    Lackluster experience overall. We went to celebrate our anniversary expecting an intimate, fancy dinner and ended up in a crowded, loud environment with mediocre food. It was not as expected

    The food was good overall, with a good selection. The current specials we ordered were very good, especially the tempura fried zucchini blossoms stuff with Ricotta and basil pesto. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and provided good service, however some of the support staff were a little terse when asked questions. Definitely a very popular spot, in an unassuming location. Always a good sign when you hear people speaking Italian at an Italian restaurant. The main drawback was our table location and the cacophonous sound. We were sat at one of the three small 2 tops adjacent to the entrance and bar. My husband could barely hear anything I said and constantly was getting bumped by either servers or those waiting at the bar. Also our food was delivered to the wrong table multiple times and we were served the wrong food a few times as well. Would love to go back on maybe a less busy night and seated either outside on the patio, or somewhere further back in the restaurant.

    We were unfortunately seated at a 4top table at the front door. It was very congested and made dinner conversation impossible. Next time we will request a different table! Food and service were both spectacular.

    Fun double date night at Amalfi’s. Food was perfect! Cooked and seasoned well. Our table got Branzino, Oso Bucco Lamb, truffle pasta and the special of the night Halibut. Excellent. Great portion. They honored my reservations and we were promptly seated. It was a packed house.

    Date nite. We shared 2 appetizers (tuna poke and the prosciutto & caprese), the NY strip which they sliced and served family style with grilled asparagus for us, and the fettuccine carbonara with black truffle special. All of the food was perfectly portioned, seasoned, prepared and presented. Server was super friendly with great timing and made the evening very enjoyable. Neighborhood restaurant with a “regular crowd” but us non-regulars also felt very welcomed. Place was completely packed yet still very easy to carry on conversation at your table without having to shout at each other. Great experience and look forward to going back.

    Amalfi is the closest restaurant experience to being in Italy! We both had the Positano lunch. The salads were fresh, ingredients complemented the flavors, and they were lightly dressed. Both the meat and butternut squash ravioli were beautifully constructed with light, fresh pasta and sauces to match. The service was perfect, the wine at a good price point, and we went home with dozens of the Italian chocolate cookies of our childhood. Thank you!

    Llegué a celebrar mi aniversario con mi esposa, y en la reservación solicité una mesa esquinada o en una orilla ya que yo voy en silla de ruedas ya que ese día tuve quimioterapia, y al llegar, el gerente nos trató muy mal y nos quería sentar en una mesa central en donde mis silla de ruedas estorbaba y me hacía sentir incómodo. Le dije que me habían recomendado el lugar unos amigos y que estaba decepcionado del trato, y me dijo que si no me sentía a gusto, la puerta era muy grande, y pues decidiremos marcharnos sin cenar, ya que era muy tarde para conseguir mesa para celebrar nuestro aniversario… NO RECOMIENDO ESTE RESTAURANTE EN ABSOLUTO PARA NADA!! We arrived to celebrate our anniversary with my wife, and in the reservation I requested a corner table or on one side since I am in a wheelchair because that day I had chemotherapy, and when we arrived, the manager treated us very bad, He wanted to sit us at a central table where my wheelchair was in the way and made me feel uncomfortable. I told him that some friends had recommended the place to me and that I was disappointed in the treatment, and he told me that if I did not feel comfortable, the door was very big, and well, we decided to leave without dinner, since it was too late to get a table for celebrate our anniversary… I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT AT ALL!!

    Amalfi personnel always treats me and the GF as King and Queen. Our standard Appetizers are never asked for they just arrive with the sparkling water. The saliva are great and all the entrees we order are always top notch. We love goofing there every few weeks.
