Restaurant was out of all good quality steaks. Flank steak substitute was overpriced and low quality. We had a reservation for a birthday so this was disappointing. Silverware was dirty which happens sometimes but waiter explained it was frosting. Was that supposed to make it ok? House Cabernet was disappointing. Salad and onion soup - starters- were delicious. We won’t go back- clothes smelled awful after we left. We were really looking forward to our meal and celebration.

This is a great experience for people who love food in a quieter environment with personalized service. This restaurant definitely rises to our "regular" list of restaurants and we will be back real soon.

Excellent experience! We really enjoyed the wonderful food and the super friendly service. I love when the owners of the restaurant come to check on the guests, we had a lovely time and really enjoyed our beautiful evening on the Pozzi patio. I recommend the Cobia and the Caprese salad, but I hear the steaks are what they’re really known for. Guess we’ll have to go back again soon to find out! 😉

Great dining experience with owners Steve & Candy. Loved the food and service. Great vibe with 50’s movies running on a large TV over the kitchen and America’s songbook songs on the audio. Great things in a small package. Go and you will enjoy!

Our first time to Pozzi and we will definitely be going back. Steve, the owner was engaging and really loves the menu he puts together. The food was wonderful and Steve selected a great wine. The filet was incredibly tender and the lobster ravioli was amazing. Loved everything down to the 5 layer chocolate cake!

This restaurant was a gem and a fantastic find. The husband and wife team are both personable and hospitable. Love the ambience with Frank Sinatra playing in the background and old movie clips playing by the bar. The food is fresh and all made in house and the desserts are phenomenal. Can’t wait to go back again!

We had our 32nd wedding anniversary dinner here and it was an elegant experience in fine dining from appetizers to desserts! Entrees were wonderfully cooked to a perfect temperature and delicious. My husband loved the Tres Leche dessert and I enjoyd the chocolate mousse cake and coffee. I really liked the classic movies played on the TV screen too. The service was charming and warmly pleasant. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to all our friends and we will come here every time we visit Amelia Island.

I can’t say enough good things about our dining experience. The food was amazing. Filet Mignon was exceptional, and we also enjoyed the accompanying sides (mashed potatoes & zucchini). The prosciutto e melone appetizer and the triple chocolate cake dessert also 5 star. Service was impressive, and the owner Steve greeted us, was happy to provide recommendations and made sure we were happy with everything. It was a great meal, location and really made our evening special!

French onion soup is not french onion soup.

Pozzi Bistro
Responded on August 20, 2020

Pozzi Bistro does not serve French Onion Soup. Our menu item is "Steve's Onion Soup" which is described on our menu and by our servers as follows: " Steve's secret sweet whole onion soup baked in its own juices." It has been one of our most popular items over the past year and a half and our customer Open Table feedback has been universally positive.

Sweet couple are running this restaurant. Appetizers were excellent-Brussels and Ravioli. Desserts were melt in your mouth. Filet was good but the flank steak wasn’t. Good effort

A wonderful addition to Amelia Island! The lobster is tender and delicious. Crab Cakes had mostly crab and not full of “filler”. The owners are lovely and we look forward to many more dinners.

We are thrilled to have discovered Pozzi Bistro and we will return! Steve himself waited on us and it was delightful to learn his story. The homemade onion soup is a must. (Yes, I too thought that hot soup in hot Florida wasn't a great match but....you will not regret this choice! My wife got the Cobia and I had a Cobia\lobster combination. We both loved our choices. She had the five layer chocolate mousse cake and I had the apple crisp pie. Both were excellent.

This small and intimate restaurant is a gem. The experience was, in a word, outstanding. Had the mixed charcuterie plate (the blue cheese and the Parmesan with truffles were among the best cheeses I have ever had), and the filet mignon was perfectly cooked and melted in the mouth. The owner, Steve, introduced himself and oversaw the delivery of excellent service. This was my first experience at this restaurant, and it will definitely not be the last. Well worth the drive from Jacksonville.

The staff was very attentive and the food was nicely prepared. The only issue was dessert. We ordered ice cream with expressio top and an apple pie with ice cream. We received 2 apple pies with ice cream an, an expresso and the Icecream with expresso topper. The waiter took off the extra expresso, but never realized we only ordered one apple pie dessert. Thankfully, it was delicious and we ate it anyway.
We will definitely come back again!
