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.

We had an excellent sever, Kate did an awesome job. I would preferred more arugula on the prosciutto salad it was loaded with meat and not enough greens. Chicken marsala was delicious. Will definitely return.

Fantastic place for a Sunday evening dinner! We were seated at a great table and the atmosphere was lively, but still very easy to have our own conversation. Kate was our server and did a wonderful job. The pace of the evening was perfect, not rushed, and not ever left wanting... We were there to enjoy the time and that we did. I will be requesting one of her tables when making our next reservation. The food was near perfect and met our expectations for the evening. We each just had salad and a main course... would recommend the RUCOLA e PROSCIUTTO and BARBABIETOLA salads along with the POLLO MARSALA and MAIALE SALTIMBOCCA... Wonderful evening. Thank you Kate.

We love Ambrosia. The food is great and the atmosphere is even better. We had a bad experience this past weekend with poor service but that was an anomaly.

Three of us went for dinner and it was outstanding. Good cleaning protocols and tables well spaced so you feel safe dining there. I had chicken parmigiana which is as good as any I have had anywhere else. My wife had her favorite fettuccine bolognese and my son had the roasted chicken. All were delicious and the service was great.

Ambrosia is one of our favorite places to eat. Everything on the menu is delicious, and the service is always spot on. We will continue to come here for special occassions and whenever we need to "get out of the house".

Ambrosia is a sanctuary for me at the end of a long work week. I know I can expect delicious, healthy food, beautifully presented- great service that's not suffocating, and a gorgeous decor which contains colors meant to calm, welcome you, and complement the food. Need I say more?

We booked a table on 01-11-21, and had a great dinner, that exceeded all expectations! *(our first visit) David was our Server, and he was personable, humorous, and took great care of us. We loved the ambiance, service, and food. Great special choices and regular menu, as well, not to forget a great wine and cocktail list! We tried the "Monkfish Special", and the traditional "Chicken Marsala". (Yummy/Home-made family recipes). We will definitely keep this restaurant on the list of our favorite choices in town! A+++
