Restaurants in Capri

Strolling down the Via Vittorio Emanuele extending south from Capri’s central “piazzetta,” the air fills with the sweet smell of baking waffle cones and bowls coming from the open-arch front window of Gelateria Buonocore.

Just west of Capri’s central “piazzetta,” Da Giorgio restaurant operates out of the hotel of the same name, serving traditional island fare like linguine with redfish sauce, scialatielli with prawns, and beef fillet in a red wine sauce.

Just as Odysseus navigated the Faraglioni rocks off the south coast of Capri, so does the free shuttle boat from Marina Piccola run by this renowned, jet-set restaurant and beach club.

In an all-but-hidden alleyway in Anacapri, on the quieter, north side of the island, the Trattoria Il Solitario takes up an outdoor garden in front of a 14th-century bell tower of the Church of Santa Sofia.

Named after the three iconic rock outcrops off Capri’s south coast, this restaurant just south of the central piazzetta holds fast to tradition, not just in the simply decorated, white interior, but in the menu as well.
