Capri: Our Top Five Restaurants

10.June 2016

Da Paulino
It was under these lemon trees, the branches of which formed a canopy so thick that even the most persistent of rains could barely make its way through, that Paolino opened his simple little restaurant. Today, Paolino's legendary lemon garden is still there. The restaurant has remained a family business, managed by Lino, Paolino's son, and his nieces Michela e Arianna. Only the very finest of local products are used to create the dishes, be it the freshest of fish or highly prized meats. The same attention has been given to the selection of wines and to da Arianna's famous buffet of desserts dominated by a magnificent display of wild berries, seasonal fruit and copious quantities of whipped cream.

Il Riccio
In a Mediterranean atmosphere, sitting at blue wooden tables, you can have lunch and dinner almost every hour of the day. The restaurant "IL RICCIO", awarded with one star in the 2013 Michelin Guide, is a place of signs and symbols, of women with hair made of sponge and sea mermaids created by artist Paul Sandulli.
The open kitchen is decorated with majolica tiles from Vietri. And the fish counter, like a Pompeian painting, that not even the Latin poet Ennio would have imagined, full of octopuses and cuttlefish, of bream and sea urchins, lobsters and seafood.

Tradition, courtesy, innovation - these are the ingredients that the Caccioppoli family mixed to create a years long meeting point for the repeat tourists of the island and a nice surprise for the new visitors. The restaurant offers its selceted guests a great choice of dishes to taste on the large terrace overlooking the Gulf of Naples, prepared and cooked following tasty and simple Mediterranean tradition, mixed with inventions of modern Italian cuisine.

La Canzone del Mare
Bathing establishment, restaurant, and mooring stage for yachts, La Canzone del Mare is situated in one of the world’s most beautiful places: the enchanting bay of Marina Piccola. During the summer, from midday to late at night, guests have the opportunity to taste the delicious creations of the Chef, accompanied by the red and white wines of the Campania region or ‘Wine with white peaches’: a drink traditionally served on the island of Capri.

Buonocore Gelateria
Considered by many as Capri's number one gelateria, Buonocore Gelateria is a must! You can't help but stop here when you smell the homemade gelato waffle cones... Look forward to flavors like strawberries & cream, toasted almond, as well as lemon-flavored tarts, cakes, biscotti, and macaroons.
