Expert review of Capricci
You can't miss it; it's the one with the funky, bright coloured chairs outside. Capricci (or 'caprices') is the restaurant of the Relais BluCapri (one of Anacapri's five-star hotels) but there's nothing whimsical about the quality of the food. It's top-notch, whether you go for a light lunch or the more serious dinner option. Chef Luca Paffett and his 'creative love' (as he describes his cooking) will knock your capricious socks off.
You could just nip in for a glass of prosecco, but where's the fun in that? A glance at the menu might change your mind; who could resist octopus and potato millefeuille or handmade baby macaroni with aubergine, cherry tomatoes and salted ricotta (especially when you know that all the pasta is made in-house). The ravioli served here has a reputation all of its own.
Currently the Capricci is never as busy as it should be, but that is sure to change so you best get a table while you still can.
A five-minute walk from Piazza Vittoria along Via G. Orlandi, it's on your left.
For food of this quality (you'll have passed plastic-menued outfits charging more than you'll pay for a meal here), it's a steal. Example? hand-made macaroni with aubergine, tomatoes and salted ricotta cheese costs 12 euros, linguine with mussels 14 euros, and the likes of lemon carnaroli (best risotto rice) with raw seabass strips for 16 euros.
