Il Solitario - AnacapriGo to the top
In Anacapri there is a local eatery which has been a favorite since opening in 1960 as just a humble osteria featuring local wine, cheese and cured meats, and gossip.
Since then, the Trattoria Il Solitario has become a favorite spot to sample the most authentic and traditional cooking on Capri in their quiet internal garden shaded by an immense ivy canopy and in a warm and welcoming island atmosphere.
From the simple plates of salami and cheese first served, to the stuffed peppers, ravioli, and eggplant parmesan, featured today: Il Solitario's dishes have become more filling but no less traditional over the years, keeping an eye on the authenticity and freshness of the ingredients. Not convinced? Well, let's just say that the daily fish special is only on the menu when Il Solitario finds fresh enough fish at that morning's fishermen's market.
Among the trattoria's guests, Pope Benedict XVI, visiting Capri while still Cardinal and, more recently, the Italian.American mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, have both enjoyed Il Solitario's welcoming atmosphere and comforting food.
Combining historic recipes from Anacapri and the traditional flavors of the island, Il Solitario's hostess Carmen is passionate about keeping the long traditional of Capri's local cuisine alive and making Il Solitario a restaurant landmark in Capri: a place with excellent food served at a fair price.
Opening times: 11.00 am - 01.00 am
Closure days: Tuesday
Open 7 days a week. Close from November to Easter.

Il Solitario: LocationBack to the top
Wandering Anacapri's old town, the highest point on the island of Capri, is pure pleasure. The San Michele Church with its magnificent majolica floor, the historic Aragonese tower, now the Casa Rossa Museum, the main church, and the numerous tiny workshops, artisan boutiques, and stores lining the lanes are all steps from the tiny flowering alleyway which marks the entrance to the Trattoria Il Solitario: it doesn't get any more convenient than this!
