LA CANZONE DEL MARE
A historic restaurant with a view of the Bay of Marina Piccola and the Faraglioni rocks. In the 1940s, the British music-hall comedienne Gracie Fields fell head-over-heels in love with the Island of Capri and, in particular, with an old fort overlooking the Bay of Marina Piccola and the Faraglioni. It was here that she realized the Canzone del Mare bathing establishment and, at the same time, created what was soon to become one of the island’s finest eateries. Today, as in years past, clients dining at Restaurant Canzone del Mare enjoy Capri’s excellent fish cuisine and an array of Mediterranean specialties, served in the main dining room, in the veranda or on the magnificent sea view terrace.
