Bound for Amalfi..please advise!

erica | Apr 3, 2008 01:59 PM

We will be spending 5 nights in Amalfi (and 2 in Naples; will post separately after doing more research) at the end of the month. I am looking for great eating and any and all food-related tips.

Most dinners will be in Amalfi, where we are staying, but also willing to take the bus to nearby towns for great eating.

Also, I have planned one day for Cetara, Paestum and the mozzarella stands on the road near Battipaglia. For this we plan to hire a car and driver. I own the SlowFood book and, along with the other tips, would love to hear of any experiences in SF's Cetara osterie:

Acquapazza
Il Convento
San Pietro

Amalfi SlowFood listings are:

Cantina San Nicola
Trattoria da Rispoli (In Pogerola)

In Atrani:

A Paranza

Also would like the word on these (not in SlowFood) in Amalfi:

Da Gemma
Eolo (in Marina Riviera Hotel)
Maccus
La Caravella

Any good pizza in the town? (one name for this that I have is: San Giusseppe, owned by a local baker)

What about a lunch or dinner place in Ravello..nothing formal, however.

What foods are worth seeing out to bring home??

Many, many thanks, in advance!
