More about Taverna del Capitano
Sailing along the routes described in mythology, take a long detour, tack over to the Peninsula Sorrentina, arrive at Punta Campanella, ending up more or less below Nerano, specifically in the bay of Marina del Cantone. According to the geography of myth this was the home of the sirens. These beautiful, seductive singers caused shipwrecks between Capri, Sorrento and Positano, within sight of the Galli islands. In the Taverna del Captiano all types of hypnosis and enticement, in terms of both food and ambience, offer you a ?welcome? in a land where myth is always present. Alfonso Caputo and his sister Mariella are young patrons, who talk about customers as if they were sailors, whom they know how to welcome and look after. Alfonso liberates his culinary creations from their archaic bonds, rejuvenates and reinterprets them. Mariella greets customers, pampers them and offers advice. Here people come to look for the myth of flavours and lost tranquillity. And they find it. The aim of Alfonso Caputo?s cooking is to make the most of local products, emphasising their flavour through research and presentation with an emphasis on colour, following a philosophy of cooking anchored in tradition yet open to the future and full of ideas and creativity.
