The food is extremely good and tasty. The place can get a little bit noisy sometimes. Service sometimes delay when the place is full. But the food is worth.

Probably the best Italian restaurant in Houston. All the dishes are balanced and top quality, the sauces are delicious and properly made. Service is excellent, and there's a great selection of Italian wines. My go to place when I'm in the mood for real Italian food.

Our food was well prepared and presentation was very nice. However, service was absent to classify it properly. I had to go find someone after about 20 minutes to take our drink order. the restaurant was very lightly attended so it was not that there were too many people needing service. We then had to flag down someone else to take our food order. Once the food arrived we also had to ask for refills on our drinks. So, I am hesitant to recommend this restaurant based on this experience.

Food was good, reasonable portions, service was excellent, and I did not find a major issue with price/quality. The only downside is the NOISE level, I'm sure it has a lot to do with the building materials used but I always wonder how they decide on where to seat people. I made a reservation and indicated it was for a special occasion, for two. They seated us right next to a large party celebrating a birthday, surely seating us at the bar would have been a little more intimate than directly next to a party of 8. One of the group members even warned us about their intended noise level and perhaps we should be given a discount for having to endure their noise level. Overall, this is a nice place with good service and food options. I would go again but maybe when the weather is cooler so we could sit outside and maybe we would be able to converse without shouting at one another.

We love Amalfi’s! The service, food, ambiance is excellent. This place has great,perfectly cooked and seasoned food.
The staff is excellent in customer service. They are attentive to an empty glass of water and time each service so that your food is ready for each course as you are.

During 11:30am crowd there are business lunches, dates, dress code seems business casual. Evenings there are special occasions like birthdays and dates and gatherings.

Prices are very fair. Portion size is great.

I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for some great authentic Italian food.

Another terrific meal at Amalfi. The seabass special and veal scallopini were beautifully prepared and delicious. Cappucino and a "Mango" tart were superb. Amalfi provides polished service and terrific food. Only minus is that it is a very live environment. It would be great if they could find a way to dampen the sound.

Love Amalfi. You can always count n the food and service to be outstanding. We love to take out of town guests here and have never been disappointed. I love the beef carpaccio appetizer. Any of the fish dishes are always a winner and the pasta is excellent. I have never tried the beef or veal but feel certain it would be delish. Don’t hesitate to go and enjoy this jewel of a restaurant.
