As always, excellent Italian food prepared per order. Inside is a nice atmosphere, good ambiance.
A wonderful experience with delicious food and a tranquil atmosphere. The service is unbeatable
Great birthday dinner experience.
It was a great place for our group of doctors to connect and enjoy some time outside of the hospital.
Amelia's is one of the best Italian restaurants in Gainesville. The eggplant parmesan is the best I have ever had at any restaurant.
Servers are attentive and personable. Food is excellently prepared. The atmosphere is always friendly. Dishes tend toward the imaginative, particularly the seafood. For instance, the salmon dish we order frequently is made with sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and a sherry-basil sauce over spinach. Grouper is fresh and prepared in a variety of ways. We just like the place and drive from Ocala at least once a month.
Everyone was friendly. The food was excellent. The service was enjoyable.
Great service, amazing food, fantastic dining experience in Gainsvillle!
Meal was delicious. Service was great we well. Excellent place for dinner, but make sure you have a reservation.
Italian? Not in my book! Really not good. Cesar salad little to no taste. Soup was funky, never had pasta fagioli like that. Service and food was so slow an hour just to get our salads. The biggest disappointment was the 27 dollar veal parm! Seriously was hard to find the veal! Really just a big pile of breading that was soggy and fell of the little bit of veal and way to much sauce very little cheese and sauce was not good.
We love this place. Food thoughtfully prepared and warmly served.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone that is visiting this town and don’t know where to eat.
Its always been a delight. It's difficult to break away from ordering our favorites though. Exceptional appetizer, Veal Rollatini, and Grouper entrees. Staff and Owner-Chef Andy are very skilled and welcoming.
Fantastic food and service. The chef/owner stopped by to check on us which was a nice touch. He clearly cares about his customers. This was our first time but will not be our last. Highly recommended.
Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and resturant. The food is fresh and tasty and abundant. I wouldn't say it's flashy but good wholesome Italian food. Love the atmosphere and wait staff. I'll be back for sure.
Great food. The owner was very friendly. I would definitely visit it again!
Excellent high quality meal! Good food, attentive knowledgeable server. Excellent value! One of the best Italian meals I have had in Florida. First class!
Really fantastic food and very personal service.
Outstanding dinner, food is always exceptional. Chef Andy runs a wonderful restaurant. Our go to for any celebration or special occasion, never disappoints.
Excellent service and food was outstanding!!
The salmon was excellent! Service was exceptional!
The Italian dishes are excellent. From the veal marsala to the fettuccini Alfredo, all are prepared to old world standards. The wine selection is adequate and of course, features Italian wines which are reasonably priced.
Their specials are particularly good. The Grouper Posilipo was quite tasty. The sauce enhanced the flavor of the fish. without overwhelming it.
The chef/owner is amiable and courteously greets all the clients as time permits.
Overall, one of my favorite places to eat in Gainesville.
The ambience, food, and service were superb. Our waitress was funny and gave us time between courses so we didn’t feel rushed. We always come to Amelias for important occasions and are never disappointed!
I thought everything was great. My wife was even more impressed.
More salad would be nice. Other than that best eggplant parmesan I’ve ever had.
Exceptional food and outstanding service from Drew and India!
Our family had a graduation celebration dinner here. The service was excellent, food was delicious and the ambiance was quiet and intimate. It was a nice evening. Highly recommend.
My husband & I go to Amelia's for every celebration we can! They're the perfect place for a romantic meal. Their food is so good that I feel truly joyful eating there. Compliments to Andy, the chef! Thank you for always going above and beyond our expectations!
Amelia's is a wonderful restaurant for special events or just a great place to enjoy a quiet dinner. Chef Andy makes an effort to come out from the kitchen to greet his quests personally - making sure every person who visits Amelia's feels special and happy with their dining experience.
Best Italian dinner we’ve had in a long time! Prosciutto with melon delicious, and lobster ravioli special spectacular.
Great restaurant - very friendly and professional service. Outdoor patio dining was very pleasant. Enjoyed the great food and the 1/2 price wine bottles on Tuesday!
We enjoyed dining at Amelias. The Veal Picata was outstanding. Our server was very nice. The owner and chef came out to greet us, a nice personal touch. The service was a little slower than we would of liked but that would not deter us from going again.
Slow service not clearing old plates in a timely manner. Small cramped tables. Oil placed with bread but no pepper or salt on the table to add. Good entrees very fresh. Expected more of a well dressed dining room not cut off Jean shorts. Dinner service took about 2.5 hours. Was my first time eating here and it was just okay.
