Café Casa Oliv

”Munthe had dressed the dining table under the vines with a large vase of white lilies and a huge wine bottle of antique design filled with red Capri wine.”
– Diary of Ellen Nyblom 1889

Axel Munthe often organized lunches and dinners for this guests and friends at Villa San Michele. Today we invite you to socialize on the roof terrace of the villa with its breathtaking view over the Bay of Naples. Cafe’ Casa Oliv offers the same unique atmosphere as the museum and the garden. Up here you are far removed from the noise and chaos of mass tourism, all you hear is the whisper of the breeze and the song of the birds.

Like Munthe, we believe in plain food with the best local ingredients. During the course of the season, some of these come from Villa San Michele’s own kitchen garden: lemons, tomatoes, rosemary and basil.

The Café Casa Oliv is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 09:30am to 5:00pm. Monday weekly closing

We serve espresso, cappuccino, lunchtime food and panini, desserts or just a good glas of wine and "fizz".

The cafe’ is open to everybody, but should you also wish to visit the museum and the garden, you do need to get a ticket at the entrance of the museum.
Otherwise, just follow the arrows up the stairs to the right of the entrance to the villa and ring the bell for Cafe’ Casa Oliv by the black gate.

Café Casa Oliv can also be rented for private parties and events. For information, email or ring +39 081 837 1401
