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.

We were staying just down the road from here and I contacted them having seen the reviews for my boyfriends birthday. The chef himself contacted me back to confirm all details and helped me make it special for him. The staff were beyond lovely, friendly and knowledgable, they couldn’t help more. The food was superb, so much so we returned the next night, it was also a ridiculously good price!
The also even accommodated us to move our dessert order to another table so my boyfriend could watch the football with the locals. Perfect birthday for him!

My wife and I are staying in Conca dei Marini for 6 nights and we’ve come here every day, for either lunch or dinner, and always were very happy with our meals, not to mention a free no cost shuttle service! Being of Italian descent we are particular on what we eat, and this restaurant does not disappoint, authentic, quality meals, not to mention they serve pizzas! Best gnocchi in Italy that we’ve every had! Excellent selection of menu items, many home made, and everything reasonably priced. Top is off with a free limoncello at end of your dinner! Very courteous and friendly staff, that give you full attention but allow you uninterrupted time to eat your meal. Don’t rush, as they won’t rush you! Family run business with Chef and family from the area and very particular with the quality of the food. Salvatore, the father and patriarch, sincerely cares about everything, as does Josey and Antonio, and the chef, and spend some time sharing stories, very interesting family. We will definitely be back last two days and will definitely recommend to our friends back in USA!

We stayed in Capo di Marini for a week and ate here 4 times. We returned because the food was excellent. With eight in our group we sampled the entire range of the menu and there are was never a complaint. The seafood was superb. The food was complemented by an extensive list of local wines. Antonio and Chef Fiore were attentive and friendly making our visits a pleasure. This restaurant was a highlight of our visit to the Amalfi Coast.
