You don't have to go far in Amalfi to find restaurants well off the beaten path away from the center of town, which some visitors may find too touristy. Amalfi has many frazioni
, or hamlets, which are great places to find restaurants full of authentic charm. Head up in the mountains to the hamlet of Pogerola where you'll find beautiful a pretty little village with a feel all its own. Explore the little town and take in the fine views before settling in at one of the local restaurants for a feast of local foods. Osteria Da Rispoli and Ristorante Le Carcara are both excellent choices in Pogerola.
Located along the Amalfi Coast road west of Amalfi, the Ristorante Al Pesce d'Oro in the hamlet of Vettica offers great home cooking and wonderful pizza in a friendly setting. During the summer, dine on the bougainvillea covered terrace with beautiful views.
However, if you know where to look, you can find off the beaten path restaurants right in the historic center of Amalfi. The town's maze of tiny streets and little piazzas makes it ideal for restaurants tucked away from the buzz of the Piazza Duomo. Explore the medieval maze of Amalfi to find the Pizzeria Donna Stella located off a narrow staircase. In the pretty Largo Santa Maria Maggiore is Maccus, perfect for a peaceful outdoor dinner during warm weather.
Many visitors to Amalfi don't realize that the cute little town of Atrani is just around the corner a short walk away. Head over there to dine on local specialties at Ristorante A' Paranza, a real find in the area that most visitors miss!
