Mi alzo tutti i giorni alle 6.30 per andare al mercato a scegliere i prodotti migliori e cucinarli. Proprio come farebbe mammà!

Mammà - Capri

Go to the top

A terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples, the turquoise tones of the sea and sky, and a Michelin-starred cuisine: welcome to Mammà, restaurant of chefs Gennaro Esposito and Salvatore La Ragione, newly recognized by Michelin.

The restaurant opened its doors in 2013 on the site of the historic Ristorante da Gemma, in the heart of the center of Capri town. Already by 2015, Mammà received its first Michelin star.

Chef Gennaro Esposito's culinary philosophy is based on dishes made with soul, just like mom used to make, featuring ingredients delivered fresh each day. There are no cold storage or freezers in this kitchen; mornings begin with a trip to the market to carefully select the ingredients for that morning's menu, along with freshly made bread.

The staff is especially attentive, but informal and welcoming, and across from the restaurant, guests can visit the wine cellar and the lounge for a pre-meal cocktail or post-meal espresso.

We suggest you take a look at the menù and listen to your server's presentation carefully, but follow the advice of head waiter Antonio for your selection. As it says on the chalkboard of the house rules: No one knows better than we do the best dishes of the day...trust us!

Like eating your meal in the middle of a night club

We'd been badly let down by another restaurant who upon arrival ignored us and left us standing at the door for 10 mins. Mamma came to our rescue following my husband's patience running out, and we... more »

Cucina gourmet e panorama da sogno: gli ingredienti per una serata perfetta...

Se siete in cerca di un posto romantico, panoramico e dove si mangi divinamente bene, l'indirizzo giusto è Mammà. La sala si trova su una grande terrazza coperta e riparata dal vento da un grande vetrata che dà l'impressione quasi di essere all'aperto. Nelle calde serate estive si può anche cenare sui tavolini messi all'aperto. Lo sguardo va dal Monte Solaro al Campanile della Piazzetta con il mare davanti. Vi consiglio di arrivare non troppo tardi per godervi le luci del tramonto.

Ma non fatevi distrarre troppo dal panorama: da Mammà si viene soprattutto per la cucina stellata dello chef Salvatore La Ragione, stella Michelin nel 2015 e pupillo di Gennaro Esposito che detta la linea del ristorante. Leggete pure il menù, ma poi lasciatevi consigliare e suggerire un percorso guidato tra i sapori "di mammà". Non ve ne pentirete!
