Best Pizza and Steak on the Amalfi Coast (and fewer tourists)

Awesome find. We were looking for a pastry shop around midday and after a few too many right hand turns we ended up in Pogerola right outside (up the hill from) Amalfi. While looking around, we found a Pizzeria that seemed to be full of locals so we decided to return for dinner. We had such... read more

Wow! What a great restaurant! We were lucky enough to stay in Pogerola (up the hill from Amalfi) and found out from the owner of our B&B there was a restaurant near by called La Carcara that he highly recommended. My wife and I were somewhat sceptical and thought the recommendation was only because of its proximity to the B&B.... More

This is well worth the visit. A gem that is genuine quality Italian cooking reasonably priced without the tourist element. The simplicity, quality ingredients and family run business shines through. For example the bruschetta comprising white anchovy, tomatoes and olive oil was unbelievably flavoursome. The incredable simplicity of this dish and the taste sensation set the tone for the evening.... More

We ate there twice and really like the food and reasonably priced menu. Better than some of the over-priced restaurants in the Amalfi core area. My only suggestion would be candles on the tables on the terrace area.

Great selection of pizzas and wines.They have fresh seafood as well and you can choose as they bring the fish to the table. Old you get a complementary shot of limoncello at the end of your... More

On one of our last days in Amalfi, my family and friends took a lunch cooking class with Lucia and her husband Gino. As far as the food goes, I watched amazed at how such simple ingredients, so unassuming were turned into one of the most beautifully plated meals I have ever seen. Lucia was making fun of my brother-in-law... More

The food was perfect, fresh, simple and absolutely delicious. My 10 year old son ate the mussels and clams (the highest praise from a picky kid eater) The owners were warm, welcoming and as gracious as can be. Last but in no way least, the views were spectacular and the setting enchanting.

Our experience at La Carcara was incredible from start to finish. We are staying at a hotel in Amalfi and wanted something quick but good on a Saturday evening. Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. To start, they actually drove to my hotel to pick up my mother and I to take us to the restaurant... More
