Amalfi is easily my favorite restaurant in LA. The atmosphere is very beautiful, relaxing, romantic, and perfect for special occasions, like anniversaries. Their cheese plate is to die for, completely perfect with a glass of Pinot Griggio. The staff is warm and nice, not to mention accomodating. I wasn't happy with the spicy sauce (I'm not a big spicy person) that came with my fried calamari appatizer, and they didn't even blink an eye to whip up something else I'd be happy with. My boyfriend and I have been there several times, and have never been disappointed in any way by the service, food, or ambiance. It's become that place we say ""OH, when you're in town we HAVE to take you to Amalfi!""
Pros: Wonderful food, great wine and cheese selections, friendly and accomodating staff
Cons: On the expensive side, so not for everyday dining - but utterly perfet for special occasions
