Great pasta

Typical neighborhood Italian restaurant. Food was traditional, wasn't trying hard to be something creative, and executed very well - which is just fine by me. My wife and I (mid/late 40s) were on average 20-30 years younger than all the other patrons. Not exactly a hot spot - which is also just fine by me, as the place was quiet and we had a delicious, relaxed meal being able to have a conversation without yelling across the table. The service was attentive . Great place to go for a relaxed neighborhood dinner.

Wonderful! We wanted something non-touristy and Amata delivered. We weren’t rushed, the Caesar salad was one of the best we ever had, and the meatball appetizer... whoa! We will be surely return!

We arrived very early during we were only diners. Hard to tell noise level. Service was very good. Owner stopped at table which was very nice. Prices for drinks high but it is Manhattan.

The staff was friendly and attentive. Food was tasty and plenty of options. It was my niece's birthday, and they surprised her with fun dessert complete with firecracker candle and some singing. Would definitely go back...for both the food and the ambiance!

Had a party of six and was expecting a great dinner.
We waited 15 minutes for a server. Really most of the night never had a real server at our table.
Only after we hunted a server. We were told our server was very busy with a large party.
Some of the food was ice cold like it never made the stove.
The crab had a bad fishy taste like it was over the date or been in water.
After sending the crab back they still put it on the check.
All the food was just average or below or just not worth going back to this restaurant.
I can only say a 5 out of 10 for Amata.

Absolutely fantastic. Six of us had dinner and everyone’s food was fantastic. The service was great. We had a wonderful evening with great food, great wine and terrific host. Italian menu has all the favorites plus innovation and every appetizer, main course and dessert we ordered was exquisite . Our new favorite.

Our second Christmas Eve in a row for special family dinner. We enjoy the cozy dining room and friendly service. The special menu is extensive, and their regular menu has some favorites. We especially enjoyed the zucchini flowers appetizer and the branzino. We assured Chris we'll be back before next year!
