    Our experience began to erode immediately with the gruffness of the Host/Doorman: Were finally seated 20 mins after our reservation time (Thursday night)in a back room with zero ambiance, zero acoustics, and evidently zero climate control. All 4 of us, including my wife, known for always being cold, were sweating and uncomfortable. (In October!)(Requested AC) Food was adequate, but nowhere close to compensating for all the other shortcomings of this evening. If you happen to go to Ammiccis and they attempt to seat you in the back request another table, or leave and go to the local Firehall for a better experience. We expected a casual dining experience, so this was not mistaken expectations, this was just a poor restaurant experience.

    Been eating in Little Italy for a long time and Amicci's has always been our go-to place. We cook Italian at home so Italian out has to be good. The gnocchi sings and so did all the other pasts, chicken and shrimp dishes. Thanks, Amicci's. Don't change.

    Every dish we ordered was fantastic. Calamari appetizer was great. Portion sizes were large. We were a large party so we were seated upstairs in a room that made us feel like we were sitting in a private section of the restaurant. Cannot wait to return to Baltimore and sample more of the menu.

    I said this place was kid friendly and romantic it may seem contradictory but Amiici's has some many nooks and crannies its possible to have a large boisterous group in one area which we did and a spot for romantic couples around the corner and down the hall which I also saw. It was good food, a GREAT House appetizer, and a fun time for my group.

    My husband and I and two other couples had dinner at Amicci's. I had requested a quiet spot and they seated us in room at the back of the restaurant that was relatively quiet. We could easily carry on a conversation. We had the Pane Rotunda appetizer. It was delicious and just the right amount for each of us. If there are less than 4-6 of you, it might be too large. Speaking of large, the portions are very large! And delicious. Everyone was happy with their meal. We wanted a nice sit-down spot that wasn't too formal. Amicci's was the perfect choice.

    I have not been to Amicci's in at least a decade and back then, it was my favorite restaurant. I cannot recall why I stopped going - so I decided to give it a try. I am pleased to share that the food was exactly as I remembered it- perhaps even better! We celebrated my daughter's 15th birthday and everyone enjoyed their entrees. We had great service and everyone who served us was more than friendly. It is officially back on my favorites list!

    The food was delicious and the restaurant was in the cutest part of town- Little Italy! After dinner and yummy dessert we walked to our car; which by the way was in a nearby lot but was $10 to park!!That was a downfall but my husband and I would surely go again if we could find cheaper or even FREE parking which we looked up online and found but it turned out not to be free; we were disappointed with that because we just moved here from New York(not from the city). Anyway, back to the food and fun!We picked up our lawn chairs, water bottles and cozy sweatshirts and sat down for a movie night projected off the side of a building. It was so much fun and the people surrounding were absolutely pleasant!And not to mention there was FREE popcorn!

    Amicci's fit our dining preferences...walking distance from the harbor, casual, moderate prices. Unfortunately, the food was just okay. Caesar salad was good, but almost over-dressed. Penne La Rosa was fine, the shrimp were cooked properly, but there weren't too many. Food did come out quickly. Almost too quickly, as we hadn't finished our salads. My cocktail tasted like Kool-Aid - Lil It'ly Lemonade made with Vodka, Lemonade, Strawberry Puree, and Basil. The strawberry tasted fake and there were 2 basil leaves in the glass with no basil flavor. It had potential to be a good drink, but was executed poorly. My last visit to Amicci's was about 10 years ago and I won't be returning. I can make better Italian food at home.

Our waitress was friendly and reasonably quick to respond to our needs. Whenever we come to Baltimore for a concert, we always start the night at Amicci's. I have never been disappointed in 5+ years of coming here. We have learned to bring a cooler for the leftovers.

    We had visited this restaurant while visiting our older son going to school in Baltimore and liked it enough the first time, returned with both of our boys, the youngest now at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. The food our 2nd time around was just as good as the first. Great selection, good portions, and great prices - it's like eating homemade Italian food someone's grandmother would make! We had a table upstairs in a room with just a few other tables which made it easy to carry on a conversation and not be overwhelmed by noise you might experience at a much larger restaurant.

    I'm a garlic enthusiast, seriously, I love garlic, but Amicci's put so much of it in their salad that it was bitter and completely overwhelmed everything else on the plate. I found the same problem in the spaghetti with clams in white sauce. Sure the portion was huge, and there were lots of chopped clams (plenty of sand too), but the major note in the dish was GARLIC! I could barely taste the seafood it was so overpowering. Oddly enough the garlic bread with cheese was perfect. My husband had Penny's Tortellini, it was pedestrian at best. We will not be going back.

    Nothing fancy, which is what they claim, but wonderfully prepared and presented "at home" dishes. Eggplant parmigiana and tortellini with ragu sauce were excellent.
