Italian
Ambrosia was founded on the principle that the best food - and the best times of our lives - begin with love. In the Pizzi family kitchen in Liguria, Italy, the dinner table was a treasured space for family and friends. Since 1979, the Pizzi family, which now includes Gino's daughters Manuela, Anna, and Francesca, has been bringing that same love and commitment to the Ambrosia kitchen. Regular patrons and staff are all part of the family, and first-time visitors are welcomed like old friends.

This is one of our favorite restaurants but tonight we received no bread at our table and our entree was missing the pasta with marinara sauce (which we discovered after leaving). We felt there was something missing from the entree but did not request a menu to verify not that this should have been our responsibility.

I revisited an old favorite and found it beautifully updated. Service is attentive but not overbearing- willing to make a solid recommendation. Food is of the highest quality. Portions allow for an indulgent lunch the next day. I’ll be back again soon.

We came for show at Jazz kitchen and this was great choice. Food and service were tops. It’s cozy place and bit loud in bar, but overall good atmosphere and great italian food. Really good. Recommend the Arancini, Lasagna and Caprese salads. We will return.

SUPERB experience. White fish special and the cod were OUTSTANDING. Waiter David added humor, Joy and excellent suggestions. And Ohmyword the tiramisu and cannoli were the best. Today we exercise and remember the fun we had with friends.

We had dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The food was tasty and true Italian flare. The staff are very nice and made our evening very nice. A special shout out to Manager Mike Cook for making the birthday celebration extra special with a delicious Lemoncello cake! ( maybe it will become a regular dessert choice in the future!😉) Thank you. Susie & Tim
