Glowig's gem.

German chef Oliver Glowig nobly managed to get this Anacapri staple (in the Capri Palace Hotel) a Michelin star (2004). This is no small feat on an island where the views are better than the food. Part of it is Loro Piana bedroom-eyes ambiance: cashmere and cotton couches, soft wool, and big lamps. Condè Naste put the restaurant on its 2007 Gold List. All well and good, as is the food — Mediterranean, Neapolitan, continental fusion — but the truth is that you're really here to let the luxury pamper you and look through picture windows at the glory that is the sea. This a honeymoon restaurant that run syou €100/150 a head. The dishes (including parmigiana di melanzane and raviolo ripieno di ostriche, oysters) are what you’d expect from a top-flight restaurant, though it’s increasingly difficult to make sense of price in terms of view, since the view remains the same but the prices climb. — Katrina Maiano

L’Antica Trattoria  

Big night...

Workmanlike upscale, which is to say wannabe luxury. There’s a €110 prix fixe menu and a vegetarian one for half the price (they also have glutin-free menu). The ambience is pleasant, the service slow, the menu as ample in regional dishes (pasta, seafood, and meat) as you could possibly want. The antipasti are a highlight, flooded in tomato reds. All in all, this is the kind of place you’d be happiest going to as part of a group, with someone else picking up the tab. The venue was once a stable; the restaurant first opened in the 19th century. Closed Jan. 10-Feb 10. — David Amory

La Cambusa  

Seafood comes first.

Among the first restaurants you see when arriving at Marina Grande. Terrific outdoor dining area offers views of Spiaggia Grande. The seafood is excellent and Neapolitan cherry tomatoes add a little something to the sauces. Begin with sciscinielli (fish on lemon leaves) as an appetizer, spaghetti alle cozze (mussels) for a first course, turbot for the entrée and finish your meal with lemon cake. Reservations recommended. Open year round from noon to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to midnight. Piazza Amerigo Vespucci, where the restaurant is located, is off Via Marina. — Kelly Carter

La Cantina di Via Sapienza  

Lupini, baby clams.

Gaetano Formato and the whole family chatter while feeding you the ultimate in Napolitano casareccia cuisine. Polpette al sugo con lupini (baby clams), penne aumma aumma (with eggplant and mozzarella), tagliata (strips of beef over salad), dozens of fabulous contorni (I swoon over the friarielli, mushroomed eggplant, spicy cauliflower, and sweet carrots), good house wines, and, if available, excellent babá, all at low prices. Ideal for a long Saturday afternoon with friends. Open for lunch Monday-Saturday 12 p.m.-3:30 p.m. — Michael Sedge

La Capannina  

The perfect door.

Francesco De Angelis is a soft-spoken, classy gentleman and his charming restaurant reflects a pre-mobile phone approach to living and dining. The doorway has a doll-house look and the walls are predictably lined with photographs of visiting celebrities (an Amalfi Coast necessity), but the effect is muted. De Angelis doesn’t really need you to look. The covered veranda is delightful (in the back; the front is narrower and more cluttered), though you'll need to ask for it specifically when you book. The house label Capri white is refreshing with a caprese (fresh tomatoes and mozzarella) or veal. Pasta-wise, try ravioli capresi, linguine con lo scorfano (flat spaghetti with scorpion fish), and pezzogna, sea bream a casserole with baked potatoes. Spend a few minutes in the bakeries near the restaurant before dining and munch on assorted taralli biscuits. Closed November-March and Wednesday in March and October, after the tourist rush. Booking a must. — Katrina Maiano

La Favorita O' Parrucchiano  

Sit next to a rubber plant.

They call it a "Museum of Hospitality" and it's much like dining in an indoor garden — a greenhouse really. Grab a table beside a rubber plant and order a caprese or cannelloni, which they do well. Nice stracetti, beef strips, with arucola. You can ask waiters to put pomodorini (cherry tomatoes) on just about any main course. Family-run since 1868, a cool two centuries, legend has it chef Salvatore Coletta invented cannelloni here in 1907, when the restaurant was known only as La Favorita, or "the preferred place" and was favored by upper classes (the only kind who could eat out). The pasta was known at first as strascinati — or “run overs” — since the dough was flattened, rolled, and stretched out by a pin. Closed Wednesday in winter. — David R. Deropolous

La Fontelina  

The hungering...

Seafood by the sea and under a limestone cliff at this lunch-only Faraglioni staple, which exists to be exotic. Unless you own a yacht (and some folk here do), take a boat from Marina Tragara (the grand entrance) or wind your way down after strolling beyond the dead-end of Punta Tragara. The fish fare is fair enough (bream-like pezzogna, octopus, tiny clams prawns), but the sliver of rocks and beach tends to pack up excessively in summer. If seafood isn’t your speed, try polpette di melanzane. There’s also a buffet and sangria. Best months are May, early June and September, just before the Capri summer onslaught, and lunch-time heat that can make you want to be anyplace but on a "beach." Expect to pay at least €60 a head. Closed October through Easter. Again, lunch only! — Katrina Maiano

La Mattonella  

Calamaretti galore.

Pasta with calamaretti is delectable in this small restaurant replete with oddball wall tiles — hence the name. It’s been around forever (behind Piazza del Plebiscito) and actually serves delicious pesto Genovese. Mozzarella and eggplant (as an antipasto) and a pasta dish runs you only about €15. — Angela Della Notte

La Tagliata  

Romantic lunch or dinner up high...

Whoever says you can’t get good meat on the Amalfi Coast hasn’t been to this gem. Located high above Positano in charming Montepertuso, this family-owned and operated home style restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining. Don’t worry about ordering, just nod your head for platters of antipasti, pasta and meat (pomodoro e mozzarella, fegatini e patate, affettato della casa,) and the list goes on. Six fresh pastas are served and the mouthwatering grilled meat plate includes lamb shish kabobs, chicken, rabbit, pork and duck. Fresh fish and divine desserts. Restaurant provides transportation to Montepertuso from Positano; call them. Open daily for lunch and dinner. Reservations recommended. — Kelly Carter

La Taverna del Leone  

Ravioli con astice alla verdura.

Nestled along the steep coastline (on SS 163) and owned by Antonio Guida, La Taverna was founded in 1965, at the very start of the Amalfi boom, and offers elegant indoor and patio dining. Start with the fried mozzarella with smoked fish. Then, enjoy the light-as-a-feather ricotta cheese and eggplant stuffed ravioli with fresh tomato sauce. The seafood kebob is amazing and the pizza would please a Napoletano. Pizza also, but only in the evening. Save room for the desserts. €30. Open for lunch and dinner. (The inn also has a few rooms for travelers.) Closed in January. — Kelly Carter

Lo Scoglio  

Marina del Cantone circa 1950.

Chef-owner Antonietta Gargulio and her family pride themselves on buying practically nothing they serve at their 60-year-old glass-enclosed restaurant, which sits on a dock at the port of Marina del Cantone south of Naples. The fish come from the Gulf of Salerno. They have an organic vegetable garden and raise chemical-free cows, chicken and pigs. The must-have dishes include: polipo all’insalata, spaghetti alle zucchine, melanzane alla parmigiana). Though much-praised, this is not a guidebook restaurant; call them. — Kelly Carter

Mood is moody.

Mood is all about that. Here you get candles, champagne cocktails, a bar in the shape of a “L” and maybe just a too a few too many minimalist enticements. Most are directed to the bar crowd, which is sure-fire income. Put that behind you and you get to an undeniably handsome restaurant with inventive food. Chef Antonio Cuccurullo has his own blog where he advertises his latest concoctions. Among them: Tortelli al nero di seppia con mela verde e dadolata di gamberi (square pasta with cuttlefish, green aples and shrip); carbonara di ostriche (oyster carbonara) and hamburger di calamari con maionese centrifugata al limone (a calamari burger with lemon-tinged maionese). Open only four days a week, but until 4 a.m. — Angela Della Notte

Musicians in Pompei.

Traditional food and entertainment in true Neapolitan-style, which to say strolling musicians and pointed serenades. Owner Michele Costanzo (who runs an excellent kitchen) is pleased to accommodate English-speaking clients. Enjoy! — Matt Santaspirt

Oro Bruno Cafè  

Evening pours.

This opens at 7 a.m. as a coffee bar, but life really begins after evening falls as it evolves into a sophisticated wine and cocktail bar. Locals pile in for proper cocktails mixed by the expert baristas: from traditional Manhattans and Martinis to the latest craze. Or select from their wines, brandies, and other spirits. The champagne and prosecco will be nicely chilled awaiting your arrival. This spot jumps late, some snacks are on hand in case you were too busy to dine earlier. Open daily, 7 a.m.-1 a.m. or later, closed mid-August. — Judy Edelhoff

Picchio Verde  

Leave it in the owner's hands.

A bargain, family-run establishment with traditional, home-style cooking. Tonino, the animated owner, is a joy. Don’t ask for a menu, just put your trust in him and let the food flow. If you’re looking for something unique, ask Tonino to prepare carbonara with green tomatoes. Open at 1 p.m. for lunch, with dinner starting at 7 p.m. In the Acerra district. — Matt Santaspirt

Pizzeria Di Matteo  

Casual Di Matteo.

Salvatore Di Matteo got this pizzeria up going in the Fascist 1930s and it hasn’t changed much since the start-up. A one-time cold storage plant, it's all slab marble tables with the pizza oven in full view of diners. You find the usual pizza suspects, margherita and napoletana, but some twists. Fried pizza, for example. No frills here, just dough, toppings, cook, and serve. — Angela Della Notte

Pizzeria Gino Sorbillo  

Gino says, "Accept no substitutes."

If you’re searching for great pizza in Naples, here’s a place to try. The number of people waiting patiently outside this family-run restaurant demonstrate its worth. There are now three generations of the Sorbillo family in the pizza business, in Italy and the United States. Reservations highly advisable. Open 12:00-3:30 p.m. for lunch, 9-11:30 p.m. for dinner. Closed Sundays, except in December. — Suzanne Bush

Ristorante & Pizzeria da Gigino  

Pizza U.

Giving new meaning to "all you can eat," this self-styles University of Pizza (L'Università della Pizza da Gigino, Pizza al Metro) outside of Sorrento serves sumptuous pizza (by the meter) with a dizzying array of toppings. This décor is 1970s. Like bumper cars, waiters scoot antipasti carts with eggplant prepared in every which way, cheese, green peppers and stuffed mushrooms (the dessert tray is just as impressive). But large pizzas (by the meter) are the main attraction, and size does matter. Ovens can accommodate pies measuring more than two-and-half meters, nearly seven feet. — Monica Larner

Ristorante Aurora  

Always busy in summer.

Pizza lovers flock here for the pizza all’acqua — thin pizza with mozzarella and a sprinkling of peperoncino. Outdoor tables in summer make this the perfect place to see and be seen. For privacy seekers, there is an indoor area too. Food is secondary to the scene, which is genuinely fun. Closed January and February. Ope daily in summer. Reservations essential. — Kelly Carter

Ristorante Caruso  

In the Maestro's honor.

In essence an Enrico Caruso museum that doubles as a restaurant. Ignore the ultra-kitsch inherent to all such efforts and you'll delight in tenor paraphernalia and eat well, a nice combination (Caruso was Neapolitan). The translated menu is laconic risotto with lobster and lemon, sea bass with pistachio and salmon with Champagne. Look at the Italian and you get the good stuff: Tartara di scampi su finocchi marinati e panna acidulata con erba cipollina, shrimp tartare with fennel, Fagottino di ricotta e limone saltati con vongole e gamberi, pyramids of ricotta in lemon, with shrimp and clams, Lasagnetta tricolore con verdure mediterranee, three-colored small lasagna (dipped in spinach for the green) and local vegetables. Prix fix menus run €50 to €70, add the wine and you're easily over €100. — David Amory
