The food here is very good. The location is right in the middle of Main Street and across the street from the Mill Pond. During nice weather, you can eat outside then take a stroll on the bridges over the ponds. If there are children with you, is is a very nice play area across the street and a number... More

This place truly amazes me with its service and delicious entree's. We went as a group for lunch. The service from Stefanie and Robin was exceptional. It is hard to please a group of 20 people but they exceeded our expectations. I asked the waitress what she thought was the best thing on the menu? Her answer was the Chuck... More

We stayed in the Restaurant at a Tuesday night. The place was buzzing. The service staff was friendly and very attentive. The food was well prepared. As mentioned we booked with approx 20 people and we have had a set menu. The quality of the food was surprisingly good.

Warm and inviting atmosphere. Owner always greets his guests and assures excellent service. Italian American menu, best Calamari in our area. Fair pricing, great wines. Will return regularly.

Ciao Amici is our default neighborhood Italian restaurant. Everybody should have one. Food is creative, tasty and never disappointing. Environment is always upbeat, happy. Wine list is great though I wish they'd offer more Italian reds "by the glass" instead of bottles.

I really enjoyed the mussels, spicy and flavorful. A little pricey, a decent value for a night out. I like the variety of wines, service is friendly, try it you will like it.

We had a reservation at 6pm on a Saturday and were glad we did. Crowded, but not noisy. Very extensive wine selections. The seafood chowder had large pieces of seafood, not loaded with potatoes that you find at other places. The chicken gorgonzola had a sauce that was unbelievably delicious. The scallops were large done perfect, which too many restaurants... More

Went on a Friday during Lent on a whim and there were at least ten no meat/fish entrees with one special, an grilled amberjack, that was excellent. I would go back in a heartbeat.
