Situated at the foot of the Marina Grande, this place could easily be mistaken for a tourist trap. Far from it. The food is terrific and very reasonably priced. But the service puts it over the top. Carlo, the owner's son, is a rock star. His personality is charming and larger than life, all at the same time. You will be treated like an old friend, even if it is your first visit. We have been going here since 2001. For us, every stop in Capri begins with a visit to Il Gabbiano.

This restaurant is the local hotspot and not too expensive with seating on the waterside. Easy access from any hotel. The hosts were not the most pleasant servers though.

Carlo and his family were so excellent! We came across this cafe as we arrived in Capri. Carlo was so kind and arranged a private tour of the island. After some amazing drinks and Bruschetta, Carlo packed us a cooler with wine and snacks for the boat tour. The food and wine he packed was so amazing! We had the most memorable day all thanks to Carlo. After our boat adventure Carlo mapped out a wonderful hike of the island! Carlo and his family is one of a kind and honestly some of the kindest people I have met in Italy! :) Thanks Carlo! - Rachael, Jared, Lars & Marissa

We were about to pay for the blue grotto tour boat coming directly off the the ferry and randomly walked into Carlo at the restaurant and he made us sit down and made us some drinks. He then told us all about Capri and we instantly made friends. He got his friend to give us a private boat tour of the entire island, inuding taking us to all the grottos, for a very inexpensive price and was so much better than anything we could have experienced on the blue grotto tour. He made us lunch to take with us on the boat and gave us some bottles of wine as well. We love Carlo and his family they are amazing! I will definitely go back to say hello if I ever come back to Capri :)
