Pleasant little restaurant with friendly staff and good food at good prices. Importantly, they have TABLE CLOTHES which gives the visit a touch of class.

Visiting with family, two young children, we had dinner on Monday, December 14th. Balboa island was lit up with holiday lights. We reserved a table for six, actually the fragrance from the open door drew us in. We were seated in a room with a...More

Our local host raved about this place, but I think it has more to do with it's history, knowing the staff, and familiarity. All that usually coalesces into a restaurant that "you" love and have been going to for ages, but someone new will come...More

There were four in my party for lunch on a Friday, the only weekday that lunch is offered. The lunch menu looked good with most entrees costing $16-$18. The waitress ran through the list of 'specials', one being the sea scallops and lobster ravioli, but...More

Our family had seen Amelia's while visiting Balboa Island a couple years ago, and had read about it in a travel magazine for the Newport Beach area. After dining there ourselves in June, it's easy to see why Amelia's is a local favorite. If you're...More

Restaurant looks quaint from the outside, but it is just not that good. The food is sub par, just not that good and priced like it is fine Italian cuisine. In a place like this I expect excellent service, but it was just your typical...More
