My husband and I spent almost a month touring Italy on our honeymoon and we spent a couple of nights at Amalfi. We had dinner at La Caravella 1 night as recommended by our hotel and also upon reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. We walked into La Caravella with no expectations whatsoever! To sum it all up - the food... More

We were in Amalfi on a cruise and La Caravella was recommended to us, so we went for dinner. What a wonderful meal we had! The service was very attentive and the food delicious. They have a very extensive wine list as well. They made our salad table side and we shared a pasta dish, which was plenty of food... More

While ingredients are fresh, and the menu somewhat innovative. And service is friendly and responsive. Extremely high prices which of course raises the diner's expectations. Alas very very disappointing

We arrived just before closing time on a Sunday lunchtime, hot and bothered after a boat trip to Positano. Half expected to be turned away when we asked if it was still possible to have a light lunch, but quite the reverse! We were looked after extremely well and had an amazing lunch - set menu with lots of exciting... More

Ate there with my wife and daugter. The setting was beautiful, on an alley off the beach. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. There is a ceramic shop and wine store associated with the restaurant, but no pressure to buy. The help is so friendly that we got a tour of the kitchen, that included a... More

This is an elegant restaurant with a very attentive professional staff. It is expensive, but sometimes you deserve a treat. The food was excellent, one of the best meals I have had in years.

Very good cuisine and a nice range of options in pleasent surroundings? Access to the restaurant is from a very busy main road into Amalfi but once there we were not disappointed.

La Caavella serves outstanding food and should be awarded one Michelin star right now! The decor is somehow has been and that could put you off but he service is perfect and the food is by far the best I have experienced on the Amalfi coast and prbably in Italy! A must in Amalfi, unmissable!

This is a "must" restaurant in Amalfi! Great food and great wine list! If you love seafood, you'll love La Caravella. Friendly staff.

If you are ever in Amalfi, this restaurant is a must. It's a beautifully decorated building, the service is impeccable. We decided to opt for the tasting menu and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely beautiful. We were also impressed with the other choice of dishes on the menu all being sourced locally. It was also a pleasure... More
