Description: Thanks to the passion, perseverence and the complete dedication from Salvatore Criscuolo, better known as "O Capo" and his lovely unforgotten wife Teresa, the Polisportiva, renamed in "Le Bonta del Capo" is today one of the most popular and appreciated restaurants on the Amalfi Coast. Located in a privileged position, the location appears to be disputed between the intensiv blue of the sea and the brightness of the sky, nestled between lush harmonies of terraced olive groves, vineyards and lemontrees. On the terrace of Donna Teresa, where you have during the sunset the unique feeling to be untited with the horizon, where a deep red paint the nearby island of "Li Galli", directly in front of the "Faraglioni" of the flirtatious Capri, here you will find you enjoying the delicious regional cuisine accompanied by the finest wines of the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento. The timeless pizza contribute to give you a greater sense of being welcome and of the hospitality of Naples. As a reward for your appearance, you will be certainly attracted by the nearby "Punta Vreca", a breathtaking viewpoint in form of a ship overtopped with the tower "Capo del Conca", a natural ancient harbour, a defense post with vice-regal watchtower, designed to curb the invasions of the pirates from the seaside. Surely you do not pass unnoticed a quiet harmonious way in the nearby of the restaurant, which is called "Cinque Essence", meaning for San Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, who named this way during his walks from the monastery Santa Rosa. The monastery is a holy place and the birthplace of the famous and popular puff pastry cake Santarosa. Surrounded by olive, carob, pomegranate, grapes and lemon the bishop was inspired to call it "Cinque Essence". For those who love the sport, there is above the restaurant the possibility to use one of the two multi-purpose courts with artifical turf for football, tennis or volleyball. Also with a playground and entertainment games for the smaller of us. We are waiting for you, here in Conca dei Marini, where we have "In each window the sun and out each window the sea.

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed nearby as this is located in Conca Di Marina and is up in the hills so not near to Amalfi or Positano but if you are nearby this is the place to dine. We went three times and the food was excellent, and it was great value. The venue is basic but the view superb and on a balmy evening there is a large out side dining area.

“Great food and views”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Food and wine were top quality. Antonio looked after us so well! It was difficult not to eat too much. I think that if we stayed in Conca any longer the restaurant staff would stop asking us what we wanted to order and would just bring us any dish from the menu (with my obligatory ham and melon :) ). One great advantage of where the restaurant is situated is that we had to walk off all that food (and wine). Oh - and the divine views!

“Best Food on the Amalfi Coast”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

I've just spent the last three weeks travelling in Italy, from Venice and Padova region, down to Rome and now the Amalfi Coast. Without doubt the best food experience thus far is this wonderful restaurant at the top of the hill above Conca Dei Marini, sitting between Amalfi and the village of Praiano. The food was so fresh and beautifully presented,it's obvious that Antonio and his staff care very much about the food they are presenting.

“Literally crave this restaurant everyday, the best everything ever”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This is my and my entire families favorite restaurant in the world. We love it so much we had our wedding dinner there. Everything is so fresh and made from scratch daily. The menu has a great variety to choose from and there isn't one thing I wouldn't recommend. The staff is a wonderful family that makes you feel welcome and part of their family. I could go on and on. If anyone is on the Amalfi coast I would say its am absolute MUST to venture into Conca dei Marini and visit Le Bonta del Capo for sure!
