Naples and Campania Restaurants



La Caravella

La Caravella Review

No wonder this is considered the most romantic restaurant in Amalfi, with lace-covered tables, ciuccio (donkey) ceramics, tall candles, and fresh floral bouquets in salons graced with frescoes and marble floors. Opened in 1959, it became the first in Southern Italy to earn a Michelin star in 1966, and once drew a gilded guest list that included such fans as Andy Warhol and Federico Fellini. The menu maintains dishes favored 50 years ago: picture slices of fish grilled in lemon leaves marinated with an almond and wild fennel sauce. A tasting menu is available, but don't miss the antipasti.
