    Super experience! The only criticism is that the interior is starting to look a little dated.

    The wait staff did an excellent job considering how busy the restaurant was on Mother’s Day! Fast and efficient, and the manager even took time to find us the table we wanted. In addition, he also took our picture upon our request. The staff in general were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, and prepared with care.

    It’s a machine, they roll you in, and roll you out…quickly. Our server asked for our drink order and entree order at the same time. Never mentioned appetizers. We probably had 2 sips of our drinks when our salads arrived. Entrees came immediately on the heels of salads, no time to lollygag, or say, relax. Dessert came with no offer of coffee or an after dinner drink. It was all over in an hour. Sad. And not worth $100

    My wife and I were looking for somewhere new for our anniversary. This was a good find. The food was really good. The service was way better than I have had in a long time, anywhere. Very much not the typical post-Covid, barebones service. The only complaint I have is that it was pretty loud. A bit of white noise or noise dampening would be nice.

    Ciao Amici's is consistently amazing food and service. We've been going for at least 15 years for dinners and have held parties in their banquet room. Flavors are clean and fresh Italian. Servings are large. We're always happy with our meals!

    Cute interior, spacious booths, it was a monday evening and not a lot of others so was quiet. Food was good, price was fair, service was excellent. It was a birthday and they treated to a piece of cheesecake. Would recommend.

    Our server, Carly, was outstanding. Our food was slightly delayed due to a large party, but she regularly checked in and made sure we didn’t need anything and kept us updated on the wait. Probably the best service we’ve had in a while when dining out. The food was good, but not amazing like I remember it being. The cost went up quite a bit since the last time we were here. That seems to be the norm these days, but a $3 up charge for angel hair pasta vs regular spaghetti noodles seems a bit much. Overall, good dinner, but we wouldn’t rush back.

    We had an incredibly rude waitress. We were with another couple we had not seen in a year. She rushed us and was annoyed when we ordered Dessert, which we had to ask for and was not offered. Her whole demeanor was that we were an inconvenience to her and she wanted to flip her table. From the very beginning literally as we were sitting down she said I need your order because the big table came in, and I need to make sure you get your food. She then rushed us into everything and was hovering over us. It made for a very unpleasant experience overall.

    The experience starts out good. Their bread is amazing. I also really like their choice of mushrooms in the dishes. But later ugr I don't know how I feel about how they handle the situation in which there was an outside object in the food and they should absolutely triple check their dishwashing/food making process. Their attitude is good but I think the manager is very inexperienced in managing a restaurant and handling issues.

    pasta was very good, veal not so much. The veal diablo, while taste was good, was not tender at all. Would not order veal here again. Chicken in other pasta dishes seemed satisfactory.

    We made a reservation on open table. When we arrived we were seated immediately at a lovely booth in the front of the restaurant. The wallpaper and art make it feel upscale. Our waitress Britney was very good. Just the right amount of time between the calamari, salads and entrees! We did have to wait for the bread but there was plenty of tasty food. My daughter wanted dessert and chose crème brûlée. She said was wonderful and big enough to share. This was our first time here and will come again even though it was a half hour drive!
