La Fontelina - Capri

Go to the top

At the foot of Capri's Faraglioni rocks, where the sea is warm and crystal clear and the silence is broken only by the sound of the waves, you'll find Fontelina: the restaurant belonging to the historic beach club with which it shares its name.

A family passion

Run for more than half a century by the Arcucci and Gargiulo families, Fontelina is famous for its exquisite maritime cuisine, prepared with the freshest of fish and seafood.

If you don't fancy fish, the menu features a number of vegetarian dishes too, including the island's delicious ravioli capresi

The restaurant's sangria, provides the perfect accompaniment to dishes which are both pleasingly simple and surprisingly light.

Brides on the beach

The fabulous food, wonderful wine and breathtakingly beautiful location - within swimming distance of the Faraglioni - make Fontelina the kind of place dream weddings come true!

Fontelina is one of the island's favorite beach clubs, easily reached on foot, from the Tragara viewing terrace, or by taxi-boat from Marina Piccola.

Insider tips

We suggest you book your table as soon as you arrive on the island, especially if you plan to visit Capri in the peak summer months.

Fontelina's rocky beach is made up of shallow reefs, making it unsuitable for small children.

La Fontelina: Location

Back to the top

The Fontelina restaurant is located on the tiny beach at the foot of the Faraglioni, in one of the most beautiful corners of the Island of Capri.

You can reach Fontelina by boat or on foot, using the steep, downhill path which starts just beneath the Punta Tragara viewing point. If you don't fancy making the uphill return journey, you can always take the restaurant's shuttle boat service to Marina Piccola instead.
