La Capannina Capri
The delicious traditional cuisine of Capri and the convivial atmosphere created by Antonio and Aurelia De Angelis and their children Francesco and Renata: ingredients which guarantee Restaurant La Capannina's lasting success.
Situated a mere 100 meters from the famous Piazzetta of Capri, since 1931 La Capannina has been the preferred dining venue of the rich and famous, attracting a glamorous clientele including Jackie and Aristotele Onassis, Marcello Mastroianni, Christian De Sica, Julia Roberts, Dustin Hoffman, Zucchero Fornaciari, Uma Thurman, Silvester Stallone, Michael Douglas and Katherine Zeta Jones, all of whose photos adorn both the menus and the dining room walls.
La Capannina's menu features a tempting selection of local specialities, including linguine with redfish, ravioli alla caprese, seafood scialatelli, prawn and chickpea puree, stuffed calamari, and fresh fish, which varies according to the catch of the day. The ravioli alla caprese are prepared by Giada De Laurentiis in La Capannina's kitchen and presented on her Food Network in the United States.
The choice of wines is an impressive one, the restaurant's wine list containing some 400 Italian and International labels, also available for purchase in the nearby delicatessan, La Capannina Più Gourmet. The shop, opened over twenty years ago, stocks a vast selection of wines, spirits and gastronomic specialities, and luxury gift items for both the home and boat. La Capannina Più offers a worldwide shipping service and, on request, delivers purchases to clients' hotels and boats.
Located right next to the restaurant, La Capannina Bar is open from 19.30 onwards, and provides the ideal evening venue where to enjoy a glass of wine or one of the bar's excellent cocktails, accompanied by tasty sweet and savoury nibbles, all still being served long after midnight. The interiors of the bar recreate the atmosphere of a traditional Villa of Capri, with walls adorned with period prints and floors paved in majolica and terracotta. Both restaurant and bar have an open air area for those wishing to smoke.
Restaurant La Capannina is situated just a few steps away from the Piazzetta, on Via Le Botteghe, one of the most attractive little lanes in the historic center of Capri.
