This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel as the best on the Island. It has a wall of glass overlooking the sea toward Marina Piccola and at night the scene is quite pretty with the lights from other hotels. During the day I am sure the view would be stunning. The service was very professional but to my thinking the water menu was just a little bit over the top. Tables are large but too close together, we could hear the conversations of diners on either side of our table, and none were loud Americans. We ordered a delicious Scampi Risotto, 32 Euros and Pasta with Zucchini flowers and bottarga, 26 Euros, for starters and then a Rabbit dish with a tomato sauce 32 Euros and Tuna Puttanesca 28 Euros as mains. Apart from the risotto all the other dishes had sauces that dominated th otherwise excellent main ingredient, so we were disappointed with our meals. The wine list was fairly priced we think, we ordered an excellent Planeta Chardonnay from Sicily for 50 Euros. Apart from the very professional service from our young lady server, we were ignored by the Maitre D' and the chef who visited other tables - maybe because we were not guests at the Hotel and perhaps because a Michelin Reviewer was dining the same night. Excellent bread and olive oil to start, an Amuse Bouche of frozen pineapple puree with octopus slices and petit fours to finish were accomplished. We did not order desserts, as we are not big eaters. Overall we were disappointed with the food, so disappointed with the restaurant. We are going to Mamma in a few days which also has a Michelin Star, so it will be interesting to compare the two.

This was our last night on Capri so we decided to go a bit more high end. We both ordered the 6 course tasting menu. Everything was outstanding and tasted fresh and delicious. Wine list is extensive and great. Each dish was like a little work of art on a plate! Upon arrival the ladies are given the water menu (this was a first for me)! It was fun to pick out a sparkling water from other countries. There was so many courses that we left very satisfied and full. They even give you a little bag of candies for the walk back to your hotel. Other reviewers have said how expensive it is to dine here for dinner. We have eaten at restaurants in La Jolla, CA that have similar food and service and paid a lot more than Monzu. It is absolutely worth it to splurge here for a fancy dinner!! Can't wait to return.

Had a wonderful experience at this restaurant on our last night in Capri.
Staff were welcoming, professional and very knowledgable about food & wine.
Despite having a water menu, the restaurant is not too expensive!
Had a really great tasting menu with a few surprise courses thrown in.
Valentino selected an excellent wine.
Definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon.

A recommendation by our hotel. This was a great place. Housed in a historic building in a most fabulous place on via Tragara.
The service was impeccable and the food divine.
Extremely creative food with a wonderful view.
Every aspect of our dining experience was special! A must if you visit Capri!
