Very friendly, great views - and gave us free extras. The staff were very welcoming and grow most of the produce themselves.

“Jamie Oliver needs to come here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

This is simply the best on the hillside of Amalfi. My family (me, my wife and now grown kids) have been coming here for 30 years. Domenico and his fantastically talented chef wife, deliver quite the most superb food you could ever want. You have to understand what to ask for. The two top subjects are the antipasto misto - ask for 'verdure miste' and then the choice of pizze. They are all good. Usually, the simpler and more local, the better. E.g. Napolitana, primavera, arrotalata. At the end of the meal, don't ask for limoncello, ask for finocchietto. That will correctly blow your mind and steady you for the trip home. Oh, by the way, your view is of Ravello and the sensational mountains above - which you can walk around, if you have the cogliones.

“In my 2 week stay in Amalfi this was the only place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

where i decided to go for meat - lamb chops (carre d'agneau). we had a lengthy ( and pleasant to me) discussion with the restaurant owner on the origins of the meat, and what side dish should accompany it. The choice was very right . M eat was juicy, tasty and prepared to the right point . Fish pasta dish - another of our orders - fusilli with fish and lemon - was really a revelation - different from lemon pastas we tasted in other places.

For dessert - they offered local fruits ( not to miss - great figues) and fondant au chocolat ..

Restaurant menu is very reasonably priced (11, i recall euros for my agnello!!), and as many times mentioned in reviews, has a clear emphasis on local products ( for example. rucola ( rocket salad) is wild grown, and other salads - from owner's brother garden.

so basically, when you are tired from amalfi and other seashore villages restaurants, serving so so food at exorbitant prices - Capannina is a nice choice indeed.

“Best pizza ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Simply put there pizza is outstanding. We were looking for a restaurant with a real wood oven pizza and a small walk from our hotel we found La Capannia. Simply put this was the best pizza i have ever had in the 50 years. I cant speek to the rest of the menue , but if you want a home made authentic Italian pizza this is the place to go!! Great service and view too but its all about the pizza!!!!

“Gem of Pergerola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

La Capannina is a family run restaurant that takes pride in the freshness of the local food. All vegetables are grown in their garden and all the ingredients are local. The owner went above and beyond to ensure our experience was welcoming and treated us like we were family. The view was a spectacular panorama of Ravello.The homemade deserts are the best in Italy. If you are looking for a true local experience and want to escape the tourist madness of Amalfi,this is the place to go. Excellent!
