My wife and I shared a gnocchi with pesto and Parmesan which was beautiful. My wife had th calamari with sun dried tomatoes which she enjoyed. We were told that all of the seafood was fresh. I had th lamb chops which were actually what we in Australia call forequarter chops; they were OK.

This restaurant should be packed from the time it opens until it is closed. The food is exceptional and the service outstanding. We ate here two of the four nights we stayed in Pogerola and continue to talk about our experience. The owner waited on us the first night and answered all of our questions, ensuring we understood what we... More

The only thing that keeps me from giving them a "5" is that the timing of service was a little off. Was surprised to get a amuse bouche for lunch - zucchini flower. The spaghetti with prawn appetizer was outstanding as was the steak with arugula and Parmesan. They have a good wine list, a very spacious dining area and... More

We stopped in here at about 2:30 after a long walk through the vallies. Although they were no longer serving hot food, we had the most wonderful antipasti dishes I have ever had. The cheeses, honey, ham, parma ham, tomatoes, home made preserves were all delicious and were made all the more delightful by sitting on a small balcony overlooking... More

We got the Sita bus up from Amalfi to Pogerola after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. The restaurant has superb views- but unfortunately it was dark when we went. La Capannina is beautifully set out with tables well spaced and tablecloths and well turned out waiters. None of this is any use if the food is poor. BUT we could not... More

I read the reviews about this restaurant and telephoned. Dominco, the owner, came to collect us from our hotel. The meal was superb. We shared a starter of fusilli with clams and courgettes. The main meal was sea bream cooked to perfection. Everything was very fresh and served with such pride and friendliness. A great deal of thought had gone... More

this could be a secret to unveil. Take the car or taxi from any hotel in and around Amalfi and drive up there to this ancient village in the mountain and have Lunch or dinner. Domenico and Angela, the owners will take good care of you. Vegetables and herbs grow right outside the restaurant windows and Domenico goes daily to... More

We had an amazing dinner there during our stay in August. Fresh delicious food and excellent service. The restaurant even picked us up from our hotel for free. Prices are around half of what you pay down at the marina. I can only advice everybody to stay clear of the tourist restaurants at the marina and go up the mountains... More

the restaurant sent a driver to pick us up as we were staying in Amalfi and it was about a 10 minute drive up the hills. The restaurant is very local, so don't expect anything fancy or fine dining, but do expect local cuisine done to perfection. No tourist trap here, all home cooked amazing food. we had the veal...

We are staying in the village and there are four places to eat. I didn't read any reviews but have now eaten here twice. The food is exceptional, I had the risotto and was going to have it again the second time but decided to have pasta with lobster sauce, it was just as good if not better. The lemon... More
