“Good food, great location, friendly staff”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We came across this restaurant whilst wandering around Capri. It has a great setting with lots of outdoor seating on a peaceful street. The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and spoke good English. The pizza was huge - the biggest and the tastiest we ate whilst in Capri. Extremely tasty and fresh. The deserts were nice but not amazing - but a good all round restaurant.

We expected it to cost a little less than it did. For 2 courses each, a shared starter and drinks it was about £30 each. For £30 we had eaten at better restaurants in Capri. But it is an ideal restaurant if you are having a wander around Anacapri and need a bite to eat.

“unpretentious trattoria in Anacapri centre”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Located close to the main throroughfare, behind St Sophia church, this simple trattoria seems as popular with locals as it is with tourists: many come and buy take-away pizza from the wood-burning oven, and the evening I was there a dozen children in their Sunday best were noisily enjoying their pizzas in between darting in and out of the restaurant to play on the piazza. Oblivious to their racket, a young couple were holding hands and gazing into each other's eyes - at the end of the meal a small cake with three candles on it was delivered to their table with much applause, so I assume they were celebrating their third anniversary.
So lots of atmosphere, but what about the food? Unexceptional, not a huge menu but enough choices to please most people except vegetarians. My salad of octopus and potatoes was cooked to perfection and had great flavour as well as the right consistency. The pizza Caprese was excellent.
A huge thank you to the waiter who, seeing I was dabbing at my blouse where I'd managed to drop oily octopus juices, wordlessly brought me a can of stain remover spray and a clothes brush. Wonderful sense of service!
Some people might find it a little too casual, but I recommend it for the atmosphere and the service, and reasonable prices for Capri.

“Fresh fish in mid-September !”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

- Very nice service
- We took fresh fish for 2 persons, they gave us an entire bream with potatoes and olives, and they serve in front of us the fillets
- Then we took perfect pastas with eggplant
- At dessert, we try the lemon tart, the presentation was very beautiful BUT I felt a little bit disappointed (the tart was quite dried)
