“Poor value for money - food not great. Two meagre sea food risottos, starter size and two bears £40!”

“I can't say we had a bad time - we had a great works night in the basement but what I will say, the lady who takes bookings is a nasty rude woman. In plenty of time I changed my booking from 10 to 20 people and she tried her hardest not to accommodate this and then when we arrived at 9pm instead of 8.45pm she told me off like a child. And there was not one other person in our area!! The rest of the staff were helpful and cheerful. The food was fine and the bill reasonable but, that girl, needs a new career I think.”

“I've been going to the Amalfi for 20 years. Tonight I went for the last time. I used to love the old Amalfi. I knew most of the waiters and on quieter mid week nights the staff would bring over a complimentary drink and have a chat and a laugh. Since the reopening it is a disaster. Upstairs is now so cramped we were sat on top of the people at the next table. The menu has deteriorated considerably; it looks like a chain. The vegetarian choices have all but disappeared and there is no longer a specials board. We ordered olives and a basket of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, seafood linguine and spinach cannelloni along with a bottle of wine. What was once a basket of Italian bread has now morphed into a basket with two small very thin slices of bread. The wine hadn't arrived by the time we'd finished the olives and bread (I grant you it didn't take long to eat). I had to ask for it twice, as I did for everything else. The service was awful. We had to wait for ages and re-ask for everything. Once it anything did arrive half the staff would then descend on the table to ask if all was OK. When the main courses arrived my partner’s linguine was uninspired and just about passable. My cannelloni was clearly mass-produced; being generous I could say it was bought from Brakes, though I suspect it was a value pack from the local supermarket. It had been microwaved and then put under a grill and was dry.”

“terrible services made your dinner a piece of shit! the staff were extremely unfriendly and rude. i had my guests from japan but the rudeness of the staff completely ruined our meeting as they made us very uncomfortable. when they taking our order their information was wrong, when they set catrary on table they almost threw them and made noise and when they serve our plate also, but the worst is they keep swaring in italian. i was very dissapointed as amalfi was sometimes introduced in japanese magazines as a "nice place to eat", but i strongly against the idea and will tell all people i know as i don't want my friend to be another victim! the food was not too bad, but i definitely never coming back to the restaurant again. ”
