This little bar is not just a place to stop for a quick bite but a mini experience in Capri. From the moment you walk in, Carlo, Gian Paola and co will make you feel you are at home. Why? They'd be cracking jokes in whatever the language you speak, they'd be treating you as well as your mom does... More

Stopped by this cute cafe for some cappuccinos before our tour of Capri and Carlo was soooooo nice (not to mention very handsome!) We had to stop by again before leaving the island and had the best cappuccinos! Didn't try any food but it looked amazing.

Landed in Capri for a day trip. Carlo spotted us looking confused on where to start so he offered advice on how to spend our day in Capri. He gave us step by step instructions on how and where to go. He did this all not expecting any money or business, he just did it to be kind. After our... More

It was one of the first restaurants we saw after the ferry. Took a chance. The meal we wanted was a sea food "salad". The picture looked great. I asked the owner was the meal the same. It came out better. Amazing fresh seafood. Only a very small amount of lettuce. Piled on fresh chilled sea food.

We wanted a quick place to eat when we got off the ferry in Capri. It is just steps away. This place has a great view, super friendly staff (most family members) and delicious caprese, paninis, etc. The tomatoes from their garden. Super clean bathrooms too.

Understand one thing-The capri water front is full of bars and tourist traps that want to hustle tourists in and hustle them out. Not Bar Il Gabbiano. This should be your first and last place to visit on the island. Why? Whether you have lunch, coffee, cold drink, or want a cooler of snacks and drinks for a boat trip... More

Whilst waiting for the Laser Capri Ferry back to Sorrento, took advantage of the little port side bar and had an ice cold beer followed by raisin gelato. Ideal, no frills bar and restaurant, quick service and good prices considering it was Capri, nice end to a tiring and hot day

I've order the pistachio ice cream on a cone and it didn't disappoint. The flavour and portion was massive. The cappuccino was at its quality which was strong. What made this place interesting were the staff. They were very enthusiastic and eccentric, great staff.

Stopped off here during a day trip to Capri and had a lunch and a few drinks. Service was very good and my beers were served in a frozen glass, a godsend on a very warm day. Had a nice pannini Caprese on multigrain bread which was very tasty and my partner had the cold cuts and cheese board which... More
