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.

Le Bonta was within walking distance of where we were staying. It happened to be a night we did not want to venture back out after a full day. What a great surprise this was. Excellent food (actually the best in the area). Pasta and the streak was especially good. Great wine list and attentive service. Must go!

Kind Antonio, the proprietor and his father provide a complimentary taxi service to and from this great restaurant. We were in Amalfi for one week and we visited three times. Hospitable staff treat all enquiries about food and wine courteously and knowledgably. The menu is imaginative, the food is fresh and beautifully cooked. Chef Fiorenzi, visits each table and graciously accepts the praise his work deserves.

The standard of comfort and the exhilarating view make this one of the finest restaurants we have visited in Italy.

Was highly recommended by a knowledgeable local. An ocean view restaurant, sitting on a veranda overlooking the Amalfi coast, serves a variety of local dishes. The ravioli with ricotta and lemon was delicious - be sure to try it, and so were the ravioli with cheese and citrus and the homemade pasta with sea food.
The service wasn’t good but the food was excellent. Prices very reasonable. All in all - recommended.

This restaurant is a must do if in the amalfi coast! The staff goes above and beyond to make a great experience. To start they will pick up and drop off from place staying. The chef Fiore is amazing he comes around and interacts with the tables. He will take you into kitchen to see the magic happen. The food is great. Ate there 4 nights and every meal between the four us tasted incredible. Can not describe how much I enjoyed. Best ever.
