“Busy, but you can see why”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We chose the restaurant based on TA reviews and the fact it looked reasonably priced for Capri. We turned up at around 8.15 and the restaurant was heaving so we put our name down and were told we could come back in an hour. When we we came back there was a queue out of the door. We were lucky enough to be given the table by the window, although you can't see much when it's dark. The food was very good, I had veal, he had mussels and the staff were very helpful in guiding us with our orders. The pizzas looked good too. The food and wine were very reasonably priced. The jugs of house red wine could only be ordered in a small size which was fine because we just ordered another when the first ran out. The second "half" jug they brought was much larger which was fine by us. Good food, cheap wine and a bustling authentic atmosphere, I would recommend it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Not so expensive as many of the other restaurants in the area.
Very tasy food and the best service. Nothing to complain about.
We ate there more then once during our visit.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“Delicious Food at Reasonable Prices in Expensive Capri”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Our local guide in Capri suggested this casual dining restaurant in a little side lane quite close to the main shopping area. The view from the single window added to the charm of the place. The food was delicious and authentic Italian. The pizza was delicious as was the pasta. We had the house wine with it which was not bad. Some of our group were vegetarian ( not vegan). The restaurant came up with equally delicious vegetarian alternatives. The staff were patient enough to understand our pidgin Italian mixed with a lot of English and give us what we wanted. At the end, the bill was also a pleasant surprise

“Great Casual Restaurant with Authentic Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This local restaurant tucked away on a side street was recommended to us by out hotel. We asked for a low key, casual dining experience with authentic Italian cuisine and this place checked all those boxes! The staff were friendly and the service was great along with delicious food! Next time I would definitely try and reserve the table for two right by the window at sunset as the glimpses we got were spectacular! Also the cost was relatively cheap considering the other options in Capri. If you fancy having a night off from the fancy side of the Island, this is a great option in a central location. We ended up eating here for lunch and dinner.
