Description: Thanks to the passion, perseverence and the complete dedication from Salvatore Criscuolo, better known as "O Capo" and his lovely unforgotten wife Teresa, the Polisportiva, renamed in "Le Bonta del Capo" is today one of the most popular and appreciated restaurants on the Amalfi Coast. Located in a privileged position, the location appears to be disputed between the intensiv blue of the sea and the brightness of the sky, nestled between lush harmonies of terraced olive groves, vineyards and lemontrees. On the terrace of Donna Teresa, where you have during the sunset the unique feeling to be untited with the horizon, where a deep red paint the nearby island of "Li Galli", directly in front of the "Faraglioni" of the flirtatious Capri, here you will find you enjoying the delicious regional cuisine accompanied by the finest wines of the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento. The timeless pizza contribute to give you a greater sense of being welcome and of the hospitality of Naples. As a reward for your appearance, you will be certainly attracted by the nearby "Punta Vreca", a breathtaking viewpoint in form of a ship overtopped with the tower "Capo del Conca", a natural ancient harbour, a defense post with vice-regal watchtower, designed to curb the invasions of the pirates from the seaside. Surely you do not pass unnoticed a quiet harmonious way in the nearby of the restaurant, which is called "Cinque Essence", meaning for San Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, who named this way during his walks from the monastery Santa Rosa. The monastery is a holy place and the birthplace of the famous and popular puff pastry cake Santarosa. Surrounded by olive, carob, pomegranate, grapes and lemon the bishop was inspired to call it "Cinque Essence". For those who love the sport, there is above the restaurant the possibility to use one of the two multi-purpose courts with artifical turf for football, tennis or volleyball. Also with a playground and entertainment games for the smaller of us. We are waiting for you, here in Conca dei Marini, where we have "In each window the sun and out each window the sea.

“Simply brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here on first night in village, and was so good ate for following three nights before our departure home.
This is how I like my food - local ingredients simply prepared with resulting fantastic tastes. Throw in the view from the terrace (we were seated at same table #22 for 3 nights which is one of many with the views), very drinkable house wine (White was slightly sparkling and very refreshing), and you have an idyllic evening out.
Don't expect formal, stiff staff, but do expect smiles and touches of humour. Fiore and Antonio - keep it up!

“Franca and Koen 'Thanks for everything'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

Approx. 100 meter above sealevel restaurant Le Bonte Del Capo did surprise us more than usual.
A large terras in a very nice atmosphere and very friendly service gives us a feeling to come home. Although we normally never have dinner several times at the same restaurant, this restaurant was an exception and we had dinner for two weeks at this very nice place.
Remarkable high quality food like fresh fish, pasta's and specialities of the house, hospitality and very friendly staff where the ingredients to feel even more than home. Also the limoncello course and limoncellodinner we recommend.
All staff thanks for everything, we will never forget you. You made our holiday very special.

“The Best restaurant experience ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We spent 2 weeks on the Amalfi coast including 1 week in Conca Dei Marini, which, by the way is fabulous! But this was the best foodie experience of our trip! We travelled as a family of 4 so value was important. This restaurant had it all. Fantastic food, oh my god try the lemon ravioli & or the fish baked in salt!!! Try everything! We ate here most nights! That's where the excellent value kicked in! Fantastic food at fantastic value. Last but not least, the staff! They were so nice, helpful & attentive. They even dropped us to Amalfi one day when we could not get a taxi!! Our kids did not want to leave & want to return next year! They loved it!!! We loved it! Thank you for a fantastic experience! Congratulations on a fantastic restaurant! We will be back.!

“Just great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Really nice place with excellent food and amazing views. Feels like being guests of the family. Reasonable priced and free shuttle service. We have visited there now twice with my husband (lunch and dinner) and we will most likely visit there many times during our nex week in Conca dei Marini(where many places are over priced average turist food)
