Great food

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals and it did not disappoint. The food was excellent and everyone at our table was satisfied and happy. The fish, pizza, pasta and dessert were all delicious. It is run by a family who are very friendly. The staff and service were all excellent too.

We stumbled on this restaurant on our first night staying near to amalfi - after treading in some doggy doo whilst admiring the view and slightly put off by the lurid green sign......however the food was EXACTLY what we wanted - delicious traditional Italian food with an excellent bottle of wine and good value for money. We went back again... More

We found this amazing restaurant at the end of our holiday, which is a shame as we would have eaten here much more. The food was excellent and service also brilliant. My dad ordered steak when it came it was huge he said it was the best steak he'd ever had in his life - and he has eaten lots... More

Staying locally we went here for dinner. The people were very friendly! We were shown the very fresh fish of the day and were recommended one which we tried, so glad we did it was the best fish we have ever had with local wine which was about €6.50 and had pasta as a starter. I would highly recommend this... More

While in Amalfi we decided to take a cooking class. La Carcara was a great find for this venture. It's a family run restaurant with first class food and a chef who takes pride in everything he does. We met Gino and his wife Lucia, who greeted us like family. The next few hours were spent making a fantastic meal,... More

This was one of the best things we did while in Italy. Gino the chef came in his car to collect us. We arrived... More

This is my second trip to Italy and I will return here one day. I am an Aussie chef and I did a cooking lesson here. I would love to do more. Was amazing. So fresh, so good, so friendly. Beyond expectations!
