Overall I thought everything was quite fine. I love the grilled Bronzino. My husband had the duck which was the special that me and he found a little dry but we would not hesitate to go back to amphora. It’s very good value for the money. It is a little bright inside so not very romantic but the food and good service more than carried the evening.

Not enough staff for adequate service ( waiting for drinks, refills etc. ) food was good, but semi cold, plates were not warm. We had octopus, seafood pasta special, and branzino special. All in all well cooked, but lacks rafinesse, especially given the rather stiff prices.

Nice interior; we thought the menu to be somewhat limited, but they offer specials. I would classify it as $$$$ pricey. Indoor and outdoor seating is available; it was not crowded when we went there so it was easy to get a table.

We love Amfora and especially appreciate the ability to sit outside to dine. The food is all 5 star food. The wait staff was terrific and got everything just about right. Our only gripe was not having our table for 8 ready when we arrived to claim our reservation. Having 8 people stand around waiting for 15 minutes was not pleasant. To be fair, the food was worth the wait. I love the grilled branzino and my husband always loves the short ribs. Everyone had a different dish and our crowd was happy.

Selected this restaurant based on the great reviews and had high expectations. Ordered the osso buco, Lamb shank and octopus. All three dishes were bland, but on the positive side the two meat dishes were very tender. Service was friendly but spotty. There are too many good restaurants out there for us to return.

Was here for dinner on an off night so the rather large restaurant had plenty of room for seating and low noise levels. The food was what I’ll describe as exceptional. I had the lamb shank that was done perfectly and very tasty. Another dinner we ordered was the duck. Honestly have to say, ordering duck even at the finest restaurants is hit and miss. The duck here was prepared perfectly and was delicious. I will recommend and return.

Amfora is a true gem, a very welcome addition to Bonita Springs! I have not had a bad meal there yet. The Manager and Sommelier, Jorge, is knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming, making you want to return again and again. He has put together a great wine list. There is not one dish on the menu I wouldn’t try, which will be difficult, because I love everything I’ve eaten there and always want to order it again. The stuffed squid appetizer is amazing, as is the lamb shank, and any fish entree I’ve had is creative and impeccably prepared. The Chef/Owner is a Master!

We sat outside. The food and the service were outstanding. We ate the appetizer with the hummus, babaganoush, etc. I had the salmon and my friend had the swordfish. Both were very tasty. All four of us had different desserts - they were all scrumptious. We would definitely go back again.

Can't get anyone to answer the phone to make a reservation. No hostess when you enter. People next to us complained about no service after being seated. Owner offered excuses as to why so people walked out. I ordered Duck but after everyone's food was delivered I was told they were out of Duck. I changed to squid ink pasta and was served regular pasta. Waitress said someone was supposed to have come out and told me that. I have eaten there 3 times. Always same story - very good food but the restaurant is horribly mis-managed. Cant survive with this horrible level of service.

One of the best meals I've ever enjoyed...in my entire life!! Everything was incredibly fresh and perfectly prepared. I had the beet salad and the Chilean sea bass with risotto and seaweed salad for my entree. It was phenomenal!! I had the chocolate mousse for dessert....of course, that was phenomenal too. I have eaten in some of the best restaurants in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco...this restaurant ranks on the top of that list. The staff is great too. I wish I could eat here every day. I prefer the house Chardonnay over the Sauvignon Blanc.

Hopefully they will get more help in the dinning room.
I think every restaurant is experiencing that issue.
