The scenic Amalfi Coast in the southern region of Italy is a gourmet wonderland. Here are our picks for what to eat on the Amalfi Coast.
A Sweet Start to Your Day
Coffee on the Amalfi Coast is Neapolitan style, rich and flavorful. Have a sweet start to your day with a light, sugar encrusted brioche with a cappuccino freddo. Some places along the coast will make cappuccino freddo by filling a tall glass with icy coffee granite and pouring milk over it.
The blue waters of the Mediterranean are filled with pezzogna (blue-spotted bream), spigola (sea bass), orata (gilthead), and rombo (turbot) to name a few. Ask your server what is fresh that day. Fish will usually be served lightly grilled with olive oil and lemon or Acqua Pazza (crazy water) style in a light herby, garlicky tomato sauce.
