We are here every night which was close and easy as we stayed in Pogerola and loved our week here in this gorgeous town with amazing views and 20min bus drive down to the Amalfi beach.

They had the best pizzas in all of Italy!! Wood fired oven and fresh dough and toppings!! Amazing!! So cheap too and a family run restaurant!

The 'Tri colore' salad was great with a yummy feta!

Great pasta!! We would stay here in Pogerola and come here again and again!!
Wonderful food and service

While in Amalfi we decided to take a cooking class. La Carcara was a great find for this venture. It's a family run restaurant with first class food and a chef who takes pride in everything he does. We met Gino and his wife Lucia, who greeted us like family. The next few hours were spent making a fantastic meal, from appetizers to dessert. If you are looking for an authentic Italian cooking class, without spending the entire day doing so, this is the place.

When we arrived at our hotel - Grand Excelsior, we saw an ad on the noticeboard about a local cooking class. There were numerous positive comments written on the ad, so we decided to book in. This was one of the best things we did while in Italy. Gino the chef came in his car to collect us. We arrived at the restaurant and were welcomed by his wife Lucia. We then took part in preparing a wonderful meal while Lucia insisted on us taking notes so we could try the recipes when we returned home. There were four courses which were all beautiful. Following preparation, we sat down to enjoy the food with some nice wine. By the end of the meal, we felt like part of the family. Don't miss this if you are in the area. Thank you Gino and Lucia.

This is my second trip to Italy and I will return here one day. I am an Aussie chef and I did a cooking lesson here. I would love to do more. Was amazing. So fresh, so good, so friendly. Beyond expectations!

We were picked up at our apartment in Conca a very pleasant surprise that they would come and get us from outside Amalfi. On arrival, we were really well looked after by Umberto and the rest of the team and the food, wine and atmosphere made for a great evening. Good value topped off by a lift back to our apartment. Everyone, including the pizza chef who was our chauffeur for the night, was friendly, efficient and welcoming. Many thanks.
