Expert review of É Divino
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.
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.
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…
Friendly, efficient and relaxed (and it needs to be, as this place gets really busy as the night goes on).
Coming from the Piazzetta, head up Via Le Botteghe and take a right.
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.
There are no reservations, but don't leave it too late; this place gets really busy.
