Tasty cuisine, but, oh, the noise!

I recently dined here with my husband and another couple. Our waiter was eager to please and mentioned that the chef could adjust menu items to our liking (e.g., with/without clams or mussels, etc.). All menu items were spot on! Arugula salad had a lovely lemon dressing that I wanted to sop up... read more

The restaurant has nice appointments. My girlfriend and I had the early bird special which included soup or salad, glass of wine, entrée, coffee and dessert. She had the eggplant parm which she said was very good. I had the veal parm which was very tender. The bread was also very good. For dessert they gave us tiramisu. Since I... More

Evening out spent dining at Villa Amalfi, party of 4. It was my 1st visit and I truly enjoyed the food & atmosphere. It is a busy restaurant so be sure to make a reservation. We arrived for our 5:45 PM reservation and the place was empty. By 6 PM there was not an empty table in the dining room.... More

Pasta's are great, osso bucco is EXCELLENT. People I went with said it was the best calamari they've ever had. Have never had anyone unhappy with their... More

We were invited to dine here by my mother-in-law, who lives in the area and assured us it was a local favorite. Easy to see why! The decor and ambiance were upscale, the service impeccable and the authentic Italian dishes were excellent. Will definitely be back next time we are in this area.

If you are Italian or which that you were this is the place to eat. Sit back relax like you are in Italia. From the minute you walk in and sit you are greeted like family. Our waitress was Maria...she did a fantatic job of ensuring our meal met expectations. See photos. Will return again and again.

The stuffed mushrooms had six per order and stood 2 inches tall. We ordered the antipasto di mare was very disappointed. Two peices scallop three mussels three stuffed clams... More

Great restaurant, Big portions and service was nice. A bit pricey but worth it if you have the money.
