Ristorante Pizzeria Aurora

A seven minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

Located in the center of the town. The decor is very stylish and has a very cool atmosphere. Excellent food, beautifully presented and delicious. The service is incredible, very friendly and attentive. Their pizzas are super thin and light. Very tasty as well. Their special pizza (Aurora - eggplant mozzarella and tomato) is fantastic. Fish (sea bass, swordfish) is so fresh and incredibly good. I highly recommend their Carpaccio, which is amazing as well. Fettuccine with clams and zucchini is absolutely remarkable. Well appointed wine menu and decently priced (by Capri standards). Their desserts are wonderful and well presented, no matter what you choose. It may be hard to get a table without a dinner reservation, due to their popularity. You should book at least a week in advance. It is a bit pricey, but a definite must for anyone that is visiting Capri.

Villa Verde

A five minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

It is a big restaurant, with a nice warm atmosphere. Extensive menu and great wine list too. The sommelier's advice is helpful and informative. Terrific waiters and service add to the experience. They speak good English and enjoy a small chat. For starters, I recommend braciola with arugula salad and slices of Parmesan cheese. Fresh burrata cheese, with tiny asparagus spears. Other highlights include salted-crusted sea bass and amberjack (a local fish). Fish and seafood is on ice display as you walk in. Pizza is very good. Delicious truffle pasta. Every pasta dish is available with gluten-free pasta. It can be a bit crowded at times, best to book in advance. A little off the beaten path. However, well worth the effort to find it. The prices are a bit higher than other places on the island. However, with the high quality fresh food and the fact you are in Capri, explains the prices.

 

Isidoro Restaurant Capri

A ten minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

There are some wonderful sounding salads on the menu. They have pizza with many different toppings to go with it. They also have great pasta and seafood. Pasta is cooked to perfection. Go for spaghetti with mussels, which is divine. Risotto with shrimp is expertly prepared and enormous. Grilled swordfish is fresh as can be, and delightful. The quality and quantity of the food is very good. The waiters are nice, helpful and welcoming. The prices are average for Capri. Grab one of the tables on the rooftop terrace if you can.

Ristorante Donna Rachele

A six minute walk from Gardens of Augustus

Ristorante Donna Rachele is charming, and well decorated. The menu is not very big, but it has a nice range. Everything is fresh, homemade and authentic. Each dish is simply cooked well, (Red snapper, home made pasta, pizza, etc) and tastes terrific while using as many local ingredients as possible. They also have two tables available for couples, on the balcony. Very romantic. The service is excellent. Staff is warm, and inviting. Speak pretty good English. Prices are on a par with the other restaurants in town.

La Cisterna

A seven minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

La Cisterna is tucked away, just a bit off the beaten tourist path. It is a cozy little place (tables are quite close), with a typical Italian atmosphere. There are many family photos covering the walls, but the picture of the Salvatore (owner) sunbathing on the rocks adorning the bottles of house wine is a fan favorite. The menu has a terrific selection of pizzas, pasta, fish amongst other wonderful things. Waiters are pleasant and professional. Friendly owner makes you feel you are among friends. A wonderful experience and pricing is reasonable (by Capri standards).

Michel'angelo

A six minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

Michel'angelo is a very warm and inviting restaurant, situated close to the center of town. The owner, Gianluca, and his wife Holly, are warm and friendly who will greet you as you walk in. The waitstaff are extremely attentive, and service is efficient. Menu options are mostly centered on seafood. The seafood risotto is plentiful and colorful. Calamari salad is tasty and well prepared. The mussels and clams are very fresh, and compliment your other dishes and wine perfectly. Excellent homemade pasta, perfect taste and texture. You can see the chef make the pasta from the other side of the glass. Swordfish is extremely fresh, and the flavors are brilliant. Mozzarella bar has a nice selection of fresh cheeses, along with the freshest tomato slices. The food and wine are fantastic, and reasonably priced for Capri. Be sure to make a reservation.

Buonocore Gelateria

A six minute walk from Gardens of Augustus.

Apart from the home made gelato, cones are freshly made as you place your order. They are still warm when you eat the gelato. You can actually smell the waffle cones being made from a couple blocks away. They have a wonderful selection of flavors to choose from. Pistachio and stracciatella are both superb. Other fan favorites nocciola, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. They also make delicious cookies that come in assorted flavors (pistachio, hazelnut, lemon) that should not be missed. Terrific place to have an after dinner dessert. There's always a line of people, but it moves quickly. The prices are very reasonable too.
