1//

IL RICCIO | Capri

Situated next to the Blue Grotto in Capri, the secret tip here is to bring your bathing suit for a refreshing post-lunch plunge into the Med. Depending on the conditions, those lucky enough can swim right into the grotto. Towels come with the service. Insider tip - make sure you leave room for dessert as their infamous “Temptation Room” will beckon your inner sweet tooth.

LA CONCA DEL SOGNO | Nerano

The name aptly translates to “bay of dreams”. Situated at the base of a cliff and ideally accessed by boat, the setting is nothing short of spectacular. A pitcher of local wine immersed with chunks of fresh, mouth-watering peaches is essential here.

LA SPONDA AT LE SIRENUSE | Positano 

This picture speaks a thousand words. The views and setting here will guarantee one of the most memorable and romantic restaurants you will ever dine in

4//

LA FONTELINA | Capri

One of the most exclusive beach clubs in Capri which can be accessed by boat or foot. Feel the world's problems instantly melt away with the ice in your rosato. The blue and white parasols nestled among the rocks salute the brilliant blue of the Mediterranean below. The food and setting are beyond spectacular; they are faultless – this is pure heaven Italian style!

 5//

DA ADOLFO | Positano

No trip to the Amalfi is complete without a visit to this institution. The restaurant has consistently delivered on simple yet stunning produce and fresh seafood for decades. After gorging on a delicious lunch, spend the rest of the afternoon reclining on their private sun loungers. Half the fun is just getting there via the private hop-on boat which departs from Positano pier.

 6//

LE GROTELLE | Capri

A stunning terrace built into the rock with some of the most impressive views on the island. Simple, fresh flavoursome meals prepared by Mama Rosa are only enhanced by the rustic atmosphere. Those feeling energetic may enjoy a rewarding 20-30min hike in from town.

 7//

BAGNI TIBERIO | Capri

Seated on a beautiful veranda built above the remains of an ancient roman bath where Emperor Tiberius once bathed. Next to the restaurant you can view the ruins of a small amphitheatre which dates back to Roman times. Another restaurant with boat-only access offering inimitable Italian style.

 8//

TREVILLE BEACH CLUB | Positano

Recently restored and converted into a beach club neighbouring Da Adolfo, Treville serves a casual but upscale family style lunch equipped with their very own outdoor pizza oven. This is the place to see and be seen among the beautiful people. A very welcome addition to the Amalfi coast.

 9//

LO SCOGLIO | Nerano

Situated just outside of Sorrento, this restaurant is set on a long dock overlooking the picturesque Marina del Cantone. A typical family-run institution that is fashionable with locals where fresh, authentic Mediterranean cuisine perfectly compliments the vista.

 10//

LA TAGLIATA | Positano A welcome pitstop after a hike to Nocelle. Stop here for lunch to enjoy the view by day, which is as equally as mesmerising by night. A fun family-style experience specialising in home grown produce. Here there is no menu, the meal is simply determined by your appetite!
