Owner and chef Giancarlo Ferrara has officially opened Amalfi Ristorante Italiano & Bar. “This restaurant is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream,” stated Ferrara. “I will be importing fish, cheese and wines from my home town, Salerno, Italy, as well as the neighboring villages, for a true taste of the Amalfi Coast. This restaurant, with the white table cloths, ocean blue napkins and the food I will be serving, all pays homage to the Amalfi Coast. The only thing missing is the view of sea.” Chef Giancarlo Ferrara began his culinary journey in his hometown of Salerno, on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi Coast. Giancarlo, influenced by his culinary family, finished first in his class at Centro Professionale Albergiero in Salerno. Furthering his training at Scuola Arte Culinaria Etoile, he solidified the skills he would need to serve in some of the world’s finest restaurants. Giancarlo is now fulfilling his dream of opening up his own restaurant, Amalfi, where he will blend the spirit of his heritage with skill and technique.
