Villa Jovis was once the luxurious residence of the Roman emperor Tiberius on the island of Capri, and today the new Villa Jovis restaurant on Capri takes its inspiration from this ancient imperial retreat. Savor the flavors and traditional dishes of southern Italy surrounded by a sumptuous decor and overlooking the Bay of Naples.
Dine under arches and surrounded by the columns, statues, amphoras, mosaics, paintings, and relief work for which Roman villas were so admired: at the Villa Jovis restaurant, you can relax in the elegance of an ancient Roman villa while sampling the best of Italy's southern cuisine.
In the main dining room, the warm Mediterranean palette makes for a perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner for two or an evening with friends or family. On warm summer evenings, choose to dine al fresco on the large outdoor terrace at Villa Jovis, under the canopy of stars and overlooking the twinkling lights of the coast along the Bay of Naples.
A sunset cocktail on the terrace at Villa Jovis is truly unforgettable and not to be missed!
