Fodor's Expert Review La Caravella

$$$$ Amalfi Italian
Opened in 1959 and southern Italy's first restaurant to earn a Michelin star (in 1966), this atmospheric place—graced with frescoes, marble floors, vibrant ceramics, and fresh flowers—once had a gilded guest list that included 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; there's also a tasting menu, but don't miss the antipasti.
