As they stroll through the pretty historic center of Anacapri, along the lane which winds its way past the town's tiny boutiques, artists' studios and pavement cafes, visitors soon come across the elegant façade of the Blu Capri Relais: the 5 star hotel home to the Capricci gourmet restaurant.
Restaurant Capricci's sophisticated interiors are the result of a stylish combination of classical Mediterranean and contemporary designer furnishings. In warm weather lunch is served al fresco on the Limonaia terrace, in the shade of a characteristic pergola: a charming informal environment in which to enjoy an exciting selection of salads and wonderfully light dishes featuring the island's fish and seafood. In the evenings, meals are served in the elegant indoor dining room. A tasting menu is available for those eager to experience the chef's personal interpretation of the best of Italian cuisine.
Luca Paffetti is the man responsible for Capricci's delicious and beautifully presented Mediterranean cuisine. Paffetti's signature dishes include his "Spicy couscous with tiger prawns, chickpea puree, and cherry tomato tartare", "Lemon Carnaroli rice with raw sea bass strips" and "Grilled squid, shrimp tartare, pistachio pesto and red chicory". The quality of the cuisine is guaranteed by the meticulous selection of the finest, locally sourced ingredients. Pasta and bread are made in-house as are Capricci's irresistible desserts, including the delectable lavender and cinnamon flavored ice-creams.
Capricci is the restaurant of the Blu Capri Relais, a stylish 5 star hotel in the heart of Anacapri. The restaurant looks out onto the picturesque pedestrian lane which winds its way through the historic center. The elegant eatery's central location allows diners to easily combine a meal at Capricci with a visit to Anacapri's Axel Munthe Museum-House and the Church of San Michele, or even with a ride by chairlift to the summit of Monte Solaro. The restaurant is easy to reach from just about anywhere on the island and the center of Capri, and the famous Piazzetta, is only a 10 minute taxi ride away.
