Everything about this place was wonderful. So romantic, cozy, and the staff was charming. The food and desserts were great. Italy has the best wait staff ever!

Used TA to investigate the evenings meal offerings and decided on La Capannina. From the narrow street the restaurant looked busy with inviting atmosphere. Sadly we were escorted through this bustling area to a overspill area at the rear occupied by a table of four and a single patron who it transpired to be a journalist food critic! Staff were pleasant enough and the food ok but sadly not the experience we had been looking for.

We enjoyed our meal at La Capannina. We had Raviloi Caprese at several restaurants and this restaurants was the BEST! We also thought the eggplant parmigiana was excellent! The 4 is for the atmosphere which is all I can say is very pink and old school - not very appealing compared to many of the other places we dined. The desserts were a bit of a disapppointment compared to the quality of the entrees. BUT we would return because the entrees were that good. Go for a great meal but not necessarily a romantic evening.

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.
