Went for an early Sunday dinner with my family and walked in and knew we were already on thin ice. Place hasn't been remodeled in probably 20 years. Sat down at a booth and got the menus and I think the last time the menus were printed was the last time the place was remodeled. They were very old and... More

Out for dinner on my own.. Got a seat at the bar and Enjoyed a light dinner of Mussels with Red sauce and a side of Linguini ... They have a live band and a fun and friendly crowd... and a couple of drinks...

If you are looking for a straight up good time, you will definitely enjoy this place. My fiancee and I went with group of eight and we enjoyed the fun atmosphere! The service is great! The food is average, but fits the bill! Try the steak sandwich!

We've been going to Amalfis for years and always thought it was a good place to go. We went there this week and the service and food had really improved. Service friendly and prompt, helpful staff and great food. We had the antipasto and it was delicious...super thinly slice prosciutto and cheese, olives and peppers was fantastic. Nice atmosphere, deserts... More

Family night out. We went early thought we would beat the rush, being a Saturday night. The three of us had a salad with our entree. No one liked the salad. Apparently they are pre made and refrigerated and the balsamic dressing was not really good. My husband ordered eggplant parm, the sauce tasted like someone opened a can of... More

Good food, great beers, great band, great atmosphere, service sucked. I thought the purpose of a bar is to get an occasional drink. We had to go and find our waitress who was busy tapping away on her phone. The place was not that busy but I guess the waitress felt it was more appropriate to lounge as opposed to... More

Came here with a few friends we all ordered something different. Two of us had pasta and we shared eachothers plate the sauce had no flavor to it everything was pretty bland. The food seemed all fresh but tasteless.

This place is not bad. It does suffer a bit from what I call the American red sauce Italian disease- what most people think is Italian food is so limited compared to real Italian food, but everybody loves it anyway. I had the pizza which was pretty decent with lots of toppings. One guest had the linguine with shrimp and... More
