holiday our party of three arrived late at Donna Rahele, lured in by the sweet waitress who acclaimed the place to be bio and organic oriented. So far so good.

Seated very close to at huge party of noisy americans (sorry, but you tend to scream and calap a lot over almost everthing ;-), and live music, local guitarist giving it away.... And everybody singing. Very cozy one might think, but the accoustics of the place is a mess already, so the noise reached stadium levels.

Back to service and food. Headwaiters very knowledgeable, but so unfocused, that he dragged on star from this review. Busy busy with other tables rather than taking my order, it really ticked my of my trolley. Nice waitress form before saved the day. Ravioli super,followed by sliced beef napolitana..... had one slice , and the my daughter decided against the squid linguine and suddenly it was my meal. I loved it. Loved the taste of wine, fresh pasta, a super fresh squid, a little chili and parsley. Very good. The youngsters ravished the beef.

Winelist very extensive. Decided to go local Campania, being the last night on Capri, having the super Irpinia.

All on all, food is good, try he squid. Service is good, and get rid of the musician, i'll come back.

The tronchetto appetizer was the best starter we had in our entire 2 week trip. I don't even know what tronchetto is and we almost cried because it was so good. We were there for lunch, and it wasn't very crowded so we had a very pleasant meal. This restaurant does not boast any views, so if that's what you're looking for you may be disappointed. But the food is very good, our boat tour guide recommended this place to us. The prices are not cheap, but then again, almost everything about Capri is expensive.

Lovely food with a fantastic atmosphere. Live music from a local & very talented guitarist/singer who encouraged participation from all the diners! We had a great time - everyone enjoyed themselves & we won't forget this venue.
