We were so surprised to find this little gem of a Restaurant when friends suggested we had lunch there after our regular visit to the Ventimiglia old fashioned vegetable & food market. We thought we knew every corner of this town, and have passed La Caravella many times - and here we were having delicious fresh artichoke & squid salad... More

We discovered La Caravella this winter when we were visiting the new marina development in Ventimiglia. Good location below the Old City which is very interesting to explore. As part of the new marina development they are planning an elevator from the seaside up to the Old Town. The fish at the Caravella was the freshest I have ever seen... More

This restaurant has a good position, although it is not actually on the seafront. The choice of food is wide enough to be attractive to most tastes, and not so vast as to make one suspect its freshness. The dishes have recognisable ingredients but with variations that make them even more enjoyable. The wine is also very potable. The only... More

We attended the 2016 Monaco Grand Prix and Ristorante La Caravella was close to our hotel. Three (foodie) friends walked in on a busy night and the only table left was in a back dining room. Unfortunately we did not speak Italian and our first two waiters could not completely translate the extensive specials board (they tried!). They said they... More

Didn't realize it was a high end expensive restaurant. My wife and I shared a mixed salad and we each had spaghetti with seafood and a half a bottle of wine. The bill was 70 euros which I thought a bit high for Ventimiglia. However, the food was excellent--pasta al dente full of many types of seafood including clams, octopus,... More

We have been at this restaurant before and had a great diner at the time so we went back. Last night it appaered to be a very high price for the offering and quality was poor! We took the mixed fish main course. Each of us had 1 gamba, 2 small langoustilles, two small pieces of squid and half a... More

The food is excellent for those who like fresh fish, a wine cellar enviable, the service is done professionally by three friendly guys. Dino, the chef, is a character partricolare, friendly and competent. Prices are in line with the quality and freshness of the products.

We headed to this restaurant on a sunny day, attracted by some of the reviews seen on TA. Several of them were describing a nice location by the sea, so our first disappointment was to find out that a street is in between the restaurant and the beach and that, once seated, all what we would have been able to...

Ventimiglia is a delightful friendly small town. La Caravella is in a lovely location. The food yesterday was excellent but the sevice very slow and the waiters unattentive. A young Italian couple spent sometime studying the menu outside and, no doubt, the prices but they took the plunge and came in They were virtually ignored (deliberately?)by the waiters and after...
