The Amalfi Coast is simply stunning, time to kick start your dreams of a gluten free Amalfi adventure. A glorious region in Southern Italy, with beautiful towns scattered along a rugged coastline. It’s all spectacular views, lemon groves, azure seas and, of course, plenty of gluten free food!
This gluten free Amalfi Coast guide is the perfect place to start planning your next Italian adventure. And while there are plenty of coeliac friendly restaurants dotted around, it helps to know where to look.
While we were on holiday in the region I was able to test some of these places personally. However, I can only eat a certain amount :D, so I have also included well-reviewed eateries and other locations that are coeliac friendly or recommended by the AIC, the Italian Coeliac Society.
My gluten free Amalfi Coast guide is broken down by town, to make it easy to navigate. Covering various gluten free options in:
- Vetri Sul Mare
- Marina del Cantone
And if you are visiting as part of a larger Italy trip, have a read of my Gluten Free Italy Country Guide. I’ve general advice and tips for travelling as a coeliac in Italy, plus a large number of city guides.
Sorrento Gluten Free
For Sorrento, have a read of my full Gluten Free Sorrento Guide. Because I found so many options there I had to write a dedicated guide! One of my favourite places to eat there was the Foreigner’s Club – just look at these profiteroles.
Positano Gluten Free
A stunning town with colourful painted houses and pebble beach, Positano lovely town to stop for lunch during your Amalfi coast trip.
Il Tridente at Hotel Poseidon
With a stunning terrace overlooking the ocean, the bar and restaurant at Hotel Poseido is a great spot for aperitivo. Or for a full evening meal or lunch. Their website mentions that they offer various gluten free, coeliac friendly options and if you pre-book even gluten free aperitivo (an early evening drink with selection of nibbles – an Italian tradition). You need to book in advance.
Casa e Bottega
A lifestyle store and airy cafe that is a perfect spot for brunch or lunch. We enjoyed a mega gluten free sandwich, salad, and baked eggs with gluten free bread (pictured below). Many items on the menu can be adapted to be gluten free, so simply ask staff and they’ll talk you through it. One of my yummiest gluten free Amalfi coast lunches.
Mentioned in the Michelin guide, this restaurant can cater well for gluten free dietary requirements. Staff can talk you through the choices on the menu.
This place gets some glowing reviews from other gluten free travellers, who mention a big choice of pasta dishes and gluten free bread. PLUS gluten free desserts!
I saw @glutenfreeizzy sharing some gluten free croissants on Instagram, which she had bought at this bakery, with some filled with jam or chocolate. It seems the bakery does not have many gluten free options and I’m not sure about coeliac friendly-ness, but maybe pop in if you are passing.
Another pretty terrace with sea view, this restaurant serves up some impressive risotto and also offers gluten free pasta dishes.
Capri Gluten Free
An island rather than part of the coast, but a destination that many Amalfi Coast visitors add to their itineraries. Hence, I thought I should include it in this gluten free Amalfi Coast guide.

Ristorante La Caravella
A fine dining, Michelin-starred restaurant that can offer a gluten free menu. Booking essential. It’s a, 8-course gluten free tasting menu for two people and certainly isn’t cheap at EUR160 per person, but if you are looking for a special meal this could be the spot.
A local reader told me that everything can be done gluten free at this restaurant.
Salerno Gluten Free

Marina del Cantone Gluten Free
A smaller, low key resort at the far end of the coast, it’s a nice place to escape the crowds if you want a quieter beach day. We stayed up in the hills not far from here, and enjoyed the relative peace and quiet.
Taverna del Capitano
This unassuming restaurant actually has a Michelin star and when I popped in they assured me they could cater for coeliacs.
Just along the beach, jutting out over the water, this restaurant was another I found with gluten free options available.
Self Catering on the Amalfi Coast
We stayed in an Airbnb with self catering facilities, as we’ve young children. In the evenings we tended to cook at home then eat out for lunch.
You’ll find supermarkets sell lots of gluten free products in Italy, from pasta and pizza to bread and ice cream! It’s a great way to save money too, as those Amalfi Coast restaurants can be pricey.
