My Escapes Italy Naples, Islands, Pizza and Camorra! Capri Capri - the "Gem Island" Eating and Drinking on Capri

Eating and Drinking on Capri

August 22, 2015

Eating and drinking on Capri can also be andventurous...
I didn't want to miss out on a good pizza in central Capri and I also had a fresh salad near the Marina Grande.

Here are a few humble ideas on what to eat and drink when you're on Capri...

The limoncello liqueur should have priority, because it originates from this southern Italian region (in which Capri is included). You can buy these in almost any shop, including souvenir shops.

Limoncello is is at least one hundred years old and it's made from lemon zest (ingredient obtained by scraping the outer skin of the lemons), which is mixed with simple syrup.

The limoncello liqueur has an alcohol content of 28-32%.

I skipped the limoncello, but I couldn't jump over a delicious pizza... let alone, I chose to have a Pizza Capri - at the Don Alfonso Café.

The place had a fantastic setting at Via Roma 38. If you sit by the window, you can admire the view towards the Marina Grande.

Behold... my Pizza Capri with prosciutto...

It cost me a staggering 27 EUR with a small Peroni beer.

Eating at the Don Alfonso Café was a great experience - considering the beautiful setting and the fact that the pizza was named after this wonderful island.
Sometimes you have to make sacrifices and not look at the price.

The pizza dough was thin and slightly crunchy. It was overall very delicious, even thought I don't consider myself a fan of prosciutto.

One thing you must know: NEVER ASK FOR KETCHUP IN ITALY, when having traditional Italian pizza.

Real Italian pizza is not served with ketchup normally. But I also have it on the tip of my tongue whenever I have one in Italy.

Don't make a fool out of yourself, please!

OK, another great thing I had was this Capri Salad, which is not Caprese Salad - the latter having mozzarella and tomato slices as primary ingredients.

This was a fresh salad called "Capri Salad", sold at a restaurant in the port area - cost me around 8 EUR.
