In a small town like Amalfi, it goes without saying that the only cuisine you'll find is Italian. There are restaurants, however, where you'll find a greater attention paid to local specialties - either in their traditional form or in new and inventive ways. The typical cuisine of the Amalfi Coast has been heavily influenced by "la cucina napoletana," the cooking traditions of nearby Naples. You'll find traditional dishes, such as spaghetti con le vongole (spaghetti with clams) served at just about every restaurant in the area. And you can also rest assured that when you order a pizza on the Amalfi Coast that you'll be getting the delicious Neapolitan style pizza.
Yet, the Amalfi Coast also has many of its own special touches, which you'll find well preserved and presented with care and creativity at these restaurants. Ristorante Marina Grande overlooking Amalfi's pretty beach serves local specialties with an original flair.
At Ristorante A' Paranza in Atrani, you'll find some of the specialties unique to Atrani served with attention to detail. At Maccus in Amalfi particular attention is paid to foods represented in the Slow Food Presidia, such as sfusato amalfitano
lemon , gamberetti di nassa
, colatura di alici
traditional of Cetara, provolone del monaco
cheese and many more.
To really taste the traditions of the Amalfi Coast, you'll want to try some home cooked style dishes like you'll find at La Galea Ristorante e Pizzeria. If your taste buds are calling out for a Neapolitan style pizza, often considered the best in Italy, stop by one of the many restaurants that serve up great pizza, such as Donna Stella in Amalfi and Ristorante Le Arcate in Atrani.
