Italian
"Italy, it's closer than you think." Founded by Moe Sr. in 1977 Amalfi is a True Family Owned & Operated Restaurant. We are a very hands on family that take pride in doing all the work ourselves and strive to have the very best restaurant in town. Moe Jr. is the head chef, Johnny is the General Manager, Teresa hosts and overlooks the operation. Moe Sr. and Teresa started Amalfi in February 1977 when Moe Jr. was only two years old and Johnny hadn't even been born yet. Now over 40 years later 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 local farms. From free range chicken to milk fed veal, even our sausage is all natural. Almost all of our pasta is handmade on premises and we've gotten rid of practically all dishes made in batches so now our meals are made to order to ensure optimal freshness and quality. Come in and see why they say, "Once you visit Amalfi, you may never leave!"

We love Amalfi's! We have been having family dinners there for years. It never disappoints. My favorite is the lasagna. My husband and kids love the fettuccine.

Amalfi's is my favorite Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is nice, the service is great, and the food is spectacular. They are so nice and hospitable, and the food is so good, that going to Amalfi's is like going to your Mom's for comfort food.

Honestly. Food was average. Caesar salad not fresh. not much greens.
Had Shrimp Marinara. Shrimp was tough. My GF had Sea Bass. which when served was a flat filet. like trout.
My favorite dish when I was younger was Chz manicotti. no longer on menu!

Wonderful food in a setting that could be found in any Italian town. Friendly efficient service. Food is excellently prepared and priced very reasonably. The only issue is limited parking. You can't go wrong by eating at this restaurant.

What a treat! We made last minute Valentine's Day dinner plans and picked Amalfi Ristorante. It was amazing. Like going to a friends home for dinner. The food was excellent. The service was top rate. I felt so welcome when we arrived. I can't wait to go back. This is now one of our Italian favs.

I have been going to Amalfi's for the last 2 years or so. The food and service are both outstanding. Not a pressure place. The waiters are friendly and the kitchen is outstanding. fresh pasta. While local for me it would be worth a try from most places in the D.C. area.

When we lived closer by we would go to Amalfi all the time. This is the first time we've been back since we moved out of the area and nothing has changed - in a good way! The food is still as great as we remember and the atmosphere and staff are top notch. Thanks for keeping it the way we remember. We were on our way to the theatre and having dinner with you beforehand made for a really wonderful night.

We love Amalfi’s. It is our “go to” place for Italian. We always have a great meal and friendly service. The owner and his family are wonderful and helpful. Service is always with a smile. Their homemade pastas are delicious. We have never had a bad meal. I also appreciate their effort to source locally. The only downside is the atmosphere. It really needs an update (especially the bathrooms!), but perhaps that is part of its charm.

New Year’s Eve was my first time here. I made the reservation based on reviews and because it was open and did not serve a “NYE” menu. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We were never rushed, and we were able to talk- it was friendly and lively but never crazy loud. The food here measures up to my fond memories growing up on in NY. I had spaghetti with clams in garlic broth and it was delicious.

Amalfi is a family owned restaurant that we've been going to for more than 30 years. The food is always good, and everyone there is always friendly and warm. I was in a party of 6 New Year's Eve. We were comfortable, not rushed in any way and treated beautifully. Additionally, there was no problem with the noise level in the restaurant. We could hear each other without the need to shout. Enjoy this neighborhood gem.

I have been going to Amalfi's for 40 years and it just gets better with age. Mrs. Amalfi and her sons will provide you with great service and culinary delights. There is simply no better place to get White Pizza. We eat it as an appetizer because the main entrees are so delicious. Authentic Italian food at its best. It's a small out of the way restaurant that survives because of their great food and service.
