About Old Amalfi

Named for the famously beautiful stretch of coast on southern Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, Old Amalfi is a long-standing Italian restaurant in London’s Bloomsbury. In fact, Old Amalfi has occupied its Southampton Row premises since 1978, serving locals and curious visitors to the area’s many museums and theatres. Over the decades, tastes have changed, and while Old Amalfi is committed to the venerable traditions of Italian cuisine, the restaurant offers considered contemporary updates suited to the discerning modern palate. A real destination for London’s lovers of Italian.

Further Information

Many of Bloomsbury’s culinary aficionados know and love Old Amalfi for their great set menu lunch deals – an ideal way to idle the noon hours away after a visit to the British Museum, for instance, and a fantastic introduction to this London Italian restaurant’s take on Italian cuisine. As you’d quite rightly expect, this veteran restaurant down Southampton Row has assembled an a la carte menu that is eminently classical in structure. Antipasti include Old Amalfi’s soup of the day, pan-fried Italian sausage with red peppers, chilli and basil, Roman-style calamari, and beautiful platters of antipasto all’Italiana laden with Parma ham, Neapolitan salami, mortadella, olives, marinated courgettes and wedges of Parmesan. And that’s just to start.

Classic Italian salads segue into pasta dishes like the classic carbonara, gnocchi with a four cheese sauce, and a simple, briny bucatini alla puttanesca with olives, capers, garlic and anchovies in a tomato sauce. For the main event, we recommend the rolled and roasted (with garlic and rosemary) pork tenderloin with Pancetta and red peppers or the simple seafood salad of deep-fried salmon, sea bass, king prawns and squid. Old Amalfi take their pizza seriously (they’re well-known to Bloomsbury for their traditional, wood-fired oven and the perfect Neapolitan pies produced therein), and you can choose from all the classics, plus a list of pizze rosse and pizze bianche, with no mozzarella cheese and no tomato sauce respectively. Or, go pizza ripiene with a folded calzone del bosco: mozzarella, Neapolitan salami and mushrooms. No Italian meal would be complete without some robust Italian wine. Old Amalfi’s cellars are well-stocked, offering the house selections by the glass, half or full bottle, and a great range of well-annotated continental vintages. A favourite in central London, we advise an early booking, especially for large groups (special set menus can be arranged for such parties).

We found the restaurant staff very helpful and friendly. Having already had nibbles at a reception we were not particularly hungry and so shared in which they were happy to accommodate us. The food was fresh and cooked, presented and served nicely. Overall, a restaurant with friendly helpful staff and lovely food.

SUPERB... Personally and as a company we used to frequent The Old Amalfi and the service and food quality went downhill and so 2 years ago we went elsewhere. However, memory plays funny tricks and so we decide to try again. We were not disappointed. There were 8 of us - 2 of whom are vegan and we were a bit worried about how we would fare. The restaurant was a bit short staffed; however we could not have been better treated. The reception was very warm and welcoming, We were offered the vegan options and a few adaptations, were were very happy with the results. The food arrived, all served with a smile and we very aware that the staff cared about our meals and how we were enjoying them. The quality of all the meals was exceptional... Thank you - we will be back!

I was in a party of four, and everyone agreed that the food was delicious. Some interesting dishes were on offer, and the satff were friendly and ready to answer any quesions about items on the menu. There are a range of vegetarian options, and if you have particular dietary needs you can arrange for certain ingredients to be omitted. We all enjoued our meal at this restaurant, which has a very independent feel about it. The only reason I am not giving it maximum points is because it became a little uncomfortably warm as the night wore on. That may have been highly unusual, because I did look at reviews before choosing to reserve a table there, and nobody mentioned the temperature!

I had a lovely dinner for two at the Old Amalfi - the interior design is very authentic, the service was great - there when you need them in an instant but not over bearing. The food was delicious and tasted very fresh, their specials were particularly impressive.

Myself and 2 others dined in Amalfi on a Friday night. It was a good experience. On arrival we were welcomed by a friendly face and shown to our table. From there on the service was good and friendly but unobtrusive which I always like! The food was good with ample portions. The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is a pleasant place. It is a little noises but that would not put me off making further visits or recommending it to friends. We were very happy with our evening there.

What a Gem! I celebrated my 30th here with my 9yr old son. The food was delicious and the staff were warm, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We had a wonderful meal and a dessert to die for. I would absolutely recommend Old Almalfi if you want great quality food and a lovely dining experience.

Very good restaraunt. The food was superb and our table of 6 had a wide variety to try. The staff were attentive and friendly. The bill very reasonable for the food and wine. One issue was the external booking site failed to get a reservation to them but they were able to fit us in.
