Food is just so, so. It used to be so much better before the expansion. Has a bit of an identity problem. The bar is hopping with a happy crowd. Friendly service but almost chain restaurant sterile.

This local Italian eatery has good food at very reasonable prices. The bar is lined with TV screens, all showing sports and news (targeting mostly men). Salads are good and ample. Service is good and the place can accommodate large groups. Great local place.

Have not been to Amalfi's for quite some time. Probably since they closed the Liquor store. Service was always good and today was no exception. Ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. Quite good. Sandwich was out quickly. I would definitely stop for lunch again.
