"Cory our waiter was very knowledgeable. We had a wild boar sausage app it was great. We also had the double cut veal chop which was cooked perfectly. When finished we wanted to go to the bar and cory took our drinks and got seats at the bar."

"Menu offers an unusually varied selection of tasty and imaginative dishes all of which are well prepared and nicely served. The warm crusty Tuscan bread is irresistible. Deserts are less special but there's seldom room any way."

"First time here for Easter Sunday and it was excellent. The appetizers of fried calamari, mussels, and the shaved artichoke salad were delicious. For our main courses 2 of us had the veal chop and 1 the rib eye. All were cooked perfect. That veal chop was out of this world. And our waitress Karen made for the perfect dinner. Def recommend this restaurant"

"My husband and I have been to this restaurant a few times and every single time was a wonderful experience. We were there this past weekend and the food was fabulous. Our waiter Terry was so attentive he made our dining experience even better by his recommendations and attentive service.
Cannot wait to go back to enjoy another spectacular meal. Go to Ama's....you will not be disappointed."

"Some new dishes on the menu which is great. The menu is tried and true and when something new is added its going to be a great dish. We are always happy when we dine here and if you come on one of the wine special nights there are some great choices on the menu. Just keep up the great work"

"Unbelievably fresh food and top quality ingredients. We were floored by how much the food outdid our expectations, and it was Jersey Shore restaurant week, too, so the expectations were even lower! Thr only downside was slow, inattentive service (mainly at the bar to get a drink pre-dinner, but waiter was sluggish too, perhaps understaffed..). Overall, a solid 4 for the view and food. Don't skip this gem."

"The place must be under new management because I went for my birthday and I always feel special there which I didnt.
The food is always outstanding but starting to truly get over priced for the service.
I will continue to go there they need to go back to how they treated there customers.

"Mussels appetizer if fantastic. I had Ravioli special with peas and mussels and it was really Good (light and great flavors) Wife had scallops and they were done perfectly as well. Location is nice since it right on the ocean and is on the second floor. Try and get a window seat you really want to enjoy the view."

"Really nice place with delicious food. Service was very good too. Only two small, maybe silly, items: Caprese Salad had whole tomatoes, would have preferred sliced and overhead music was a bitloud. That being said, would definitely return for dinner and would like to try lunch sometime."

"We enjoyed ourselves so much last Easter we returned again this year. Unfortunately they chose to serve brunch until 3 p.m. so we had to eat a little later than we wanted to, but the food was delicious and well worth the wait. This is true Tuscan food (both my husband and his 87 year old mother are from Tuscany). So many restaurants in NJ claim to have Tuscan recipes, but this is one of the only ones that delivers. The sommelier, John, helped us pick a wonderful wine to complement our meal. Another memorable dining experience at Ama."
