Is this restaurant run by a famous prima donna chef.....? No. Does it have fancy cocktails and designer furniture?....No. Does it have great local food, cooked by local people...? Yes. Does it have fantastic views over the sea..? Yes. Does it give value for money? Yes.

The yachts anchored off the azure shoreline of Capri suggest that this is an island to cater for the beautiful people, but if only they would wind their way up through the narrow and precipitous roads, they would find a gem of a restaurant, away from the bling of Capri Town.

It is a bit out of the way, but they provide a very efficient taxi service.

The views are magnificent, but the food and the service provided the icing on the cake.

Now, I don't know about you, but my philosophy is always 'when in Rome' when eating abroad. So, on an island, surrounded by fish, the choice had to be swordfish, accompanied by the juiciest, softest tomato salad, The fish was soft (unlike a lot of swordfish I have eaten which has been almost like meat) and sweet and completely fresh and untested about with.

Service was excellent and this had nothing whatsoever to do with the very handsome waiters.

If you are going to Capri, don't miss this. There is a mixture of both local and tourist trade, which is testimony to the quality of the food and service.

Great food in a very nice location. One of the better meals we had in Capri. My advice is to get there by subset as its a very nice place to watch the sun go down. The location is remote but they have a van that will pick you up in the center of Anacapri. For those of you who like to walk home there is a great walking path from the restaurant that leads back to town. It is well lit, very safe and romantic.

Food was excellent.
Met Theresa, the chef and his son. They are wonderful family and gracious host.
They have car service which comes to your hotel and drive you back.

Fantastic family run concern- much grown on the premises. Their own wine was excellent and great value. The homemade pasta was terrific. Amazing views. Friendly service, they are clearly passionate about what they do. Am going back in a week!
