We visited three times in a week. That will tell you how good this famous and long established restaurant is! Excellent traditional menu with some surprisesy, good winelist and wonderful attention from the staff. And, by Capri standards, not too expensive. Give it a try and enjoy!

This is a well-established family run restaurant which has been a mainstay of Capri for many years. Whilst it is slightly old-fashioned it is the none the worse for that, and the service is spot on and very friendly. The food is of a good standard and the choice and specials could pose a problem for the indecisive. The coniglio (rabbit) was delicious and there are many local pastas to choose from. Choose carefully and this is now one of the more moderately priced restaurants on a very expensive island. Highly recommended and you will need to book early to get a table in the conservatory.

We walked in for early lunch here very much attracted by the quaint charming welcoming feel of the restaurant. They let us pick our table, and also let us wander around looking at all the photos from celebrities that visited the restaurant in the past.

The owner was friendly super welcoming and told us of his pride and feeling privileged for being able to operate for all these years on the beautiful island of Capri. He is around serving on tables and truly taking joy at hosting. We observed how nice that was and the special touch that gave to the feeling in the restaurant.

The suggestions for food and wine were honest anf excellent. We ordered the lobster linguini, which was very very good (although not the best I had in my life but very tasty).

I could have easily gone back but we wanted to try other places during our short stay in Capri. If I go back to Capri, it would be the first place I would go back to.

Went with a group. Service was very attentive. Loved seeing the pictures of all the people who have been there. The Caprese Salad and seabass were very fresh and tasty. But save room for dessert as the profiteroles with chantilly cream and dark chocolate sauce was very enjoyable.
