Very nice lemon pasta and mozzarella salad, homemade food! The main dish was served before we finished our starter. Too fast service, but very nice people, very italian!!! We felt very welcome, and the homemade wine was good! We bought an extra bottle!

A very enjoyable lunch with a great atmosphere. A very different feel to most of the restaurants in Capri. It was good to get of the sun and sit somewhere cool.

Cheap ingredients, not fresh. Grubby space with horrible music. People try to sell you watches while you are eating. And on top of that they charge you a cover and service. Oddly for a pizzeria the pasta was better.
