Like eating at a reception hall

The food wasn't bad and wasn't great. It's a regular run of the mill Italian restaurant. With that said, I felt like I was eating at someone's wedding. The decor is like a reception hall and I think they actually have a hall for rent in the lower level of the building. "I didn't want to say... read more

I really wish I could give a better review of this place but having the lights turned off on us at 8:30 as we were finishing our wine really left a bad taste in our mouths. The tab was $230 for the three of us and the sign indicated they were open till 9. I've dined in establishments that don't... More

Visited this establishment based on a recommendation from a family member. Atmosphere, service and food were very good. The staff was very attentive to our needs while I dined with my girlfriend. Some items were a bit pricey, but the meals were definitely appealing. Would patronage again, but not a priority on my list. Worth a visit.

We had a great time last night for my birthday dinner. We were a party of 4. Our waiters, Michael and Anthony, were wonderful. They had an excellent knowledge of the menu, gave great recommendations and were a pleasure all evening. Michael was especially engaging and personable. The hostess really needs to smile more and be more welcoming. I would... More

Visited Villa Amalfi and enjoyed the friendliness of our server and the entrees were tasty with ample portions. The evenings entertainers were very nice. Unfortunately, the unprofessional behavior of the hostess brought down our group. One of our party mistakenly thought villa Amalfi was a byob and asked to have his bottle of wine open. The server went to comply... More

Had a great meal with a party of 10. Great service and the food was even better. Pricey but worth it. We shared the rack of lamb as an appetizer along with mushrooms, sausage and the calamari. Entrees were incredible, we had many of the specials, including boar (incredible), Veal chops, porterhouse and osso buca, some had the pasta dishes.... More

We dined there on Friday night Oct 24, 2014. The food was amazing, and the service was suburb. We had Mozzarella & Roasted Peppers as an appetizer. Then shared a Salad Special similar to a Waldorf...it was great. For dinner I had: Spezzatino di Pollo alla Calabrese: Morsels of chicken breast sauteed in white wine, garlic, artichokes and mushroom, finished... More

Our party of 4 dined there on in September for dinner. Just about everything on our plates was inedible or had no (and I mean no, flavor). The walnut, apple and cheese salad was pathetic...no lettuce, just cabbage and hardly any cheese and NO flavor at all..same for the stuffed mushrooms--NO taste at all, filled with just breadcrumbs???...and we all...
