The food and service was outstanding. It's a little hard to find, but worth the effort.
Parking is a pain, especially for the handicapped. No easy access for someone with limited ambulation. However food and service were excellent. Owner and chef very welcoming and involved to make sure we were happy throughout, which we were. Recommend dining on a week night in order to ensure parking availability.
Chef Andy is awesome. Can't wait to go back. Thank you
Another outstanding meal at Amelia's. Andy put some excellent dishes on the table. Lobster ravioli in a soft marinara sauce, a beautiful grouper dish and of course the fine appetizers of calamari and the portabello mushrooms. Notable also was the wine list with fine wines at very reasonable prices: the best value wine list in Gainesville.
It was my birthday and chose Amelias for dinner. The meal was superb! We both ordered fish diners and both were prepared perfectly. Our server Jessica was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The ambiance was lovely and romantic. Could not gave had a better experience!
Amelia's has an extensive menu, delicious food, and great service. We dine there every time we are in Gainesville. Located directly behind the Hippodrome Theater, Amelia's is within walking distance from the theater and you don't have to move your car. Andy, the owner/chef, always comes out of the kitchen to greet his guests and will play the saxophone for special occasions.
The food and service was excellent. I would like a wider variety of wines by the glass. That is my only recommendation. I arrived early and had the restaurant to myself. The amount of attention I received was perfect.
I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or an outing with a loved one or friends. The atmosphere is comfortable situated in an area that is rather quaint.
We had another enjoyable evening at Amelia’s. The staff were great and the specials of the evening; delicious
Every time we come to the Hipprodrome Theater, we always have dinner here. We also enjoy coming here for special occasions since we live in Ocala and it is about a 40 minute drive, but it is well worth it. The food is always fabulous and very authentic Italian. We have never been disappointed with any of our experiences and neither has anyone we have brought with us or recommended. The service has always been top notch and very friendly and accommodating. It is a small space, but they manage it well.
All the food was excellent but the tortellini was the best. Service was friendly. Chef was attentive. Very enjoyable evening.
Dinner and desert was delicious! For our friend’s birthday the chef played happy birthday on sax. Very fun.
Food excellent server outstanding!!!!!
This was our 2nd visit to Amelia's. Both times the Food was Amazing, both in Taste and Quantity. It is an hour drive each way and well worth the trip. We pass many restaurants during the trip and we doubt any could compare !! Planning to make a 3rd trip in the near future. Planning on trying their Lasagna!! Enjoyed chatting with Owner/Chef Andy Fass!!!
Good calamari and tortellini alfredo! great service. Chef Andy gave his time to meet the customers and gave a personal touch to the restaurant. Great place to celebrate birthdays or anniversaries with family or friends.
good food, reasonable price, nice location and atmosphere.
Some of the best Italian food around.. And my party goes to some of the best in Boca Raton, Fl.
Fantastic, can't wait to go back.
My favorite place to eat in Gainesville Andy and his staff make it very special experience
This was our 1st time at Amelia's. We had 2 birthdays to celebrate. The food and service were excellent. Value is good. The owner is also the cook and he comes out and plays saxophone to celebrate people's birthdays! Excellent for a romantic evening, dinner with the friends or celebrating an occasion. Vegetarian friendly and very accomodating.
The food and service was exceptional! I would absolutely recommend it to everyone.
Grouper special was fantastic and any pasta dish won't disappoint.
We went with friends after Hipp play. The food was delicious. Two of us ordered one of the specials and we both thought they were delicious. We had dessert, which was great. I especially like the almond custard with cherries. Different and tasty.
Will definitely eat at Amelia's again.
Always reliably good meal and good service.
I will definitely come here again as I have been doing for years.
We spent our 50th wedding anniversary there. EVERYTHING was wonderful. Beyond our expectations
We will definitely go back even though it’s a two hour drive
Always a great dinner. Chef Andy makes every occasion a special memory.
This place was great and so was our waitress. She made recommendations based on the menu and quality of the dish and not on the price tag next to it. It was very refreshing to feel like someone was taking care of you. I would give the service a 5+ and the the food a 5+ as well.
They have the best veal marsala I have ever eaten!
We have dined at Amelias several times over the years and he never been disappointed. Management and servers are cordial, food is consistently good, and pricing is very favorable.
The food was amazing and service was excellent. We were a party of 8 and everyone was very happy with everything.
Overall the experience was quite nice, the food was tasty, and the service was welcoming. I do however have to mention that for what you are paying, the food portions were lacking.
As an Italian I am always leery about eating Italian out. But I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered cheese ravioli with red sauce. It came with a house salad which was very tasty.
If you are in Gainesville, I recommend you search this one out.
Not the easiest to find but worth it.
Wonderful food great atmosphere! I will be back soon.
Just a TERRIFIC meal...consistently real good food and real varied selection.
We drove 90 minutes to see a concert in Gainesville. I looked at Open table and was easily able to make a reservation. Open table is the best. The restaurant had ambience, a good menu and wonderful service.
Amelia's never fails to impress with their outstanding food and service. Chef and owner Andy personally greets each guest at some point during your meal making your dining experience a more intimate one than the usual "here is your food/hope you enjoy it" approach found at most restaurants. We will definitely continue to frequent Amelia's.
Had a wonderful time, wonderful meal with friends. Enjoyed the sax from Andy and treat for birthday. Great experience. Thank you.
We eat there often and are never disappointed in the quality and service.
Good meal. Felt like we were dining home in New York!!
