Every evening starts off with a hearty meal with friends and the numerous restaurants in Capri are a testament to this amiable culture. There are plenty of sophisticated cafes and bars in which to relax.

The mozzarella here is something of a local speciality and can be eaten on its own or with tomatoes, olive oil and basil as an Insalata Caprese. There are several local red and white wines including the fairly pricey, but very sophisticated, Capri Blu.

Capri and Anacapri are home to numerous wine and lounge bars in which to spend a relaxed evening. The most famous and popular spots include Anema e Core located in Via Sella Orta, the O Guarracino where you can listen to some great Neapolitan music, and the Lanterna Verde, an elegant wine bar in Anacapri.

For those in the fast lane - the Italians love to start their partying late, so things really hot up after midnight when there are plenty of discos and bars that stay open into the early hours of the morning.
