The meals were delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive. The parking is a bit of a challange. I would recommend the Penne ala vodka.

I have driven past this location countless times but never paid it much attention. Recently, I stopped in with my girlfriend at the end of a long day to grab a bite and boy was I surprised! The staff wear Cafe Amici t-shirts which was a little off-putting at first, but their service made up for it. The wait staff... More

My wife and I went here for our 3 year anniversary - awesome food. I had the crab risotto, my wife had a shrimp/pasta dish, and we had fried cheese balls and pear/Gorgonzola/honey pizza for appetizers. The pear pizza was insanely good, and the crab risotto was outstanding. Would definitely go back.

On a visit to my son & daughter in law we enjoyed a relaxed, casual meal that was as if we were eating at home. The special appetizer ANDY was spicy and delicious, their unique house dressing (don't miss it) should be savored slowly and the shrimp Napoletone was perfect with artichoke and sun dried tomato. All served at a... More

Inviting, busy, warm and welcoming. Local, easy and generous with portions. Bar staff is fairly seasoned and quite good at making even a single guest feel as part of the "neighborhood family". I just tend to sit at the bar, solo--seems like the dining room is bustling for all the right reasons. Cold beer, delicious food and quite a nice... More

I see it as a perfect candidate for kitchen nightmares. Just got back and I am so disappointed I have to say something. My husband I made the mistake of getting dressed up when it's a very casual restaurant and I honestly felt like we were looked down upon like "who do they think they are?" We were offered the...
