We were visiting Capri for the day from Sorrento. Even though it was only mid-March the streets became crowded by 11 am, especially close to Piazza Umberto. So we decided to find a quiet restaurant to settle down for an hour or two and have some fine Italian hospitality. We found La Campannina along one of the alleyways leading off... More

This restaurant is all about the... More

We ate here twice during our stay on the island. The menu is sligthly different than normal, which can be a relief when eating out every night on holiday. All dished ordered were cooked well and presented similarly. All assisted with great house wine. Staff were good with recommendations.

I think this was my favorite restaurant in Capri as it had great food and was casual. This is not the restaurant you go to be seen but rather to have a great meal. I am vegetarian and the menu had plenty of choices for me and for my friends who like their meat. Good prices, good food, efficient service....worth... More

This is the restaurant that many famous people have visited, as documented by the photographs throughout the restaurant. This restaurant lives up to this "hype". The food was wonderful. I had a seafood dish with calamari, octopus, and shrimp that was outstanding. My wife and a shellfish pasta dish that was also fantastic. The wine list was extensive with a... More

I ordered a caprese chicken and butter asparagus. The later were very good, one of the best asparagus I've ever had, soft and buttery. The chicken was good but a bit plain. All in all a good experience and decent food. Would return.

There are some restaurants that make the food experience memorable for life. One of those restaurants is La Capannina. From the second that you enter the family owned restaurant, the warmth of the owners, Antonio and Aurelia DeAngelis make you feel like you are at home. Add the intriguing courses of their award winning chef, paired with a top wine... More

My husband and I returned to our favorite restaurant on Capri. The hosts, Antonio and Aurelia, are warm and welcoming. The food is authentic Caprese and always fresh. My dish is the ravioli which are like stuffed gnocchi in a most delicious red sauce. This dish is always superb and consistently delicious. We also tried a typical Caprese dish totani... More

Our host was fantastic. She was very attentive and friendly. The food we ordered was good but lacked of its own "identity". From the restaurant decor to the food presentation you feel stuck in the past. I'm sure it was fine dining 20 years ago but needs a little revamp. Overall I would go back for their food.
