Family run establishment, it offers excellent quality food with an extremely friendly and relaxed service. We had pasta, grilled porcini mushrooms, a delight of taste and freshness. Will be going back there on the first occasion

“Lovely place to dine; Wonderful Service - in short, a delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

On a whim we stopped by this delightful restaurant located in the heart of Capri for a quick lunch. In short - it was a delight.... Non-Italian speakers - harken: staff is SO friendly and accommodating you don't ever feel about ordering in English. The seafood was so fresh - we had sauteed mussels and clams that were amazing; and a terrific ravioli dish. Prices were very reasonable and we were made to feel very much at home. This is NOT a "flash" restaurant - but it is a delightful, quiet, place to have a great lunch. Atmosphere is perfect and we thought the price was spot on. Loved it!

“local fresh simple”

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.

“Nice and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013 via mobile

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.
