Sorrento, Capri Restaurant Recommendations
I noticed several restaurant recs for Positano but not much on Sorrento and Capri. Looking for mid priced restaurant recommendations. Thanks so much.
In Sorrento, we ate at Rubinacchi, outside of the Hotel Eden. It was great with very good prices. The pizza there was excellent....4 euros or so depending on type....pastas were in the 7-10 euro range I believe. We had an excellent pasta with seafood, pasta with shrimp, zucchini and zucchini flowers, stuffed artichoke, stuffed zucchini flowers and fresh strawberries with lemon. Can't wait to go back to Sorrento and eat there. There is an outside garden and inside area. The night we were there it was filled with Italian families.
In Capri I had a great meal at Il Riccio. It's located right on the water, above the Blue Grotto. Gorgeous setting.
Another new place is restaurant at the Capri Tiberio Palace hotel. High end, but again, gorgeous setting. The food was fantastic last season, but haven't been there this year so I don't know if the chef is the same.
There are several great pizzerie on the island. Here is an article which is a round up of the best, plus pictures. It's in Italian, but the list is helpful. It's by a very dependable Italian wine blogger:
Hope this helps!
We were just in this area and went to a mix of very high end (Don Alfonso, La Sponda, Il San Pietro) restaurants and mid-priced, more casual places. For middle price range with great food and good atmosphere, I would recommend the following:
Positano: Da Vincenzo (try walking there after a drink at Palazzo Murat and a visit to the Church), Barilotto di Nonno (spaghetti with clams with chili oil is divine!) - walk there after a drink on the terrace at Hotel Il San Pietro.
Sorrento: La Basilica (yummy pizza/good wine list) ...AVOID IL BUCO - Pricey and bland with mediocre service.
Capri: Da Gelsomina in Ana Capri (home made pastas, fresh veggies, amazing views)
In all 3 places, AVOID the beach front restaurants by the docks. There is nothing worth trying.

I was in sorrento two weeks ago. Great and mediocre food. Walk around off the beaten path is best. Look at the menus and you also will be able to see the plates being served to the customers.
