Amalfi Pizzeria Ristorante, AKA Amalfi’s on Frome Street. It’s not quite the Amalfi Coast but we’ve been here since 1981.
No need to ask "Do you have Con Pollo?", it was invented here. Same with the Spinaci Pizza, the Linguine Zingarella and the Scaloppine Amalfi.
The food is fresh, it’s delicious and it’s local. It’s made to order and there’s plenty of it.
The menu has barely changed in 35 years and lots of people you know eat here.
Our wine list features great Australian varietals and styles as well as wines from Italy and further afield AND you can BYO wine for $15 per bottle.
Make a booking now via phone or email or try your luck and walk in off the street, we’ll do our best too find you a spot!Discover our menu
High-class professional service
Numerous commentators have also referred to the supposed restaurant owner's eccentric habit of touting for custom outside his establishment, dressed in aristocratic fashion and brandishing a sword
From our customers
"The service was absolutely outstanding- all the wait staff were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive."
"Fantastic service and a gem of a restaraunt in Wilkesboro. Delicious authentic food, coming from someone who lived in Italy for a number of years. The owner and chef is from Italy and treated us like family. They accommodated for 27 of us with no trouble at all. A big thanks from the Howard University Men's Soccer team!"
"An Adelaide institution, the best Italian food in town. The pizza is legendary, the pasta top notch and the scaloppini is amazing. The staff are true professionals who make you welcome, helping to give the place a buzz that only a popular, well run establishment can have. Other places may be plusher and cafes may be slightly cheaper but Amalfi is ahead of them all with amazing food, great service and fantastic value. Amalfi is the final word in Italian dining."
"Food was reasonably presented and came in massive proportions. If you like a meal as big as your head, try an entree pasta. The food was also rich and well flavored. Environment is inviting, friendly and warm. Staff were all pleasant and friendly."
"What an absolute gem! Has to be one of the best restaurants in Adelaide. Always busy for a reason, it's just good food. If you've never been here, do yourself a favor and make a booking. Good spot, great staff and even better food."
"Delicious! Warm and friendly. Busy at opening time on a Saturday. Would recommend booking. Great wines and delicious food."
" I had the puttanesca and it was delicious. This is a warm, cozy restaurant with good food. I will definitely be back. "
" One of my favourite restaurants in Adelaide. It's loud, busy and unpretentious. Quite possibly the best pasta I've had out of Italy. Their 'Amalfi' pasta is extremely addictive, egg ribbon pasta with mushrooms, pancetta in a thick chilli cream sauce. A very filling dish, a favour and texture that keeps me coming back for more. "
" This is one of those iconic places that every city has. A charming Italian establishment that looks like a pizza place, smells like a pizza and IS a pizza place. There are other items on the menu but who cares? The pizza is first class, the staff are always spot on and the location is convenient to shopping and other CBD activities as well as only a short walk to the great Adelaide Oval precinct. It is busy and you may have to wait - perhaps reserve a table in advance. "
