An enchanting addition to Liverpool’s dining scene, Amalia is one of the cities favourite spots for fine Italian fare. Also one of the nation’s favourite tastecard restaurants, Amalia offers an exemplary level of hospitality as well as exquisite Italian dishes, all of which are available at an excellent price when members call in advance with their card.
A beautiful Italian flower, the amalia is certainly an apt inspiration for the restaurant that bears its name, due to the captivating sense of floral décor found within. Amalia also translates roughly to ‘industrious and hardworking’, which certainly describes how hard the staff work to make each visit a thoroughly enjoyable one.
The menu is awash with a taste bud tantalising array of Italian indulgences, ranging from the classic to the contemporary. Begin the experience with one of the sublime starters, featuring the likes of the juicy polpette al Pomodoro, pork & beef meatballs adorned with a tomato sauce, the sumptuous crocchette di pollo, chicken croquettes complete with homemade breadcrumbs, a Bechamel sauce and a garlic mayonnaise, and the irresistible Breton mussels, cooked in a garlic & white wine sauce with a hint of chilli.
Just as deliciously diverse are the main courses, which offer a sensational selection of pizzas, pasta dishes, seafood options and much, much more. Particularly merit worthy meals include the tender Costolette di Maiale con Barbecue, Amalia’s famous slow cooked pork ribs topped with an orange & barbecue sauce and paired with a choice of sweet potato fries or pan roasted new potatoes, the heavenly tortellini al Quattro formaggi, a tortellini stuffed with Ricotta & spinach and finished with a four cheese sauce, and the delectable filleto de brazino, a grilled fillet of sea bass complete with garlic & chilli enriched king prawns.
Considering the incredible savings guests can make with a tastecard there seems to be little reason not to enquire as to which divine wines can be paired with each course, a service that the friendly staff will be more than happy to help with. Well worthy of a special occasion or an intimate evening out with that special someone, Amalia is sure to enthral the senses and enhance any trip to Liverpool.
