Great food. Well executed.

My wife and I have eaten here 3 times. Every meal we ate was a solid 4 star. Ambience is somewhat tough. Very small, a little chilly in winter time, but acceptable. Service is a solid 4 star. Bottom line: For us at least, always a good choice for dinner.

Went with friends. Great BYOB and great food. Service staff was attentive without being intrusive. Soups and appetizers were well done and set the right tone for the evening. This place is small, which adds to its cozy atmosphere - but it does make handling larger groups a challenge. Make reservations in advance as Armani's is known as a great... More

I believe it is safe to say that Amani's has become our favorite spot for dinner for my wife and I. To be able to have such amazingly prepared food so close to our home is the best. Our most recent evening was no less amazing. Every time we visit, we leave talking about how we can't wait to go... More

Want a quiet place with great service and even better food? You'll find it here. Wonderful ambiance, attentive staff, and you don't have to buy wine at restaruant places. Highly recommended!

Been to Amani's dozens of times over the years. Seems to have changed a bit. With seatings now it is very crowded and this tends to make for difficult dinner conversation. Be careful when reserving your table and be sure to ask for something intimate. Food is always delicious, but pricey for the atmosphere. Service staff is, as always, excellent.

Four of us went to celebrate a birthday and shared everything; most everything was fabulous. We began with the cheese tray, excellent choices of cheese. We had 4 appetizers: the pork belly was the crowd favorite with well seasoned polenta, spicy sweet potato base, pork prepared perfectly, topped with a crunchy slaw. The beet salad was excellent. The cheese and... More

The food here is always excellent. We have eaten here a dozen times - usually for family celebrations - and have never been disappointed. The head chef/owner seems to come up with a twist on an an otherwise standard entree (like salmon) that makes it memorable. The kitchen staff has always executed to perfection. Service is attentive and pleasant. The... More
