I enjoyed my visit here. It has some unique qualities. I only window shopped as the prices were mostly for the rich. The square was nice with plenty of dining options.

Told about this place by our taxi driver as a must see place on Capri. Smaller than I expected, but still a nice place to view. Busy place with limited places for a drink.

Very beautiful piazza with small stores and many Caffès. The only negative thing is that it's always very noisy and full of tourists.

If you are staying in Capri have your morning coffee and your pre-dinner drinks in the square. It is the best location for people watching... You can view the arriving day trippers, the locals going about their business and the vacationers staying on the island.

Nothing really spectacular. Crowded and similar to many of the other Piazzas. We did take a walk to the port rather than the fenicular. Was pleasant though at times steep decline can be tough on knees.

Same as previous answer, its a busy tourist spot, so can't see the shops and tours being closed. Its their main income.
