I heard a lot about this place so I tried it and was disappointed. I ordered the wild boar and when I received it covered in brown mushroom gravy over a bed of white rice. The meat was more like short ribs and did not taste like pork. The food was not hot. Service was OK. This place is not... More

I was very surprised on how wonderful the meal I had was at the Retirement Party held at Villa Amalfi. Our tables had red and white wine along with a champagne toast. Antipasto was served first with bread and butter. Then came a pasta course of ziti. Followed by a salad. My main entree was chicken masala with rosemary oven... More

We had our wedding reception dinner here in 2014 and have been there a couple of times since. Food and service are excellent.....worth the money for your special occasion.

Our party of three dined at Villa Amalfi 2 weeks ago, mid Oct., for a birthday dinner. Yes, it was Saturday & crowded ( we had a reservation). The shrimp that two in our party had were not good. They had that strong iodine taste, yuk. I had pasta and it was very good. The service was not good at... More

Food is always on point, service excellent. Ambiance is sub par. Very convenient, close to home, and usually not a long wait for a table.

We reserved a table for 22 people and I just have to say how impressed I was with the service. In addition to the regular menu, they offer an expansive list of specials and our waitress announced every one with out looking at any notes. The specials were all awesome. We sampled many appetizers and they were very good as... More

This is a very good restaurant. Food was mostly delicious, with a few standouts and a few disappointments. The caprese salad with homemade buffalo mozzarella was among the best I've ever tasted! Delicious steaks, veal and chicken dishes. Caesar salad had very thick dressing and was nothing special. Baked clams just "ok". Service was very good as well. Friendly and... More

The food here was definitely not worth eating let alone the price. Yes with the sunset menu you get a free glass of wine but does not compensate for the dried out, untasty meal. I gave it a 2 only because the salad was good.
