Description: The "la capannina" restaurant since 1931 is situated just 100 meters from the famous capri square and has been a "must" stop for many steady aficionados throughout the years, as well as celebrities and elite. Among these "la capannina" has hosted jackie and aristotele onassis, marcello mastroianni, christian de sica, julia roberts, dustin hoffman, zucchero fornaciari, uma thurman, sylvester stallone, kirk and michael douglas, katherine zeta jones, michael kors, jerry springer, danny de vito, anne hathaway, dino and aurelio de laurentiis and many, many more.the convivial family atmosphere created by owners antonio and aurelia de angelis and their son francesco and daughter renata make up the ingredients which guarantee the "capannina's" continuing success."La capannina's" menu features much of the traditional and delicious cuisine of this beautiful island. There is a tempting selection of local specialities including spaghetti with scorpion fish sauce, homemade scialatielli pasta with seafood, boiled prawns on bed of chickpea puree, stuffed calamari and fresh fish.

Close to the Piazzetta this restaurant is a Capri institution and its walls are lined with celebrity photographs taken over many years. Owner Antonio De Angelis is in the dining area every night carefully watching over every detail with his son Francesco and his wife Aurelia is the one taking reservations and preparing the bill.
If you value touches like linen napkins and old world service that comes from direct family involvement this is a place that will not disappoint. The food is delicious and simply prepared to highlight its flavors. My favorite dishes: paccheri shue' shue', a Capri pasta specialty. Octopus, sautee of clams and mussels, and grilled pezzogna-a delicious local fish similar to red snapper.
The value-to-price relationship is excellent and the overall experience is so satisfying that we ate here several times during our stay in Capri.

Very local feel. We had veal, two different ways, as well as a fava bean and escarole side dish that should not be missed! The service was great and we could not have improved on the experience.

Across from the restaurant is an Enoteca owned by the same family. Great selections of Compania wines and treats. Worth visiting.

This is a great restaurant, serving delicious food with a cozy atmophere and an excelent service.
In the entrance, a hidden gem in the charm streets of Caprio, you promptly notice that the restaurant usually receives some world class artists and celebrities. And it happens for a reason: an excelent food and a very dedicated abd helpfull service.
I had the veal with lemmon sauce and a bottle of local wine, after a nice caprese salad. You can not escape the desert menu as well!
