Good food; good vibe

We went there during our short visit to Amherst to our family. We were visiting from San Francisco. Total people in our party was five. The food was very good; truly of Mediterranean style: not oily, not over cooked, not spicy, not buttery or creamy; yet very flavorful. We had their daily... read more

Martin and Maritza have a new deal for Wednesday nites... $30 a plate (for a smaller virsion) of everything on the menu. You get a salad, an entré and a small canolini. We've enjoyed Martin's and Maritza's hospitality since Martin worked with Damien! Truly a gentleman and a great chef himself. This has always been the top of the line... More

Typically this restaurant gets rated tops in the area, but is a little over-rated; having said that you will have a very tasty pleasant night out here. Need reservations!

We took our niece and her husband here for dinner - had swordfish and risotto, with canoli for dessert. The service and food were excellent, and we happened to be there on the night that they offer any salad, and any entree (except the large steak) for $30, wit the small canoli free. Very good food, nice atmosphere though a... More

Not good but GREAT! Bistecca with honey goat cheese and vodka sauce - the special of the night. Ask for Liza as a server.

This Italian restaurant has very well prepared food. The cannelloni were exceptionally good. The shrimp linguini dish was also very good. The smaller portions offered matched our senior citizen appetites well. However, the service staff do not match the quality of the food and the noise level is high. Retraining the staff is possible, but the hard surfaces in the... More

We showed up on a Tuesday night and unbeknownst to us, a special was underway (as mentioned by our delightful host Jacquie, and bar manager Steven. We had a scallop appetizer,... More

Zuppa di pesce was on the the online menu but, since they just changed the menu yesterday, it wasn't on the menu when I visited there tonite. But the bartender (Steve) asked the chef if he could make it.....and he did. And it was fabulous! And they also had a wonderful Carmenere red wine by the glass. A wonderful Italian... More

Having travelled to Hadley on numerous occasions I have wanted to dine at Alina's, we had a late dinner there and found everything to be exceptional. The scallop appetizer was wonderful as were all of the entrees, marvelous service.

We visited Alina's last Saturday night. It was amazing! Beautiful atmosphere with excellent piano music to add to the ambiance. From the scallop appetizer to our sirloin and veal entrees, everything was perfectly prepared, presented, and delicious. Service was very attentive as one would expect from fine dining. It was worth the trip from New Hampshire and we will definitely... More
