If you are looking for a perfect dinner, You definitely need to visit them! Thanks again for such an amazing time and food, Valerio.More

We were staying very close to this family run restaurant and ended up going two nights. The service was excellent and between the five of us we enjoyed many things on the menu. The food was made with very fresh ingredients and the pizza was...one of the best we had in Italy. Very cozy but not fancy- well worth it for the food!More

We arranged for transportation to eat at La Carcara, a family restaurant, up the hill from where we were staying. We were picked up by a very nice man, who ended up being our waiter as well! The restaurant is humble in appearance, but one...of the BEST meals we had on our stay! The Pasta was cooked to perfection- One dish was with tomato, Olives and capers, the other was with clams- just the best. All the flavors were maximized by the technique used by Chef Rodrigo. We also endulged in the meat course of Pork Scallopini and a sausage dish, again both were outstanding, finished off with a lemon dessert which wasn't picture perfect, but flavor was certainly there. Wines were reasonably priced and driven back down the mountain as well! A memorable evening!More

Staying in the area, we ate here twice. The first time was a late lunch, and we had the patio to ourselves. The second was for a pizza dinner. We ate in the patio again. It was lovely both times. On a hot afternoon the...breeze cools you off; on a September evening it was delightful. Both times, the service was excellent and the food very good. For lunch I had fish, grilled with a lemon sauce. Very tasty! When we ate pizza I ordered one with a smoked cheese, arugula, and tomato. Also good, and good heated up the next day. This is tasty, solid food. Not the most inventive or nouveau nouveau, but flavorful and affordable and comfortable. You can see why it's a favorite among the locals. Recommend. Oh..and the Lemon Spritz!More

We scheduled a cooking class for our family and it was amazing intimate experience. We had the freshest fish and seafood and everything was beyond delicious. The owners treated us like family. It was so good we went back for dinner the same day!!! Highly...recommend!!More

One of Amalfi's best kept secrets. This place is located in Pogerola which is an upper neighbourhood of Amalfi. Their pizza is epic. Their homemade limoncello is the best we've had the pleasure of tasting anywhere in this region. Prices are much more reasonable than...down in Amalfi proper. Frequented by locals. Service impeccable. All you need to know.More

We arrived without reservation on a Friday evening, the terrace was almost full but they accommodated us right away which was quite fine. They have one menu card for dinner courses and another set for pizza's, we ordered from the later along with an excellent...bottle of Mastroberardino and some "aqua minerale". The pizza's were both good, the wine great, as already mentioned and the small terrace quite charming; it was busy and noisy but still pleasant, a good place for to spend the evening in Pogerola.More
