da Paolino - Capri

Moonlit evenings have an even more bewitching power at the De Martino brothers' Restaurant, magical moments witnessed by a host of celebrities who have contributed to the success of this enchanting place, "Under Paolino's lemon trees".

"Do you know the country where lemons flourish? Down-there, down-there, I'd like to go with you my love!!!". Paolino De Martino did'nt really think that Goethe had ever been a visitor on the island of Capri, nor did he think that the writer had admired his gardens dashed with the yellow light transmitted by the rows of lemon trees with their huge fruits, but that phrase had a special appeal for him.

He had heard it from a literary friend of his, one of those people who, as far as he was concerned, read a lot but thought very little. He was convinced that his lemon grove which provided shelter from the wind and rain even for the rabbits, and produced lemons so abundantly - and how many! - was the most beautiful in the whole of Capri.
"Under that sky of lemons as big as stars I'd like to go with you, my love..." he repeated.

It was really something else 30 years ago, reminises Paolino, when one used to be invigorated by a simple sea breeze, and the moon with its strong rays appeared like a white sun thrown into the sky by who knows who and for what reason.
At sunset, when silence returned to the island, many an islander chose to meet in Paolino's garden, not far from Palazzo a Mare, in front of Villa Bismark, and a few meters from the playing field where the children from Marina Grande kicked their first football, along that narrow road which abruptly transforms into a flight of steps precipitating towards the sea of Tiberio.
Many a fleeting meeting and secret pact of friendship were made under that sky of lemons, huge lemons with such thick pulp that they could easily be sliced into salads, and so began the adventure of Paolino.

And like all stories where hard work and sacrifice are rewarded, with that son called Michelino (known as Lino) at the end they all arrived: Niarcos, arriving on the island with his fabulous "Atlanta", Leopoldo Pirelli, president of Mercedes Benz, Conte Augusta, Giorgio Falk, Cesare Romiti, Gallucci, Matarrese, Morabito the president of Isreimer, Luca di Montezemolo and Edwige Fenech, Leonardo Mondadori, Dianne Furstenberg, Tirelli, Ferragamo, Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers, John Beluschi, George Hamilton, Lino Banfi, Lucio Dalla, Luciano De Crescenzo, Nanny Loy, Lina Wertmuller ... celebrities whose autographs are all meticulously archived and treasured by Lino since 1978: how many tales still to be told under those lemon trees where, "I'd like to take you, sheltered from the wind and rain"?

"Great restaurant. Food was different from the one of other restaurants, offering some buffet style antipasta and dessert. A magical experience!"

1 traveller agrees

"The lemon trees are Da Paolino's greatest attraction, for sure, but beside the fantastic atmosphere the food is very tasty. Finish your meal with a limoncello shot, it's delicious!"
