This is our second time in Italy, though our first time in Southern Italy. And while I did slightly dread the number of tourists we would be surrounded by (sadly, we are here during August and here during the August 15 holiday, and throngs of both tourists and locals was going to be virtually guaranteed) I was still hoping for some of the same type of beautiful magic we discovered on our first trip to Italy.

Throngs aside, we DID find the magic. After checking into our hotel in Anacapri and then strolling the streets and riding the chair lift (which you absolutely cannot miss while you're here!), we checked out the trusty tripadvisor.com for the best reviewed restaurants in the area. L'Angolo Del Gusto was so well reviewed we thought it almost too good to be true. So we strolled down into the small square where it was located and had a seat.

First, the small square itself is a magical place. While the surrounding streets are lit with the modern lights of tourist trap-style stores, the main square is simply a couple of lovely restaurants flanking a beautiful old Church. And in the square were many local children playing futbol back and forth and laughing with Italian glee. It felt like a scene from 'Cinema Paradiso', the cinematic classic (which I feel is essential viewing--aside from Felini films--for anyone traveling to Italy) which, to me, is one of the most romantic and beautiful films of all time.

The restaurant itself is no frills. Simple and to the point in appearance. A few tables and chairs out front with a perfect view of the square and its Italian glory, and a few inside. But the sense of family comes forth immediately. It is literally a mom and pop and two sons running the place (and of course their sweet little dog Prince). They all take turns going to all the tables to take orders and check in. Wihtout hesitation they also bring out a couple of chef selected mini-appetizers (which seem to change for every table) and glasses of Prosecco on the house. Nice touch. But sometimes you wonder when that sort of thing happens if that's just a case of diversion from what will ultimately be mediocre meals. NOT the case.

The food, service, care...EVERYTHING was fantastic. The review could not have been more accurate. And while the food was great, it was truly a mixture of the kindness and care of an obviously close-knit and loving family (they were also so nice to allow me to practice my Italian) with a magical and truly Italian setting that made this feel like a transportation into a period of the past where time stands still and love is eternal.

Early dinner. Ordered fried fish, eggplant parmigiana, spaghetti vongole and pasta frutta di mare. Delicious. Everything on the other tables looked very good as well. Pity we had to leave the island. Dedicated family.

This restaurant has the number one spot on Tripadvisor and rightfully so !
It is located in front of a church in a beautiful piazza in Anacapri. We were welcomed very warmly by the family … the restaurant is a family business and it shows … the atmosphere of 'la familia' is very present and authentic !
The food was delicious : we chose between some antipasti, primi and secondi … great mussels (excellent in taste), pasta in a crust of parmesan was delicious, chicken and fish were also fantastic ! A very fine wine list and we ended with some espresso and limoncello on the house.
We will definitely go back here !!!

The food at this place is very nice, and very reaonably priced. This restaurant is situated next to the church, and may be a little difficult to find. The owner has a nice parrot, called Pato, which is really a hit with the kids.

Visted with my husband on our holiday in Anacapri. They offer prosecco and a little plate to start. This is free and such a delicious and welcoming touch. This is a family run restaurant and they know exactly what they are doing. The staff strike the perfect balance between professionalism and making you feel at home. Most importantly the food is very special and I am craving it two days later!! We had ravioli and the zucchini flowers to start, both cooked to perfection. We also had fish of the day and the lemon chicken. I would highly recommend both. It is a bit pricey but that's what you pay for such amazing food and service. I can't wait to return to this fantastic restaurant.
