Food was good, service could use a bit of improvement. We reserved a table inside but upon arrival the hostess informed that they only had outside tables (too chilly for us). An inside table was eventually made available but we didnt understand what the confusion was (our reservation was acknowledged). We only heard about the specials by listening to another waiter telling an adjoining table. We would return for the food, which we enjoyed, but felt that the service was a bit disjointed....

We really appreciate the healthy options there, and their attention to my wife's gluten allergy. They have figured a way to make healthy food taste delicious. Particularly enjoy the calamari!

Lunch was quiet, I don’t think people have discovered this place yet. The food was delicious. We had the beet salad and split a mushroom pizza. Both were flavorful and fresh. I’d visit again.

We had stopped by here for lunch the previous week and had a great experience. The dinner menu looked good, so we came back. Definitely glad we did. The items we had were the petite mezze for a shared appetizer; and for dinner we had the salmon dish and the seafood pasta. Both were delicious - good portions. The salmon came with broccoli florets and baba ganoush. It was excellent. The pasta was equally good. Topped dinner off with a tiramisu and port. The wine list hosted a number of wines, and we chose an Italian red blend. It was the perfect pairing with our dinner.

Overall, an extremely pleasant and relaxing dinner experience. We will definitely be back.

Very nice place, menu had a nice selection. Food was good, not great. I got the pasta with mushroom sauce. It basically had no seasoning. Branzino was good. Server was very nice, but maybe they were short on staff because service was slow, even though it wasn't very crowded.

We made a reservation for 9:15 on New Years Eve. When we arrived, the hostess looked at her watch and rolled her eyes before greeting us (well I guess that was her greeting?). We explained that we had a reservation through Open Table, but asked if they were closed because of the greeting we received. She proceeded to tell us that we had a reservation so they will seat us, but they are not staying until the ball drops. We ended up leaving as it was just very rude and not how we wanted to start our evening. Very unfortunate because we were looking forward to trying the food at Amfora, but hospitality really matters, especially when we are big eaters and drinkers and know we would have spent a lot of money!

We made this reservation specifically for outdoor seating which was confirmed twice. However when we arrived at 6:15 on time there was no table outdoors for two .
We were told they don’t honor open table outdoor reservations anymore.
After conversations with the head waiter they eventually brought out a high top table for us.
It was my husbands birthday and making a reservation in advance was certainly an expectation we expected to be honored. Sitting at a high top was not comfortable we needed a regular table.
Food is always good but be aware they don’t honor reservations !

Service was horrible. Had to pour our own water and wine. Food sat for a long time before delivered to out table. Server never came to our table to check if we needed anything.
Took over two hours to eat. Short staffed was their excuse but the real reason was they don’t know how to run a restaurant.
Will never go back!

Service was spotty and with an attitude.
Had to send the lobster bisque back - lukewarm and not up to expectations.
Octopus was excellent. Gnocchi lacked flavor/seasoning.

Everyone in our party of 6 had positive comments about the food. We originally wanted to sit outside but the rain prevented that. The tables and chairs outside are more suitable for a pizza parlour than for fine dining. We went inside and the ambience was very inviting Service was a bit slow and our waitress not the most attentive but all and all we will return again. The menu could be a bit broader to suit all peoples tastes.

I met my friend here for lunch and we both enjoyed the Mediterranean beet salad and it was really quite lovely and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant right now because they have plenty of outdoor seating and I'm sure would open up umbrellas if you needed shade.

Dined outside with a friend the evening of 12/2. The service was a bit slow due to being short-staffed. During this time of the pandemic, good quality help is hard to find and thus the General Manager was also our server. The food, however, was excellent. Everything we had was so delicious, well-seasoned and just about perfect. I had smoked salmon appetizer and burrata/tomato appetizer. Also sampled mushroom fettuccini which was very good. Dessert was baklava with vanilla gelato. Again wonderful!! If you like well prepared food, don't be worried about the prices.

Overall I thought everything was quite fine. I love the grilled Bronzino. My husband had the duck which was the special that me and he found a little dry but we would not hesitate to go back to amphora. It’s very good value for the money. It is a little bright inside so not very romantic but the food and good service more than carried the evening.

Not enough staff for adequate service ( waiting for drinks, refills etc. ) food was good, but semi cold, plates were not warm. We had octopus, seafood pasta special, and branzino special. All in all well cooked, but lacks rafinesse, especially given the rather stiff prices.

Nice interior; we thought the menu to be somewhat limited, but they offer specials. I would classify it as $$$$ pricey. Indoor and outdoor seating is available; it was not crowded when we went there so it was easy to get a table.

We love Amfora and especially appreciate the ability to sit outside to dine. The food is all 5 star food. The wait staff was terrific and got everything just about right. Our only gripe was not having our table for 8 ready when we arrived to claim our reservation. Having 8 people stand around waiting for 15 minutes was not pleasant. To be fair, the food was worth the wait. I love the grilled branzino and my husband always loves the short ribs. Everyone had a different dish and our crowd was happy.

Selected this restaurant based on the great reviews and had high expectations. Ordered the osso buco, Lamb shank and octopus. All three dishes were bland, but on the positive side the two meat dishes were very tender. Service was friendly but spotty. There are too many good restaurants out there for us to return.

Was here for dinner on an off night so the rather large restaurant had plenty of room for seating and low noise levels. The food was what I’ll describe as exceptional. I had the lamb shank that was done perfectly and very tasty. Another dinner we ordered was the duck. Honestly have to say, ordering duck even at the finest restaurants is hit and miss. The duck here was prepared perfectly and was delicious. I will recommend and return.

Amfora is a true gem, a very welcome addition to Bonita Springs! I have not had a bad meal there yet. The Manager and Sommelier, Jorge, is knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming, making you want to return again and again. He has put together a great wine list. There is not one dish on the menu I wouldn’t try, which will be difficult, because I love everything I’ve eaten there and always want to order it again. The stuffed squid appetizer is amazing, as is the lamb shank, and any fish entree I’ve had is creative and impeccably prepared. The Chef/Owner is a Master!
