“Unexpected pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We visited La Carcara for the first time this year. Its entrance is not at all attractive, but once you are there the setting and firendly service are great. Wonderfully cooked fresh fish (especially lemon sauce!).

“SO friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Lucia, Gino and Fabio are so friendly. Popped in for a look. No problem - even gave us coffees with no charge. Then when for a meal - excellent and lovely views.

“Homemade quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

This place has excellent quality food, made themselves and with a local touch with Italian love for what they serve. We went there on the last night in Amalfi and wish we had gone earlier. I'm Italian and have grown up with Italian food and these guys made it just right!

Recommend eating there or even take away, it's cheap, top quality and very hospitable !

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is probably one of the best Italian meals I have ever had! We visited this restaurant while in Amalfie for a week. The food was excellent and so was the service. Having dinner at Lucia's place was like being with family. The fresh fish of the day and pasta were always exceptional. Let's not mention the awesome pizza or Lucia's famous Limoncello that she makes herself with the lemons from her garden.

Great Service, Great food....wonderful people. A definite must in Amalfie!

“Best fish ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went to this restaurant during our honeymoon. Very reasonably priced, great service and really tasty! The waiter bought a plate of fish out, caught fresh that morning, and asked us which we would prefer. It was the best fish I have ever tasted! The waiter was extremely friendly and very helpful. I would recommend visiting this place.
