Chances are pretty good you’re here because you’re looking for a great meal or a special dining experience in Gainesville. It will be my personal honor and a privilege to serve you.

If you’ve been eating most of your Italian meals at the big, national chains, you’re in for a treat. At Amelia’s, I prepare every dish from scratch (I don’t even have a microwave in my kitchen!). Combining fresh ingredients with a fresh approach to classic Italian favorites, I promise you’ll taste the difference from the very first bite.

While you’re here, check out Amelia’s TV, where I’ll take you, step-by-step, through my most popular recipes and cooking techniques. And, on our Natural Cooking page, you’ll find tips on finding natural, local ingredients to make your at-home cooking healthier and more flavorful.

Like to make a reservation? Just hit the Open Table button to the left of my picture and we’ll get you set for an intimate dinner for two or a big family celebration in our private dining room.

Welcome to Amelia’s Cucina Casalinga, Gainesville’s authentic homestyle Italian restaurant—with a fresh touch.
