Service was very slow. Waiter did not seem knowledgeable. Waiter neglected to bring the side of pasta that the menu indicated came with each entree. Bottom of manicotti shells were rubbery, however the filling was tasty. I’ve had better Italian. The house Pinot noir was average.

My family and I enjoyed Amelia’s. The ambiance was really nice, but the service was a little slow. The food, however was authentic and delicious.

We went for a New Year's Eve dinner. We normally order wine or mixed drinks, but then I saw the "MOËT IMPÉRIAL" champaign on the menu, and had to order a bottle (we love Moet but had not tried the Imperial before). It was the best champaign I ever tasted, and I like it better than Dom Perignon.

For the dinner, I ordered the Scaloppine Francese, which was outstanding. My wife ordered a Lobster dish that was a New Year's Eve special, and she loved it.

I would definitely go back to this restaurant!

Amelia's is our favorite restaurant - bar none! It's our go-to restaurant for special occasions. We go for our anniversary - every year since moving to Gainesville in 2005, pre or post attendance at The Hipp, and whenever we have family or friends in from out of town. Chef Andy does a spectacular job with the menu and the overall atmosphere and ambience. The Grouper I had last week was the best I have ever had while my wife had her "every time we go" lobster ravioli. Thanks. See you in 2018!

Excellent meal, attentive and friendly service, comfortable ambiance. Their house salad dressing is simple but perfectly balanced to bring out the taste of the vegetables. All of the grouper dishes looked terrific, but I chose the one with a butter sauce and capers. It was scrumptious. The chef came out to see how we were enjoying the meal. The wait staff was excellent.

Amelia’s was better than we expected. Chef Andy came out and asked if we had questions and made fabulous recommendations. We all had different food and the huge portions were great for sharing. Be sure to save room for the desserts. Each one was fantastic. Can’t wait to come back
