We frequently cafe amici , we enjoy the bar area. GF pizza ( red onion and mushrooms with red sauce ) , sauteed calamari (not breaded) hot is perfect. Interesting martini's at the holidays. Service always warm and friendly like a neighbor hood restaurant should be! A go to place in Spring Glen area of Hamden.

This place has a varied menu and the restaurant was quite busy for sunday night. Loved the atmosphere, and the food suprised us. We had the calamari siciliano appetizer, we love spicy peppers with our calamari and this was a different and enjoyable take on it! For dinner my husband had the ravioli and side of meatballs...i had shrimp puttanesca... More

My wife and I had family surprise us from far away. I hadn't seen my cousin in 51 years. We were asked if there was a "special" place? - Sure is! Amici! My wife and I arrived early enjoying cocktails in the bar where it seems like everyone is a friend. My family shared great food and memories and everyone... More

My husband I went there on a late afternoon. We had appetizers, fried mozzarella and squash flowers! If you ever have the opportunity, try the flowers! They were stuffed with cheese, and fried to perfection. Slight hints of honey and vinegar. Delicious! An Italian dish, which I have fried many times, no way near as good! Would love their recipe!...

Awesome restaurant, a great variety of menu items to choose from. Eggplant Parm is my favorite. The owner is always there and comes around to meet and talk to the patron's, always asking if everything is ok. The bar is filled too with great music playing and everyone is happy and very friendly. A welcoming place to come enjoy great... More

I have eaten here many times and always get a tasty meal prepared with my food allergies in mind. The wait staff are always courteous and certainly considerate of my food allergies. They never act like it is troubling and relay my limitations to the chief --the result is always a good meal. During the summer months they have a... More

We were in the area on a late Sunday afternoon and I needed to make a quick choice for dinner. It looked dark and quiet but we were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted and seated quickly. We received our drinks, water and bread for the table quickly as well. Within 15 minutes the restaurant was filled which says a lot... More

My dinner was very good. I had eggplant parm and it was a generous portion. Sauce was good. The service was good too. The owner comes around and asks if everything is good which I think is nice.
