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

I came off the boat and whilst waiting to go to the blue grotto I came for a coffee and I'm not going to lie, the loo. I sat looking out over the marina and the waiters were attentive and added to my first glimpse of Capri Definitely recommend

This was our 1st stop on Capri. Carlo (I think he is the son of the owner) advised us that we could buy bus tickets from the bar and also advised us on the best route on the island, all in a very funny way. He also advised us where we could eat well in Capri. At the end of... More

After a morning of sightseeing we stopped here on the recommendation of our tour leader who suggested that they have the best mozzarella ever. As a lover of mozzarella he was totally right! Order the caprese salad and follow up with just a plate of mozzarella, I did. I still dream of it. :) The wait staff were absolutely charming... More

Our tour group guide stopped us all here in the shade by the piers. We got a discount for stopping here from our tour guide but we would have stopped here anyway. They did have free wifi but dropped few times. This was abreast place to stop and grab bite to eat and drinks. Also the service was outstanding and... More

Enjoyed a few "Iced beers" after being encouraged in by a very welcoming waiter. We only wanted a drink and was not put under any pressure to order food. We were made to feel welcome for the whole stay and were never rushed. Lovely location right by the harbour.
