Great selection of pizzas and wines.They have fresh seafood as well and you can choose as they bring the fish to the table. Old you get a complementary shot of limoncello at the end of your... More

On one of our last days in Amalfi, my family and friends took a lunch cooking class with Lucia and her husband Gino. As far as the food goes, I watched amazed at how such simple ingredients, so unassuming were turned into one of the most beautifully plated meals I have ever seen. Lucia was making fun of my brother-in-law... More

The food was perfect, fresh, simple and absolutely delicious. My 10 year old son ate the mussels and clams (the highest praise from a picky kid eater) The owners were warm, welcoming and as gracious as can be. Last but in no way least, the views were spectacular and the setting enchanting.

Our experience at La Carcara was incredible from start to finish. We are staying at a hotel in Amalfi and wanted something quick but good on a Saturday evening. Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint. To start, they actually drove to my hotel to pick up my mother and I to take us to the restaurant... More

The local people in the village are friendly, the service is attentive and the food lovely. Fish is caught daily and was presented to us on each occasion so we could pick what... More

My mother used to drag me to this place every night years ago..when we had to walk 3 miles and 45 degrees North..Thank you Mum. Pogerola, on the Amalfi coast is full of people that make you feel welcome, make you feel happy and tell you the best stories. Now my kids moan at me for dragging them there. But... More

We were recommended this restaurant and arrived there expecting something above average. I would truly like to say something nice but our experience was not a good one. The only saving grace was the fresh fish which was beautifully cooked (but by the time it was served was cold). The fish alone was 40 euros. Not good value and very... More

We stumbled upon the fact that this restaurant offered cooking classes when looking for somewhere to eat near the villa we were staying at in Amalfi. We did not eat a meal here, other than the amazing one that we cooked at our own personal cooking class! We called the restaurant to ask if we were able to book 4... More

The food was good. I ate there 3 times. The pasta is made in the restaurant and is typical to the area. The eggplant with tomato souce was very good. The fishes were good The lady / owner is a bit pushy and the waiter seems always tired and patientless.
