Il Geranio, Capri

8 Via Matteotti
Italy 80073
Tel: 39 081 837 0616's insider take:

After a couple of changes of name and ownership over the years, this secluded, panoramic restaurant near the Garden of Augustus has finally hit its stride—though it's best sampled when temperatures are warm enough to eat outside on one of the sea-view terraces, as the large inside dining space smacks a little of a hotel breakfast room. The menu takes the standard Capri seafood repertoire for an elegant spin in dishes such as rigatoni with swordfish or lobster thermidor. Service can be a little formal at times, but with that view, the quality food, and the candlelit ambience, you're unlikely to spend much time studying the waiters.—Lee Marshall
