Description: Thanks to the passion, perseverence and the complete dedication from Salvatore Criscuolo, better known as "O Capo" and his lovely unforgotten wife Teresa, the Polisportiva, renamed in "Le Bonta del Capo" is today one of the most popular and appreciated restaurants on the Amalfi Coast. Located in a privileged position, the location appears to be disputed between the intensiv blue of the sea and the brightness of the sky, nestled between lush harmonies of terraced olive groves, vineyards and lemontrees. On the terrace of Donna Teresa, where you have during the sunset the unique feeling to be untited with the horizon, where a deep red paint the nearby island of "Li Galli", directly in front of the "Faraglioni" of the flirtatious Capri, here you will find you enjoying the delicious regional cuisine accompanied by the finest wines of the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento. The timeless pizza contribute to give you a greater sense of being welcome and of the hospitality of Naples. As a reward for your appearance, you will be certainly attracted by the nearby "Punta Vreca", a breathtaking viewpoint in form of a ship overtopped with the tower "Capo del Conca", a natural ancient harbour, a defense post with vice-regal watchtower, designed to curb the invasions of the pirates from the seaside. Surely you do not pass unnoticed a quiet harmonious way in the nearby of the restaurant, which is called "Cinque Essence", meaning for San Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, who named this way during his walks from the monastery Santa Rosa. The monastery is a holy place and the birthplace of the famous and popular puff pastry cake Santarosa. Surrounded by olive, carob, pomegranate, grapes and lemon the bishop was inspired to call it "Cinque Essence". For those who love the sport, there is above the restaurant the possibility to use one of the two multi-purpose courts with artifical turf for football, tennis or volleyball. Also with a playground and entertainment games for the smaller of us. We are waiting for you, here in Conca dei Marini, where we have "In each window the sun and out each window the sea.

Daniele di Palma with with Wine Tour Amalfi Coast arranged a most special afternoon with Chef Fiore for us. Chef guided us through a tour of his personal vineyard and lemon garden. He then walked with us to his restaurant and while sampling the grapes we had just picked reviewed some of the history of the area. It was truly like a dream! Once there he conducted a Limoncello making class for us! It was so much fun and gave us confidence to try it at home! This was all followed by a divine meal with an artful presentation, wonderful wine and a view that can't be matched anywhere else. Chef Fiore is warm, humorous and has a fantastic presence. He truly cares about his customers, the restaurant and his community. I highly recommend you put this on your list of "must do's" when you are in the Amalfi area. You will enjoy the beautiful drive to Conca dei Marini. It was certainly our favorite day on the coast. Many thanks to Chef Fiore and Daniele for making this an unforgettable experience for us!

Pulled into Le Bonta del Capo for dinner on return from Naples. Took a little finding, but this added to the charm of the restaurant.
Food was great, as was the service, and the place was 'hopping'. Luckily we had made reservations!.
The views from the table were stunning, and we watched the sun go down as we ate
Would definitely go back!!

We have been there several times while we were staying at the village. Actually we did not cook at all because the food was very nice and very reasonably priced. I can recommend salt baked seabass. Staff is great and atmosphere is lovely.

My partner and I spent 5 unforgettable days in Conca dei Marini, during 3 of which we had the pleasure of dining at Le Bonta del Capo. It's hard not to love a place with such warm, welcoming staff, amazing food, and an absolutely gorgeous view of the sea. Their chef is a poet in the kitchen, and our absolute favourite dishes were their pizza Quattro Formaggi and 7 Odors Spaghetti.
It was my partner's birthday during our first dinner here, and he said it's the best birthday he's had so far :) we are eternally grateful for the wonderful experience that we had here and are very much looking forward to going back.
So if you want a taste of the best that the Amalfi can offer, come to Le Bonta del Capo.
