Concierge.com's insider take:

This Slow Food, shabby-chic restaurant is a novelty in Capri; a welcome change from pink tablecloths and black-stemmed glasses. Only one room and a cute courtyard are laid out with proper restaurant tables; elsewhere you sit at sofas, in armchairs, or wherever there's a perch amidst the clutter of objets d'art, antiques, cooking pots, and a (still functioning) vintage espresso machine. The menu is equally original: gourmet versions of peasant dishes from the area around Naples, such as paccheri with braciola (seasoned veal and ham rolls), tortiera di alici (a dish of baked anchovies dusted with garlic, parsley, and chili), and migliaccio (a comforting, grandma-style pudding made from semolina and ricotta). The domestic ambience carries through into friendly service and cross-table socialising. Add the charms of a vino buff's wine list and the fact that the place is full of locals, and Èdivino is a winner. Upstairs, two equally boho rooms are rented out on a B&B basis—a good choice out of season, when it can be difficult to find accommodation on the island.—Lee Marshall
