“Fresh local delight”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed everything about our lunch at La Carcara. We called ahead and they even stayed open for our late arrival at 3:30. It was well worth the bus ride from Ravello via Amalfi. Fresh fish of the day grilled with lemon was perfect, as were the spaghetti with sweet tomatoes and olives and the delicious salad with tomatoes and mozzarella. Each dish was flavorful and beautifully prepared. Umberto the welcoming waiter provided exceptional service and helpful menu suggestions. We have been dining out for 3 weeks in Italy and our lunch at La Carcara was among the most satisfying and delicious meals yet.

“Good food away from the tourist rush”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We tried this place out of curiousity and were pleasantly surprised. The pizza's are very good, the place has a nice, local atmosphere to it and it's also better value than places in the center of Amalfi (that is, of course, because you have to drive half an hour all the way up the winding road).

“Unexpected pleasure”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We visited La Carcara for the first time this year. Its entrance is not at all attractive, but once you are there the setting and firendly service are great. Wonderfully cooked fresh fish (especially lemon sauce!).

Lucia, Gino and Fabio are so friendly. Popped in for a look. No problem - even gave us coffees with no charge. Then when for a meal - excellent and lovely views.

“Homemade quality”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

This place has excellent quality food, made themselves and with a local touch with Italian love for what they serve. We went there on the last night in Amalfi and wish we had gone earlier. I'm Italian and have grown up with Italian food and these guys made it just right!

Recommend eating there or even take away, it's cheap, top quality and very hospitable !
