Our party of three had an absolutely superb dinner. We went for the first time this past Tuesday, and intend to become regular diners from now on. Every single dish was fabulous--eggplant parmesan, mussels with fettuccini, chicken saltimbocca. The pasta and bread are all house-made, and the ingredients are all locally sourced. This restaurant serves up old-fashioned quality, with a... More

We happened upon this hidden gem while making our way to Tennessee from New Jersey. We were a little under dressed but it didn't matter. Our server, Sheila, was outstanding. The food was great! I was even able to get gluten free pasta. It put me in mind of The Ravioli House in Wildwood. Thank you so much a delightful... More

I think that I first came to Amalfi when it was brand new over 40 years ago. It has not changed as far as quality and fun. There is enough variety that everyone will find something they like. From fresh healthy dishes to the fried stuff that some people like, it does well. The best of the best is that... More

Up until now, I loved this restaurant. One of the sons is gregarious when taking reservations. Inexplicably, when a huge (larger than a silver dollar including legs) spider crawls onto your table, HE DID NOT DO ANYTHING BUT LAUGH IT OFF. Of course I could not finish my dinner - I could not even open my replacement napkin, and nobody... More

I'd like to thank you for your continued business and I'd like to apologize for your previous visit. I'm sorry you thought I just laughed it off but what was I supposed to do? We took care of the spider almost instantaneously and yes I laughed because that is my personality. The spider was gone and the situation was handled... More

I grew up eating Amalfi's white pizza and shrimp Parm. It's been 10 years since I last went and I'm happy to say that it's better than ever.

We went here with some friends and had a wonderful meal. The beef bologanese was awesome, the gnocchi was some of the best I've had in a long time, and the tiramisu was delicious! Someone else in our party had the special that evening that was a pesto pasta with pistachio and it was really really good. The service was... More

From the outside, Amalfi looks like an unprepossessing industrial park sort of place. inside, the dining room(s) are surprisingly airy, pleasant and quiet. The menu is standard Italian. The complimentary bread was neither wonderful nor bad; my wife and I split the fennel salad (good ingredients but not dynamic or tasty) and a sea bass special (the fish was well-cooked... More

My husband and I travel for business all year and finding good food is so difficult . We came back a second time because this wasn't just an establishment that had been around for many years with real Italian dishes , it was more. The chicken is local and free range! We found delicious modern Italian! Our waitress was great... More

First, I'd like to apologize about the hair. I'm sorry you thought I was blaming you both for the hair but I wasn't. I was simply noting that it was improbable that it came from our staff. It was a long blonde hair and all of our staff had short black or brown hair. I was simply in shock that... More

This is a very good restaurant, We had Sea Bass with lemon caper sauce and pasta. The fish was great and the pasta was cooked and sauced perfectly. I would definitely go back and would definitely recommend this restaurant to others (I am now.) It is a little hard to find.

I've been going to Amalfi since I was an infant and my parents have been going since they were dating. I try and go here at least a few times a year, usually for celebrations or just a nice change of pace for dining. The food is great and only seems to get better as they make the slightest changes...

Description
Established in 1977 Amalfi is a True Family Owned & Operated Restaurant. We offer dishes from both northern and southern Italy. We also have extensive Gluten Free and Vegetarian options along with a few Vegan options as well. With everything being made from scratch to order we can please any customer. We take pride in doing all the work ourselves and strive to have the very best restaurant in town. Moe Jr. is the head chef, John serves tables, Teresa hosts and Moe Sr. overlooks the operation. Moe Sr. and Teresa started Amalfi over 36 years ago and now the two sons are in control and have taken Amalfi to the next level. We have now upgraded all of our meats to all natural products. From all natural chicken to milk fed veal, even our sausage is all natural. The majority of our meals are now made to order to ensure optimal freshness and quality. Come in and see why they say, "Once you visit Amalfi you may never leave!"
