Italian
The Amalfi Lounge, like any good restaurant, has a story- a tale of love, international relationships and a passion of Italian cuisine. The story started with their grandfather, a native of Southern Italy and resident in a small town on the Amalfi Coast. A passionate man, he was obsessed with quality and simplicity. He insisted on taking the time to prepare and enjoy food, with a philosophy of 3 ingredients is often all that's required to create a great dish. Their father, the original founder and business brain established The Godfather Pizza House back in 1990. His hard work ethic and persistence has been passed down to the third generation to take a leap forward in providing East Lancashire with a restaurant and cocktail bar.

My friend I often visit Almafi for a meal during the week or on a weekend and we are never disappointed by the food; the available selection is excellent, the food is always piping hot and beautifully presented. For me they lost one point due to their slow service, they weren't busy - so why does it take so long for food to get to the table?! Also the waitress was is such a hurry that she put the incorrect amount in the pay terminal, I asked if she was sure it was right (because it seemed quite high) before entering my pin and she assured me it was - it wasn't : (( They did refund it without an argument though.

Fab food and very accommodating. Especially as I have an onion allergy. There were only 2-3 things that couldn’t be adapted for me.
Definitely go back!

Table booked for 7-30 . Took until 7-50 to take a drinks order . At 8-15 we decided to leave as no food order was taken . Went across the road to the Akash Indian Restaurant where service was really good and attentive . Will never give Amalfi a go again . The only positive was the girl in the camouflage t shirt who at least tried . Pity the rest of the staff didn’t try or didn’t care .

We booked to celebrate a family birthday and found amalfi excellent from start to finish. We were even able to increase the number last minute without any hassle. Would definitely recommend.

Slightly disappointed, it was a Birthday and been looking forward to cocktails prior to dinner, but early evening when we ordered we were informed no mint for cocktails. Appreciate its only a small point but it’s the second time it’s happened. We’ve been going to Amalfi for a number of years but feel the menu is loosing its authenticity and the restaurant is becoming more ‘run of the mill’. Sad really as we used to really like the place and had got to know a couple of staff who we haven’t seen on the past couple of occasions which used to feel you got that personal service and looked after during your visit.

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Great food, attentive waiting staff. Couldnt do enough for you. Great entertainment from Poppy the singer, who i must say was brilliant with my little boy Frankie.
Service was great, and food was amazing. We was even given canopies inbetween our starter and main. They was also amazing.
This was my second visit to the restaurant and i will be attending again.

Thank you amalfi lounge for an excellent evening, birthday and new years eve.

Unfortunately we booked for New Year’s Eve and wasn’t aware of a set menu for the night and both myself and my partner didn’t like anything on the menu. We were quite surprised for an Italian that pizza or pasta wasn’t an option.

We do enjoy coming here as we particularly enjoy the meatballs, chicken wings and the pastas they do. We won’t be booking for NYE in future though but will return during the year

We were put in a little corner next to toilets, kitchen and bar. Waited over an hour for food. My main was hot round the edges and cold in the middle. When complained was offered to be re -microwaved up again! The offered given reheat. Refused both also the food had almost no meat in the dish, my dish was canelloni. We were also directly under the speakers and where the guest hung up their coats and paind bills at the bar. Will not be returning.

When we got there there was no table booked in our name from open table!! Food was great. We were in the window looking down on the street and horrified to see the pizza delivery guy have 2 young children lying on his back seat with no car seats or seat belts on! They looked aged 3-4yrs! Horrendous!!!

the food is very good and reasonable but the only thing that let it down was the lack of staff although the staff who were there worked really hard and did what you asked but needed to ask in the first place as it was very busy.

I have been a visitor to Amalfi in the past and enjoyed the experience so am sad to say that on this occasion, I was extremely disappointed!
The fish platter this time was covered in over cooked breadcrumbs, combined with the ‘extra’ ordered calamari and served with the smallest amount of sauce/mayonnaise I’ve ever seen!
The presentation was also poor.
We ordered pino and it was barely drinkable.
The staff tried their best and were helpful and friendly.
It was the food and presentation that were sorely lacking.
Such a shame as I really liked this restaurant

Food and drink were really lovely. We went for early sitting on Sunday with our young children. All great until it started to go dark, there were no forms of lighting near our table and there were many bulbs out of the main light in the area.

We had to wait a little while for our table so were asked to go downstairs for a drink but they had run out of gin. When we were seated upstairs we had to wait a while for our order to be taken and for the starters to arrive but the food was lovely and there is a good choice on the menu ( all reasonably priced)

We had a lovely time, the waitress let down the experience a little as I felt like causing her a hard ship to actually do her own job when requesting drinks.

But the food was lovely and I would defiantly return.
