Traditional Italian food served in traditional Italian trattorie is what you'll find on Capri. And it's what they do very well, particularly in the restaurants peppered around the island's interior. Prices are high but drop noticeably the further you get from Capri Town.

The island's culinary gift to the world is insalata caprese, a salad of fresh tomato, basil and mozzarella bathed in olive oil. Look out for caprese cheese, a cross between mozzarella and ricotta, and ravioli caprese, ravioli stuffed with ricotta and herbs.

Many restaurants, like the hotels, close over winter.

Next to the police station in Capri Town, the Deco supermarket (Map p174; Via Roma; £3 8am-8.30pm Mon-Sat, 8am-1pm Sun) is a good place to load up with picnic provisions.
