Husband and wife team, Executive Chef/Owner Giancarlo Ferrara and his wife Manager/Owner Lisa Ferrara, invite you to experience the aromas, tastes, and passions of his homeland here in Houston through a culinary experience years in the making.

Raised in the Amalfi’s Coast largest coastal city, Salerno, Italy, Giancarlo the youngest of 7 children 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. Influenced by his culinary roots, Giancarlo headed to culinary school at Centro Professionale Alberghiero in Salerno, where he finished first in his class, before furthering his education in Master Courses at Scuola Arte Culinaria Etoile. Giancarlo built the culinary foundation for a life in the worlds’s finest restaurants. His appreciation for local, and seasonal food of top quality grew, following him in each of his culinary endeavors 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, assorted meats, family-made cheeses, cleanly crafted cocktails, and an extensive, thoughtful wine list.

Amalfi offers a warm setting to celebrate and cherish everyday moments as well as significant milestones. We look forward to sharing our kitchen with you.
