The unmistakable flavors and aromas of Capri's traditional cuisine, a terrace looking out over the Bay of Marina Piccola, and a spectacular view of the Faraglioni rocks: a meal at La Canzone del Mare is an eating experience you'll never forget! Built on the remains of an historic fort set in the coastal cliffs, this hidden cove became a hot spot in the 1950s-'60s for the international jet set, who would gather here to relax in luxury and style.
Did you know? The first owner of Canzone del Mare was none other than the late, great Gracie Fields, film star and singer!
From Sea to Table
Canzone del Mare's menus feature deliciously simple, flavor-packed Mediterranean dishes, prepared using the freshest of ingredients, including fish and seafood caught by the local fishermen and the island's super sweet, sun-ripened fruit and vegetables and pungent local herbs.
The wine list contains an impressive selection of Italian and regional wines, best sampled with juicy yellow peaches, a delicious island tradition.
More than a Restaurant
Not only is Canzone del Mare one of Capri's best known restaurants, it is also a popular bathing establishment with two pools, an exclusive venue in which to host a glamorous wedding reception, gala dinner or private party. To celebrate a special event, how about a dinner by candlelight on the veranda of the panoramic terraces overlooking the sparkling sea and dramatic Faraglioni on the horizon?
