We were there in July, met the owners and had a great lunch. Local swordfish grilled, local white wine (yes there is wine made in Capri) salads. Excellent service, food and location.

The Caprese salad was ok, but the mozzarella and tomatoes were pretty poor quality, the pasta and Capri cake were excellent though and we thought twenty euros was not bad for three courses in Capri. The house wine was nice and the service excellent. The place itself is steeped in history and we liked the atmosphere (it was also nice and cool!). We had a really nice lunch.

This was one of those highly rated, celebrity sighting restaurants that you feel you need to go to while on the island. The restaurant is dingy, the service mediocre and the food so-so. What am i missing? sorry to say, not worth the bother

We stayed in Capri for ten days and went to lots of restaurants. This one, as well as the restaurant at The Blue Grotto was the biggest rip off. The mark up on the wine was horrendous. The food was very salty. We will never return.
