Excellent Italian food - interesting, well-prepared, high quality, and not so easy to find at most restaurants. Good wine selection and pleasant setting. Highly recommend.

As always food amazing! Great staff Ashley and Zack are wonderful. They are so friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine selection. My husband and I are big foodies and this is one of our favorites not just for the food but the staff as well. I forgot the barmaid/ waitress name but she makes a great chocolate martini and a fabulous great gatsby!

Unquestionably the best restaurant in Beacon. Enjoyed a delicious suckling pig, of all things. Love being able to enjoy grappa at the end of the meal with dessert.

It had been a while but decided to visit Cafe Amarcord once again with some friends and glad we did. The bar was great offering a nice selection of specialty drinks and a bartender that was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter Zack was great; on top of things without rushing us. We shared two orders of the special homemade Butternut Squash Ravioli and they were fabulous. The menu has lots to offer and the specials offered were great. All four of us ordered something different; pork chop, rib-eye steak, veal chop & bronzino and the meals were one better than the next. The presentation was amazing and the food was absolutely delicious. We'll be back for sure!

We had a lovely appetizer and dessert, and my husband's tuna was very good. My red snapper (a special) was overcooked, and smothered in too much tomato sauce (with potatoes, bock choy, and olives.) The tomato sauce overwhelmed the fish. Amacord has a nice cozy ambience and very attentive, kind service. However, the noise level was pretty harsh. There were a couple of tables for of very boisterous, loud talkers. I don't want to complain about people enjoying themselves, but I do want to warn other guests that the noise level can be pretty annoying.

Food and wine were delicious. Wait staff was very attentive and others helped as well. It didn’t matter who you asked for another glass of wine and it was brought immediately. We had 3 different entrees between the 4 of us which were all superb. Salads and soups were great as well.

Dined with my daughter and grandson this past Sunday after reading the reviews! Food and service(Zach) were excellent Calamari and the pork sausage appetizers were so fresh and tasty. The carrot soup had an authentic vegetable broth base and delectable creaminess. We had the rib eye steaks and they were so good, it would have been insulting to put steak sauce on them! Coffee was distinctively good and both deserts we chose were excellent-the coffee/chocolate layer cake”Opera” and the Caramel Delight. Zack ensures that we has a delightful dining experience!

A very cozy place. The food choices are all so tempting. My boys had the veal chop with mascarpone mashed potatoes and raved about it. I had the grilled calamari appetizer. It was so tender and flavorful.
The homemade pasta is delicate and delicious as well. The branzino is also a reliable choice for a great fish dish!

As usual the dinner at Café Amarcord was excellent. Unfortunately there was a party of nine very loud people that came in and was sitting directly across from us. It wasn’t the restaurants fault these people would just loud. The manager did offer us a drink in Lieu of an apology but it was snowing and we were driving.

Cafe Amaracord is our go to restaurant in Beacon. It is about a 45 minute drive for us and for friends who live in the opposite direction and we’ve always had a lovely service, excellent choice and very good food there.
