Dining by the harbor on freshly caught seafood from the Mediterranean is one of the top things to do in Amalfi. Nearly all the restaurants you'll visit on the Amalfi Coast will feature many of the area's seafood specialties, but there are some spots where seafood is really done well. Any of the restaurants along the harbor in Amalfi, such as Ristorante Lido Azzurro
and Ristorante Lo Smeraldino
do a fabulous job. Try the classic spaghetti con vongole
(spaghetti with clams) or any of the other creative pasta and seafood options based on the fresh catch of the day.
While dining by the seaside has an undeniable romance, if you're looking for seafood prepared in the local Amalfi tradition, you'll want to visit the Trattoria Dei Cartari
located near the pretty Piazza dello Spirito Santo near the top of Amalfi. The chefs here have a find touch, and you may just find yourself going back again and again during your stay!
Stroll over to the neighboring village of Atrani where you'll find several excellent dining options. The Ristorante Le Arcate
is located right on the water, overlooking the town's tiny and lovely beach. Pasta with swordfish and their grilled fish are two top choices, but you can't go wrong with any dish on the menu. And the view is romantic beyond belief!
Overlooking Amalfi's largest beach, the Ristorante Marina Grande
presents regional specialties with an refined and creative touch. Perfect for a lazy lunch or an elegant dinner, the seafood dishes are one of the restaurants specialties.
