All the waitstaff that we came in contact with very friendly . The food was delicious.My husband had the steak and said it was very tender and loved the vegetables that were served with it.I had Sea Bass that also was delicious. So happy that the new owners are turning this around."

  • "We went for Valentines dinner we had a reservation for 7:30 and arrived right on time And we were seated right away. Thats wherr the good service ended. We were taken to a small bar table and whem i complained We were told we would have to wait until 10:00 pm for a normal sized table. We made due with the table even when our plates were over lapping and pushing tthe cheesecakehe others down if i used a knife to cut something. The music was to loud to hear each other and when we asked for coffee to go with the cheesecake it never arrived. I would not take a date to this place. Lastly, the food was just ok."

  • "My second visit. Pizza was excellent, with a light, crispy crust. The other food was quite average. However, with all the hard wall and ceiling surfaces, the noise was deafening. There was live music in the bar, so the diners had to speak loudly at each other to be heard. The result was unpleasant. Even had trouble conversing with our server. I would come back for the pizza, but only during off hours, when it's quieter."

  • "We were staying at the Boulders and looking for a place for a nice dinner. Found this on open table and the reviews looked great. Don't be fooled by "Pizzeria" in the restaurant name. It was so much more. We had the meatballs as an appetizer - they melted in your mouth and had such a delicious flavor. We then had the veal piccata and cedar plank pork chop. Again delicious. Wish we lived closer so we could return!"

  • "The reviews we read for Amaro lead us to this restaurant. Our wait person was very poor. We had to ask for a wine menu at a "wine bar", it took forever to get bread (which was the equivalent to something from the grocery store), and she seemed to not know what she was doing. My husband's veal piccata was good while my chicken parm was probably the worst I have had. It is 2 HUGE pieces of chicken with marinara that has no flavor, neither does the chicken. The pasta was so overcooked that it was mushy. We heard another guest send their food back because it was cold.We were not offered coffee or a dessert menu. A person (manager?) stopped by our table to ask how our dinner was, when I replied "not so good", she responded with an "oh" and left."

  • "First dinner I've had here under the new owners and it was as good as I remember. My friend and I split the kale house salad which was awesome and I had the pork chop and loved it. She had the shrimp scampi and loved it as well. Dan Emrey was playing who I love and we had a nice time. Thanks"

  • "The service was excellent. Had the freshly-made pasta with clams in white wine sauce - excellent! Sea bass was also excellent as was the bread. Good wine list. Happy to discover they have live music! Will be back."
