Il Solitario - Anacapri

Go to the top

With a dining room as welcoming as a home, a beautiful ivy-shaded garden in Anacapri's old town, and a menu inspired by Capri's traditional dishes, Trattoria Il Solitario is the perfect spot for those looking for simple, authentically traditional island cuisine.

Cooking Capri Classics since 1960

Everyone in Anacapri knows the Il Solitario restaurant. When it opened in 1960, locals would gather here over a glass of wine with friends, perhaps paired with a plate of rustic cheeses and charcuterie, to play cards and gossip with neighbors.
Soon, the garden tables began to groan under the weight of the dishes piled high with local specialties coming out of the kitchen: ravioli, stuffed peppers, eggplant parmesan. And thus, the Ristorante Il Solitario was founded.
Today the friendly hostess Carmen, inspired by the island's customary courtesy, warmth, and love of good food, maintains the long tradition of Il Solitario, welcoming visitors to her informal trattoria for a leisurely meal in a relaxed environment for a fair price.

A number of illustrious guests have enjoyed meals in Il Solitario's shady garden over the years, including Pope Benedict XVI (though he was a Cardinal at the time) and, just recently, Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York City who was vacationing on Capri with his family.

A Menu Faithful to the Island

Featuring traditional recipes from Anacapri, serving fish and seafood daily specials only if there is a catch of the day which merits the plate, combining classic flavors and scents from Capri with contemporary interpretations: the menu at Trattoria Il Solitario is truly a journey of discovery for the palate.

But for purists, never fear: though we may take you on a flavorful voyage, our roots remain deep in the soil of Capri and a steaming plate of classic ravioli capresi are never far from hand.

Expensive non personal service

Cannot understand all the 5 star reviews for this place. The garden was nice but very quiet and they were playing cover version of smiths songs which leaves a rather somber atmosphere. Food was okay... more »

Il Solitario: Location

Back to the top

Wandering Anacapri's old town, the highest point on the island of Capri, is pure pleasure. The San Michele Church with its magnificent majolica floor, the historic Aragonese tower, now the Casa Rossa Museum, the main church, and the numerous tiny workshops, artisan boutiques, and stores lining the lanes are all steps from the tiny flowering alleyway which marks the entrance to the Trattoria Il Solitario: it doesn't get any more convenient than this!
