Al Grottino - Capri

Go to the top

Restaurant Al Grottino enjoys a superb position right in the heart of the historic center of Capri, a mere 30 meters from the famous Piazzetta. The restaurant occupies part of an ancient 15th century edifice, characterised by the charming arches and cross vaulted ceilings typical of Capri's older buildings.

A well established favourite for connoisseurs of good food and wine, Al Grottino is invariably mentioned in all of the most important international annual gastronomic guides. For over 80 years, the Arbace family has been serving excellent local and Neapolitan cuisine and, in particular, the dishes for which Capri has become famous.
Simply cooked, same-day-fresh ingredients, result in fabulous Mediterranean food, appreciated by a vast and varied clientèle, many of whom can be seen in the photo gallery displayed on the restaurant's walls.
During the warm summer months, it's particularly pleasant to relax over a meal in Il Grottino's air conditioned dining room.

Arbace family is the owner also of Pulalli restaurant, on the clocktower in the famous Piazzetta di Capri
