“Great family Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

My wife and I went to Amalfi's for the first time on New Year's Eve. We had heard from friends that it was a nice local restaurant with great food. We were not disappointed. We had made reservations and our table was ready when we arrived. Most of the tables were filled with families or friends. You could tell by the conversions that most were regulars. We started with fried zucchini that was done just right. Although we had to ask for maranara to go with it, it wasn't a problem. I had the rigatoni with sausage and mushrooms which was delicious. The sausage was not mild and the serving plentiful (took the other half home for lunch the next day). My wife had the veal marsala that was piled with mushrooms and lots of tender veal. I tried it and it was very good. We finished with tartufo for dessert which we loved. Along with the wine the cost was around $100 (not counting tip). Great time and we will return.

“Good Food, Generous Portions, Reasonably Priced, Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Our party of 8 family members (in laws and out laws) met at Amalfi for a Wednesday night
pre thanksgiving meal. Though it took close to an hour to be served the main course (there was a large group prior to our being seated and it took time to roast the whole fish), it was worth the wait. We survived our wait devouring the excellent garlic & cheese white pizza, the crusted bread, and enjoying the company of others.

With bronzino (a European seabass), eggplant parmesan, veal parmesan, salmon, clams with linguini, and prosciutto, everyone finished everything on their plate. I was reminded that we have been eating here for more than 30 thirty years! And this fact that my DC family eats here and continues to eat here, is in itself is a recommendation!

“Get out your Itilian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

This is my private restaurant from Italy. Ill be sad when there starts to be a wait here. The staff is second generation owners and yes Italian. This is the best Italian in Rockville with out a doubt. It reminds me of the place from lady and the tramp being classic and real. Snuggle up to the tales and the specials are great. Just got this in this morning kind of stuff. Try the eggplant. The fried calamari will ruin you for anywhere else's calamari. Its better no where else. seriously. Priced right for the dining experience. I wanted to tip one hundred percent.

“Really Bad Italian Food! Over Priced, Poor Quality!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I read the majority of decent reviews on this site, regarding Amalfi's . I only found 2 reviews that were recent and negative! The bad reviews are Justified! Our waiter was nice and the only good part of our experience! What was Wrong? Everything!! I ordered Lasagna, the lasagna had no seasoning in it, the sauce was not close to tasty with absence of seasoning. My GF ordered Egg Plant Parm. Again, NO seasoning, the cook was too lazy to peel the egg plant too. The food had little tomato sauce on either dish, and what was on the food was not tasty at all! Don't waste your Money on this restaurant because you can get a better meal in a Can and save alot of Money!!!!

“It has been a few years, will be back sooner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We have not been there in a few years and this was a quite night for the restaurant. The food was good, served quickly,the waiter a little slow. In general a good dinner. Have been there years ago with a large group and things are handled very well even with a roudy crowd.
