La Carcara is the best restaurant Amalfi (Pogerola) has to offer. My husband and I ate there two nights in a row because we loved the food, atmosphere, and perhaps most importantly, the staff. Our first night, we checked-in to our hotel at 11:30 pm – and we were starving! One of the staff told us to sit tight, and he would call La Carcara and have someone pick us up. Within 10 minutes, one of the restaurant staff were at our hotel and drove us 5 minutes up the road to the restaurant. We were greeted by Lucia – one of the most wonderful people you’ll ever meet! She and her husband own the restaurant. They do a fantastic job at making each guest feel special, and take pride in the meals they cook for you. The food is simple, fresh, and delicious. We enjoyed (fresh caught) fish both nights – amazing! The very next day, we were back at the restaurant (once again… very late) and we were greeted with a very warm welcome by Lucia and her husband. Not only did they remember us, but they took the time to help us pick the perfect meal, and have a lovely conversation. Overall, we would highly recommend this restaurant. From the actual town of Amalfi, it is a 15 minute drive. From our hotel (Excelsior Grand) it was a 5 minute drive a little further up the mountain. The atmosphere is wonderful – warm, rustic, and genuine Italian. The food is delicious and not pretentious. And the staff – they make they experience really special. Thank you Lucia for beautiful meals and for being a part of our Wedding Anniversary!
