A word from Applausi
Osteria Applausi (Applause in Italian) is one of three Italian restaurants owned and operated by the Marchetti family in Fairfield county. Osteria Applausi opened in Greenwich in 1994. Each customer is treated like family. Our food is authentic Italian food requiring only the finest and freshest ingredients, every cut of meat and fish is hand-selected and Maria makes handmade pasta daily. If you want to experience a true taste of Italy and be treated like one of the family, come to Osteria Applausi. Beppe Cornacchia, co-owner and manager of Osteria Applausi, has been a vital part of the restaurant since 2002. Prior to managing Applausi, Beppe lived in Tuscany since 1985 and worked in many successful Italian restaurants. He brought his vision of "La Cucina Italiana" to Fairfield County. Beppe also orchestrated the beautiful renovation of Applausi in 2010 to making it more metropolitan and giving it a sleek New York City feel in Old Greenwich.Continued

  • "Osteria Applausi is a fine Italian restaurant. The pasta, that is homemade, is superb. Eggplant starter was superb, delicate in one regard, rich in another. Service was efficient yet curt. The decor was changed to a darker more intimate interior..than in years past. Thematically, it was a bit lost..but overall pleasing. Andy Morse"

  • "We go so often now, it's funny, but what can we say - the place is great. The pastas are delicious, the pork chop always perfect. The staff get to know you (Abel is the waiter of all waiters). Just an all-around great place - can't say enough good things about it."

  • "Applausi's food was superb, but I knew it would be based on being a long time Columbus Park fan. Service was average at best but I gave them a pass due to it being Valentine's Day and the place was packed."

  • "My husband and I both got pasta dishes. Both pastas were made fresh and in house and they were spectacular. We will definitely visit again."

  • "While great food and a lovely atmosphere, the very high prices keep me from bringing certain friends for a casual, local dinner."

  • "People bring young children to this neighborhood gem, which is NOT inexpensive, so I am often surprised. Food is fabulous, wine selection very nice. Would like it more if I didn't worry about noisy children at the next table. Probably a function of being there on the early side of the evening, of course, so keep that in mind."

  • "Had a great dinner at Applausi, food and service was very good. A bit pricey but still excellent. The only issue was that we have to wait about 30 minutes for our table when we had a reservation for 8:30 and showed up about 10 minutes early. We waited at the bar which was small and crowded and we were kind of in the way of the waitstaff who were trying to get by with drinks and dishes. Otherwise, a very good meal. Would definitely recommend this place if you don't mind a little wait and an "energetic" noise level."

  • "What is better than this wonderful neighborhood restaurant? Not much. Appetizers are varied and delicious.The daily pasta specials, and regular menu pasta items created by Maria, one of the owners, are exquisite. The seafood here is also amazing. Try the Branzino. It is perfection! You are missing out if you are not headed here where people actually care to know you by name and greet you warmly at the door. Old Greenwich at its' finest!"

  • "Dinner on a Saturday night was wonderful. The restaurant was full but there was no problem having a quiet conversation. The service is always perfect, not intrusive. Try the pasta made by Momma. It is fantastic. I had red snapper with vegetables and wine. It was probably the best I have had. The food is always interesting and delicious. We always have a hard time choosing."

  • "We have been to Applausi many times and once again we had an amazing experience. Beppe, the maitr'e d/manager, runs the place as if he were at home in Italy overseeing the entire restaurant with style, class and a great vibe. He makes great recommendations on the food and wine. And the staff is courteous and friendly. Extremely high praise for this outstanding Italian osteria!"
