A fabulous experience!

Out of an eight day holiday, we dined here three times! Every meal was superb. We chose fish. The local Ricciola fish which my hubby had simply grilled and i had in a cherry tomato sauce. Next we experienced the Lemon fish baked in a salt crust which was served up by Guiseppe with an expert hand... read more

Tucked away further up the hill we ate at La Capannina. We only found it through other reviews and it didn't disappoint serving up traditional Amalfi fare with everything made fresh taking advantage of the amazing local produce. The fish was excellent as was the pasta. The host were incredibly friendly and even went to the effort of picking us... More

We ate our last meal in Amalfi at this restaurant in Pogerola. While the prices were very cheap and the service ok, the food was quite plain and left us feeling a little unsettled in the stomach. The decor also was a little 70s tavern style. The sausage & patatine pizza also is basically a pizza with chips on it... More

We enjoyed one of our best meals ever here, when you factor in food quality, location, and service. The owner himself served us, and he clearly took great delight in our enjoyment of the food he prepared. We had a bountiful antipasti, pasta with clams and lemon zest, and a superbly prepared lemon fish caught from the sea that morning.... More

We visited after a recommendation from fellow residents of the Excelsior... We walked up, and found the place to be clean and welcoming, with fantastic views over Ravello. The food was good, as described in the menu, and very good value for money. We'd recommend a visit.

In the small village high above Amalfi are a few restaurants to try. We tried all three and this one came up trumps for food friendliness and ambience. Of the three tried La Carcara was also excellent and family run and only just pipped by La Capannina. Gerry's pub is NOT a restaurant (unfortunately TripAdvisor does not make this distinction)...

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and we were very pleasantly surprised! The owner and his family (who help run the restaurant) were very friendly and even picked us up/dropped us off to/from our hotel in the rain. The food was amazing and well worth the price, the owner repeatedly checked on us to make sure we... More

Our driver Sal that we booked through Simply Amalfi took us here after visiting Pompeii....it was a quiet Sunday afternoon and we had an amazing meal. The owner had fresh mushrooms that he picked from the forest and made us a delicious appetizer. I still dream about my fresh pasta with lemon and zucchini flowers. The view is lovely and... More
