This is a solid Italian restaurant in a sea of wannabes. The appetizers in particular were excellent, as was the service. The prices are also quite reasonable. Highly recommended.

Our family night out for a celebratory 75th-birthday was absolutely perfect, thanks to Typical Sicilian. It's a cozy restaurant with a really nice wine list, incredible waitstaff and simply delicious, Sicilian food. We started with Fried Sicilian Artichokes and Shrimp Typical. The house sauce in the Shrimp Typical is AMAZING!! It's a family recipe loaded flavor and freshness. We then... More

Wonderful Sicilian food in the heart of Springfield. Lots of garlic. Everything I've had has been excellent. Very reasonably priced.

Family run business, with a great chef and atmoshpere, and huge portions. You'll be bringing some home for lunch - and it's still great. If I had to pick my favorite restaurant - this is it.

My family and I have been coming here for years and I'm finally writing a review after having an amazing birthday dinner experience. First off this is fresh Sicilian food that you will not find anywhere like it in Western MA! You are treated like family, and we are felt welcome every time we come here. The food is extremely...

Last night was probably my 25th visit to TS but I have never reviewed it because I tend to only write reviews for places I travel to. However, I realize that people traveling to our area need to know about this awesome restaurant. (totally unselfish move on my part because I really don't want the wait to get longer) I... More

"Typical" is a great southern Italian restaurant. All food is cooked to order so there can be a wait and they do not take reservations for a party of less than six.

I took a few friends out to their original spot a few years back and the food was authentic and perfect. The whole experience was great until the waitress misplaced my credit card. The waitress was very apologetic and was looking everywhere. Then from nowhere the owner came to our table, her first words were, "you'll get your card back,... More

We came to this restaurant when we were visiting family about a year ago and then made sure to come back. We frequent many high end Italian restaurants and we feel the food at this restaurant is right on the top of our list. I will say the wait can be a bit long and the size of the restaurant... More
