“Tourist Trap”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Good views and decent pizzas, but it doesn't make up for the fairly brusque service and vast over pricing. 3 euro cover charge would should guarantee a basket of bread on the table - at 14 euro average for a pizza they can afford to be generous. I think I was the only Italian speaker in the place, apart from the staff, which says it all. Set up for the day tripper crowd that will be impressed with the view and average food. Bill was plonked down before I could order coffee and dessert - I'm quite glad that I took my custom elsewhere. Fair enough, but you can do a lot better.

“Great seafood”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Nice view and excellent portions. And, of course, a wonderful staff and a terrific caprese salad!

“Wonderful food and a view to die for”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Da Giorgio is on Via Roma just a few minutes before the Piazzetta. If you are staying in Capri make sure you ask the hotel to reserve one of the tables by the window otherwise you might be disappointed as the place is so busy and seating is tight - if you are lucky enough to get a table by the windows then you do have a beautiful view overlooking the Marina Grande etc
The food is delicious and I enjoyed a truly memorable bottle of Sassicaia. Without the wine the overall price for dinner would not be unreasonable for Capri - don't bother coming on holiday here if you are on a budget!

“Truly Disappointed.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We were wary of this restaurant given some of the reviews on tripadvisor. Eating at night, the view isn't so significant, but the food had been highly recommended. It's a very busy restaurant- possibly trying to cram in too many diners at the same time. The welcome was brusque and careless. Offered a table in the equivalent of a flight path, we politely asked if there might be other tables available. Told in no uncertain terms that there wasn't, we sat around, twiddling out thumbs for ages before a menu was proffered. By this time we'd had enough, so we decided to leave. If you only have one night here, there are plenty more restaurants to eat on the island.

“Best view on the island”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Saved the best for last! Views of the sea and Mt Vesuvius and the best food ever! Still dreaming about the linguini and clams!
