I have eaten at Villa Amalfi twice in the past 3 months. Both times the food was very good. The service is excellent - the waiters know exactly what they are doing. The bus staff, water, bread, etc. is also peerless - these guys are well-trained. The focaccia bread is to die for! If they put cheese on top, this... More

Villa Amalfi is a gem of a restaurant in Toms River. Traditional Italian food not found in most restaurants. Very clean and attentive staff. Full bar, no byob. You will not be disappointed here!

I had my retirement dinner with my family and friends at the Villa Amalfi in Toms River, NJ in October, 2013. It was the best Italian festive dinner that welcomed my retirement better. Although sad to leave after serving 27 years, I was excited to enjoy the final dinner. Villa Amalfi concierge and staff made my dinner most welcome and... More

From the second we entered the door we should have turned around. No one greeted us and when we were approached we were told "we have a liquor license". When we were finally shown to a table, we didn't receive menus for 15 minutes. Another 20 minutes went by before we were approached for our order. The bread finally arrived... More

A beautiful setting for a birthday celebration. White tablecloths, well-trained wait staff and an eclectic menu. For those whose choice is not Italian (but very good) the rack of lamb and osso buco are delicious.

This is my husband's and my favorite restaurant in Ocean and Monmouth County. The food and service is on par with what we have had in Italy. We have had private dinners downstairs as well as used their catering menu for holiday parties. They use the best ingredients and make an excellent marinara sauce. Try the apple walnut salad, the...

When this Pizza place owner realized the popularity of Il Giardenello he sold the Pizza business & opened this upscale Italian Restaurant. Most people come here for the distinct service and the food. A bit more quiet, as well.

Stopped in en route to another destination. Party of five, seated immediately. it took a while for our server to take the orders. It also took a while for the drinks, appetizers and dinners to be delivered, too. Honestly, it took our waiter quite a while to do anything. Dinner, without dessert, took about 2 hours. The place was not... More
