The Aurora Restaurant and Pizzeria is one of Capri's oldest restaurants. For more than a century the D'Alessios have continued to promote the culinary traditions of the island, creating what has been refered to as a kind of "gastronomical museum" lovingly curated by 3 successive generations of the family, the last of which is comprised of Gennaro and Lucia, helped by their children Mia and Raffaele.
The best of Mediterranean cuisine is served in the large dining room with splendid veranda overlooking the historical Fuorlovado street. Chef Franco Aversa adds a pinch of creative flair to the traditional Neapolitan and Caprese dishes, a sprinkle of originality which places the Aurora among the most exclusive restaurants on the island.
The Aurora boasts a wine cellar with over 300 labels from Tuscany, Piedmont, Campania, Puglia, and Sicily and a selection of excellent French and Californian wines - another of the reasons why the Aurora has become a must on any gastronomic itinerary and a popular haunt of celebraties visiting the island.
The family restaurant Aurora was the first to bring carefully chosen quality wines to Capri, and has maintained their dedication for many years. The constant search for the best Italian wines and their ever-expanding cellar has led Aurora to open Vino, an enoteca in the heart of Capri.
