Amalfi's Restaurant & Mercato
The goal at Amalfi’s Restaurant & Mercato in Portland is “to provide 100 percent full bellies and happy hearts,” and they deliver. Owned by Kiauna Floyd, Amalfi’s has been serving Portland’s northeast Beaumont Neighborhood since 1959. In addition to being the perfect spot for date nights and private events, Amalfi’s is a destination for classic Italian comfort food. Highlights include Amalfi’s pizzas — which use a 60-year-old family dough recipe — and the Good ‘Ol Spaghettini that comes with your choice of meat sauce or a rich Cabernet marinara. Amalfi’s dessert menu also boasts a killer Tiramisu and Spumoni by the pint (if you dare).
Pro tip: Stop by Amalfi’s Mercato to stock up on frozen items like family-size lasagna pans, sauces, meatballs, and fresh pasta.
