Amalfi Ristorante Bar Restaurant Review

: A sleek, attractive restaurant with warm earth tones, candlelit tables, sheer curtains and a fireplace, Amalfi is a convivial place in which to enjoy solid---and not always predictable---trattoria fare. Thin-crusted pizzas are good for sharing, and a respectable roster of pastas includes pumpkin ravioli with braised short rib in a mascarpone-sage sauce, fettuccine with smoked salmon and English peas in a pink sauce, and spaghetti bolognese. A Barolo-infused risotto, intense in terms of both appearance and taste, is a worthy choice. Entrées feature Cajun-seared tuna in lime-chive beurre blanc and rack of lamb. There's even fish ‘n’ chips and a half-pound blue cheese-topped burger. The restaurant is co-owned by comedian Adam Carolla, and after dinner you can head upstairs to the Room 5 lounge for an eclectic mix of music and comedy.
