With all these elements working perfectly together, Amalfitana Artisan Pizza Bar makes sure that you have the time of your life! Enjoy the open floor setting, colourful Italian murals and open kitchen – where you can see the professional pizzaiolos working their magic – as you sip on one of their exquisite cocktails (negronis, marinas and belluchis!). Amalfitana also offer takeaway, so if you can’t get a table, you can take your pizzas to go and enjoy them on the beach!
Sassy tip: While the pizzas here are obviously a must order, we’re also big fans of the Kale Caesar Salad, not to mention the Nutella topped Pizza for dessert!
