The food and service is always great. They got the outdoor dining figured out. Definitely one of the two of my favorite Italian restaurants in Houston
Great as always !
We had a birthday dinner here and the food and service was fabulous. My sister in law who is from Rome said the food was a great as the food in Italy.
Our server was excellent! His name was Oscar R.
I mistakenly left my wallet on the table when we left; Oscar turned it into the hostess. I called when I discovered that I was missing my wallet; The hostess told me that the server had turned it in. I had a bit of cash in my wallet and every dollar was there.
Please thank Oscar for me and I will be back to see him soon to thank him for being so honest!!!
I LOVE Amalfi! This is truly some of the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy. I had a branzino special that was literally the most incredible fish dish I have ever eaten. The service is always perfect - the staff really get to know you. I can't say enough nice things about this restaurant.
Probably the best authentic Italian food in the City.
Great food and great service. Truffles season! White Alba!
The best restaurant in Houston, TX. No other is even close.
We dined early to avoid a crowded room. Outdoor seating is available but we were told it fills up faster than the inside room. All but one table inside was filled by the time we left@7:30. Staff was very attentive, though we had to ask for water refill once after food was delivered. The place was hopping! Food was very good as we expected, with a very generous pour of (house) wine by the glass, which we didn’t. Excellent wine recommendation from server. Service was fast but not rushed. Social distance? I’d say, barely. We will monitor for the next weeks, but will avoid this restaurant and most others for the duration. Special occasion will win out over COVID fears. The unsung heroes are the servers and cooks who do this every evening. Kudos.
Amazing food.. mazing night. Only wish they had speakers outside so we could hear the live music that was playing inside.
Wonderful place for a low key dinner. Delicious food great presentation and friendly staff
Date night w Hubby
Great food great place
Food and service at Amalfi is always excellent!
It is an absolute pleasure dining there!
We usually come here but last night happened to be a birthday celebration. At this time we only sit outside and Amalfi offers the best atmosphere outside. Very good and efficient waiters.
We are regulars, treated like fiends and family. Gianni usually takes care of us, as he did Saturday, and we were treated to great food and personal service with extra touches that always make us feel special. Adrian always has a great table selected for us. We frequently take our 9 & 11 year old grandchildren (and sometimes their friends) and they look forward to it - as they receive special treatment as well - including occasionally helping in preparing their own food if things are not too busy. We all look forward to our next visit.
We reserved an outside table. They ended up setting another table on the sidewalk, but brought us our own ice cooled air conditioner! Really helped. We ordered the restaurant week menu which was delicious with several good choices. We always try to go during restaurant month.
Had dinner with group as part of HRW. Great service/food and wine selection. We enjoyed our table stuck in a corner. The pandemic of course affected everyone, despite that Amalfi was hopping and service was attentive. Thank you
Terrific experience. The good is great but would be great to have this place at. Roof top. The experience can be better if the place is at a different location with a view
Such a great place! Went on a double date with friends here. Food was awesome! I tried the HRW (Houston Restaurant Week) menu. $45 per person. Began with a fruity Bellini. I chose the tuna tartare to start with, braised short rib for entree, and grilled peach with ice cream for dessert. Excellent. We’ve tried almost everything before on the menu and you can’t go wrong. Every fish dish is perfectly seasoned and cooked. No overcooked fish at this place. If you have never tried it, must go for the branzino aka Mediterranean Seabass. All the pasta dishes are great too. Excellent place to dine in. Food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. We always bring our friends here. Friday night they have live music, so it’s lively and family friendly. Highly recommend this place!
I swear every time we go it gets better and better!
It’s a small place, which I Love, but seriously, they have great waiters! They all are accommodating- they try hard to make your dining experience enjoyable, and I accredit that to the manager, he is absolutely lovely!! He LOVES what he does, and it shows. I see the owner (lady) there some times and she looks happy- great sign of good ownership!
Amalfi’s was great as usual. Wait staff was very attentive. All COVID protocols were observed by the staff. Food was excellent.
We enjoyed our evening and were treated like old friends. The food was excellent and the servers could not have been nicer! Thank you
Loved the entertainment too. Nice touch!
This is a restaurant that I love to come to just for the amazing food. They have great wines. I was very impressed with the Bocale Montefalco Rosso 2017. Very flavorful and bold. There is nothing I would not recommend on their menu every item is fresh, bright and well presented. Our favorite server is Gianni he is top notch and they will honor your seating preferences if you ask. It's tucked away and you might not think much from the outside but take a chance on this one and enjoy a fantastic Ristorante experience.
There did not feel like any social distancing was being practiced at this restaurant. The place was packed and the tables close enough to hear the conversations without trying. Other than the seating issue the service was outstanding and the food was very good.
I will go back when it is cooler and sit outside for the distancing. The food and service was worth it!
Food, service and noise level was good.
Incredible food and service, will definitely be returning!
During Covid I thought restaurants were 50% -75% full! The inside of this place was 100% full when we visited. I requested an outdoor table and it was spaced out better and they had strong fans on both ends. It was lovely outside and we felt safe.
Now as for the food and service it was wonderful. Our server Oscar was very good and gave great suggestions. We ate of the HRW Menu. It was A LOT of food and so good. We had the seafood ravioli topped with lobster and the roasted pig. both were very tasty.
Chocolate moose was rich with dark chocolate and the Lemon sponge cake was light and very tasty. We will be a repeat customer!
Fantastic Dinner at Amalfi Saturday night! The food was amazing, our service was great, and the ambience was perfect. An added bonus was the Italian guitar player playing beautiful music in the background! Highly recommend!!!
Best Branzino - off the HRW menu. Included a bellini and appetizers. Desserts were brilliant, and I ordered extras to go.
We eat here regularly. The food is great and Gianni and Adrian treat us and our kids like family. Dining out should be good - this is also fun.
Excellent presentation and taste. Our dinner was fabulous.
As spot on. Great food and service. THe best in Houston !
We went for the first time during restaurant week and everything was delicious and the service was great! Make sure you save room for dessert!!
Everything was wonderful! They had live music and we were greeted with an appetizer and drink from the chef. Food was fabulous and drinks were nice and strong!
We went for HRW. So good!
Awesome dinner great service and fabulous live music
The food was ok at best, not worth what we paid. The interior gives off a very strange vibe. Everything is Italian themed except for the bar which seems to give off a sports bar feel.
My Experience was Fantastic! The chef was super friendly, Welcoming, and my food came on time and fresh. Overall experience was Exceptional !!
