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.

    Shannon was a dream of a waiter, friendly and very helpful helping us pick a wine and meals which were amazingly delicious. The ambience was wonderful. We'll definitely be going back.

    We were looking for a restaurant to replace our favorite Italian restaurant in Virginia. I believe we have found it! Food is outstanding and the knowledge and history of the menu is like no other. Everything is authentic and so is the staff! Thank you Amalia's.

    Between 4 and 5 star overall experience. The service was top tier. Amazing cheeses and incredible pasta. The steak was very good and cooked perfectly, but for the price, I have had better cuts of beef. The drinks were also very good. The paper plane was one of my favorite drinks I've had in a while.

    Our waiter was also one of the owners, he was dressed impeccably and educated us about the preparation of each dish. They went above the average basket of bread, with a sweet bread with the best Parmesan cheese I’ve ever had. This was my second time dining at Amalia’s and I will definitely return, as there is so much more I want to try.

    We dined at Amalia’s for the first time and throughly enjoyed it! Our server was not only attentive but helpful in making suggestions for cocktails and each course. The food was fresh & delicious!! My only “complaint” is that the decor could definitely use some updating. Overall we had a lovely experience & I highly recommend it for a special occasion.

    Our service was the biggest highlight. From the front door, to the table, it was so remarkable. Natalie was wonderful at sharing the intended flow, making recommendations, and truly making the night one to remember.
