Amalfi- Chorley

In an unassuming side street in Chorley sits Amalfi , a friendly Italian restaurant. We visited on a Tuesday lunchtime, the day of the week when Chorley comes alive for its weekly “flat iron “ Market. Amalfi is a contemporary restaurant serving traditional Italian fare. For the budget conscious at lunchtime there is a special menu and also in the early evening an early bird special.

We were warmly welcomed and seated , the lunchtime menu was extensive , I choose the bruschetta mista, Mr B the funghi trifolia, whilst waiting for the starters we nibbled on good black olives, admiring the photographs of Italy on the walls. Our starters arrived piping hot, my bruschetta was rather large for a lunchtime starter , having no less than 4 different types to sample. The funghi starter was more lunch sized, both were a good start to our meal.

The mains arrived after a suitable break , Spaghetti alio, aglio and pepercino and spaghetti carbonara , both cooked well and very filling. All in all a pleasurable lunch venue and good value too !
