After a strenuous morning hike up to Villa Jovis, we were famished by the time we got to Arco Naturale. We'd held off eating until we got to Le Grotelle and it was still quite crowded with the late lunch crowd. Still managed to get a great seat perched in front of the magnificent view - Le Grotelle has a... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. We have made a point of stopping for lunch or dinner every time we have visited Capri. The spot is magical and the food is excellent. Our waiter, Michael was a gem and we would highly recommend this family run restaurant located in a magical setting.

Got to sit outside for an incredible lunch. Highly recommend the spaghetti with clams! Great service, and prices were reasonable for Capri, especially given the view! Great place to relax in between hiking!

We hiked to the Arco Naturale and this restaurant is close by. The outdoor terrace overlooks the cliffs and coastline of Capri. Excellent food and service. The staff speaks fluent English. We had a prosciutto and melon appetizer which was plenty to split between two people. For main courses, the grilled prawn and arugula salad and the Bucatini pasta ai... More

We had a delicious lunch at Le Grottelle on the isle of Capri on a beautiful, sunny day at the end of September. It was well worth the hike up to the restaurant to sit outside and take in the incredible views from our restaurant. It was also very nice to be away from all the tourist crowds in Capri.... More

I can't rate this little family owned restaurant highly enough. Giovanni, our waiter, Numerous Uno. This the first time in Italy that we have had a waiter who is so good humoured and has such a passion for his profession. The food was superb. Honest to goodness, home cooking by Nonna and her daughter. The views, well they speak for... More

This is a traditional Capri restaurant, on the way to Villa Jovis, so you have to climb a little to reach it. But it i worthwhile as they offer excellent food, very good service (rare today and even rarer in Capri), it is a middle range restaurant, no pretensions, but you get very good value.

Walked past this restaurant on our way to Villa Jovis. Stopped for an excellent coffee in an amazing setting. We weren't ready to eat but the seating in the cave was atmospheric.

Lovely and delicious spot with one of the best views in Capri. We basically ordered most of the menu - salads, mixed veggies, swordfish, chicken, pasta, rabbit, etc - and it was uniformly excellent. The staff was also friendly and responsive. This place could so, so, so easily have become a tourist trap and instead it's a great restaurant with... More
