D'Amatos is always a great experience. Good food and great service predominate. Was particularly impressed by their protocols to address COVID. A very safe and wonderful dining experience.

D’Amato’s never disappoints! I’ve done very little “pandemic dining” but felt very comfortable and safe here. Kudos to the entire staff.

Great ambiance and service. Food was pretty good. The mashed potatoes needed another mashing due to the Huge lumps. And some butter may have helped. Hey how about adding some cocktails to the martini bar. One of us loved the martinis but the rest of us could only get beer, wine or a mix drink.

The food is consistently very good, as is the service. There were four of us, and three had pasta dishes that were excellent, and one had the salmon that she said was fantastic. We go here all the time and we love it.

The evening wax wonderful as we celebrated our daughter’s birthday. A little issue with the app of meatballs-undercooked but a replacement was brought out quickly. A little too salty in the steak but otherwise a very enjoyable evening.

Food was very good. Waiter was excellent. The only complaint I had was I believe you should get free bread at an Italian restaurant. No bread here unless you pay for it.

Went for Sunday Brunch. Everything was Covid compliant, all staff had masks on and seating was limited. Our server was also working the bar, but she still was right there at our table whenever we needed something. Food was very good I ordered Eggs Benedict and my friend had the Frittata and they were both excellent. Would definitely recommend, and will be back

Have been there many times and the food is always excellent. We've probably had just about everything on the menu and never been disappointed. Tables were well spaced, cleaned and we felt very comfortable being there. Owner came by to say hello which was very nice. Service was not so great...waiter was very slow. Not because he was over seated, I think he forgot about us because we were not in his section with his other tables. We have always had great service and we saw other tables getting great service that night so that is not an issue with the restaurant.

D'Amato's will always be a consistent staple for my wife and I. To be honest, I haven't found one item on their menu that we haven't liked! I would always recommend their Risotto Meatball appetizer.. it's amazing.

I received a call a couple hours prior to our dinner reservation asking if we would prefer outdoor or indoor ding, I chose outdoor. The outdoor area was lovely. The food was very good, service was excellent. It was a lovely evening to celebrate some good things happening for our daughter. It was a great evening.

One of our favorites in Royal Oak. Unfortunately COVID changes have knocked it down a few levels. They no longer provide bread with dinners (italian food without bread - thats like a mexican restaurant without chips and salsa!!). Also - were made to sit outside on patio even though we had reservations and specifically asked to not sit outside. Could have insisted, but it ended ip being a cool night, so we went with it.

Food is still very good. Mrs P’s palomino sauce is terrific. Wife had gnocchi and it was outstanding. Hoping they will add back bread which was great and made this a decent value.

We requested the patio and were pleasantly surprised with the quaintness and charm of the patio area. Our server was personable and attentive.
We really enjoyed our meal and our experience.
