It was quite a walk to get to the restaurant, but it was well worth it. We sat at the edge of the patio, with gorgeous views. The food was delicious, tasted like it had been cooked by an Italian grandmother!

La Fontelina is a little piece of paradise in the paradise of Capri. A little hard to get to, but worth every stair step down and every stair step back up. Do not walk there unless you are in excellent shape, take a boat instead. Everything here is exceptional, the service, the food and cocktails, swimming and lounging. I recommend... More

We had a great lunch at this beach club on Capri! We arrived by boat and the restaurant's launch picked us up to take us to the dock. It was a very busy Sunday in September with beautiful weather. Lots of people were sunning on the rocks-great people watching and seeing the boats come and go. We had a great... More

Visited the restaurant with friends during our stay in Capri. When my friend did the booking she was given an option of a cabana or an umbrella and she chose a cabana including lunch. When we arrived there were two "sort-of-cabana" style spots already taken and the rest were umbrellas. At reception the staff had no idea of our booking... More

La Fontelian is the rebound beach club in Capri. The walk down to this spot through a wonderful pine forrest provides one of the most beautiful views in the world. Having gone there for over 25 years, we were always overwhelmed by the beauty and uniqueness of the spot. The lunch is excellent and the ride back to Marina Piccolo... More

Yes, the view is fantastic, the food, average and overpriced. By coincidence every reasonably priced bottle of wine was sold out - go figure. Service was rather unpleasant, perhaps after season fatigue, but I would expect a bit more at that price

We loved La Fontelina. We would have gone back again, accept clouds rolled in. The facilities were nice, clean and well kept up. The mats/beds on the rocks were comfortable. Service while sunning was good. Our lunch was fantastic. Highly recommended.

What a fabulous place...yes, it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. Making a lunch reservation is a must. We ate first and sun-bathed after. Had really great Italian Rosé, a capresé salad (on Capri!), and the Spaghetti alla vongole, which was just fantastic. The service was good, the staff was friendly. When we got to the beach... More

Spent a lazy, beautiful afternoon on the rocks lying on a soft mattress provided by the beach club. What a place. Dolce Vita defined. If you have the time on Capri, spend some time here and stay for lunch because that's the cherry on top of a perfect perfect day .

Seriously. One of the best places I've ever been. Fantastic location, excellent food, impeccable service. Very expensive but worth every cent.
