We were visiting New York and staying in a nearby hotel. Found Amata on Open Table and could not have been happier with that choice. The restaurant is very comfortable, the service was excellent and friendly and the food outstanding. We shared a calamari appetizer. The calamari were lightly breaded, which is how we like them. I had the bolognese and my husband had the veal Francesca. We saved room for a cannoli and the profiteroles. Will definitely be on our “go back to” list when we return to NYC>

I have eaten here before & enjoyed it a lot. Unfortunately, our meal for 3 of us was mediocre at best. The service was good, but didn’t make up for the food.

Quiet on a Monday evening, service a bit slow, but waiter was friendly and gave good suggestions, appetizers were very good (clams oreganata, real clams and not chopped up meat mixed with bread crumbs) and the entries were also solid - a seafood pasta that my wife thought excellent and the ravioli that was fine, a somewhat gloopy cream sauce notwithstanding. Pleasant chat with the owner after dinner, a lifer in the restaurant business. We enjoyed and would return as its walking distance for us.

Amata is the BEST. Truly is my midtown favorite! Chris Andrew and Jose do an amazing job. Excellent food, and fantastic service. They make us feel at home every time we are there. We will be back!

We love this neighborhood gem. The staff are very personable yet professional. Some favorite dishes are the crab salad, chicken and/or veal parm and sorrentino, salmon and many pasta choices. The ambiance is relaxing and upscale. We are so thankful that Amata survived the pandemic!

We had a fun and delicious meal of authentic Italian specialties. The restaurant was very busy, but the service was great. Also, i think they must have the nicest (and cleanest) bathrooms in NYC, LOL! A must-visit!
