Beautifully decorated restaurant with local glass and ceramics. We selected the €50 four course set lunch menu. Courses were based on local fresh ingredients. Enjoyed each dish and presentation was good. Wine list was extensive, especially local wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed this place, it deserves its one Michelin star. For starters we had squid ink ravioli stuffed with ricotta and lobster with baby squid and a tasty broth and minced fish stuffed in lemon leaves and grilled, both delicious. Mains were also good stuffed squid and grandmothers minced chicken in lemon leaves. Next was a refreshing quenelle of... More

My wife and I returned to La Caravella for the second time in recent years to celebrate our anniversary. Reading some of the other comments, don't be put off by the lack of outdoor tables, and quite honestly we have never experienced anything but exceptional service. The owner generally operates with enthusiasm and passion as the maitre d' as well... More

From the rude maitre"d to the really average food - this is a classic example of a misguided Michelin star. Having tried similar ranked restaurants in Paris / NYC / Singapore / Tokyo this is supremely not up to par. The food was lacklustre , the service appalling and the general atmosphere so underwhelming. Why Michelin would even rate this... More

I have tried multiple Michilen star restaurants and to be frank, La Caravella falls wide off the mark. Granted the atmosphere was romantic, however, the food was average while the place lacks any of the beautiful surrounding views of Amalfi.

A luxury restaurant with very good service and good meals. Unfortunately there is not outside tables, that is important for the summer. The selection of wines and beers is very good. The food is tasty, the service is friendly. Very good desserts.

Ok, it's fancy and expensive. The food was good but not great. The service was spotty, people who didn't order starters got their main dish while others were on their salads. It's quiet, very brightly lit. Stuffy. Really just an ok spot. So many better places for 1/2 the price.

Michelin Star should be removed, just not up to their standard. The meal began with crudo and steamed shrimp, very nice........but then went downhill with a white fish I could have prepared better, followed by a tough soufflé..........couldn't leave the restaurant quick enough to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Amalfi............. there are many better restaurants nearby.............
