Mammà - Capri

With this quote, chef Gennaro Esposito perfectly articulates his philosophy in the kitchen:

If my cooking were an emotion, it would be altruism: my dishes are flavored with my desire to pass on a sense of joy and excitement to whomever tastes them. I put my soul into my cooking, just like Mammà would.

It was with this philosophy that this star chef opened Mammà, a restaurant specializing in Neapolitan cuisine just steps from the Piazzetta along the lane toward Santa Teresa at the former site of the storied Ristorante Gemma, where visiting intellectuals would gather in the 1930's. This is one of the most beautiful spots on the island, with a sweeping terrace over the Bay of Naples.

Chef Esposito's philosophy was a winning one, as he was awarded a Michelin star in 2015, just two years after inaugurating his Mammà.

Star-Quality Ingredients

Chef Esposito, after having worked in Montecarlo and Paris and as head chef at the famed Torre del Saracino in Vico Equense, brought to Capri his unique style based on a cuisine featuring traditional dishes and excellent local fish and seafood with his menu at Mammà. Only the freshest and most local ingredients are allowed to pass through his kitchen doors each morning, brought by the best fishermen in Capri and farmers in Anacapri and selected personally by Esposito.

Inside the kitchen at Mammà, Salvatore La Ragione, former student of Gennaro Esposito and today a respected chef in his own right, is also hard at work...hard enough to have earned his first Michelin star in 2015. His dishes are simple yet complex, founded on a selection of only the best ingredients and a careful preparation with particular attention to the blend of flavors. The results are minor masterpieces of Mediterranean cuisine.

The Rules at Mammà

Inside the restaurant, guests can read the house rules posted on the chalkboard:

  • There is only one Mammà
  • Mammà is a new concept in dining, aimed at ensuring you the best meal each day
  • No one knows better than we do the best dishes of the us!
  • Mammà does not have cold storage or freezers
  • Mammà creates each daily menu based on the freshest ingredients that morning, for the smallest environmental impact possible

A Feast for the Eyes

Your meal at Mammà is made even more memorable by the attentive staff, who welcomes you to the elegant dining room, decorated in an understated palette of whites and beiges, with accents inspired by the azure water of the surrounding Mediterranean. The careful decor is the perfect backdrop for both the cuisine and the breathtaking view over the Bay of Naples and the Piazzetta, and the three together guarantee an unforgettable culinary experience.

Mammà: insider review


(ItalyTraveller Copywriter&Editor)

Cucina gourmet e panorama da sogno: gli ingredienti per una serata perfetta...

Se siete in cerca di un posto romantico, panoramico e dove si mangi divinamente bene, l'indirizzo giusto è Mammà. La sala si trova su una grande terrazza coperta e riparata dal vento da un grande vetrata che dà l'impressione quasi di essere all'aperto. Nelle calde serate estive si può anche cenare sui tavolini messi all'aperto. Lo sguardo va dal Monte Solaro al Campanile della Piazzetta con il mare davanti. Vi consiglio di arrivare non troppo tardi per godervi le luci del tramonto.

Ma non fatevi distrarre troppo dal panorama: da Mammà si viene soprattutto per la cucina stellata dello chef Salvatore La Ragione, stella Michelin nel 2015 e pupillo di Gennaro Esposito che detta la linea del ristorante. Leggete pure il menù, ma poi lasciatevi consigliare e suggerire un percorso guidato tra i sapori "di mammà". Non ve ne pentirete!

Mammà: Location

The Ristorante Mammà is on Via Madre Serafina, just steps from the Piazzetta di Capri in the town's historic center along the road towards Santa Teresa.
