We ate here two nights in a row. Had pasta dishes on both occasions - lasagne, spaghetti vongole, penne genovese and spaghetti carbonara. All were excellent. Their house wines are also very nice. The staff are very nice and the views out the window are spectacular.

My girlfriend and I both had linguine: hers with mussels and garlic, mine with octopus and cherry tomatoes, and both were lovely. We also has bruschetta and I had baba rum, which were good, though not as special as the pasta. Overall, I'd recommend bringing your own food to Capri since the place is expensive, but if you'll eat there, and especially if you feel like pasta with seafood, this restaurant will do the trick.

Can't say enough about this charming little restaurant. We were recommended by our hotel to a pizzeria down the street but ended up stumbling onto this restaurant. Thank god!! Delicious true brick oven pizza!! The pasta was fresh! The Chicken Cacciatore was to die for. They even gave us complimentary Limoncello they made personally. The restaurant is inexpensive especially to Capri standards. I don't put many reviews up but this restaurant definitely deserves my strongest recommendations!!

First 'meh' food experience in Italy. The 2 lbs. bowl of gnoochi, slathered in a ketchup-like sauce, had the texture of raw dough. Heavy. The salad greens (not really greens rather iceberg lettuce) rusted, oxidized...was corn a listed ingredient? Not sure as there was a strange absence of kernels, 2 or 3 random. I was craving soup, and for 9 euro (!?) got a decent bowl, though broth likely composed from a cube. The service was fine, they left us alone. Were hidden fees, wish I knew before I left my 'good American tip'
