“Good food away from the tourist rush”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We tried this place out of curiousity and were pleasantly surprised. The pizza's are very good, the place has a nice, local atmosphere to it and it's also better value than places in the center of Amalfi (that is, of course, because you have to drive half an hour all the way up the winding road).

“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!
