As you make your way from the center of Capri to Villa Jovis, be sure to stop at "Lo Sfizio"!

If you're looking for good, honest food, excellent value for money and a relaxed, informal atmosphere, you'll love Capri's Lo Sfizio restaurant.

At Lo Sfizio, age-old island recipes are used to produce delicious fresh pasta, meat and fish dishes. The pizzas cooked in the traditional wood burning oven, like the chicken, roasted under a brick. Meals are served in the main dining room or outside, at one of the little tables lining the pedestrian pathway. In the evening, additional tables are set in the small garden right next to the restaurant.

With its winning combination of simple home cooking and unbeatable value for money, it's hardly surprising if, within just months of opening, Lo Sfizio is already one of the islanders favorite restaurants.

Our specialties

At Lo Sfizio the delicious flavors and aromas are just like those produced in Capri's domestic kitchens. First courses are dominated by fresh pasta, used to make the traditional pecorino, ricotta and marjoram filled ravioli capresi , and the spiral shaped "gemelli", these served with a fabulous clam, courgette and sword fish sauce. Second courses range from fresh fish dishes to Lo Sfizio's albeit legendary chicken under the brick. Vegetarians will find it hard to resist the mouthwatering aubergine parmigiana.

Lo Sfizio’s fragrant pizzas, cooked in a traditional wood burning oven, are served at lunch and dinner.


Ristorante Lo Sfizio is situated halfway between the Piazzetta and Villa Jovis, in a peaceful area of Capri which the locals refer to as "di Tiberio" or "belonging to Tiberius". Its location makes it the ideal spot in which to lunch before or after a visit to the ruins of the residence from where, many centuries ago, Emperor Tiberius used to decide the fate of the whole of the Roman Empire.

Within easy walking distance of the historic center of Capri and yet far enough away to escape the crowds, Lo Sifzio is a great choice for both a romantic candlelit dinner for two or a pizza amongst friends.
