We stumbled into La Cisterna during the off-season where most places were closed. We were looking for something other than the few places that were open in the main tourist areas. The owner was very gracious and warmly invited us in. Best pizza we had during our week in Italy. I ordered the veal with lemon sauce which was fantastic.... More

As others we stumbled upon this charming place and were so happy and satisfied that we did. Capri is small but the prime locations with a view for eats come with a $$$ price tag. Dont even get me started on the crowds every where. So we walked up a few steps from the main road and started wandering when... More

We came across this place when we we searching for another pizza restaurant that must have closed down. Like others, we were a little dubious as to what we would find, but it was great! The place is somehow bizarrely a refreshing change to all the hype and glitz of most places in Capri, and the informal, unpretentious ambiance seemed... More

Stumbled across this place when we got off the Main Street. Don't let the looks fool you, the pizza is fabulous. Price is right too.

A bit hard to find even though this little traditional place is just a few steps away from the main piazetta. Great for reasonably-priced and very good pizza and pasta.

Capri is expensive for starters so we understood the service charge yet after over a week around Italy this was our only service charge. There's not many options up top Capri so I suggest staying below, as there were busier restaurants. We stumbled across this place and yet greeted by the owner there was club music playing at lunch. He... More

Stumbled across La Cisterna when wandering around Capri. We were greeted by the owner who told us that he had been saving us a romantic table for 2. Had some tasty food for lunch (including a lovely traditional Caprese salad) washed down with the owner's homemade wine, adorned with a fabulous decades old picture of him, sunning himself by the...

We had bad dinner day before at Capri and therefor checked restaurants at Tripadvisor and got my eye on La Cisterna. We were checking out the menu outside the restaurant and the owner was there also and somehow he knew we were from Finland, and we didn't even speak finnish there?! He knew Finnish words pretty well, which was pretty... More

Our family of four stayed on the island for three days in early May. We ate in many restaurants and had great meals. We were treated like family at this restaurant and felt like we had stepped into a scene from the Disney movie, "Lady and the Tramp". Our pizza and pasta were fresh and very good. We ordered a...
