Wonderful Evening

Dined here recently with some friends and we had a wonderful time. Seated promptly even though it was crowded and had our drinks within minutes. Everyone really enjoyed the antipasto appetizer. My pasta was cooked perfectly and had just the right amount of sauce. We will going back soon!

I just returned from dinner there. I had to write something as the food and service was just not good--it was perfect. As always. There are not many places I can say that about. The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing, perfectly sauced and accompanied by a wonderfully creamy risotto and tender but crisp asparagus. Everyone at my table remarked at... More

Hit this restaurant before 4:45 and do the early bird. It comes with a glass of wine and the food is great. I love the Wild Boar but have tried many others and all were wonderful.

I can't say one thing wrong or that I didn't like. It was a wonderful experience. My family and friends loved it as well.

Food was very good to excellent. There were many interesting dinners to choose from. Waiter we had was very good. Everyone was very accommodating. Great table and window view. Some tables are a little too close together.

Veal cutlet was terrible, not fresh, macaroni not cooked. The veal chop was good but more bone and fat then anything else. I will not return.

My husband, my mother and I went here last Sunday night. My mother had been there three previous times, for my husband and I, it was our first time. We got there around 4:30, and there was a large party leaving. We were seated and there was a woman singing and a man playing a keyboard. We noticed another party,... More

This was a second time at this restaurant. Each time we had an enjoyable dinner but it was because who we were with and not the restaurant. Looks nice. Staff are somewhat attentive but I get the feeling that they have bette things to do in the back. Both times, we ordered wine and we had to pour our own... More

Went for dinner at Villa Amalfi, the atmosphere and staff were very good. However, next time I will be specific as to how much sauce I want on my dinner. Two of us at the table ordered francese and it was floating almost floating and one of us ordered a marsala dish which was also saucy.

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 basement". I brought... More
