“Delicious Lunch with a Beautiful View”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We stopped here while waiting for our ferry and the meal was wonderful. The view is breathtaking and the food was quite good. We split a few appetizers and they were each very delicious, the absolute best was the eggplant parmesan was the best thing I ate while in Italy. It was fresh and just absolutely delicious. The fish was all very good and the caprese salad was also delicious. The prices were very reasonable compared to majority of Capri.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

While we were waiting for our tour, we stopped at Lo Smeraldo for a quick breakfast bite. The pastries were wonderful and we loved the service so we came back for lunch. Our service was terrific once again, the local fish dishes and the pasta were excellent. Fernando was a great host and we will definitely eat here again.

“Great Lunch on the Dock”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Walking in the Marina Grande in Capri, we found this beautiful restaurant tucked away behind the bus ticket offices. The terrace overlooks the sea, it is quiet and beautiful. The Maître d' welcomed us, suggested the crab that was fresh. Wine, beer, crab linguine, and scenery to look out on. The service was exceptional, friendly.

“Fresh seafood and amazing view!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Ottimo! We had low expectations since the port is full of bad food, but Lo Smeraldo was a wonderful surprise. We had shrimps caught that day which we were able to sample before ordering! The service was very very good and the view of Mt Vesuvius stunning (from our table).

“Lunch by the sea”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

We now understand why this restaurant is rated so high. The food and service is beyond reproach. We enjoyed the cheese ravioli and today's special fish. Not sure the type of fish but it was small species and 3 different types. This is something I would not normally try without tartar sauce and hush puppies but I enjoyed every bite. The setting is wonderful on the patio overlooking the ocean. You can not beat the service anywhere. Our understanding they are only open for lunch. We highly recommend this restaurant. This restaurant was recommend by the concierge at our hotel (Grand Hotel Qvisisana). The people and food are wonderful.
