With one Michelin star, high standard should be expected. And the food was great. We chose a la carte, and all the dishes were beautiful to look at and great taste. The service was effective and correct, but not very friendly. The wine list was extensive, but we chose a tasting of white Italian organic wines, which were both interesting... More

The service was excellent with the waiter patiently explaining the local specialities we were served. Fabulous food and wine in a relaxed atmosphere with very attentive staff. We very much enjoyed our evening. It is very pricey but if you enjoy... More

We were there just before the Easter season and had the place almost to ourselves. The food was superb: elegant and perfectly executed while still retaining strong character and flavor: something I have found is rare in one and two- Michelin-star aspirants and holders. The setting and service were professional and charming. A wonderful high-end value.

La Caravella richly deserves its Michelin star. My overriding impression is of absolute genius in turning authentic simple southern italian flavours into elegant innovative creations. Our selections retained the pleasures of the local cuisine without contrived , pretentious excesses yet fully succeeding in presenting a sophisticated menu with subtle and delicate plays of flavours. Excellent friendly service made the evening... More

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.

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

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.
