Expert review of Lo Zodiaco

Enjoy bobbing boats, lapping waves, and fresh seafood on Capri's Marina Grande.

A few years ago there was nothing on the port; pretty much all the action was up on the Piazzetta. But there's been a bit of a sea change (sorry) and now there are a couple of places worth checking out, including Lo Zodiaco.

Food and drink: 

The pizza here is fabulous: even if you don't want pizza, order up their focaccia - a light pizza base topped with fresh tomatoes and basil (no sauce). Delicious. For bigger appetites there are plenty of pasta, gnocchi, risotto dishes and fresh fish.

Ambience: 

This is where the boat operators eat and the setting is lovely; slap bang on the port, you can smell the salt of the sea if there's a bit of a breeze (or the smell of diesel if a charter has just anchored). 

Service: 

On my last visit the service couldn't have been friendlier.

Location: 

Hang a left when you get off the ferry and keep walking. 

Price advice: 

Unsurprisingly, thanks to its location, it's pricier than some less obvious or more out-of-the-way restaurants, but the food is good, the welcome is friendly and, if you choose well, you shouldn't wince too much when the bill arrives. Go easy – pastas are around the 12-15 euros mark – and you'll come out smiling, and even if you're up for a full blown harbour experience, with mains (secondi) starting at around 24-28 euros, a full meal for two will cost around 100-120 euros.
