This was our first visit and we will definitely go back. While the menu is not extensive, the quality is amazing. I had crab cakes that were simply lump crab, seasoning and a touch of binding ingredient. My husband had the Cobia which he said was cooked perfectly. Their desserts are huge so I recommend sharing.

Great meal and Steve made an excellent wine recommendation. One of my favorite places for good red wine coupled with an excellent charcuterie board. We shared the crab cake dinner, which didn’t disappoint.

We will be back!

We had never been to Pozzi before and thought we would try it before going on to Amelia Community Theater (2 blocks away). We were definitely pleased with all the aspects. While the space is small fortunately for us there was only one other table occupied so the noise level was quiet. We ordered a nice bottle of red and a split of Prosecco. The red wine was outstanding and my wife really enjoyed the Prosecco. Service was prompt, helpful and courteous. Our appetizers (Caprese Salad and Baked Brie) were delicious with the blueberry topping on the brie earning high marks from all. Main courses were also top notch with everything coming out exactly as ordered. We even splurged for an order of the five layer chocolate cake whichg was perfect for the three of us. Since Pozzi is a coffee shop earlier in the day we decided to have a cappuccino and expresso which were also great. This is not a bargain restaurant but we thought the value for money was clearly there. It will be our regular stop for pre theater dinners.

Had not visited Pozzi due to mixed advertising as to whether they were a wine bar, a Espresso shop, or a restaurant. We determined last evening that Pozzi is a great new restaurant with personal service, great atmosphere and superb food. Loved it!!!

Truly a wonderful dining experience at what others are calling a “hidden gem”, and it is for sure! The owners are very kind, friendly and knowledgeable! The food was exceptional and worth every penny. It is not an inexpensive option, but I would do it again and again and keep referring others to go enjoy a quaint, super quality dinner!

Since our last visit the menu has had some small changes, but the quality of the food, by the glass wine selection and options on the targeted menu remain excellent. On this visit I had a few smaller plates while my girlfriend had a fish entrée special, and those, along with the chosen wines, hit the spot. Even if you have a smaller appetite you will find some interesting choices including their version of onion soup which is lighter, different, tasty and quite satisfying.

My dinner of crab cakes was superb. My dining companion ordered fish and had to send it back twice because it was undercooked. They apologized profusely and made it up to us with a glass of wine and dessert.

What a wonderful evening! Charm, amazing food, and delightful ambience. If you are visiting Amelia Island, don't miss this gem. We started with the mixed charcuterie and cheese- so yummy! My husband had the filet and I had the crab cakes. Both prepared perfectly. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We have been to Pozzi several times now and I’m happy to report it never disappoints. The owners Candy and Steve have their heart and soul in this business. They have a small hand picked menu with the best cuts of meat and quality ingredients plus they’re there actually running the place, telling stories and generally charming their guests. The best part is many of the recipes have been handed down through Steve’s family and like my Osso Buco tonight are truly delicious! The steaks are great ( I sample everyone else’s dinners) the Ribeye was my favorite. Save room for dessert. They have a little something for everyone from chocolate espresso cookies to chocolate cake to their very delish version of tres leches cake. Try it! You will like it I promise! 💗

Absolutely love this place. My husband and I have visited Pozzi’s several times for the most amazing coffee but haven’t ate dinners until last weekend for our 20 year anniversary night out. As we expected the food was incredible and wine selection was on point. After dinner we wrapped up the evening with a delicious cup of coffee. Thanks again Pozzi’s for making our anniversary evening something to remember.

My only request would be another seafood option for the menu.

Pozzi's absolutely had the best crab cakes I think that I have ever eaten. However, it was rather pricey for the area and for the casual atmosphere. It was fine dining food and prices in a coffee shop.

Wonderful new place, we went for dinner. Steve and Candy made us feel like family. The steaks were cooked exactly as requested. He also find new wines for us that we loved, we are no experts in that area but he is! The carrot cake was also incredible. They were playing classic movies on the TV and with Sinatra on the stereo it was perfect.

Great meal and service. Cozy.
This is $$$ though, not $$ as indicated. It may be $$ during the day but $$$ for dinner.
