Romantic Seaside Restaurants

Not sure where to book for a romantic candlelit dinner on Capri with a view of the Mediterranean?

If you're visiting Capri with your sweetheart and are looking for an intimate spot to celebrate a special occasion, anniversary, birthday, or simply your love by candlelight, here are some of the most romantic tables on the island!

The Most Romantic Restaurants on Capri

If you would like to be right on the water's edge, then you'll love Marina Grande.

By day, Capri's port town is bustling with ferries arriving and departing with loads of daytrippers, but each evening, quiet descends and the town returns to its fishing village roots where you can enjoy a romantic dinner just steps from the water.

Lo Zodiaco

This restaurant is next to the marina, and is open all day, though the atmosphere is especially romantic at night. If you book ahead of time, you can snag a table right at the water's edge, just a few meters from the colorful fishing boats bobbing on the waves which by day take tourists inside the Blue Grotto.

The menu concentrates on fish and seafood, of course, and includes dishes featuring raw fish. Try one of the pasta dishes with fish and vegetables, or their excellent pizza.

Ristorante Lo Zodiaco

  • Open: 1 April - 31 October, 11:30 a.m. to midnight
  • Address: Piazzetta Ferraro, 2, along the waterfront next to the marina
  • Telephone: +39 081 837 63 32

During the months of July and August, the Bagni di Tiberio restaurant in the Palazzo a Mare area is also open. You can take their boat service there from Marina Grande, which is a perfectly romantic way to begin an unforgettably romantic evening!

If you'd like a table overlooking the Faraglioni sea stacks, you'll have to book on the south shore of the island. Here are some of our favorite restaurants overlooking these dramatic rock formations off the shore of Capri:

Torre Saracena

This is the restaurant inside the Torre Saracena beach club and the terrace looks out over the Marina Piccola bay. From June to mid-September, it's open in the evening for dinner, as well. It's hard to picture a more romantic setting, especially if you happen to eat on one of those magical summer evenings when the full moon sets the sea sparkling and lights the Faraglioni sea stacks in a silver glow.

The cuisine focuses on fish and seafood, with live shellfish to be selected directly from the acquarium. The dishes are traditional island specialties, prepared simply and deliciously.

Torre Saracena

  • Open: for lunch from 1 April to 31 October, for dinner from mid-June to the beginning of September. Closed in case of inclement weather. We recommend calling first to confirm dinner reservations.
  • Address: Via Marina Piccola, at the bottom of Via Krupp
  • Telephone: +39 081 8370646

Da Gioia

This intimate restaurant is located on the Marina Piccola beach, and in the summer tables are set up right on the pier.

The atmosphere is informal but romantic and the menu focuses on fresh fish dishes.

Da Gioia

  • Open: from mid-May to mid-October for lunch, and from June to September for dinner. Call first to confirm dinner reservations.
  • Address: Marina Piccola, take the steps down from the bus stop
  • Telephone: +39 081 8377702

During the months of July and August, the Luigi ai Faraglioni restaurant often organizes special evenings with boat transfers from Marina Piccola. A dinner by moonlight in the shadow of the Faraglioni is an evening you'll never forget...
