OUR STORY
THE AMBRA EXPERIENCE

Ambra is nestled in the heart of Hudson Street in the West Village, an area that has become among the city’s hottest and most trafficked hospitality neighborhoods. The restaurant offers an intimate dining experience with 70 seats, a private dining area inside, and 40 seats outside – designed to feel as though you were dining in a cafe in Italy.

JOHN DELUCIE
MEET THE CHEF

The executive chef is John DeLucie, the name behind famed restaurants like Empire Diner, The Lion, and Waverly Inn. He brings years of experience and a passion for serving exceptional food to Ambra, with a focus on quality from start to finish. The pizza dough is made with flour sourced from Italy, and pasta is made by hand or sourced from Naples.

THE TASTE OF ITALY
A CURATED MENU
Ambra features an authentic Italian cuisine menu with fresh bread, pasta, and desserts made on the premises. The menu highlights our commitment to true house-made elements and uses only the best ingredients. We aim to inspire an energetic, communal atmosphere that encourages sharing over multi-course dining.
BEVERAGE OFFERINGS
SIGNATURE DRINKS LIST
We also offer an extensive customer-curated wine and beverage program that compliments the menu and experience. We approach the beverage program with the same pride and commitment as our food, using only the finest and freshest ingredients in all our beverage offerings.
BEYOND DINING
THE ATMOSPHERE

The dimly lit room has a custom wood installation from floor to ceiling. The bar is also made of wood, with a beautiful handmade marble bar top and an antique mirror. A seasonal live floral installation further enhances what’s become a true Italian experience.
