Fantastic!

I would rate Amici's beyond Excellent if possible -- my absolute favorite restaurant. QUALITY food -- fresh and prepared wonderfully. I've been coming to Amici's for many years and have never been disappointed. No doubt about it -- the best restaurant in Shelton and the surrounding areas.

For starters I tried the special of Baked Manicotti topped with fresh Arugula. This was a great combination and was delicious. The Caesar Salad was also very good. As main courses I had the Shrimp and Scallops in a Vodka Sauce. This was served over Penne Pasta and was excellent. The sauce was very flavorful and the Scallops were cooked... More

We eat here quite frequently, whether it's just sitting at the bar or celebrating our son's graduation or New Year's dinner, the service is always awesome and the food is consistently delicious. We love Amici's!!

Went with a friend for dinner before theater on a Saturday night. Did not have reservations but it was early enough to be seated promptly. Nice salad made with greens. I had the Pasta with broccoli rabe, sausage and cannellini. So delicious I ate every drop. My friend had the sole Florentine which she also enjoyed. Our server was helpful... More

I came there tonight to celebrate closing on a house. The service was excellent as usual but the food was very disappointing. I have come there regularly now for 2 years. The eggplant panko special was served on old yellowing arugula, yet it was still cooked perfect and the balsamic delicious, but the veal chop topped with prosciutto and motz... More

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Fairfield county of any kind but especially when comparing it to other similar Italian restaurants. The food is always excellent and the waiters are very friendly and a pleasure to dine with. You really can't go wrong with the classic dishes like chicken parm or the Bolognese sauce over pasta!

Went here last night on a whim but we've been here before. Usually food is good but not great--on par with other good Italian restaurants. Last night, however, they were offering a special for the night of blackened salmon over lobster risotto with spinach. I usually get salmon wherever I go because I love salmon and don't make it at...

Have dined at Amici's numerous times and have been pleased with my meal every time. Food was tasty and well prepared each time I have visited. Will continue to eat there as the selection is not vast but ample.

Had a Valentine Dinner at Amici where we've always enjoyed good food and service. Although cutting some slack for a very busy night- Amici still fell short of its previously set high bar. We arrived promptly in time for our reservation at 5:30pm and was seated immediately- then we were accosted by wait staff (2x) for a drink order before... More
