"Italy, it's closer than you think." Founded by Moe Sr. in 1977 Amalfi is a True Family Owned & Operated Restaurant. We are a very hands on family that take pride in doing all the work ourselves and strive to have the very best restaurant in town. Moe Jr. is the head chef, Johnny is the General Manager, Teresa hosts and overlooks the operation. Moe Sr. and Teresa started Amalfi in February 1977 when Moe Jr. was only two years old and Johnny hadn't even been born yet. Now over 40 years later the two sons are in control and have taken Amalfi to the next level. We have now upgraded all of our meats to all natural products from local farms. From free range chicken to milk fed veal, even our sausage is all natural. Almost all of our pasta is handmade on premises and we've gotten rid of practically all dishes made in batches so now our meals are made to order to ensure optimal freshness and quality. Come in and see why they say, "Once you visit Amalfi, you may never leave!"

Food is always good. The ambiance is very outdated. The silverware and dishes are quite old and very commercial. The area is less than chic. I doubt that they pay much in rent. In fact, they probably own the property. The area is less than chic. I doubt that they pay much in rent. In fact, they probably own the property. One major problem is the entrance.It is very dangerous. The door opens onto a very short step.. One step is very small - actually a half step. The other is a full step. I do to know how the ADA laws have not required that Amalfi have this fixed.

Good, home style Italian. Servings big enough for take home leftovers. Friendly service. Noisy, but not overwhelmingly so.

We enjoy this restaurant for it's old fashion (perhaps dated to some) family ambiance and good southern Italian food. On this occasion it turned out to be a good choice for a gathering with old friends who were visiting from out of town. I was disappointed that they did not offer many meatless specials for Good Friday, but we found enough shrimp and calamari to meet our needs. I especially appreciated that we were able to linger while conversing with our friends--we seemed to be the last people there when when we left at about 9:30 pm. I would not hesitate to return, because I am OK with a restaurant in an industrial park that offers good food and service at reasonable prices.

The owner/host is somewhat loud while welcoming guests. I am regular and find his words somewhat repetitive and a little disingenuous. The food is outstanding.

Haven't been to Amalfi's in many years and see they have their loyal following. I was not a fan of their food but the staff was very nice. My salad was great but the main dish was not as flavorful as it could have been. So, bottom line: nice menu with a lot of variety but our main dishes were not so tasty.

Yummy! Two of us had the pasta with sausage and vegetables (I brought half of mine home). Hubby had the date and something salad , big enough for two and the lasagna, which he always gets. Friend had eggplant parm and she polished it off. Bread basket included a few varieties. all in all, a good place. We were in the front room, the one closest to the door, and once it was filled it was a little bit noisy but not unbearable.

We have loved Amalfi's for a long time. The food is delicious. The reason we give it a lower rating on value is that the portions are a bit small and everything is a la carte. Would be nice to have a small salad included with the entrees, for example.

Amalfi's has been in business for 41 years and I have been going there for that long. It is in an out-of-the-way location but the food is consistently fabulous. Jeremy is a fabulous waiter and Johnny is always happy and jovial when he greets you. Excellent, excellent meal.

Amalfi is a local fave. Been there many times, never had a bad meal. The wait staff is excellent--very attentive. The bread is fresh, butter is homemade as is the pasta and sauces, free range chicken is succulent. Salads are fresh and interesting. Portions are generous.

We are always pleased with our visit to this family owned establishment. The son/now owner always greets us with a smile and enthusiasm and the roasted red peppers, white pizza, Cesar salad and branzino never fail! The wine menu could use a revamp to better compliment the dishes served, but other than this we have zero complaints and will always come back!

What a great find! We found this restaurant on Yelp (4 stars, many reviews) and it didn't disappoint. We are new to the area and now we have a go-to for Italian! The pasta is homemade and fresh, and the tomato sauce is homemade too! Try the fennel salad and kale salad, really nice. The pasta al pomodoro is a must, the sauce is very authentic to Italy. I have also had the bacon carbonara special twice (with the made from scratch garganelli) and it never disappoints. Only one critique for the calamari, it was just okay, still acceptable but I wouldn't order it again, just because there are too many other good things on the menu...but everything else is awesome! Prices are reasonable and waitstaff are awesome! Go here!

I have been eating at Amalfi's for years and years. It had always been a favorite spot and the food and service was without question. The last couple of times, things have changed. This might be our final visit. I went Sunday evening with my daughter for a birthday dinner. We saw our waitress exactly 3 times. When she took our order, when she served our food, and when she brought the check. The whole ambiance was lacking. A guy at the next table had a fire department scanner blasting through the entire meal. The water glass was dirty, the table was small and cramped. The white pizza was delicious, but the veal parm was very thick and chewy. We felt really ignored the entire evening..to make it worse, the waiter who has been there forever (Michael?) was so friendly and outgoing with his table, I felt like we were intruding on a private party.
