Capri and its restaurants
During your stay in Capri enjoy local food in local restaurants and guesthouses. A good pizza, or a whole fresh mozzarella. Try the insalata caprese or spaghetti with tomato sauce. Mediterranean cooking is fond of olive oil and is particularly light and tasty, far from complicated fat sauces rich in cream and butter, just good and healthy. After dinner have a small glass of limoncello and don't forget that Capri ice creams, completely handmade, are known worldwide.
