“Beautiful food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We were in Amalfi on a cruise and La Caravella was recommended to us, so we went for dinner. What a wonderful meal we had! The service was very attentive and the food delicious. They have a very extensive wine list as well. They made our salad table side and we shared a pasta dish, which was plenty of food for us. For dessert we had the lemon soufflé. It was huge and amazing!! More than enough to share.
It was a memorable night and we enjoyed it tremendously.

“Over priced under delivered”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

While ingredients are fresh, and the menu somewhat innovative. And service is friendly and responsive. Extremely high prices which of course raises the diner's expectations. Alas very very disappointing

“Very special place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We arrived just before closing time on a Sunday lunchtime, hot and bothered after a boat trip to Positano. Half expected to be turned away when we asked if it was still possible to have a light lunch, but quite the reverse! We were looked after extremely well and had an amazing lunch - set menu with lots of exciting flavours - fish, veg and meat, good small portions to allow us to try more, finished off with semifreddo and coffee. Very reasonable price for what we had, and good local wine. It looks a bit dull from the outside, but the inside is beautifully done, with pieces of glass and their own ceramic works' products (discount offered for visitors to the shop). Good humour well after they should all have been home putting their feet up.

“Gourmet Dining in Amalfi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Ate there with my wife and daugter. The setting was beautiful, on an alley off the beach. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding. There is a ceramic shop and wine store associated with the restaurant, but no pressure to buy. The help is so friendly that we got a tour of the kitchen, that included a photo with the staff!

“Elegant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This is an elegant restaurant with a very attentive professional staff. It is expensive, but sometimes you deserve a treat. The food was excellent, one of the best meals I have had in years.
