Executive and resident chef's Andrea Migliaccio and Giovanni Bavuso helm the One Michelin Star beach club restaurant that is Il Riccio in Anacapri.
Cut into the cliff, Il Riccio is a stunning beach club extension to the Capri Palace hotel. With a view directly onto one of Capri's most famous landmark - the Blue Grotto, a backdrop of panoramic sea views and matching azure tables elegantly describe the setting, whilst neatly above and below is an array of sun decks and a stone staircase leading down to the sea.
Serving wholesome yet delicate food in the most relaxed environment, the restaurant describes itself as 'a treasure trove of flavours for connoisseurs of seafood.' If you are feeling adventurous try the Plateau Royal, assorted raw fish from clams, scampi, tuna and cuttlefish, showcasing the best of the Capri. Customers rave about the infamous 'Spaghetti alla chitarra' a sea urchin and breaded black cod medallions affair. And whilst there may be too much in the way of choice, make sure you leave room for 'The Temptation Room',(yes, that is its name) a room dedicated to desserts. Like something out of a D&G campaign, bright majolica tiles, showcase a selection of treats from Neapolitan pastry traditions:rum babà, caprese cake, tarts and sfogliatelle.
Being a beach club and a Michelin Star, it can often confuse customers on the attire, but have no fear it is a chilled environment. As such we have shortlisted a few pieces that would work well. Also given the nature Il Riccio, Adriana Iglesias would be a very apt choice, see our previous article here
Be sure to also try the new Il Riccio Sea Lounge which has opened a new terrace. For aperitivo o'clock, it is our Negroni or Aperol spot for watching the sun set with a chilled live DJ playing in the background.
