    The chair I sat in was very shaky. My friend changed her chair as did a man sitting behind her. Hard to enjoy if you’re afraid of falling to the floor. Good otherwise.

    The lighting in certain parts of the restaurant was a little too dark especially dining in the evening. However me and my party was placed near a floor lamp in addition to being under the ceiling light and we were fortunate because there was just enough light to read the menu. Overall my dining experience at D’Amato was phenomenal from the waitress to the food and the atmosphere I loved everything about it. The food was served piping hot and fresh and each dish was cooked with love and taste very authentic ingredients from Italy. The staff was attentive and courteous the entire time we were seated. Thank you

    Had only been for brunch in the past and we finally went for dinner. We had the arancini, bread & olives, filet and fettuccine with chicken. Loved everything we ordered! The steak was one of the best I’ve ever had-not hyperbole! The zip sauce is perfection. Our cocktails were great too. I only wish my Manhattan was served up or at least notated that it was served on the rocks on the menu. But honestly, it was still really good. The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. Will definitely recommend to others!

    D'Amato: Roomy, Casual, Good Food and Atmosphere. A lively, casual crowd and fair space between tables. Our party of 5 had easy confirmation. The food and service is good; pasta entrees traditional but especially well prepared and presented, excellent Bruschetta (fresh) and good sausage and pepper app (presentation in a deep dish enveloped in red sauce, sharable). Good cocktails, and wine selection. Donuts and ice cream for dessert. D'Amato is adjacent but separate from Gracie.

    Please ask your kitchen to check the salt level of the soups daily. My minestrone was toi salty, but I ate it anyhow. My friend had the Italian wedding soup and it was unbearably salty, so she had the wait staff return it to the kitchen. The risotto balls appetizer was delicious, as well as the zucchini noodle dish.

    Food was great - We were seated in the bar area and unfortunately our server (who was bartender) was flying solo so our service was very slow. No fault of hers we know, however —

    Only real complaint is that it was cold and never really warmed up even after requesting it. Service was excellent but wish the waiter wasn't so rushed. Food and my drink were very good. Large portions so much I took half home.

    The bread on the Bread Board appetizer was delicious but should have been warm. The calamari was chewy. My gnocchi was decent but the dough was just chopped in cylinder shaped random lengths. Waiter was very pleasant although quite busy and not as attentive as we would have hoped. Everything was slow to our table and we had to call him over each time. Extremely noisy! Hard to have a conversation.

    Tony tried out a new winter dish for us tonight and it was one of the best tasting treats we’ve had in years! I don’t have a name of it but it was a ravioli with their famous beef brisket included. Beyond words.

    Went for dinner for my birthday. Great appetizers, delicious dinner and even though they were out of the wine we selected the waiter gave us a food replacement 👍 Our waiter was very friendly and gave us great service. I peeked in the bar and they had a live DJ playing some good music. A little pricey but very nice for a special occasion.

    Our sever was fabulous and very attentive. Not many desert choices but they were nice enough to treat me to a birthday desert. I really appreciated it. The bread and olives appetizer wasn’t very special, the bread was good but it wasn’t warm but the olives were kind of sad and nothing special. Just a small container of soft and small olives. Made me wish I had order something else. If you’re going to serve olives then give us the good olives!! Otherwise I enjoyed my birthday dinner there.

    My wife and I were coming into town for a show. We reserved restaurants in the area and found good reviews. We happened to show up a half hour early and they didn’t think twice. Sat us right away at a table of our choosing. Server was outstanding. Very pleased with the server and the host. Wonderful experience. Food was fantastic. Would definitely return when I go back there.

    Four of us enjoyed our meals which included the portobello mushroom ravioli, chicken piccata, chicken. Marsala. One of us is on a gluten and dairy free diet and still was able, with the waiter’s help, tailor a meal which satisfied his health needs with zucchini noodles and steak. Service was professional, friendly and prompt.
