Great location . Unfortunately, the restaurant staff were very rude bordering on being hostile. This was my only bad experience in Capri and in Italy generally. So, I guess it's just one bad apple out of a manificent orchard. A better option would be to...More

The was a reasonable choice for a lunch amidst the crowded afternoon rush of people. The wait staff are very interactive - code word for aggressive to have you join them.

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.
