Amelia's!

Great service and atmosphere. The food was wonderful! Our daughter is a picky eater and she ate her entire meatball sandwich. We will go again during our stay here.

This small and cozy restaurant on Balboa Island had wonderful service and great food. The scallops and linguini dish was particularly tasty. Parking can be a challenge on this crowded area of the island.

I am not sure how this place gets so many good ratings. I should have left after the salad course. The place is dated inside but I was hopeful this was one of those amazing places as they boasted made in house ravioli.The staff was nice but the food was terrible. I had the salad - probably it was out... More

A casual, but very European ambiance is what you can expect from the Balboa Island restaurant. The traditional italian menu is mixed with great seafood flare, the wine list was on good and well priced. Wonderful French bread and butter just kept on coming and the food was inexpensive and delicious, the wait staff was friendly and created an outstanding... More

Let me start by saying what a quaint restaurant! Truly Italian in every sense of the word. The house chianti was delicious and reasonably priced. I had the seafood pescatore it was delicious and the portion was large. My husband had the special scallops and lobster ravioli. It was devine! It decor is just what you would see in Italy... More

We found this restaurant on Balboa Island, a quick walk from the Hyatt - and in a very nice neighborhood. The food was quite good, the wine list was good and very affordable - but best of all- the wait staff was great in accommodating the challenging food restrictions of one of my friends. It was a great choice

Four person Family was divided--between seafood and Italian, so this restaurant was perfect. The service was immediate from drinks to bread to salads to dinners. When the soft drinks were low, refills appeared. The bread was good, and warm. The longest delay was us trying to decide WHAT to get. SO, got 3 fish sampler, sample (triple) of the Italian... More

We only get out to Amelia's 1x a year on vacation and we make it our first dinner when we arrive. We cannot begin our vacation without our dinner at Amelia's. Over the years (and I mean years), the service, pricing, and food has never given us cause to change our habit. We expect to be back to Amelia's in... More
