Excellent food and service

This is the place for fresh seafood. Marvellous fried anchovies, very good spaghetti all vongole, perfectly grilled swordfish. A comprehensive wine list with reasonable prices. The helpings are very generous, so unless you're starving, one dish will suffice. Main-dishes around €20.

By now, we get kisses hello when we go there. And Dino, the chef, keeps getting better and better. You can get spaghetti con vongole practically anywhere, even just down the block and by the sea... Forget it. This one is so fine, so expertly balanced, you just know love is in this plate! Same with the tuna tartare, or... More

They have a great selection of fish based dishes. I have been there several times and the food is always excellent. We had Samuel as a waitor and he was very helpful and attentive to all our needs. Strongly recommended

The ambience of the place is stylish, great for a date or a celebration. I had the antipasti misti di pesce - phenomenal! Then I tried the sautéed tuna with sweet and sour onions that - while a little bit... More

"La Caravella" is an institution in Ventimiglia since 3 decades. A few years ago it was taken over. Would it still be as good ? Well we had lunch today and found it even better. The chef Dino who is also the owner made for us a Fritto Misto di Pesce which was fabulous. Followed by Spaghetti ai Funghi Porcini... More

We started going to La Caravella about thirty years ago and have followed it through various vicissitudes, but have always found it of superior quality both service and foodwise. Children are welcome and their choice is brought promptly. The present owner is Italo-Scot and very pleasant; his menu is interesting adn the prices not too high.
