awakened, customers can enjoy a glass of their favorite beverage while a passionate Cammarano and his sous chefs work to create an impressive meal that promises to leave guests with a craving to return. “We have many repeat customers,” noted Cammarano, who also said that each one has a favorite offering. “Some say that we have the best veal in town. Others love the tomato sauce. But I think the most popular item we serve is our stuffed pork chops. We use fresh, center- cut pork and prepare the dish in a delicious Marsala wine,” he described.

by Karen Plumley When you ask owner Gerardo Cammarano what’s so special about Trattoria Amalfi, he will say that at this particular Italian restaurant at the Nettle’s Plaza in Salem, customers are treated like family. But that is only the beginning. Located at the southern end of Route 28, Trattoria Amalfi is so much more than a little restaurant in an otherwise uninspiring shopping plaza. When guests choose to eat here, they will enjoy a feast of the senses from start to finish. “I want customers to see what Italy is all about, so we tried to create that kind of atmosphere at Amalfi,” Cammarano explained. And who could be better at demonstrating Italy’s finest points than the Cammarano family? Both Gerry and his wife, Sandra, were born and raised in Italy. Sandra is from the city of Albanella, Italy, near the popular and beautiful coastal town of Amalfi, the inspiration for the restaurant’s name. Gerry was one of four siblings who grew up in the farming villages of Mattinella, where his mother effectively “stirred up” his love of cooking. “My mom was a great cook. Since I was a little boy, I would watch her in the kitchen. I also learned about the importance of fresh ingredients from the farm,” said Cammarano, who has been involved in the restaurant business in one way or another all his life. At Trattoria Amalfi, Sandra and Gerardo are accompanied by their son, Gerardo, Jr., and their daughters Jessica and Sabrina, and will serve up some of the most delicious Italian fare, “family style,” in an atmosphere that is undoubtedly authentic. Guests at Trattoria Amalfi will be awed by a spectacular array of Italian wall murals (some of which were hand-painted by Woodbury School art teacher

Cammarano’s talents for cooking and creating a memorable Italian-inspired moment are undeniable, and his intense passion is contagious. During the 14 years that Trattoria Amalfi has existed, Cammarano and his staff have built a loyal patronage of regular customers that he would like to personally thank. They visit often and enjoy the magnificent dining experience that is like a trip to Italy—only at a fraction of the cost.
At Trattoria Amalfi, guests can forget their troubles for an hour or two while enjoying the sights, scents, sounds, and tastes that make the exotic Mediterranean peninsula so special. With Mother’s Day only a couple of months
away, Cammarano recommends that customers call for reservations now. “It is one of the busiest times for us. We often get booked up months in advance, so call early,” he said.

ingredients that go into the Amalfi signature dishes are imported from Italy. Plum tomatoes, extra- virgin olive oil, prosciutto, pastas, and many of the cheeses are brought in weekly through companies such as Accardi.
According to Cammarano, his biggest
rewards are sensory as well. It is a pleasure for him to see the smiles on his customers’ faces after a good meal and to hear their endless compliments, which are pretty much expected. It would be impossible to have a meal at Trattoria Amalfi without enjoying the entire experience.
