Picturesque restaurant with simple and tasty Italian food, nice wine list which needs to be updated according to the current vintages.

We planned to hike it, but had a lot of children with us, so we came by boat instead, and we were very glad we did, as it clearly would have been a tough hike. We had thought about walking out of there back to...More

Spent the day at La Fontelina with another couple, and the location and accommodations couldn't have been better. Definitely the "best of the best" when it comes to prime views and sunbathing. Food was also good, but the value isn't the best in Capri. However,...More

It was a bit hard to get to, lots of steps, but that's part of the experience. Location can't be beat, next to the ocean. My seafood pasta was a bit pricey but delicious! The maitre d' was super nice, we chatted with him for...More

As a vegan, the grilled vegetable buffet felt like a dream come true. Paired with the beautiful views, yummy drinks, ocean breeze, and the charm of Capri - it was a five-star experience.

La Fontelina is one of the most beautifully sited places in the World to spend a glorious day. If you are lucky enough to be here once in your life to have the memory, that is enough! The food & the service are irrelevant. Although...More

Amazing views after a big hike down the hill from town. Take the boat from the port. Very expensive for mediocre food. Service was disjointed.

This a dream spot to hop among the rocks and terraces full of bikinis. Amazing food and view. Dip into the sea and tidal pools from the ladders. You will never forget your day here.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'll be going in August are there lockers to rent or they aren't needed? I'm a solo traveler, so I want to keep my things safe. Also the reservation is for the beach or the restaurant? Can I make a reservation at 2 pm for lunch and show up at 11 for the beach? After lunch can I go back to my beach chair or will I lose it once I leave to go to the restaurant?

It's all about reservations. Just tell them what you want and the staff will handle it. I wouldn't stress, the whole idea is to relax and the Fontelina staff will handle everything.
We will be coming to Capri for a few hours in the end of June from positano on a boat. We will not have enough time to sit for lunch but was wondering if we are still able to come by and enjoy the beautiful scenery, order some drinks and take a dip in the ocean without having a reservation.

I don't think that possible because of the limited amount of time you have and La Fontelina is not equipped for sip and dip excursions. Changing facilities and swimming areas are for guests that reserve space.
Will be visiting Capri end of Sept. Do I need to book La Fontelina in advance? How do you do it? Is there a certain amount you need to spend at lunch? Can you walk from Hotel Punta Tragara? What are top 2 restaurants in Capri that I can't mess (nice, not snooty)?
