"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!"

This is an updated but still old fashioned Italian restaurant. Family owned for two generations. Recommended highly.

Amalfi's is one of my favorite places to eat in the area. They are a family owned and ruined business and they make you feel special every time you go into dine.

Great food, friendly staff and management. Truly a family feel to the restaurant and not just another depersonalized corporate style dining experience!

I've been eating at Amalfi's for years and it is one of my all time favorite Italian restaurants. I brought a large group from out of town for a business dinner and they were a little unsure when we pulled up to the location (back in some warehouses) but they were all amazed at the food and service. Another win for Amalfi's!!

Let’s just say I will not be back. The place is old and tired. The food tastes institutional and some had to be returned. The service was not up to today’s standards. I’m surprised they are still in business.

We loved everything about the place other than the food. We thought the food was average to good. Loved the environment and wait staff. Very helpful and attentive. $100+ is a fair amount to spend and not to find the food at least good. Not sure we will return.

We have been here a few times with either grandchildren or elderly in laws. A good fit for those types. Wine list is dull. Lacked an alternative salad dressing. Otherwise an adequate meal, not for special ocasions.

The chef seems to be unable to cook the broccoli enough to be edible. Okay, I guess if you enjoy warm raw broccoli. I have asked for well-cooked broccoli on every visit, but it is never edible. Eggplant parmesan is the best on the planet.

There are reasons why five generations of our family have gone to Amalfi Ristorante! The quality and preparation of the food is always excellent. The eggplant parmesan is the best there is anywhere and the white pizza is still a sensational signature item! The friendliness of the owners and staff is exemplary and we are always treated as extended family. Every person we have ever brought to Amalfi’s for their first time experience has become a loyal, repeat customer. Sue and Larry Jeweler

The food from onion focaccia to lemon mascarpone cake and everything in between is so delicious. Amalfi’s never disappoints. This is the best family-owned Italian restaurant in Montgomery County.

Amalfi is one of my very favorite restaurants, and easily one of the best Italian places in the DC area. There is no way anyone could be disappointed with food of this quality. Family owned, extremely friendly and helpful staff.

We celebrated Mother's Day here and everyone raved about the cuisine. From the warm welcome to the warm farewell, this family owned restaurant lived up to its reputation. Some hint of Italian music would have been nice, but not essential. We recommend trying as many different menu items as possible and saving room for dessert.

This is definitely a neighborhood gem. Tablecloths and Silverware but you can be comfortable dressed up or casual. Great food, service and overall experience. It is an older location a little out of the way but don't let that stop you unless you are more into image than substance. We had a very nice dinner as usual!
