We enjoyed the food and the waitstaff was very attentive, helpful and friendly. The big windows were open, almost like eating outside. And the drinks were great! Thumbs up for the pizza appetizer.

We were on a mission to find a good restaurant with a private dining room for my mom’s 90th birthday party. We had dinner at D'Amato's Restaurant and were very pleased with our overall experience. We had a choice of soup or salad with the entrées that we selected. My mom ordered the Italian Wedding Soup and I tried the... More

5 friends and I visited D'Amato's on Friday evening to celebrate a retirement. Our waiter, Marvin, was friendly and attentive. Host/manager, Andrew, was gracious and truly cared about our dining experience. Everyone loved their food which ranged from gnocchi to the salmon special. Happy hour went until 7pm with very reasonable prices. Dinner, drinks and dessert were all great. This... More

Nice environment, but I was not impressed. Stopped in for a drink after seeing a play. Took forever to get served but the drinks were good and strong. The DJ left something to be desired for me...the crowd seemed to not be into the DJ... so he kept playing louder and louder.. we left because you simply could not hear... More

We arrived just after 11: 00 A.M. for brunch & were told that we needed reservations to get in anytime before 1:00 P.M. Luckily, the bar is open seating & we grabbed 2 seats. The service was fantastic, as was the food! They have mimosas for 7.00 with 2.00 refills...yummy! Everything on the menu looked fantastic! I tried the open... More

We visited on a weeknight and ordered the prime rib for two. The prime rib was great and you can't beat the deal for $50 that includes a bottle of wine! We sat at the bar and had great service! We will definitely return!

We enjoy their “2 for” meals and the food is usually very good. We recently visited on a busy weekday and the meat and veggies were ok, although a bit overcooked which was unusual. Mrs P’s pasta was delicious as always especially with the Italian sausage. We like that a caesar salad is an option, it is excellent. Service was... More

They did a great job of accommodating our group of 10. The food was amazing (I had the fettuccini with shrimp, so good) and the service was great as well. Soups and salads came out in a timely manner as well as the entrees. Can't wait to go back with my family.

Ok.... we have always done the family get together at a relatives house. Never enough seating, ladies preparing the meal for hours and the hours spent washing dishes. Family food has always been great. Hard to believe this place did it as good... maybe better. The food is served family style. All of the traditional stuff with some Italian flavors... More
