Fodor's Expert Review La Fontelina

$$$ Capri Southern Italian

Given its position right on the water's edge, seafood is almost de rigueur here, but also expect fabulous fresh vegetable creations like polpette di melanzane (eggplant fritters), and then dip into the vegetable buffet. La Fontelina also functions as a lido, with steps and ladders into fathoms-deep blue water, and this location—accessible on foot from Punta Tragara or by boat from Marina Piccola (10 minutes; €25 up to four passengers)—makes it a good place to spend a delightfully comatose day. Only lunch is served, and reservations are recommended during high season.
