Ama Ristorante Restaurant Review: The Atlantic Ocean to the east and sunsets over the Shrewsbury River to the west create striking views at Ama, a seaside restaurant featuring novel and reimagined Italian dishes. Chef Pasquale “Pat” Trama, who trained with celebrity chefs such as Pino Luongo, Charlie Palmer and David Burke and worked with renowned restaurateur Drew Nieporent, invests his time in testing and crafting dishes such as prosciutto di Parma plated with red grapes, a drizzle of almond honey and baby arugula; gnocchi in duck bolognese made with king trumpet mushrooms and buffalo milk ricotta; and East Coast halibut served with Brussels sprouts petals, parsnip purée and cranberry mostarda. The specialty cocktail list is fun to explore, but the wines represent a carefully selected boutique collection. While innovation is prized here, it’s the classic tiramisu among desserts that really shines.
