If you happen to be in Ravello or are near during your Amalfi Coast vacation, certainly stop here to consider your ceramic purchases. In the last week we've seen ceramic shops in Sorrento, on Capri, in Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. This store is a short walk from the Ravello Duomo. While standing on the Duomo's steps and with the Doumo... More

My husband & I visited Ravello for a few days in July & fell in love with the town immediately. Then we entered the Carmela shop and were smitten! We loved everything we saw & Alfonso was so nice to talk to. We were going home the next day & so we made (for us) the uncharacteristically bold decision to... More

The most beautiful, unique and intricate designs in any of the shops along the Amalfi Coast! I especially loved the blue and white lemon design. This shop is frequented by the Hollywood elite (see the photos on the wall) and several local Palazzos (Palazzo Avino had their dishes appointed here). While in the store it was apparent many customers were... More

I visited this shop in June, 2014 and purchased beautiful linens. Other shops in the area did not display the cost of each item, making it more difficult to inquire about their merchandise. At this store, the cost was easily located, the shop owners were kind, and I didn't feel pressured to make a purchase.

It is very difficult (mentally) to spend money on a large souvenir on the very first day of your vacation. What if you find something better in the next city? But I fell in love with the ceramics at Ceramiche d'Arte Carmela. We looked around in Ravello, and the other ceramics didn't compare. I returned to the shop and agonized... More

This is a fantastic experience. The items for sale are beautifully set out and made so inviting to buy. The range on display is mind boggling! The staff are friendly and helpful.

My wife and I went to this shop in June 2014. Great selection, excellent people. One piece was broken on the ship back to USA. No problem, a replacement was on the way in a week. Excellent.

I visited Ceramiche d'Arte Carmela in Ravello back in April during our visit to Italy to see friends. I purchased a few things while there, and ordered a few pieces of their red peacock patterned plates. I worked with Roberta by email and ordered the plates I wanted. They just arrived and are beautiful...just like I remembered them looking in... More

My wife and I visited Ravello in 2010 and purchased several pieces of pottery at this shop. They had a wonderful selection and we had great service. We had everything shipped to the US and it all arrived perfectly. Unfortunately I recently broke one of the pieces and wanted to get a replacement. Upon contacting Roberta via email she was... More

We adore Carmello and Alfonso. Their pottery shop has the widest variety and the best prices in Ravello. We bought six place settings from them two summers ago, and since have ordered more via email. What we bought from Ceramiche d'Arte Carmela arrives looking exactly like the pieces on the floor. That is not always true from other vendors, whose... More
