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

My husband was celebrating his birthday and has always wanted to try this restaurant. We called 4 days in advance to make a reservation. We specifically asked for a quiet table meaning not being on top of another table. Upon our arrival we were seated at a table three feet from another table and to the left was a table... More

The place is very classy, neat and clean. The staff was helpful and very courteous. The menu is kind of limited ,and some items seem to be a bit. but the drinks were strong and the wine was very nice.

We went to have dinner here with friends and were pleasantly surprised. It is a small restaurant in downtown Shelton and has a real vintage feel. I felt like I stepped back in time to the days where you can just find an amazing Italian restaurant in your neighborhood. This place is classy and the atmosphere was very European. I... More

People in connecticut know italian food. I was born and raised on it and this restaurant brings me back home. Fresh local bread that is crusty and hot from the oven served with good olive oil not butter. We ordered a piccata yellowtail special that had a light but flavorful sauce over spinach sauteed with garlic. Only complaint if you... More

My wife and i have been there a couple times now and we have also brought our family there once we have seen how good this place is. I notice the same people working there which is a good sign for employee loyalty. We were greeted by a nice middle aged man that asks for our drink order and also... More
