Fodor's Expert Review La Capannina

$$$ Capri Southern Italian Fodor's Choice

Near the busy piazzetta and long one of Capri's most celebrity-haunted restaurants, La Capannina has a discreet flower-decked veranda that's ideal for dining by candlelight. Specialties change daily depending on the season, but the menu always includes ravioli capresi, linguine con lo scorfano (with scorpion fish), and an exquisite "Pezzogna" (sea bream cooked whole and topped with a layer of potatoes). Family-run, both grandfather and grandson strive to make this a memorable experience. They also own the nearby gourmet store and small lunch spot and late-night bar across the side alleyway.
