I have been here several times and always impressed with the specials presentation by the staff. They are precise and have it memorized and the fun part is the specials change all the time.Great job by the waiters in knowing the ingredients and how the presentation of the plate will be completed.when you go just stop and listen closely to...

Was greeted by the Hostess[who was having a discussion with a waiter], finally, and was escorted to a nice table facing Route 9. The Hostess gave us the "Menus", before Our Server came to us? Most unusual? After the waiter introduced himself, he then asked us if we wanted something to Drink? I inquired as to what Beers they have... More

One of our top choices for Italian food. It's a bit pricy and no byob either. The portions are very big and very delicious as well. Wish they offered couponsI'd be here a lot more. Nice for special occasions but can get loud as they do have large party tables in the dining area! Deserts lately have been disappointing though.... More

The place offers very good Italian cuisine. We can recommend the pollo scarpiello, filet mignon (special), and seafood combination entrees. The appetizers were typical of most Italian restaurants (fried calamari, salads, etc.). They offer a good wine list, and wine by the glass, starting at $6.95. The down side of this place was very slow service and a noise level... More

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.
