Recently visited Amici's on a Thursday evening. On the recommendation of friends who have eaten here several times, we opted to sit at the bar, which was definitely a good call. The bartender did a great job on our cocktails and he made solid recommendations for appetizer and dinner selections. The portions were very generous and the food was well... More

Went in for a Sunday get together. Wait staff was attentive, food delivery was slow. I think I'd have to try it again to get a better feel for the place.

Been going for years. Great food very very tasty. The apps could be skittle bigger. The calamari was very good but in my opinion the portion was small. We had the rib eye which was excellent ! Drinks and dessert all A+.

We have gone to Amici's several times and actually my son proposed to his wife there. The staff are amazing and the food is excellent. Always good food and service. They also have a drink called Amici's Punch which is my favorite drink. Romantic atmosphere.

We frequent this restaurant for a few reasons. First, it is close by and wouldn't be too much of a trek from New Haven. Second, service is spectacular as the wait staff are very attentive and very willing to accommodate many requests. I would rate this place highly among traditional Italian cuisine places. My favorite dish is the linguini with... More

Another spot on Trip Advisor recommendation. While searching for the restaurant after parking the car, a police car stopped the one of the officers immediately knew what we were looking for. He gave us great directions AND highly recommended Amicis. The martinis were perfectly shaken and of good quantity. Our dinner consisted of arugula salad, chicken saltimbocca and broccoli rabe....

We went here in Father's Day and every dish was amazing. Great service, so many employees at our table I am not even sure which one was our server. I had a special which was a pork dish and it was one of the best pork dishes I have had. We will be back.
