Amalfi Ristorante Italiano & Bar
Creative well executed dinner menu. Noise level permitted good conversation with our guests. Waitress was pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful w/o being intrusive. Excellent evening!
While the food and drinks are strictly top-notch at Amalfi, the noise level at this restaurant is among the highest of any restaurant in the city. We absolutely love the food, ranking it the top Italian restaurant in Houston, we just can't carry on a conversation here unless we come in after 8:30 PM, when the crowd has begun to depart.
We noticed on a recent Saturday night that the trio (which includes a singer) was not present; this was helpful, and we hope the restaurant will continue to omit this added sound so diners can carry on conversations while dining.
Food, presentation and presentation are all strictly tops.
Four of us dined. All had a pasta dish after Antipasti ( Tuna tartare ). One requested pasta carbonara, one the ravioli with lobster slices and two pasta with mushrooms- on the menu in more detail. All were great! We love the Chef’s dessert sample selection of 8 small things. Also had two bottles of Perbacco red.
All was enjoyed
We celebrated 2 Birthdays at Amalfi’s.
Outstanding as usual. One of our favorite restaurante.
We have lived in Houston for 4 years and only just came here. The outside bears no relation to what is inside. We were all so impressed!
Great food, excellent service. Very well run restaurant all around. The ambience is elegant yet very friendly. Menu is quite varied with wonderful, authentic Italian dishes. Tonight we had Ossibuco, Branzino, Beef Carpaccio, various good salads and caramel brûlée and rum baba. Great meal!
Delicious food! Service was great and what a nice, cozy spot. We sat outside because the inside was quite loud. But, if you don't mind the noise, it's a very lovely restaurant inside with a warm, intimate feel.
the patio was nice too. We will definitely be back!
Amalfi is the absolute best and only real Italian restaurant in the Houston area.
The service is provided by professional waiters and not by people only working as servers till they find another job.
Nice service, real Italian food and good ambience.
Very lively inside restaurant. Went Saturday evening and they were very busy. Staff was very friendly.
What a neighborhood gem! A friend told me about this restaurant, and we loved it! The staff is so friendly and the food is delicious! Be sure to make a reservation before you go to this popular place as it was packed when we went. If you like a slightly quieter environment, ask for a table in the wine room.
Very loud. Tables close together. Food delicious.
The ambiance reminded us of Italian restaurants, cozy and tight spaces. Really enjoyed the HRW menu. Will definitely go back for regular menus.
Service and food was over the top! We will be back!
Restaurant week was the special occasion and we enjoyed it. Service was great. Loved the bread sticks and ambience was good. Sat in back room. Would recommend to friends. Very good restaurant.
Had teservation for 8.30 PM and was seated at 9.30 PM. Very noisy, tables on top of each other. Food was disappointing. Would not recommend.
This restaurant is a wonderful Italian restaurant in Houston!
There were very crowded because of Restaurant week.
We also ordered from restaurant week menu and food was all good!
We will absolutely come back here again for the regular menu.
It was ok just bad experience.
Highly recommend the Branzion fish!
Great food and attentive waiter. It was a lovely date night.
4 of us went for Restaurant Weeks. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the service was. Even though the restaurant was full we felt special
and it wasn't too loud. The food presentation and flavor were excellent. We will be back soon.
Fantastic food. Fresh homemade pasta. Great wine. Gianni is the best waiter. What else do you need?
Well it took a bit of time for someone to even address our table? Which was disappointing as it was our first time and my fathers birthday.
I ordered the chicken as I don’t eat beef or seafood, sadly I found the chicken a tad dry-
However my father enjoyed his meal immensely, so that’s a happy end.
Como siempre la comida estuvo excelente, el ambiente muy agradable y la atención excepcional. Les felicito y continuen de esa manera.
Ya hice mi proxima reservacion.
Saludos y Muchas Gracias
Fantastic food, great service. Had a great time.
We will come back.
This was a great place for a date night. I really enjoyed taking my wife out.
The food and service were outstanding! The presentation was beautiful. Even the plates on the tables next to us. The restaurant was packed, which is always a good sign. It definitely time for an upgrade to a larger space.
Great meal, service and decor.
Our only negative was the tables (which were all full) were packed too close together. So I was hard to move around and very noisy. They need more space!
The service and food were amazing! The restaurant was smaller than expected but it was still very nice. It was packed! People at every table but they still got the food out to us extremely quick. Very responsive to dietary restrictions - server had extensive knowledge of the menu and made wonderful recommendations of dishes that fit my needs.
Great menu, especially for us as we eat plant based diets. Many vegan, plant based, options. Service was very good, and waiter/chef have worked with me in the past to provide plant based options. Waiters are very experienced and customer focused. Good atmosphere, can get a little noisy on a busy weekend night when packed, but still very enjoyable ( some outside seating looked very nice weather permitting).
We plan to return next time an Italian dinner out is in our plans.
BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN HOUSTON PERIOD!!!!!
Had a great dinner with friends.
Deliciously Authentic Italian cuisine
What a great dining experience for Houston, I felt they did a great job, everything we ate for restaurant weeks was amazing
Extremely loud. Food was good. Service was good. But it was so loud, we could not talk!!
Great neighborhood spot for our family! Our kids always demand that we go here. The parents love it too.
