“Delicious Dinners, Wonderful Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

During our stay at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, we walked up to this charming village for dinner at La Carcara two times. We were warmly greeted and seated on the patio by a very nice young man - we had a beautiful view of the mountains and Ravello to the northeast. Fresh seafood was presented and something similar to seabass was chosen, in addition to lemon pork scallopini - both were delicious. It was a spectacular meal from appetizers to dessert, including very good house wine and complementary lemoncello. Such wonderful service by Lucy and staff. The second time dining, we chose homemade pasta dishes which were equally delicious and brought some friends along who all enjoyed their meals as well. We were fortunate to chose a night where there was folk dancing in the square in front of the church and organized childrens games going on - a very special treat! What a beautiful town and enjoyable evening.

Lovely food in à little town pogerola, we went with our friends from amalfi ( we ask them to reservate a typical restaurant for this area) so they brought us here. First we eat the pasta vongole ( fresh) very nice and then we eat a big pizza (4 kinds of pizza In one cut in slices) very lovely. And really cheap. I'll come back

“Frutti di mare più fresco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2012

We stayed in Pogerola for a week in October 2011 and ate at this restaurant 3 nights. The seafood, which we had every night, was beautifully fresh. The proprietor (Lucia?) brought a platter of whole fish each night from which we could select our dinner. The appetizers, salads, and desserts were equally satisfying. We appreciated the limoncello (or strawberry version) that they offered as a complimentary digestif. A very nice little restaurant run by a charming family!
