Every time during our lovely holidays in Amalfi (my husband and I have been there 4 times already) we visit this restaurant. It’s one of the best on the Amalfi coast because of its unique atmosphere including outstanding variations of Italian cuisine (mainly sea food), perfect service and such a marvelous interior decoration. The prices are high but it’s a... More

We went here bc the reviews from various online sources were incredible. We sat down, ordered water and looked at the menu and knew this wasn't for us. The menu was pretty much all seafood. I like seafood, but this seafood was quite exotically prepared and extremely pricey. Their prices were SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER than any other restaurant we visited on... More

We chose the Degustation Menu (including the wine). The restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine at its best. At Euro 160 per head it is not cheap, but it was well worth it. One can choose other Degustation Menus at half this price, but I really recommend the "top of the class" choice that we opted for. It is 9 courses and... More

If someone likes tradition, excellent food and if you think those people that love what they do, and do something with passion, this is the place! The owner, from the third generation of La Caravella, is a gentle and passionate gentleman. He drives you through the history of gastronomy in Campania, the story of the place and his family, and...

One of the best seafood meals we have ever had was in this little restaurant on the road out of the town. Great service with all the extras you would expect from a high end restaurant.

Very attentive yet friendly service, good food and a very well presented dining area. Not very busy but a wet night in town. Extensive wine list. All in all worth a visit if you appreciate quality food.

On a hot, crowded day in Amalfi we had a wonderful lunch at La Caravella, a bit on the expensive side (50 Euros each plus 8.50 Euros cover) but five courses plus wine and water, great service, excellent food, quiet and peaceful -- definitely recommended. We took the waiter's advice about wine and were happy with the results.

Don't be put off by the location - this place is really good! First class tasting menu, with most original fish/seafood dishes and a glass of wine to match the food for each course. The waiter really knew his stuff on both wine and food and took the time to explain it to us carefully in English. A most enjoyable... More

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
