Amalfi Restaurants

There are quite a few wonderful Amalfi restaurants. Here are a few of my personal favorites!!

La Cambus

This is a small caf`e and snack bar that has sandwiches, cappuccino and finger foods. it is open year round.

La Pansa

This is a wonderful caf`e on the main piazza. It has been in the Pansa family for 5 generations. This caf`e is known for its decadent desserts. Did I mention I love Desserts??

Trattoria san Giuseppe

This is tucked away under an arch in one of Amalfi's alleyways. You might detect a slight smell from the antique drains but you can move inside if that happens. They have outside tables to people watch. They have the best pizza here. Make sure you try it before leaving Amalfi.

La Taverna del Duca

La Taverna del Duca is a recently established restaurant, its cuisine is traditional and refined at the same time. The restaurant is a great place for a nice dinner with friends, a family meal, or a romantic dinner, thanks to its great friendly service.

La Taverna is gifted with a wide dining room, and with a very characteristic terrace. Both are perfect places to enjoy the restaurant's specialties in every season.

La Taverna produces all types of fresh handmade pasta, and bread, and is specialized in lobster dishes and traditional Amalfi recipes. The wide choice of wines, and delicious desserts is also very noticeable and affordable.

La Caravella

The stone building containing this restaurant was a boatyard and marine warehouse during the 1400s. Today, it's one of the most prominent restaurants in town, with a menu featuring authentic Italian specialties. Examples are spaghetti Caravella with seafood sauce and fresh fish with lemon. An even better option is scialatielli (wide noodles) with a ragout of shellfish. Grilled fish is also baked in a salt crust to keep the full flavor inside. Scaloppine alla Caravella (veal) is served with a tangy clam sauce, and a healthy portion of zuppa di pesce is ladled out. You can have a platter of the mixed fish fry, with crisp bits of shrimp and squid, followed by a lemon soufflé.

The picture above is from La Caravella Restaurant. This is one of my top picks.

Da Gemma

(Via Fra' Gerardo Sasso 10) with its terrace facing the cathedral's piazza. Try the ziti, the traditional unevenly-formed hand made pasta typical of the area, or the fried fish.
