“Never again”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

We were very disappointed and would not recommend this restaurant. The only good thing is the nice view. But for that you pay a very high price and receive very little and no special food. I had a primi with tortellini a la chef for EUR 14,00 and received 5-6 small tortellinis with very little sauce. For that price I really had expected more. The mixed salad was extremely little. The price is horrendous. You don´t only pay for coperto but at the end you pay 15% for the service additional. So what a bad surprise.

“best pasta ever!”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

You just have to try their home made pasta with zucchini, prawns and fresh basil! I have been to many places in Italy, including Rome, Naples, Palermo, Milan... but I have to say this was the best pasta I have ever had.

“AVOID!!!”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

The only nice thing about this place is the views it offers. Otherwise the food is poor (some of it - not fresh!) and the service is terrible. On top of the very expensive prices there is a charge of 15% that accompanies your bill as well as the cover charge. We have been warned to check our bills while in Italy but fortunately have not had this type of experiences during our week in Italy - with the exception of this restaurant - extra items were added which we did not order. Having questioned the 15% charge as well as cover charge on the bill (usually one would expect one of the two) - we have been told by the rude waiter that it was some kind of special tax imposed by Capri (which is not true). We also wondered whether it was legal that they only had a sentence in tiny small print indicating the 15% service charge on one last page of the menu (page with pizzas which one would not typically order in this type of place). Hence the entire concept of this place is to trick tourists and not worry whether they would come back. Avoid!

“Avoid !”
Reviewed 15 July 2012

This place offers nice views but this is really all there is.
It is outrageously expensive and food and service are terrible.

Apart from the expensive menu, they also charge a far higher than normal cover charge-coperto and to skin you totally you also have to pay an extra service charge of 15% on top.

Quality of food is less than the level you get in fast food restaurants; pasta was not fresh, neither was the fish. We started with a caprese salad which looked like it had been sitting in the sun for hours, no taste at all and even warm...
My wife had a lemon cake to finish, it clearly was not fresh but coming out of the freezer.

Despite the attractive interior it is also not very clean. Toilets may be very posh and design, they are also dirty...

Finally they also tend to make trouble if you want to pay with credit card, probably because this costs them money. Either there seems to be a problem with your card or their device is out of order, all reasons are welcome to get only cash out of you.

Capri may be the biggest tourist trap of Italy, this place is definitely the biggest tourist trap of Capri. Avoid !
