Fodor's Expert Review La Canzone del Mare
Although it's not primarily a restaurant, a luncheon dominated by fresh seafood and vegetables in the covered pavilion of this legendary bathing lido of the Marina Piccola is Capri at its most picture-perfect. With two seawater pools, a rocky beach, and I Faraglioni in the distance, it was the erstwhile haunt of Gracie Fields, Emilio Pucci, Noël Coward, and any number of 1950s and '60s glitterati. There are five suites available, too, in case a day at the beach-club is not enough. Boats also depart from here for the more exclusive Da Luigi, the lido-restaurant at the base of I Fariglioni.
