    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.

    We returned here with a group of 8. Reservation was simple, and we we seated right away. The appetizers, meals and wine were all excellent. 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. Bread was warm, crusty on the outside and soft interior. Very generous portions. We all enjoyed our dining experience and plan to return.

    Our server asked us 4 times in 5 minutes after seating if we were ready to order dinner -- we were not expecting a leisurely dining experience with 3 teenagers but felt VERY rushed -- I get trying to turn a table but really?? We were out of there in 50 minutes so they were successful -- food was good, servings big but we were very disappointed with the curt service and the grabbing of our plates to bus the table the moment you put your fork down --

All in all as good as I remembered from eating there before the space was enlarged. Would recommend to others and go there again.

    Ate here as part of a small group prior to an Orioles game, so a late lunch. The first room with the bar is nice and has a homey, old world feel. We were led through a maze of rooms to the back in a room that seemed like an addition. It was very noisy and had all the charm if a trailer. The server was quick, but not overly informative or friendly. The food was a big disappointment. The bread was semi fresh fluffy white Italian. The onions in my husband's dish were practically raw. The sausage in the dish made it very greasy, like it was not drained properly. My gnocchi was over cooked and I didn't care for the meatballs. They had a weird taste. The sangria just tasted like watered down wine. There are much better restaurants in the area

    We accidentally stumbled onto this restaurant on our way through Baltimore about 6 years ago. It became our go to place every time we passed through Baltimore. The trouble was we could never remember the name of it. Each time we took a guess and got the right door. We've never been disappointed though. With friendly staff, good atmosphere and wonderful home style Italian food at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong at Amicci's!

    We came from Ohio and brought our kids to Amicci's because we love it so much, but a little disappointing this time. I requested seating in the bar area 2 days ahead of time and got seated on the top floor. We were told by the owner to call ahead if he wanted a dish that they use to make years ago and he would make sure he had it...so he called 2 days ahead and his staff took the message and said it would be taken care of. When we got there, the owner knew nothing about his request and they were not able to provide what he requested. We love the place and will continue to come when in the Baltimore area, but we were a little disappointed this visit.
