La Caravella

12 Via Matteo Camera
Amalfi , Italy http://www.ristorantelacaravella.it/
39 089 871-029

Don’t be fooled by the entrance, under a tunnel along the main coastal road: La Caravella has been one of the area’s finest restaurants for nearly 50 years, a required culinary stop since Federico Fellini, Andy Warhol, and Jackie Kennedy put it on the map in the 1960s. It remains a stalwart fixture on the dining scene for its romantic interior—the wall niches serve as a gallery of fine Vietri ceramic art dating back to the 19th century; highly regarded wine cellar (nearly 2,000 bottles strong); and chef Antonio Dipino’s innovative touches on local specialties. The fish comes enveloped in a veil of lemon sauce, and ricotta and squid are stuffed into panzerottini neri (squid-ink pasta pockets). The legendary lemon soufflé is the best note to end on.
