Mediterranean
The Levant is the place where the sun rises, geographically it covers the region bordering the eastern Mediterranean Sea. This region hosted a vast variety of cultures through history creating what is now known as the Levantine Cuisine which is the specialty of Ammatoli.

AMMATOLI is distinctive and extraordinarily fresh and healthy. We use only the finest quality ingredients, and all our produce and bread are delivered daily, honoring the traditional recipes and exotic flavors from the cuisines of the Levant... served in a welcoming ambiance!

Our Mediterranean influenced kitchen gains inspiration from the best cuisine the Levant has to offer. Our fresh creative menu items are made from scratch and health oriented. The result is a cuisine that is tasty and exotic. Levantine food is the epitome of the Mediterranean diet, cuisine that goes under the heading, healthy food, high on vegetables and big on flavor!

    Beautiful restaurant, truly a nice spot to enjoy Middle Eastern furnishings and style. Food was amazing, and so was the service. We especially enjoyed the desserts (Osmalieh Ice Cream and Knafeh were both fantastic). We'll be back!

    We drove from Valencia to try ammatoli . The food did not disappoint , it was very good . Surprised to be charged for the pita bread when ordering humus and mutabal. At every middle eastern restaurant we eat at , being of middle eastern decent bread is always complimentary with the 2 dips !! Service in the beginning was great Than our waitress finished her shift , and we were given to another waitress that almost ignored us. We had to literally flag her down each time we needed something. She finally came to the table , handed us our bill and at that time we told her we wanted to order dessert. We ordered kunafeh which is our very favorite Arab dessert. It was to die for sooo good. The entire ride home an hour and 20 min drive we said thank for we insisted to her that we wanted dessert , because we would of missed that awesome kunafeh. We almost just were ready to take our bill and say oh well not meant to be for dessert But I’m glad my husband spoke up to her !! Great food. Great ambience but please do t be rushing tables out or ignoring your customers to the point you have yo be flagged down. We noticed other tables near us had to shout to get to get her attn too

    Food was great our server Sherry was wonderful. Only complaint is we had an early dinner reservation still lots of table available, but they gave us the worst table. We did ask for a better table and they did accommodate. As we were leaving another couple was getting seated at the counter table facing the outside window and they too had a reservation and requested a better table. People go out to dinner for food and ambiance.

    Once again, Ammatoli delivered on its commitment to provide delicious food, marvelous service, and a gorgeous environment with acoustics that make it easy to have a conversation. Our server was Liv (I hope I’ve got that right) who is charming, witty, and who knows the menu backwards and forwards. Her suggestions were spot on. Ammatoli offers generous portions for fair prices…right down to the huge homemade pita bread! We made sure to be a little early, and even so we had no wait. PS in case potential customers don’t know, there is free parking in a building a block away. This in the middle of downtown Long Beach!

    Great ambiance, delicious food... This was our second time here and it will definitely not be the last! Highly recommending the Arugula & Beet Salad (with onions, dates, walnuts, olive oil dates dressing, feta cheese & pomegranates) as well as Mutabbal Mezza (fire roasted eggplant, tahini, garlic & olive oil dip). Freshly baked pitas are a must, too!

    This restaurant closes its kitchen at the ungodly early hour of 7:00pm on Monday and Tuesdays, and doesn't tell people that when they make dinner reservations for 6:30pm. They were completely out of their signature dish -- (and protein all together) -- chicken -- which is what we came to try, and we knew why when the waitress told us that the kitchen was about to close, minutes after we tried to order it. For the staff to be turning off lights, spray cleaning and placing trash containers onto the bar while we're barely starting our (replacement) entrees is completely unacceptable. If they don't want to be open on those days they should stay closed. Or, like smarter restaurants do, CLOSE BETWEEN 2:30 - 5:00pm so that they can stay open for dinner. This completely soured our experience as we were rushed out as one of the last tables at 7:45 pm. We didn't get to order what we wanted, what we DID order was just OK, and the wine list needs some serious help, both the selection offered and what they charge for a small pour of something you've never heard of. The prices also need to reflect the quantity and creativity of the dishes, in the appetizer selection especially. $14 for what looked to be one small potato cut into cubes was seriously a rip-off, and the deep-fried cauliflower was not much better at a similar price. I had eaten a quick lunch there the week before and liked my salad, and went back specifically to try the chicken. Not sure if I'll try again, and if I do, it will NOT be on a Monday or Tuesday. We left annoyed.

    Everything was terrific. The food was really tasty - highly recommend the spicy hummus! - and their pita bread is baked in house. Super fresh. Drawback - they close at 7 Mon/Tues. We would have stayed for dessert if we didn’t feel like an imposition as the restaurant was getting cleaned around us.
