This was a bad dining experience that is getting worse in retrospect. The servers were inattentive, standing around and talking while we were waiting to give someone our order. We wound up ordering drinks and our meal at the same time. Everything took longer than...More

Always love going to this place. The octopus and tirokafteri appetizers are a must have. I have had most of their pastas by now, and have never been disappointed. Service had always been good too. Been here for business as well as casual lunches.

Now billing themselves as "sustainable Mediterranean," Amali has a menu of appetizers, small plates and entrees.

Wonderful menu choices with super fresh ingredients, thoughtfully combined. You can feel good about stepping outside your normal eating boundaries without thinking you've gone to Weirdville. Really interesting wine list and other drinks! Such pleasant and efficient service. Terrific value in NYC.
