We chance upon this place while walking the street.... almost at the end of the main town (next to a huge building- bank). We had the calamari and mussels - both very good and delicious, cost about 30euros with water and coffee. Decided to come back again for dinner since the food prices were decent in a very expensive town.... More

We had lunch here twice and enjoyed it both times. Spaghetti a la carbonara and Vegetarian Pizza were our meals the first day. Lasagna and eggplant parmesan were our choices the second day. No complaints at all, tasty fare each time. It was fun to watch the kids help what must have been their parents manage the restaurant.

The prices are reasonable for amalfi. E.g. 10euro for pasta dish. We really enjoyed our meal. Rum baba was fab.

Great food recommended to us and did not disappoint. That said service was lacklustre at best maybe even rude. But don't let that put you off

We enjoyed pizza on our first visit to Amalfi. Was looking for a quick place to eat while walking through the Amalfi streets in the evening. This place fit the bill perfectly.

In Amalfi it is hard to find a quiet reasonably priced restaurant, but you don't want to come here. The service is terrible. The waiter was rude and unatentive. The food was incredibly overpriced and in poor quality. The pasta was bland, overcooked and full of oil in a bad way. We left hungry and we paid much too much... More

We spent a week in Amalfi and ate in several restaurants recommended to us by our lovely hotel, Villa Lara. Cartari didn't disappoint. We ate here twice as the first time was so good. The cooks are clearly very talented and the food looks and tastes like home cooking. The plates the food was served on were beautiful too. From... More

Amalfi is full of somewhat bogus restaurants boasting 'authentic' this and that. This place was the real deal. Small, slow, careful. The food was absolutely delicious - the best I had on my 5 day trip to Naples and Amalfi. Just a simple dish of tomato salad was lip smackingly good. The spaghetti with olives and clams wonderful too. Please... More
