I was glad to have made reservations for my own peace of mind, but the restaurant wasn’t crowded. They had the windows open which was nice, given that it was a warm and sunny day. Emily was our server, and she was energetic, professional, and attentive. The food and drinks were very good, and the staff had great customer service overall. I had a great experience and I’m excited to go back again soon!

Great first time at D’Amato’s. All of the food was delicious. We sat at the bar and they certainly still had limited capacity since most tables empty but reservations were full. One suggestion: they need to update their wine list. The vintage for their wines is not accurate on the wine list. We will certainly return!

I love D'Amatos for any occasion. They do such a great job of putting lots of space between tables, and still asking patrons to wear masks when not at their table. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The cocktails are incredible, and I've never had a bad meal. The aroncini balls were a huge hit with our group, especially the sauce that they come with. Everyone got something different and loved their meal - pasta dishes (including zucchini noodles!), pizza, salads...great food, great atmosphere.

This was our second time coming to D’Amatos. The first time was mind blowing, I had the best filet mignon of my life, which is what brought me back again. Sad to say, my second visit was very disappointing for me and my family. Food was no where near the level it was the first time. Guess we’ll chop it up to a loss and call it first timers luck.

Food was very good but took an extremely long time to arrive. Drinks were very disappointing, especially for a place that considers itself a martini bar. Service was not the best. Server was very friendly but just not very efficient, especially because restaurant was really not busy.

Attentive service, excellent food, easy to have a conversation. We will for sure be back! It was a 5pm reservation; not sure how that impacts sound level, and I'm curious what it will be once the restaurant is back to full capacity.

I understand that we are in the middle of the pandemic but if you are doing a limited menu make sure the food is really good. I feel the waiter was annoyed and made no effort to hide it. The food tasted like it had been sitting there for a long time and you couldnt even get parmigian cheese or bread with your pasta.

The food and service were fantastic. There was an error on our order but it was handled immediately and our bill compensated. The manager spoke with us to make sure we're content and was very professional. Will definitely be back. Best chicken piccata I ever had!

The staff was the best part of this date! They truly were attentive and patiently allowed us time to speak before ordered, or even looking at the menu.
The calamari was so delicious, I typically prefer the steak like strips of calamari but not here! Their calamari was finger licking good with the sauces and slices of peppers.
My date choose the chicken parmigiana, which was a large portion and cooked to perfection.
I choose to try the shrimp scampi ravioli, which was okay. Not something I would order again, but am hoy I tried something out of the box.
