Restaurant Il Capriccio

It is no wonder this is one of the best restaurants in the Gargano area if you witness the careful creation of the special dishes by chef Leonardo Vescera. Through his unique and incomparable process, he brings together the characteristic flavours of the Gargano region and enhances them in an unrivaled way.

Il Capriccio’s cuisine

Chef Leonardo’s delicious cuisine combines local seafood with the traditional vegetable dishes which are so popular in Puglia. For example, the authentic rice, potato and mussel dish is highly recommended, while more adventurous gourmets might also like to try the special menu based on recipes from bygone days. An all-time favourite on the menu is the delicious risotto with fermented black garlic, almonds and sea cicadas. This cozy seaside inn is an unmissable stop for anyone looking to try the best restaurants in the Gargano, Il Capriccio, and enjoy their food and drinks with breathtaking views of the marina.
