Expert review of É Divino

A cool, cosy and colourful Capri hangout, serving great food.

This is a welcome addition to the, frankly, almost non-existent well-priced eateries in Capri - and it's rather styish too: tiled floor, retro wallpaper, a dresser full of antique decanters and glasses.  

Food and drink: 

It's perfect for an aperitif or lunchtime snack as well as a full meal. For nibbles, to go with a glass of wine, perhaps, there are lots of freshly made bruschette options with delicious combos, such as aubegine/mozzarella/mushroom or gorgonzola and caramelised pear, rising to crostini (a bigger slice with, perhaps smoked salmon/capers or smoked provola/speck/mushroom. For hungrier folk I thoroughly recommend the tagliata di manzo (slice of beef) with green pepper and rosemary and an oven-baked potato. It is divine.

Ambience: 

The five little café style tables, set with rattan chairs, at the front of the restaurant are great if you fancy a quieter meal, but if you step past the desk and turn left (before the kitchen) you'll wander into a veritable TARDIS of a place; think 'antique shop buzzing with folk sitting around on mismatching chairs and sofas surrounded by an extraordinary collection of knick-knacks' and you'll have some idea. Grab a table, order a bottle and a few bruschette and you're set…

Service: 

Friendly, efficient and relaxed (and it needs to be, as this place gets really busy as the night goes on). 

Location: 

Coming from the Piazzetta, head up Via Le Botteghe and take a right. 

Price advice: 

It's extremely reasonable: freshly made bruschette are 2 euros (incredible, when you think that would get you half a slice of day-old pizza at some of the more touristy places), crostini are 5 euros, and the tagliata is 14 euros (the same meal costs twice that down on the port). Dishes change regularly, but this is good food at great prices.

Tables to book: 

There are no reservations, but don't leave it too late; this place gets really busy.
