Capri is fine year round. The tourist leave with the last ferry and Capri remains relatively empty and charming.
Were you there as a resident? Or did you mean day trippers

Day trippers. There are only a few hotels on the island and not remotely enough to make it feel busy.

2 small related threads, although I didn't see that restaurant mentioned.

In summer Capri is a nightmare.  It's so packed with tourists, that you can hardly move.  August is a no, as the place is swamped with italians on Holiday.

Anyone been to this place? Any good?

I've been several times. The restaurant is OK. There is a very limited menu of simple food presented nicely. The hotel is one of the best on the island. Neither are particularly exciting IMO. The Amalfi coast has far superior hotels but no kosher.

Anyone do a trip to Amalfi? Any recommendations for food, or is it BYOK?

There is no kosher food in Amalfi. Capri is a 30 min boat ride away and has a kosher restaurant at the Tiberio palace hotel.

My wife and I are considering going to Ischia for 4 days/3 nights.  Anyone been there? Advice on any must see/dos? Any insight on the Kosher food situation? TIA!

Yes, great simple and tasty food. Nice wine selection. If you go to Capri you must stay at least 1 night preferably 2+. The island gets packed with tourists during the day and quiets down at night and is really beautiful to walk around. Definitely do a boat tour around the island and visit all the caves and sights. Rent a scooter and go to the blue grotto for sunset and a swim in the cave. If your staying overnight that's the best way to see the blue grotto. During the day they don't let you swim unless you come on a tour and the wait is long usually.

Planning a trip to Italy for a week and want to get some feedback on the itinerary is it enough time in each destination, anything to add

Friday fly into Venice - 2 nights
(second time in Venice so don't need longer)
Sunday morning train to Rome - 2 nights
Tuesday morning train and ferry to Capri - 3 nights
Anything specific must see around Capri?
How to I get around is there public transit or I need to hire private tours to go see amalfi coast pompeii etc.?

Missing anything?

If you're at all interested in Florence, it's on the way to Rome.

Is there anywhere cheaper to stay in Capri than the hoyle with the kosher? 500 euro per night is a little extreme.

You can stay in Amalfi then go to Capri by boat
