One of the best, if not the best place to eat a late dinner in Capri. The butler knew everything there was to know about each course and wine. Took his recommendation on the ravioli, and it was the best we’ve ever tasted!!

The best of all, service by the host. Food was decently priced and quality was average. Fried Calamari was the best of over 10 dishes. Nice setting.

We ate here for lunch when visiting Capri, for the day. It was a lovely quiet spot out of the hustle of Capri. We had been warned that the island was expensive but we didn’t find this place too bad really. We just had a...More
