Ristorante Caprera
Great alleyway seafood restaurant!!!!

We read that this restaurant was rated 3rd..and had to give it a try...before going to n.1 on our last night in Maddalena.
What to say...Caprera restaurant is very good.
We were surprised at first since we were the only guests at 8pm...and the waitress asked us if we wanted anything to drink first without even bringing us menus. After 5 minutes the host greets us and asks us what do we want to eat!!! No menus...nothing!
I'm rather shocked but later I'll realize that this is their method. Many items are not even on the menu so your best pick is to just listen and go with their recommendations. You won't get ripped off. These guys are pros!
We started with their best vermentino on the winelist Terrae. Amazing!!!! Excellent for €25.
2 seafood starters (an assortment of 6 tastings), tuna alla garibaldina, fregola sarda with shrimps and porcini mushrooms, 2 desserts (tiramisu and crema catalana), 2 espressos and a bottle of sparkling water...€85.
if we had more time we'd definitely go back.
No wonder this place was packed when we were leaving at 930...the busiest restaurant so far at La Maddalena....and there is a reason for it!!!!

I was in La Maddalena on Monday in April, so not so busy. After finding a few places closed I was left with Caprera after quickly consulting tripadvisor with my phone. We were 2 and we shared a mix seafood starters something really fresh and tasty if you like seafood. Then I tried pasta with ricci di mare -sea urchin- which I could not resist to try once again very good. Two glasses of wine we were charged 50 euro which for the area is relatively economical.I would go back.

I have been craving linguine and claim sauce ( pasta vongole) so the local I am staying with take s us to his friends restaurant, he has a lot of friends that own restaraunts but I am thankful he picked this one. Being on an island makes the seafood so fresh. Starting with calamari, not at all chewy. The vongole was so pure and perfect. I did learn that it is frowned upon to put parm on seafood pasta, or combine butter with tomato sauce. Who knew? Not me, I re ally wanted parm on my pasta!

I do recommend to follow the advice from the owner rather than follow the menu. Some good surprise could be hidden in the chicken that are not reported in the menu. Fish is their main food. Meat is also recommended.
