It was okay I was a little disappointed with the food this time but in general it was ok I will go back I will be thinking about
If you are looking for good Italian food in the neighborhood at reasonable prices where you aren’t sitting on top of the diners next to you and you can have a conversation, this is the place!
Great atmosphere. Would bring clients here & would recommend to anyone
Perfect restaurant for Valentine's dinner. Excellent food, superb service and tables for two can be found in all sorts of private nooks.
Consistently superb. An absolutely perfect neighborhood place. Highly recommended.
Food was fantastic, with a large selection of entrees.
Everyone was very friendly.
Would definitely return.
Consistently good. We enjoy the food, the great martinis, and attentive and gracious service.
Consistently good. Almost perfect in every way. We love it!
Great place for a relaxed dinner. Food was excellent, as was the service. Nice ambiance.
Great food, service and ambiance. Very wortthwhile.
Wine List is very expensive. They should have more wines by the bottle in the $40-50 range.
Soup and entree special, Red snapper, were warm, not hot as they should have been. Veal parmigiana was good. Service was mediocre. Had to ask more than one time for grated cheese, no additional water poured despite empty glasses, felt ignored and neglected. Will not rush back!
Great service, food prepared to specifications
Very good cuisine. Fresh fish always. Great martinis. Great service.
Amata never disappoints. Which is why my friends and I are repeat customers. And we can be counted on to continue to be repeat customers with going forward.

Lovely evening Great service. Cozy without being crammed. Six in our party and everyone’s meal was delicious. It couldn’t of been better
Lovely ambiance, good food, nice background music and warm, caring service. We love it!
Amata has developed into one of the most professionally operated, high quality Italian restaurants in Manhattan, thanks to consistently delicious food, outstanding hospitality and warm, flexible, competent service. A neighborhood favorite with a devoted constituency in a space that defeated earlier restaurants. The classics are done beautifully and the market-driven specialties keep the menu ingeresting. Party space for 12-50 is a definite plus.
Good selection of quality food. The most memorable part of the evening was the excellent pace of service, polite, attentive and no rush. The restaurant was quiet so we could talk to our family. Food was very good to good. I enjoyed my veal but my wife said she had two shrimp in her pasta dish that was highlighting shrimp.
What a great find. Amata is delicious. The menu has a number of things on it which are unusual, which makes it a fun evening. If you don't see what you like, they will make it for you. The tables are well spaced so that the noise level is low (despite the dining room being full) and conversations are private. Prices are fair. Service can get busy, but not so much as to be annoying. I am in a wheelchair and there is ample room to maneuver around. I am looking forward to my next visit.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant. Service and food excellent. Will definitely return!!
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we would definitely go back. The atmosphere was great and the food was amazing.
Outstanding cuisine, professional management and service, warm, welcome. Amata is a neighborhood mainstay.
Excellent food and service
Amata never disappoints. The owner is a wonderful man and his demeanor is reflected in every person who works there. The staff is always, friendly, attentive, accommodating and all around nice. The food is very fresh and consistently delicious. Fabulous bread too!!
Service was nonexistent. Food is bland.
Great food. Gracious service. Wonderful atmosphere.
As usual, both food and service were outstanding. This is consistent each time we come to Amata. We will continue to dine here.
Great selection of Italian food with great atmosphere.
Service was excellent, as was the food. The owner Chris stopped by to chat. We came to celebrate our move to Manhattan. We will be back.
Excellent and authentic Italian food in an area without much beyond tourist traps and super high end options
Outstanding as always.
A professionally operated, first-class Italian restaurant of reliable quality and welcoming atmosphere.
Fantastic little eatery. Smaller portions are fresh and delicious. Atmosphere was intimate and noise was at a minimum.A+
Amata was a good choice to meet friends from out of town during the week. Food was good, service excellent, tables spread apart so we could catch up. If I have to go back to the east side I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
