The Cuisine Of Amalfi

The Amalfi Coast and Amalfi are among the most fascinating areas of Campania and South of Italy. The city of Amalfi was declared an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997 and is full of beautiful monuments and places to visit. The cuisine of Amalfi is, traditionally, sea food, but you can also find a lot of dishes made with ingredients from the land, such as buffalo mozzarella and, especially, Pizza.

For example, in Pogerola, a hamlet in the highest part of the Costiera, at the restaurant La Carcara, you can enjoy the seasonal cuisine of Amalfi and seafood, like the scialatielli with seafood and lobster paccheri (a type of pasta) while you enjoy a wonderful view of the coast.

Always in Pogerola, for those who don’t have much time and want just to stop only for a sandwich during the tour, you can stop at Gerry’s Pub, where you can taste some excellent wines with the cuisine of Amalfi.

If you prefer meat, you can have lunch at the restaurant La Taverna dei Briganti, where you will be able to taste some great appetizers from the region, such as the Brigante’ mix, and meat grilled with truffle.
For those who did not want to go up to Pogerola, but prefer to enjoy the proximity to the sea, or perhaps visit the Cathedral, also in Amalfi itself you will find excellent restaurants, such as Eolo, where you can enjoy the “end of the world”, a dessert with chocolate .
Always in Amalfi, you can enjoy a lunch at the restaurant Marina Grande, where you can taste some delicious cocktails, homemade bread and fresh fish, perhaps accompanied by a glass of red wine.

If you wish to eat meat, you could sit in the restaurant Da Gemma, and enjoy some meat in a crust or the caponata with porcini mushrooms.

Talking about the cuisine of Amalfi, we can’t forget the lemon and many derived products, such as many kinds of limoncello, a liqueur produced by maceration of lemon peels in alcohol.

The lemon variety typical of the area is called Sfusato Amalfitano and is also used to produce a variety of sweets such as lemon cakes in many variations, profiteroles with lemon cream and ice cream or sorbet, of course! There are also other types of dishes prepared with this particular citrus, such as lemons baked with mozzarella and spaghetti with lemon.
