“Great hidden resto in Anacapri”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This was a great place that our tour guide took us to. It is secluded and away from all the tourists, which we really appreciated. We had a light lunch that was filling and delicious. Prices are somewhat high, but you are also paying for the experience and the views. Normal cabs can't get to the hotel/restaurant, so there is a private cab/shuttle. The experience of the narrow roads and turns just getting there is worth it!

“best meal of our trip”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We spent two weeks in Florence, Tuscany (counrtyside), Amalfi Coast and Capri. This was the best meal of our trip! Everything was outstanding and very fresh. We still talk about the octopus and the house wines are very good!

“Memorable meal in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We ate lunch here in early September. Our tour guide suggested this restaurant and I'm so glad we took his advice. The setting couldn't be more idyllic high up in Anacapri overlooking the ocean and vineyards. We dined outside on the veranda and had one of the best meals of our 3-week trip in Italy. My husband had the swordfish which he said was great and I had the cheese ravioli which literally melted in my mouth. It was so light and airy and unlike any ravioli I've ever had before! Everything is home grown and/or made (the veggies, olive oil, wine, pasta, etc.). We also shared an appetizer platter which consisted of roasted veggies drizzled with olive oil, buffalo mozzarella, fried zucchini flowers, figs, etc. It was beautifully arranged and so tasty! I would dine there again in a heartbeat. Eating there made for a memorable day in Capri.

“Best Ravioli ever! Incredible location”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Take a small car (free shuttle) up a winding road thru a magical neighborhood in Anacapri, to a sprawling vineyard with a fabulous view and beautiful pool. We had a delicious lunch, seriously the best ravioli I have ever eaten and a fabulous white wine from the vineyard. After lunch we strolled the grounds and walked by a poetry park and out to view of a gorgeous lighthouse. It was a lovely day! When we were done the shuttle was ready to take a back to the center of Anacapri. A little peace of heaven!
