“The best gelato that we had in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

My wife and daughter and I came upon Pasticceria Savoia at the end of a magical day.

We were staying in a rented villa down the coast from Amalfi in Marmorata and ended up there one afternoon after a long circuitous walk from Minori up the endless series of stairs up to Ravello and then down a terrifying series of stairways down from Ravello to Amalfi. We stopped for a drink on the promenade and then wandered through the town. On the way to the Duomo, we passed a beautiful pastry and gelato shop. It looked dauntingly expensive so we decided to check out some others, but after a few minutes we were lured back to this palace of pastry. We tasted at least a dozen kinds of gelato and then made the terribly difficult choice of four varieties which they packed into a large insulated box. While we were tasting, my wife also selected some of their delectable tuiles. It was not inexpensive but as always when something is superb, it is the memory not the cost that stays with you.

As we left the shop, we could see a rain storm approaching so we jumped into a cab, just as a torrent came down on us. A triple rainbow over quickly formed over the Tyrrherian Sea as the taxi delivered us home - a salute to what we were carrying. My daughter's fiancé had prepared a marvellous dinner of local fish which we probably rushed through much too quickly in order to get to the gelato and tuiles. It was an overwhelmingly delicious finish to a wonderful day.

We used Savoia as our control in a series of carefully conducted experiments at various the famous Roman gelato emporia but nothing came anywhere close to Savoia.

“Great tasting Lemon Gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Centrally located, you can't miss it. Great gelato and other pastries. Price was good and the quality of the gelato was excellent. I specifically tried this place and I was glad that I did.

“Best Gelato and Italian Pasteries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The first evening in Amalfi, we happened upon this shop and stopped to have a gelato. The Savoia was very clean and the numerous flavors was very difficult to decide upon which flavor to have, so we had a mixture of two; dark chocolate and lemoncello. Michaela, the owner was very friendly and we enjoyed chatting. Our stay in Amalfi was 4 days and every evening we had to go back to end the evening with a delicious gelato. I can't say enough about the quallty and the service and would ensure that our next visit we would definitely have to stop in to say Ciao!!

“Very good gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

This pasticceria/gelateria is on the main SS at the entrance to the main piazza. We went there for gelato and they have a good selection. The flavors we selected were very good, did not taste like pre-made or packaged products.

We did notice several locals on Sunday in town carrying packets of pastries from here - that is always a good sign.

Price is average for Amalfi.
