Met a friend there for dinner last week. It had been over a year since we had dined together. We never felt rushed and were treated wonderfully by the entire staff and manager. We had a very delicious dinner - shared two entrees, with both of us taking some home. Butternut ravioli was exceptional! Would definitely recommend - we're certain... More

I had read reviews for this restaurant already, then we came to town for my husband's job and to visit our friends. They highly recommended it and said they eat there often. We were lucky enough to have a beautiful evening out and we were seated on the patio with a beautiful view of the park and little lake across... More

I came with a huge group for a funeral luncheon. I expected typical funeral food, soggy mashed potatoes, cold chicken, overcooked green beans. We didn't get any of that. The food was DELICIOUS. It was the correct temperature, it was served in a timely manner, and the cheesecake was to die for. Cheesecake, at a funeral. Who would have thought?... More

This restaurant is unassuming from the street but inside it is charming with booths and tables set with white tablecloths. Waitstaff in all black and plentiful. We wanted for nothing the service was that good. The food was delicious. We both had veal which was tender and flavorful. Cocktails were well liquored and tasty. Bread basket was quite nice with...

Three of us family members ate dinner at this restaurant on a beautiful summer day - June 5, 2014. We sat on the patio which is on the sidewalk, next to main street. Across the street is the mill pond which is quite scenic on a sunny summer day. We shared a bottle of Chianti Classico red wine which was... More

We went there on a Saturday night. The service was fantastic and attentive. We had the veal Marsala and the veal saltimboca. Both were very tender and tasty. The tiramisu was moist and creamy- one of the best we've had in a long time. Only negative was the noise level.

We've been here twice and both times were opposite times, days, crowd. And both times were just fabulous. Today was Mothers Day Brunch. Last time was a quiet weekday lunch. The crowd and hectic atmosphere of today did not affect the high quality of the food and service - and neither did the easier pace of a weekday lunch. Service... More

Elegant, romantic, fine dining offering excellent service. Whenever my wife and i want to share a special evening out, it requires dinner at Ciao Amici's. When the weather is right (May to September usually), dinner outdoors is the ticket here. A view of the millpond and the everpresent ducks makes for a complete experience.

Not only did the kind owner wonderfully accommodate my extremely large Italian family of 30 for my mom's birthday, but his wait staff never left a water glass empty, had our food to us in a timely manner, and divided our checks perfectly without incident. This is not my first amazing experience here, and I guarantee you it won't be... More

Met up with a friend from high school.....we had many, many years of passed time to cover. This place was perfect for leisurely dining with attentive service. The server was very mindful of our desire to take our time, yet kept checking in periodically. My friend had a couple of nice glasses of wine. He had a good steak and... More
