Staying a stone's throw away from Da Tonino at Hotel Villa Sarah, we chanced on it during meandering walk out to Ponte Noce. The promise of an elegant untranslated menu and a few
empty bottles of excellent wine in a modest window at the restaurant's gate lured us. We wound up eating dinner here
twice, both times with the restaurant nearly to ourselves, amid greenery, scenery and service rare anywhere, alone Capri. The staff showered attention and patient understanding on our 3 young children, even though the place hardly strikes you as a "family" restaurant. The sommelier has created a stunning list of regional wines and steered us to some gems, still reasonably priced (both >€65) for the exceptional quality. The food was imaginative, flavorful and beautifully prepared. Pasta with rabbit and pine nuts as well as the strawberry,
lemon, basil tartlet with herb ice cream and an ethereal local dessert wine were all outstanding.
The evening walk out and back only adds to the charm of the experience. A highlight of our week in Capri!

Two things I learnt about capri is that it's really expensive and that the food i experienced was pretty average. Da tonino was better than the rest I experienced and while expensive not a total rip off. The food tries to do something a little bit different, not sure it's all that successful, for example we had a squid dish that was supposed to have horseradish in - you could not taste it.

If you like/know wine then this your place. An amazing wine list. Well over 1500 bottles to choose from.

The location is lovely and the walk to get to Da tonino is a pretty amazing stroll through capri.

I gave this review three stars for a combination of the food and cost.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch and wine at Da Tonino and thought it the best value meal during our stay in Capri. The menu offered greater individuality, rather than typical fare, and was of a good quality. We would return to this restaurant upon our next visit.

We loved everything about this restaurant. It was a lovely adventure to find this restaurant (about 20min walk from the main square)- but worth every step of the way there. Morrito at the restaurant had organised the menu, seating and served us brilliantly. We even got a tour of his amazing wine cellar!!! We had an excellent time with 27 of our guests for the start of our pre wedding celebrations. This was the best venue to start our love and laughter weekend. Food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. The views were great and we were fortunate to have the entire restaurant to ourselves. I highly recommend that you book at this restaurant, especially for lunch.

This was such an excellent meal - we has extremely good service throughout (and not intrusive). A very helpful sommelier who directed us to some beautiful wines. Our meals were cooked superbly and the menu was interesting and local. I would without doubt go there again when I am next in Capri.
