Great food and wine experience. Had the best cavatelli with veal ragu outside of Italy. Wonderful and attentive wait staff but not intrusive. Well trained. We ate outside on the side patio and had a wonderful dining experience. This is authentic Italian food, not Itlo-American.

Food was fresh and delicious, possibly the best veal chop I've eaten anywhere! Friendly, helpful service. Nice, cozy atmosphere. This place could go up against the best of them in big cities. Don't miss it if you're in Beacon!

The manager personally checked in with all of the tables, and she gave us glasses of champagne on the house to celebrate our anniversary. Incredibly personal touch that added to an already delicious and outstanding meal.

The atmosphere was relaxing and quiet so we were able to enjoy our conversations. The service was excellent. The bar drinks were delicious. Of the 6 of us 2 had the same meal; one thought it was a bit salty while the other enjoyed the dish. I would definitely return to try other dishes and enjoy a relaxing dinner.

Found we were charged for a second soda even though it was 15 minutes after I ordered it. Considering it wasn’t that busy shouldn’t have happened. But the food was great.

It was a rainy day and the resturant was not busy.
We got a table by the open window and enjoyed a leisurely lunch
The food was outstanding. We shared the octopus salad and the heirloom tomato salad. I also had the mushroom soup of the day. Outstanding soup.

I would definitely recommend Cafe Amarcord to a friend. The food was amazing. Place was very nice. Service was great! A little pricey, but worth it as a Father’s Day dinner. We will be back.

Came here on recommendation of a friend. Food very good: had veal chop and souls specials. Friday dinner slot good, but got very noisy as others arrived by 7:30. Service good, no rush.
Dinner for 2 came to $123. A bit pricy for everyday dining.
Would recommend for special occasion though.

Delicious meal, beautiful venue. Multiple wait staff to attend to our table, however it appeared they were stressed. Our primary waiter was working 8 tables and we had to explain that we were not in a rush. The manager did stop by to talk about our experience. I highly recommend and a definite "must visit" if you are in the area!

Amarcord was recommended to us from a local business as we had just arrived in town and wanted a local's perspective on the food. The meal was outstanding including the two appetizers and one main dish ordered.

A lovely dinner and evening enjoyed by the four of us. The noise level kept increasing so if you are
looking for a quiet maybe romantic evening, would not be my first choice.

Everything was delicious. Portion sizes are not huge, which I like. A bit on the pricey side, if that is a concern. $140 for 2. I will definitely go back!

What a nice evening out with friends. This restaurant is a home run. We will definitely be returning. The server Zach was great he perfectly timed his presence at our table and gave us room to relax and enjoy our time at the restaurant.
The food was excellent I had the veal chop , it was so filling but still left me wanting more!! Everything was fantastic. Thank you for making our evening outstanding.

Excellent Italian food - interesting, well-prepared, high quality, and not so easy to find at most restaurants. Good wine selection and pleasant setting. Highly recommend.
