The Amalfi Way

Our Story

Hailing from Naples, Head Chef and Owner Luigi Esposito trained in perfecting Italian cuisine since he was 8 years old, selling pizza fritta alongside his Nonna Rosa. At age 11, he was schooled in the art of pizzas and was a member of the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani by 15.

The Amalfi Way is his love letter to the iconic Southern Italy destination, well-known for it’s Mediterranean climate, seafood dishes & limoncello production. Here you can enjoy honest Italian food with a focus on fresh seafood, homemade pasta and traditional desserts.

The Venue

Inspired by the seductive coastline of Italy, The Amalfi Way is a new restaurant located on the prestigious Heritage Listed Finger Wharf in Woolloomooloo.

Lemon trees and hand-painted ceramics transport you instantly to the local charm of the Amalfi Coast.

The Amalfi Way brings you a slice of Italy and allows you to enjoy, “I Sapori Naturali “- the taste of traditional dishes prepared with only the best ingredients.

Amalfi Living

It has been said, that when you are on The Amalfi Coast, it is like a dream, but it is not until you return home, that you start dreaming of it.
