It was my partners birthday treat - a weekend in Bournemouth to catch a show at BIC, and dinner out in this restaurant. The food was superb and we were looking forward to eating there again, so were gutted to hear of the closure. We would have travelled down just to eat there again. We so hope they find alternative...

We love this place. Have been coming since it opened more than 20 years ago. Are gutted to hear it is closing due to the demolition of the hotel it is situated in. Last meal there will be tonight. Very sad occasion.

The family enjoyed the pasta meal while I really enjoyed the trout in mushrooms and wine.The decor and atmosphere was very nice. The waiters were a bit abrupt but that's the Italian way. I heard this is the last month of this restaurant. A pity.

The restaurant seemed to be in the basement area of the Wessex Hotel, and I don't recall seeing any windows to the outside world. The staff were attentive, but were not over-friendly. The food was okay - I would recommend the bruschetta starter, which was really good. I also had the seafood spaghetti dish, which promised, I believe, scampi, which... More

Dinner in the evening for our party of 10 was at a restaurant called Amalfi in the basement of the Wessex hotel. Service was friendly and eager. The meal was quite good - basically Italian - with everyone choosing something different. I had cream of broccoli soup followed by salmon steak in a tomato based cream. The cream rather overwhelmed... More

We have dined in this lovely restaurant before and returned again and everything about it is absolutely excellent. Friendly waiters and waitress. The food is delicious. Our steaks were cooked exactly as we liked. We had our evening dinners on 3 occasions as we enjoyed this restaurant so much. The prices are very reasonable for both food and drinks. We... More

Next door to the Wessex Hotel there's a sign for this restaurant, so it's not so much hidden but probably overlooked by the hotel residents and passers by, who could be forgiven for thinking (as we did) that the Amalfi was connected to the hotel, other than by its sharing of the building. Having failed to secure a table at... More
