Le Grottelle

13 Via Arco Naturale capri

(39) 081-837-5719

The terrace of Le Grottelle, suspended high above a gorgeous, sparkling bay near the Arco Naturale, is one of the most blissful settings on Capri. Diners are seated under yellow umbrellas, and the Caprese dishes (pasta, seafood), prepared by Mama Rosa, are flavorful, homemade and delicious. Don’t even bother with the menu; just ask for what’s fresh that day and return to gazing at the incredible view. My husband and I had a wonderful lunch at Le Grottelle, but the concierge at our hotel told us that the most romantic time to go is for dinner, especially on a warm summer night when the moon transforms the sea into silvery molasses. Le Grottelle is a twenty-to-thirty-minute walk from town, but you’ll be happy to work up an appetite for this totally authentic Capri must—the couple who dined next to us said that they had come back for lunch three times during their five-day visit—and be sure to save room for dessert, like the fluffy lemon cake.
