Tucked up next to the clock tower and over looking the famous Piazza Umberto Pulalli Wine bar has excellent wine, fresh food and a birds eye view of the beautiful people and celebrities that float in and out of the piazzeta in Capri, Italy. Lucia is running a small kitchen with bold tastes.
The service is friendly and informal. We chatted with Lucia and she told us the history of the building (inn from the early 1900s), went through the extensive wine list (wines from all over Italy) and shared her thoughts on tourists (varied by country).
The food is as impressive as the views. The burrata made me dizzy with its rich flavor. Split this ball of goodness open and incredibly soft mozzarella curds and cream spill out.
Combining ginger with the citrus and Italian olive oil served with the tuna tartare gave the dish a nice sweet spicy flavor. The pasta is house made with vegetables from the island and was finished in a flash.
Pulalli is known for its fresh fish and this night the catch was Orata. Delicious!
Pulalli Wine Bar is small and is always full so reservations are recommended. There is a table for two on the small balcony with views of the sea that is worth requesting.
