At the start of the 19th century Capri discovered its vocation for the art of hospitality. Until such time, those visiting the island could only find lodgings courtesy of the religious orders or the families of fishermen and agricultural workers. Amongst the pioneers of the island's hotel trade was Vincenza Canale, our grandmother, who began to offer the patrons of her pensione the famous Limoncello as an after dinner drink or as a digestif.
The pensione Mariantonia soon became extremely popular and a favourite haunt of famous and frequent visitors to the island. Ignazio and Arturio Cerio, J.Fersen, Axel Munthe, F.A Krupp, and Amadeo Maiuri were just a few of the celebrities who used to gather at sunset at the Mariantoniat o enjoy the delicious liqueur. In hardly any time at all the fame of this Limoncello began to spread amongst travellers, writers, and other famous personalities who arrived on the island of Capri. It is by faithfully following our grandmother's original recipe that today we are able to produce the liqueur now known throughout the world as Limoncello.
