There are so many choices when you want Italian food - in the immediate area, there is a chain pizza/Italian, there is a high-end (read: $$$) restaurant, numerous pizza places, and then there are more places outside of Chelmsford. BUT, I don't see any reason why anyone would go to any place else when they could eat at Amici's. Amici's serves some of the finest Italian food that I have ever had in the area and surrounding area, including the North End of Boston.
Amici's is in a smaller store-front space in the Summer St. Marketplace strip mall. There is seating for ~25 in tables of 4 and 2s. In addition, the restaurant does a busy take out business. The decor is simple, but clean and organized.
The menu includes a selection of appetizers (including home-made soup of the day), salads, sandwiches, pasta, entres, and pizza (specialty, and build your own). I cannot say that I have had many of the appetizers - we usually reserve our appetite for the main meal. We also usually fill up on the fresh-baked rolls :-) I have had the salads, and even the house salad is made with romaine, and includes red onion and croutons in addition to the usual tomato and cucumber. Between my family and myself, we have sampled most of the menu, but our favorites continue to be the Marsala Chicken (very sad when they stopped making the veal Marsala). This is seriously the best Marsala I have ever had. They also have a chicken Marsala sandwich which is very tasty. I also love the eggplant parmesan. All the entres come with pasta, and the portions are very generous and there is usually enough to take home.
If you eat in at the restaurant, you get table service. The wait staff have always been excellent - very friendly, helpful, and efficient. We are almost always there with the kids, so bringing the bread right away and the kids drinks in covered cups is really helpful.
The prices are very reasonable. I believe the chicken marsala meal is around $10 now - the entres/pasta are from $8-12.
I honestly cannot think of one criticism of this place - I just think it's great.
