My wife and I were given a gift certificate for this restaurant so we decided to try it out. We were told it would be a 35 minute wait but we decided to stick it out. Saturday night it is extremely crowded. We were seated within 25 minutes upstairs where there was much less noise. Downstairs it is extremely noisy. For the appetizer we ordered the cod croquettes which my wife liked a lot. These were codfish and potato cakes fried in Italian bread crumbs. For the pizza my wife ordered pizza with mozzarella cheese, arugala and cherry tomatoes. I tried the Puttanesca pizza with anchovies, mozzarella cheese, rapini and other ingredients. I liked the taste though it was fishy. What I liked best about the Puttanesca pizza is that it had a strong flavor though I separated some of the anchovies from the pizza. Before you order be sure that you want something fishy. Otherwise the flavor was good and somewhat salty. The crust is hard to cut with a knife so maybe the staff should offer to cut your pizza for you. Service was very good considering the restaurant was mobbed. Cost for two people was around $46 including tip. We did not consume any drinks or dessert.

Two Amys is a good place to go with a family. Our two granddaughters, 7 and 9 love this place. The pizza is wood fired and very good. The other things on the menu look good but we can not say that we've tried them.
The down side for us is a minor one. We are of a goodly age, and Two Amys is a bit on the noisy side. If we were going out by ourselves we would probably choose somewhere else, but as stated, our family loved it.

We popped in for dinner on on a chilly evening. We had a wait and we enjoyed the bar with it's antipasto bar and hanging prosciutto. Walls are lined with bottles- lots of good choices- but we settled on the "wine on tap" just because..and it was good! We had the fried rice & cheese balls, green salads, citrus salad is not to be missed and then PIZZA- the crispy thin delicious kind we ate in Italy...it was like a mini vacation! The restaurant was packed and lively and loud. Apparently, everybody enjoys Two Amy's. We will be back!

We came on a Saturday night found the restaurant lively with all tables filled and a short wait. The thin crust pizza is perfect for a meal or snack with drinks and friends. We had a good time and would recommend will recommend to friends.

It is a very busy restaurant. We got there around 4 p.m. and the restaurant was completely full. We had pizza, and a whole set of appetizers which were all very unique, flavorful and amazingly delicious. Even our teen and pre teen children finished everything on their plates, including vegetables!
Friendly, quick service. But don't even try going there without reservations!
