Welcoming guests for over a century
The original Casa Mariantonia, later expanded and modernized, was built in the first half of the 1800s.
It was Mariantonia herself - great-grandmother of the hotel's current hosts - who opened the first restaurant and inn here, an informal, family-style hostel where passing travelers were treated as family, sitting around dinner table and sharing the same dishes.
Over the past centuries, guests including Alberto Moravia, Jean Paul Sarte, Elsa Morante, and Totò have broken bread with Mariantonia and her family.
Today, some things have changed: bathrooms are no longer in common and travelers no longer have to arrive in Anacapri by donkey. But some have remained the same: the familiar feel and island warmth are as strong as they've always been.
