Di Capri

Authentic Italian meals in a lively setting

Time Out Says

Making it to Di Capri can be a little tricky if you’re the type of person who is easily distracted by the buffet and the sushi bar you walk past on your way in.

Once inside, the welcome platter includes a crispy focaccia bread with oregano, garlic, fresh tomato sauce, cheese and olives, which all make for a very comforting combination.

The calamari appetiser is crispy and comes with vegetable tempura, courgette fries and a tasty Shichimi tartar sauce. Good choice, we pat ourselves on the back.

The millefoglie di melanzane alla parmigiana, rucola pomodorini e burrata (good luck pronouncing that if you’re not Italian) is a winning blend. The aubergine parmigiana is slightly sweet and balanced well with the creaminess from the burrata.

For mains, we opt for a salmon ravioli with pink sauce and caviar. The dish is far too salty for our liking but the sauce is fresh and the ravioli is perfectly cooked. We try the Di Capri pizza with porcini mushrooms, truffle paste, onions, smoked cheese and boiled potato. Although boiled potato seems unusual on pizza, this particular version is a Neapolitan classic and the potato works wonderfully well with porcini mushrooms.

The service is on point and the restaurant is well decorated with glass jars and pasta displays at the entrance. We’re particularly happy with all the authentic options in the menu and if you’re ever craving a homely, comforting Italian meal, look no further.
