At the end of a beautifully panoramic road, just ten minutes away from the center of Anacapri, and perched right on the sea's edge, lies the bathing establishment and restaurant, Lido del Faro. The D'Esposito family built the Lido amidst the rocks of Capri's jagged coastline in 1971, taking great care so as to not tarnish in any way the immense natural beauty of the place.
The restaurant Lido del Faro, which boasts a splendid terrace overlooking the sea surrounding the lighthouse of Punta Carena, is renowned for its traditional cuisine and, in particular, its seafood specialities.
Lido del Faro offers a number of unique dishes, from raw fish and seafood to grilled octopus with crunchy vegetables and an white melon-infused sauce. The pasta dishes are informed by tradition and include classics from the island of Capri like seafood risotto, vermicelli pasta tossed with zucchini and local cheese, and timeless ravioli capresi.
They also highlight their creative side with a number of updated twists on Mediterranean mainstays like whole grain linguine with squid, sea urchines, and zucchini purée and mezzi paccheri pasta with puréed green peppers and octopus ragù. Be sure to try the seared tuna with carpaccio of island tomatoes and grated lemon or our crunchy shrimp paired with mojito-inspired sauce.
No meal at the restaurant is complete without a sweet final touch, and classic torta caprese with gelato is a perennial crowd-pleaser, as are other more contemporary creations like a frozen "zeppola di San Giuseppe" mousse inspired by the classic Neapolitan dessert.
Open for lunch'' from from midday to sunset throughout the tourist season, the Lido is also open for dinner on the weekends in summertime.
Open 7 days a week. Close from November to Easter
Almost directly beneath Capri's lighthouse, in one of the island's most attractive bays, Restaurant Lido del Faro is situated in the immediate vicinity of the beach club with which it shares its name, and just a ten minute bus ride from the center of Anacapri.
