    Excellent old-school Italian place. Nice variety of food, all wonderfully prepared. Wait staff was great--even gave my husband a complimentary cannoli after he agonized between desserts, so he got both of the ones he wanted. Really nice experience.

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE VILLA AMALFI ! This restaurant is truly "old school" Italian. Everything is fresh, homemade and is classic. It is so hard to find a restaurant that is truly 100% REAL Italian (everyone is trying to make it "fusion" or "put a spin on it". If you want great, amazing classic Italian dinner... you will not be disappointed!

    Villa Amalfi is a first rate restaurant that would receive high accolades if it had a NYC address. we begin with their fantastic Covid safety measures upon entering the premises. Courteous staff seat you promptly. You become their total focus, from taking a drink order to explaining specials, and menu. Had an exquisite Branzino, grilled, deboned (not an easy job). This is not your typical Italian "drown me in red sauce" meals, there is more class, finesse and art in their food preparation. U taste the food, not tomato! The best meal I have had in the past three years. I cannot thank the wait team for a super evening! These guys worked in some of the top NYC restaurants! Worth the trip, promise. Ask for Ivica or Igor! It will be a treat!

It will forever have a special place in my heart. It’s not bias though, the food and service really are incredible! I hope Villa Amalfi is around FOREVER!

    This is our go-to place for gracious outdoor dining during the pandemic: Tables well spaced, great food, extensive selections, QR code on each table for no-touch scanning of menus to your phone (should you to choose that), hand sanitizer on each table.

    Liked this place in the past. Food was good and reasonably priced. But now it’s is more expensive which I understand with what’s going on right now but up the quality for the food a little bit. Also educate your staff about the menu please. We had a recommendation from our waiter that was not what he described disappointedly. So over all not a great experience for the money we spent, and won’t go back there anytime soon.

    First date & COVID .... so as I am new the area I wanted a better then good meal since going out is not and ever week thing anymore. I was happy to see that they had table cloths and real silverware. The specials where in an app and that’s fine. We had salad and the polenta with mushrooms appetizer she had the fish and and I had the veal chop. Both was very good. We where not given a time restrictions and it resembled as close to normal dining I have had in awhile. I will definitely go back.

    Had a lovely time at Amalfi. Our first time. Good COVID protection measures in place. Pleasant and attentive staff. Made for a lovely evening. The zucchini flowers were very good, our entrees were good, gnocchi was tasty but a little heavy, cannelloni was not as good. We look forward to getting to see the inside of this great restaurant!
