The restaurant is directly
The restaurant is directly adjacent to the Acme Comedy Theatre so if you're going to a show there, it's ideal. I had the Fennel and Arugala salad which was amazingly good. The chicken parmigiana was good, not great. My date had a salad which was excellent. The truffle fries were very very good.

Could be our new fav place!
Wonderful wonderful wonderful!!!!!! We had such a great time at Amalfi, I can't believe we hadn't been there before. We were going to a show at the ACME Theater and they had a deal with Amalfi. The food is really great - the tuna tar tar is amazing and the mushroom risotto was, holy cow, unbelievable!!!! The service was great - maybe that had to do with our server Brooke, who was so attentive and nice. : ) We will be going back FOR SURE ACME show or not.

Booked a table for dinner prior to a late night show upstairs in Room 5. The service and food were both great and I would go back any time I could, especially if there was live music upstairs after (pay on the door upstairs).

Went for the Adam Carolla
Went for the Adam Carolla podcast which was a blast. Food was great, too which was a pleasant surprise.

I had never been to amalfi before and didn't have high expectations - I've found that majority of italian restaurants in LA serve decent, but not excellent, pasta. I was pleasantly surprised - had the pasta bolognese - it was excellent. I'd put it in the top 5 I've had in LA.
Good service, the restaurant is a little noisy and it's hard to hear people from across the table - my only complaint. Reasonable prices, very good italian food in a great spot - especially if you are going to a show at ACME or Room 5 (right upstairs.)

This is one of my favorite
This is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Awesome food, great spot for a romantic night out. My wife and I just celebrated her birthday there.

As Adam Carolla fans we had to try this place on our vacation from Florida. The staff was fantastic and friendly and the food was amazing and the white mangria with dinner was perfect. We have already recommended this to friends that live in the area as a must try. We only wish we could come back again and again with them!

Friday Night in California
We were visiting California for the first time ever and I heard about Amalfi. I made a reservation on line (super easy) and arrived on our scheduled date and time. Service was great, the waiter was helpful and attentive, but did not hover over us. The food was amazing. We started with an antipasto platter and it had a good selection of cheeses, meats, olives and peppers. The bread was warm and crusty. We were already close to stuffed by the time the entrees arrived, but we had to eat as the meal was delicious. Pumpkin ravioli was sweet and savory and the chicken pasta dish (cannnot remember the name -sorry) had a very light cream sauce that coated but did not overwhelm the chicken, asparagus or pasta. YOu MUST eat here!

Room Five Dinner
I love watching young beginning artists as they develop their craft and grow into the people we see at Nokia, Greek and elsewhere ten years later--No place is better for that then Amafli's room Five..Dinner and new talent, what a mix

Came for the music - fantastic food
We came to see a friend play upstairs but had a quick bite to eat before the show. Caesar salad with grilled chicken was perfection! My girlfriend is a vegetarian found an awesome sandwich, she enjoyed it tremendously (I can't remember what it's called). Wait staff is friendly and provided excellent (and speedy service). You just have to get past the surly hostess...

It was a birthday celebration
It was a birthday celebration for my husband. He is a fan of Adam's. The bar selection was great and the food was tasty as well. We enjoyed ourselves. Room 5 was a nice surprise as well.

Great meal with music afterwards
The meal was fantastic. We have lived in the area for a 1 year and just discovered this amazing restaurant. We had the chicken piccata special and sausage pizza-which was one of the best we've had in LA. We are VERY critical of our pizza and italian food since we are Italian and from the east coast. This pizza was one of the top in LA.
Afterwards we went upstairs to ROOM 5 (only a $10. cover) and listened to 3 different musical performances. There is a new performer every hour. It was such a fantastic evening. I would recommend this to others!!!!

Our dinner was very good.
Our dinner was very good. The Caesar salad was very good---could use a little more garlic. The pizza was most delicious, and he beverages were fine. They should ask if we had a discount, because we did and had to mention it. They never asked.

First time visiting and my
First time visiting and my one complaint is that i made reservation for 8 (one person was a no show) our intention was to celebrate the birthday of one member of our party we found out once we arrived that there is no celebration for Birthday's and no one told me when I placed two phone calls to restaurant to inform you that we would be having a birthday dinner.

Good & Bad
First the good.
The food was tasty, the service was good, and it was a fun atmosphere.
Next the bad.
I took my nephew here for his birthday and we were seated right next to a very large party. They had pulled all of the tables that would've been next to us to create one large table for the other party. Where we were seated was at the corner of the large table. Every time a server had to go by, they brushed against my nephew. It was a very strange set up and made it uncomfortable. I wanted to say something but the birthday boy insisted he didn't mind.
It just indicated a lack of thought put into guest comfort.
Having said all of that, I would probably give them another try.

I came here with my boyfriend. It was amazing. The Pumpkin Ravioli and the Crab Cakes were awesome! We were there on a Tuesday so it was half off bottles of wine, so that was rad as well. I would eat there everyday if I could :)

Ate here before a friend's performance at Room 5, upstairs. Didn't expect much. However, food was very good. Service was very good, completely without attitude and unobtrusive. Price was very reasonable for the quality of food.

We chose to eat at Amalfi
We chose to eat at Amalfi because of the Acme Theater offer. We were not disappointed. The food was very good. The Marguerita Pizza was outstanding. Perfect martini, too.

Great pasta place!
I'm kind of a creature of habit and I love the pumpkin ravioli with braised short rib! My friend got this other pasta dish: spaghetti noodles with shrimp and a light sauce that was super flavorful. I can't remember the name of the dish, but it seemed healthy but delicious. We also shared the spinach with poached pear salad. It's a favorite as well.

First time customers
We very much enjoyed our dinner at Amalfi's. All three entrees and both appetizers were excellent. Our server was both personable and attentive to our table. We would definitely go back.
