About Us

Photo: David NguyenThe western coast of Italy summons visions of gorgeous views, salty air, and the freshest seafood & produce imaginable. Leave your passport at the door – Chef/Owner Giancarlo Ferrara invites you to experience the tastes, aromas, and passions of his homeland right here in Houston through a culinary experience years in the making.

Growing up the youngest of 7 children in Amalfiā€™s Coast largest coastal city, Salerno, Italy, Chef Ferrara often found himself alongside his mother in the kitchen where he absorbed many lessons that can only be taught with time, patience, passion, and love. Giancarlo influenced by his culinary family, finished first in his class at Centro Professionale Alberghiero in Salerno. His appreciation for quality, local, and seasonal food grew as well, following him in each of his culinary ambitions and becoming the cornerstones for his menus.

The inspired menu at Amalfi emphasizes fresh seafood, vivid citrus, and cozy olive oil in addition to fresh pastas, an assortment of meats, family-made cheeses, cleanly crafted cocktails, and an extensive, thoughtful wine list.

Here at Amalfi we strive to offer a warm setting in which to celebrate and cherish both everyday moments and significant milestones. Come visit one of the finer Italian restaurant Houston. Please visit soon; we look forward to sharing our kitchen with you.
