Italian
Amalia Fumelli is the inspiration behind Amalia’s Authentic Italian Restaurant. She was born in Italy in 1932, and grew up on a farm. As she grew up, she took an interest in cooking and learned everything about the Italian kitchen from her mother and grandmother. For countless hours each day, Amalia began making hand-made pasta with her rolling pin on an old, wooden table. After many years, she had mastered her pasta creations through her skilled handiwork, precise cutting skills, and the amount of love she put into her work.

Over time, Amalia has passed all of her secrets and knowledge about food along to her children and grandchildren. One grandchild in particular, Filippo Fanfani, gained a passion for the art of cooking through her guidance. As a child, he spent all his days at his grandmother’s house preparing meals for his family. The two have a strong bond, that began with their conjoining love of creating meals that are enjoyable for everyone.

    The house is lovely up front and the main dishes were excellent. We were less impressed by the appetizer and dessert. The back of the house, where the restrooms are located, could use some attention to cleanliness and presentation. It felt like 2 different experiences from front to back. Overall though, I would definitely recommend it for the creative first and second courses and the very attentive staff.

    Food was great. I had the filet, and my husband had the bolognese. Our server Brian was very attentive and helped us with our choices. Very nice place.

    Amalia‘s is a Wake Forest gem. It is superb fine dining, excellent service, and although a little pricey, what very good restaurant isn’t. Want to enjoy a really nice meal in a quiet setting? Amalia’s should be on your list.
