La Capannina Review

For decades one of Capri's most celebrity-haunted restaurants, La Capannina is near the busy social hub of the Piazzetta, and the discreet flower-decked covered veranda is ideal for dining by candlelight—or you can join the regulars in the outdoor covered area. Specialties, aside from an authentic Capri wine with the house label, are ravioli capresi and linguine con lo scorfano (flat spaghetti with scorpion fish), squid stuffed with caciotta cheese and marjoram, and an exquisite "Pezzogna" (sea bream cooked whole in a copper casserole, topped with a layer of potatoes). The wine cellar is open for perusal, and their nearby gourmet store ships worldwide. The small late-night bar across the side alleyway is under the same ownership.

    La Capannina Review

    Very ordinary. The food was fine but if you are looking for a scene, or a little ambiance, avoid this place. Very expensive and just OK. It receives so much attention in all the travel sites and books and I don't know why. I recognize it is difficult to find a REAL restaurant on this Island as it is under siege with tourists, but I've since scoped out 2 others that are better.

    I am a 40 something from Toronto, working in marketing, and enjoy good restaurants, wine, etc...
