“La Capanninna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

we came here three times when we were on holiday in Amalfi, ver friendly people, u feel directly at home, and excellent food for a correct price! We even had the chance to buy excellent Olive oil, still enjoying it every day,
So i would recommend it to everyone. And, they even come and pick u up for free if u would be in Amalfi...
Hoping to go there as quickly as possible

“average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I dont understand the reviews. I read about this restaurant, how excelent it is, and came to eat here. I was very desepointed. The food was averege minus. We had the antipasti that was ok, seafood spagetti - averege, mixed fish - ok minus, sword fish - very poor. The desert was not eatable - chokolad cake that was baked i think last week - dry and hard. I dont understand how you can serve a cack like this, even in an averge restaurant !

Have been here a few times and it's always wonderful. Sit in the main room not downstairs. Different atmosphere.

“A real treat off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Thanks to an encounter on the beach in Amalfi my friends and I found La Capannina -- in the hills above the village -- and enjoyed a truly wonderful meal.

Chef Carlo offered no menus but created a feast that was served family style. The courses included a plate of ham, salami and bacon, mozzarella and other cheeses, along with honey and jam, and vegetables. We were treated to an assortment of grilled meat.

Our dessert — a regional confection known as baba, small rum-soaked pear-shaped cakes, was unforgettable. We also had cheesecake with pears.

Eating here felt like we were eating at someone's home - comforting food and company.

“Here you find the best food in Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

A group of us came here for a lunch during the vespa tour with “NapolinVespa” and were very impressed. It is a beautiful panoramic place, somewhat hidden away with a great selection of food and fresh ingredients. The staff was very attentive and seemed to know our meeting was important and did not rush us or bother us anymore than necessary. There is also a great wine selection. Highly recommended!
