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.

“A lovely place to eat”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We loved the friendly staff who were incredibly hard working (the place was always busy but they always managed to squeeze us in without a reservation) and greeted us like old friends! In a week we went probably six times, as it was within walking distance from our hotel, and we wanted to try different things on their menu. The food was reasonably priced and the pizza was excellent.
The view daytime and dusk is breathtaking - very blue sky meets very blue sea! They had good desserts (the local lemon pudding is wonderful, as were their icecreams!) and limoncello to finish the meal was a lovely touch. There is a singer performing on Wednesdays and Sundays, who got the diners singing along! On our last night, when they learned we were there on honeymoon, they brought out our dessert with a firework on top and other diners all congratulated us! It was very kind and special.
Thank you for a memorable time!

“Best restaurant in Amalfi Coast!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Great view, friendly staff, and very good, gourmet food for very decent prices. I have eaten here at least 4 times.

What you get here is great customer experience at an authentic italian restaurant with food made by people who know how to cook!!

Get a swordfish with a Melanzane alla Parmigiana (an Amalfi coast dish) side and you will be blown away. The pasta with clams (seafood is good in the Amalfi coast) is also great, as is pretty much everything they serve. NOTE that the advertised price of ~36 euro on Trip Advisor INCLUDES 3 meals with desert, as the most expensive plate is I believe around 12-13 euro. If you want something a bit more budget, get their pizza (the Cappriciosa is a favorite), very tasty!

Bianco della Casa is also very good (house white wine) and cheap!! Great homemade orange juice. Also every meal comes with a complementary limoncello.

Also you get a free lift to and from the hotel. I feel that this is not only the best restaurant in Conca dei marini, but also the best one in the Amalfi Coast (and in my personal experience, in the whole of Italy).

Thank you Antonio and the great staff for a memorable experience! :) So spread the word, and go to Bonta del Capo! If you will be in the Amalfi coast, definitely pass by Conca dei Marini. Once there, you have to check out Bonta del Capo!

Many thanks from "Mr. Bones" and friends. ;)

“Amazing restaurant”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Le Bonta del Capo is seriously the best restaurant on the Amalfi Coast! Located in Conca Dei Mairini, a charming little town, you will get the best pastas and pizza with an incredible seaview... You won't forget this amazing experience soon!
Antonio, the owner, makes you feel at home. We were in Amalfi for 5 days, and we went eating there 4 nights. Highly recommended.

“Good food for comparable low Amalfi coast prices”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Our family enjoyed dinner and had all the recommended dishes. During dinner we enjoyed the breathtaking view at amalfi coast and were lucky with lots of fireworks in the area. Make sure you keep some space in your stomach for the great lemon cake. The only thing you might not like is the entertainment during dinner. They have a person playing all kind of songs during the whole dinner. For us it was nice and funny to watch but might not be everyones taste.

“Excellent service and great local food”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We were staying in Conca dei Marini in mid-July 2014 and we ate in La Bontà most nights during our trip. The food and the friendly service kept us coming back! The menu is very reasonably priced and the pizzas are absolutely superb - well worth visiting if you're on the Amalfi coast.
