Been a customer for 17 years. Quality of food and service is definitely declining. Ever since owner Claudia moved away, it's just not the same! The food was marginal, doesn't include salad anymore either! $7.00 for a house salad is disgraceful. At least three police cruisers flew by lights blazing during our visit. The neighborhood is declining too. So sad.

Consistency is the truest measure of performance. Not sure when we were last here, but it was many moons ago, and I remember having the penne Gorgonzola, which I ordered again tonight. And once again it was fabulous! In fact all our meals were! Service was good, we had a nice semi-private area (appreciated because we had two little kids... More

I love this restaurant I recently had dinner and it's been almost a year since my first visit. The place is not huge but so worth waiting for a seat because the dishes are DELICIOUS! Staff are very friendly and drinks are on point. You want really great tasting Italian meal MUST come here...you won't regret it.

We had heard such good things about Typical Sicilian and couldn't wait to try it out. We were finally able to go and were pretty disappointed. The place is very small, so even though I had called before I came in with my wife and 2 children, and was told there was no wait, 15 minutes later there was a... More

I came here craving the fried oysters, for some reason they didn't have them?? Oh well! We ordered the typical chicken penne and weren't disappointed any more. Huge amounts of chicken, penne, and spinach included in a portion. Lots of take home container made for next day lunch for both of us. Wish this place took reservations for small parties,... More

We were looking for a place in Springfield to celebrate my son's graduation from Springfield College in May of 2015 (it has taken me awhile to leave this review). All I can say is that it couldn't have been more perfect. The service was probably the best that I have ever seen and the food! Oh my! We have been... More

I have been to/ate at all of the "Big-Wig, supposed to be the best" Italian restaurants in springfield: red rose, adolfo's, frigo's, and of course Typicial sicilian. People look at the dining experience: Atmosphere, waitstaff, location, size, parking. All of this aside. The best FOOD is (hands down) Typical sicilian. I think that it is a small place, that goes...

Do yourself a favor and go there right now and order their Penne Typical....do it right now. It's the best meal you'll ever have, it will blow you away. We love Typical Sicilian and it's by far one of the best Italian restaurants in Massachusetts. It's a small intimate setting packed with amazing flavor! You won't be sorry!

We ate here over the weekend as part of a party of six. Haven't been since last spring. The menu has been shortened since then and is laminated and cheap looking. Also, now you have to "request" salad which is then served family style. The salad is literally a bowl of lettuce with no other vegetables. Our entrees were good.... More
