The food at this place is UNREAL. I came here for lunch with girlfriend the day before Valentine’s Day and the attention to detail was insane. We shared the octopus salad to start and it was divine. I haven’t had a plate in years that made me feel the way I did as to when I had that octopus salad. I swear I was transported to another place from the euphoria that it brought. Then as the main course I had the stuffed burger which had such unique and exquisite flavors it’s almost an injustice to just call it a burger. Immense compliments to the chef who is an absolute genius and a master at their craft. Also tremendous shoutout to the staff who was excellent at explaining the plates, attending to our needs, and being all around just awesome humans. 10/10 recommend this place to anyone. So delicious, so unreal.

I LOVED this restaurant. Suggested by our hotel it did not disappoint. Great service and the food was fantastic. I had the burrata appetizer special and duck ragu - awesome! My husband had the stuffed burger and loved. We were in town visiting - and I highly recommend!

To start this was our first visit. Cafe
Amarcord was next on our ‘Restaurant To Do List’. My husband planned this dinner date for my birthday. The service was really good, and he wasn’t always around (my biggest pet peeve). With the necessity of having to wear masks, it was really hard to hear the list of specials. The veal special was really delicious. The duck ragú was really good, but nothing about it said WOW. We got 2 desserts which were delicious but VERY VERY small and as a result, too expensive. Overall, it’s a really good restaurant. A solid 4⭐️ We will definitely be back, after we try a few other spots on our list.

My boyfriend and I went there without a reservation to see if we could get a table. We were told they were booked for the night by a person behind bar.(she didn't eaven check. I guess hostess was not there at that time.)
I immediately checked opentable, were a few spots available that night. So I booked right away.
We were debating to have dinner eather cafe Amarcord or KS (first choice) do to great reviews.
Unfortunately KS was closed that night, so I really wanted to try at cafe Amarcord.
We ordered octopus salad (it was ok too much celery taste) cauliflower soup(good) carbonara (not much taste I have to ask salt) ricotta cheese pasta(it was ok)...we both didn't finish pasta.
My appetizer came first before my wine, we have to ask server to bring it and our pasta came 30 min after we finished our appetizers. We were not rushing...(Maybe we are used to NYC time) But that was too much gap.
Hoping that day or what our choice was missed .
We didn't try the dessert ( we are sweet lovers).

The hostess we met was nice and nice cozy atmosphere at there.
It was nice to see the restaurant was busy in this time.
