We have been in italy for 11 day and this has been by far the best meal!!!!! Florence Venice and Rome, and Sorrento no pasta has come close to the quality of homemade pasta as Al Grottino. Amazed by far:)) Anthony and Samantha

We had a wonderful time, spetacular lunch in Al Grottino, with special and dedicated service, so personal and passionate. More than the great food, the owner prints his signature to the house. A " cannot miss" place while in Capri. The restaurant is very beautiful, by the eay, very good taste! (also in food!!) Hope to be back here soon!

We had reserved a table in this romantic looking restaurant hours earlier but got the worst table next to the cashier, wardrobe and a freezing window (at the end of October). The best tables in the middle were given to Italian groups with no reservation. The food was ok, antipasti very good, Risotto Marinera excellent but Pasta Grottinelli weak.

Very nice restaurant, great services and fantastic food. Well worthy. Open at 18:00 hours at night. Try the specialty of the house, a sea food cocotte.

We revisited this lovely little indoor restaurant in late September 2016. A small, cosy, authentic Italian experience! We opted for the Caprese salad starter with extra soft Burrata cheese (think creamy soft mozzarella), followed by the house specialty which is a mix of shell fish and a small sweet aragosta (or prawns if not available) – served with pasta –...

My wife and I have been to Capri several times. By chance, we walked past Ristorante Al Grottino, saw people waiting for a table and decided it was just the place for us. What a terrific dinner! The staff at this family operated restaurant was as friendly and helpful as they could be, recommending dishes and wine. All of their... More

Friendly small restaurant off the main square in Capri. We walked in at lunch & were the only customers. It's the #1 recommendation in our Fodor's so that was surprising. Very nice fresh salads & half bottle wine at reasonable prices. Indoor seating only. Owner assured us they are busier at diner, so you may want to get a reservation... More
