"I went for a business dinner and have decided to start hosting Musical Pairing dinners here. The food is fantastic and it reminds me of my grandmothers kitchen. I can't wait to go back for the Sunday dinner. The pasta really is homemade."

"To just get a bit off the 'beaten path' (56th east of third ave) we were very happy at Amata. A spacious room, generous portions and the accommodating "however you want it" style were much appreciated. Three pastas, a salad and two panini were enjoyed by us all and the service took excellent care of us."

"We've dined at Amata several times on a Friday night. They're always very accommodating. This last Friday, we were 8 people and two were children. They brought their meals immediately and even gave them a half portion rather than charging us the full amount. Dinner was prepared well and very tasty. Think they could be more generous with their portions and offering a pizza as an appetizer might be helpful. Waitstaff was courteous and prompt. Overall a good experience and I would definitely return."

"This is my fave restaurant in midtown. The food is so good and authentic that I always take clients and friends from out of town here. It's a good scene without being too obnixous like some restaurants downtown. The wine list is top notch as is the pork chops and meatballs. What I love most is that you can go high end italian here or just a simple bolognese sauce. The bartender is very friendly and chatty and you can tell a lot of locals go there on a regular basis, so it has a great atmosphere. This place is a must for anyone who enjoys having a good meal and good wine with friends in a laid back atmosphere."

"This was fourth time there and the quality of this place is solid. My first review is more detailed but AMATA has quickly become one of my favorite places on the east side. The pork chop is out of this world and definitely in my top 10 dishes of all my NYC favorites. It is insane!"

"I arrived early, and had a drink at the bar. The Bartender was very nice and friendly. WE had an early reservation and were seated. As soon as we were settled in our seats, we were told that the seat we were offered were reserved and we were made move. No other seat in the restaurant was occupied, and there was no indication on the table that it was reserved. Neadless to say, this was quite awakward as I am an an above the knee amputee and I had already settled myself in the seat. Moving us, in my opinion, was rude.
Luckily, We quickly forgot about the bad start to the seating arrangements and enjoyed our meal.

"Met up for dinner with a friend here Friday night. Was a little put off by the fact that it was quite empty when I got there but within the half hour the place was lively & full of people. Bartender was really friendly. It's apparent they get a lot of regulars & she already knows their orders before they even sit down.
Waitstaff was super attentive & friendly.
Food - great! Had the buratta & the octopus salad to start. Both delicious. Ordered the seafood pasta while my girlfriend ordered salmon ravioli (it was on the Special's menu). Both were tasty, but thy salmon ravioli was amazing. I hope when I go back it's on the menu.
Very nice experience overall.

"I work and live in midtown so I pass by Amata all the time. Last night, I decided to give t a try and I was blown away. This is an old-school NYC restaurant with a twist. First, the owner came to our table, sat down, and gave us the verbal version of the menu. This is old school and so sorely missed. We settled on his recommendations, one of which was the pork chop, and I have to say it might have been the best I have ever had. At first glance the menu might seem like just another "red sauce" joint, but nothing could be further from the truth. The calamari was incredible. The service was great and the place was full but not too loud. This is definitely a "must try". It may have been our first time there but I felt like a regular and was treated the same. I love this place. At the end of the meal we were sent a complimentary cheesecake desert that was INSANE. All in all there was nothing not to love about this place."
