Amalfi Ristorante Italiano & Bar Restaurant Review

: Chef Giancarlo Ferrara brings the flavors of his homeland in Italy to this restaurant in West Houston. Fresh seafood and pastas are complemented by a beach-themed d├ęcor reminiscent of the Italian coastline. An inspired antipasti menu includes beef carpaccio served with a pear salad, and a terrine of foie gras with Moscato wine gelatin. And while pizzas are authentic and the risottos creamy with just the right amount of crunch, it's the fresh seafood dishes that really stand out. Try the Mediterranean sea bass served with roasted baby artichokes and black rice in saffron sauce or the Sicilian lobster scampi. For dessert, we suggest an espresso paired with the small cream-filled cake soaked in limoncello.
