Only a 20% occipied and hence no atmosphere more like a wake.
The food had no taste (pasta / lemonn / garlic(forgot to put the garlic in) and scampi (aka small inedible crayfish)
For main Veal - raw and bleed into plate - no vegetables and just a few fries - (extra charge)
not worth the effort to visit and the staff were not particulalrly friendly and our custom appreciated

Although shown as being in "Amalfi" this restaurant is actually in Pogerola. about 3 km up into the mountains. Pogerola is a v small village with few / no tourists (i liked that). The restaurant appears to be family run, great local food and because it isnt "dtrip front" is was very good value. Views are of mountains and valleys, no sea view.

During the morning in the kitchen at La Capannina the two chefs let us assist in the preparation of some authentic local dishes served in the retaurant. Afterwards we ate the food we had cooked accompanied by wine, coffee and limoncello and a magnificaent view over the hills towards Ravello. The family were charming and the experience memorable.

We LOVED the food, service and "just like home" atmosphere. We loved everything we ate, especially the home made pasta and the prices were very reasonable. You have to to try this place!!
