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.

Delicious Italian food, lovely atmosphere and great service. I had one of the best bolognese sauce that I have ever had! The pounded Parmesan veal chop is incredible! If you love and appreciate real Italian food, don't miss out on this restaurant! Mangia!

Great menu with phenomenal service, awesome food and perfect ambiance for a nice, quiet dinner. Parking was a little tight, but it was very well worthwhile when I got into Amici's and sat down, drank some fine wine and enjoyed awesome app's and a beautiful plate of homemade pasta. DELICIOUS!

Whenever office mates wanted to celebrate a work anniversary, we often chose Amici. Over the course of nearly 20 years, we have had fine dining in this smallish town which is the home of many great eateries. The service is laid back and while that would be appreciated on an evening outing, lunchtime reminders have to be repeated in order... More

We stopped in with a party of 8 to celebrate a graduation. We had made a reservation and were seated within a reasonable time. We spend a few minutes at the bar and had cocktails. The seated menu selections were great and food was delicious. Server was attentive. We found parking in the bank lot in the area.

We have been to Amicis numerous times and the food never disappoints. Service is well orchestrated and food variety is good. This past Saturday night, even at 6:00 PM, was noisier than I remember. It was hard to converse over the background chatter. From now on it will be a weekday dinner destination for us.Overall, it is really an above... More
