so far the best restaurant I've been to in Little Italy! Service was excellent, bar was nice, and food was absolutely delicious.

Entrees are reasonably priced,
Entrees are reasonably priced, but do not include house salad, which is $3.00 extra per person. Entrees are good sized. The Chicken Delores and Veal Marsala were quite good. Calamari was tasty but some of it was a bit chewy. Excellent garlic bread and bread pudding dessert. We had a pleasant experience, the meal was a good value for the price, and we will go back in the future

Fabulous tasting dishes
We had excellent meals in our experience. The featured drinks were pleasant and complimented our meals. The antipasto special was superb and large enough to share among our four diners. Each entree was portioned correctly and all marveled at the taste. My caesar was dressed a little rich. The restaurant was busy, our wait staff was attentive and we were able to carry on conversation without being drowned out by surrounding tables.

Really lovely atmosphere and great food. With four of us, we all sampled a bit of everything. The Pasta Verde was fantastic, and the pesto sauce in the dish was creamy and not too oily at all. And the marinara in the gnocchi, penne, and veal parmigana was tasty and not too sweet. A great experience overall!

Little Italy Gem
Great martinis. Food was awesome, had trouble picking a favorite off the menu. Fresh bread and dipping oils.

Great dinner in a very nice
Great dinner in a very nice old world restaurant. I don't recommend tha calamari appetizer, overcooked and difficult to chew. The rest of the meal was fantastic.

This is one of the few spots in town that I can get my mom to leave the burbs for. It was a little more hectic that usual, due to the Firefighter convention, and block party, but as long as they serve the Pane Rotundo, I will keep going back

Amicci's-great service and food
I organized a work dinner for 18 people and one child. Amicci's was very accommodating when additional guests added on to our large reservation despite a large fire fighters' convention in the neigbhorhood that evening. The staff was very easy to work with and responsive to our request. When we arrived at 6 pm, they had a table in a semi-private room available for our group. The food was amazing, the Italian food I am used to from the St. Louis Hill neighborhood and can't get in DC. Portions were very generous and the service was attentive and equipped to dealing with a very large group. Though the restaurant is casual, the food was fresh and delicious. I enjoyed the house gnocchi with a cream sauce, proscuitto, red peppers and spinach.

Amicci's Best Deal in Little Italy
The food is good, portions are big, the service is fast and the prices are the best in Baltimore's Little Italy. The Chicken Deloris and Lorenzo are my two favorites there! Last Saturday night they did a special where for $20.00 you got salad, choice of entries, dessert and a soft drink. SUCH A DEAL!!!!

Flavors of Little Italy
Had an early reservation with my son for 5:30pm on a Monday which was booked online. We walked to the restaurant from the Inner Harbor (aprox. 10 mins.) and arrived slightly earlier than our reservation time. The staff promptly seated us at a nice table with a view of the street out front. Our waitress was prompt, attentive and courteous. This is a family restaurant and you can expect small children, so if that's not your thing, consider this. We were undeterred, however. The food was good. We took our time eating and there is a decent selection of wines. To me it captures the food and flavors of Baltimore's Little Italy well! I would recommend this restaurant based on our experience.

My family really enjoyed it!
Italian is always a hit with my family and this is somewhere that we would absolutely repeat. Not only were our dinners great but there was a fork fight to get the last bite of the amazing tiramisu.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian food anywhere!
Simply the best Italian food I've had anywhere, and I'm half Italian. Very reasonable too. Definitely get the garlic bread.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was wonderful, it was fresh and very fulling, the atmosphere was laid back & my waitress was wonderful. I would go back again.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a wonderful evening for my group. Two concerns are that they would not split up the check and one person cut her lip on a fork that had a jagged edge. The server was concerned, but did not bring the manager over. It was a fluke event though.

Time tested dining excellence
We love the food, service and location and it is well worth the hour plus travel time from Northern Virginia. The charm of the "Little Italy" neighborhood wears well. It is great to see the ongoing neighborhood improvements like sidewalk replacements and the obvious efforts in the general upkeep and maintenance. On our recent lunchtime visit, I was even able to find a parking spot in front of the restaurant and knowing that if luck was not with me, I could always park at the nearby public parking ramp. It is a low key place with character and consistently great food plus outstanding service.

Another fine dinner @ Amicci's.
Another fine dinner @ Amicci's. My wife and I look forward to dinner here whenever we come to Baltimore. The food is always good and plentiful. The service is responsive and friendly, Erica was able to make helpful suggestions. We will be back ...soon

Had a group of 9. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Shrimp Scampi appetizer was great.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious casual Italian
Family atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food, and large portions that make delicious leftovers...
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
You won't be disappointed!
Love the food here!!! We could have made a meal of just the garlic bread. The chicken Marsala was the best I've had. Everything is very reasonable including drinks from the bar.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always Admire Amiccis
Food is great - service is always attentive, it's just that this time we were relegated to a very busy noisy room, guess it was the middle room, which compared to the front room, it feels like a room in a church hall. Maybe it's time to make it as special as the main dining room and detour some traffic by rearranging the tables. Sammy did a nice job but appeared tired from a long day, nothing wrong, just lacked that usual spark. Understandable. Will be back soon with more newbie couples. Thanks.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is our favorite restaurant in "Little Italy." Food is always delicious and service is commendable. Highly recommend.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is really great! I am a big fan of their appetizer dishes!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is worth the trip for that alone!!!! It is a must for anyone who likes shrimp and garlic.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the restaurant, food, wait staff and atmosphere. I would highly recommend to any of my friends.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great. My husband
The food was great. My husband ordered the gnocchi and said it was the best he's ever had.
The spaghetti and meatballs were great too.

Celebration at Amiccis Little Italy
Great food but we had to sit next to a table full of 12 year old girls celebrating a birthday with little to no adult supervision and thus we couldn't even hear ourselves think much less talk to one another. Hate that it changed our opinion of an otherwise good restaurant in Little Italy but honestly we would not go back with a group for a special occasion as the inability to talk over the 12 year olds ruined our special evening.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been going to Amicci for years, since they opened up and we needed to travel to Baltimore to Johns Hopkins. It was a small place we had discovered with great food. It has since expanded to include a bar and is now a bigger space with the same great food, nice size quantities., inexpensive wine offerings.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food, service, and the ravens game was on for score checks. Definitely going back!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Welcoming and comfortable
Nothing pretentious here, which is just what we were looking for. If you are searching for a place that has great food, affordable prices, and casual, this is the place for you. Get the "Pane Rotundo," but be warned that you will not finish your dinner, but it will be worth it. Say "Doggie Bag!"
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My Favorite Little Italy Restaurant
Amicci's is and has been my favorite restaurant in Little Italy for years. Our server this time around was awesome. He was not only attentive but also funny and made our night even better. Thank you!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, unfortunately noisy
GREAT FOOD, great service. It was a fabulous find. Definitely needed reservations. But the noise level made it difficult to talk and even clearly place our order with the waitress. We were seated next to a large group at a long large table.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food Comfortable atmosphere
Very cozy comfortable place with casual dress. Went here for the first time. Great food, great service! Prices were great too! Would have liked some bread on the table with dinner. Will definately visit again when I return to Baltimore.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
great basic italian food
very casual, we had egg plant & veal parm, chicken delores & the Isabella; very good food; great garlic bread. friendly service; perfect for us after the Sox/Birds baseball game. nice location in little Italy; easy walk from the courtyard hotel; not elegant or fancy in anyway
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

Food was excellent and service was superb. Also reasonably priced menu. Highly recommend. We will be back.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great choice for out of towners!
We were planning to visit from out of state and knew we wanted good Italian food. We chose this restaurant randomly and were completely wowed by the experience. The food was inexpensive and delicious! Two in our group are quite picky, yet everyone was pleased, full and promising to return on our next trip to Baltimore.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Really enjoyed our Little Italy dinner. The food was definitely made with care. I've had better mussels; however, I easy them everywhere. I'm not sure anyone else would be as picky. I still ate everything. Salad was delicious. no one at my table had a good complaint and we had several allergies and food preferences. Thank you!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Solid classic Italian American food
Went here to carb load the night before the Baltimore marathon and it fit the bill. Good pastas, nothing too fancy or ambitious to risk stomach upset. Both of us enjoyedour dinners, and it was not super expensive. It was incredibly loud though. We could barely hear each other across the table.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Italian Restaurant
Excellent food taste, quantity, and overall experience. It is our favorite place in all of Little Italy!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed a meal with three
Enjoyed a meal with three friends in the bar area on a Monday night. Alex, the bartender was an exceptional server. Helpful,professional, all around great job. Happy hour prices are difficult to beat. Very good chianti at $3.50 per glass. Selected Hot food item at about 30% off the menu price. Menu is limited but the food is great. Looking forward to my next meal.

A very casual Italian eatery
Want terrific homemade Italian on a budget? Amici's is for you. In the heart of Baltimore's Little Italy, Amici's serves up terrific pasta, seafood, poultry and beef entrees all very reasonably priced. The Panne Rotundo is signature. My wife loves the Pesto Shrimp. I can always eat the Tortellini with peas & prosciutto but had Amici's Ziti with Italian sausage this time 'round - super. Hard to go wrong at Amici's.
Service is always spot-on and all courses are served promptly right out of the oven/fridge.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were wonderful. Large meal portions. Cannolis are great!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good and quick service.
Very good and quick service. But not rushed out after dinner was finished, if you want to sit and chat awhile.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Night at Amici's
We had a reservation at 6:00 pm and were seated promptly ........ hostess was very engaging and took us to a nice 2nd floor table
Our waitress took our drink orders promptly and gave us ample time to review our menu's
All courses were served promptly and food was all I had read about in the reviews ...... very good Italian cuisine
I will make it a point to patronize this establishment again

Like eating at Grandmom's house!
We were visiting colleges with our daughter and wanted a restaurant in a little town with character and not a chain. We found it! In the heart of Little Italy, it's like eating in your grandmothers home. Its a great place for a first date but you could also bring your children. We are from the Philadelphia area and it reminded us of restaruants in South Philly. It's a small place so definately make a reservation, especially on the weekend. Staff was friendly and the food was very good at a reasonable price.

Great Italian Food. Really
Great Italian Food. Really enjoyed everything. The garlic bread with cheese is awesome.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Early dinner for a work group, so hard to judge service when crowded. Food was great and service was great. Wine list was limited but very good. Went across the street to Vaccaro's for dessert. Out of town guests loved the overall experience. Nice lower-cost alternative to Sabatino's. I hope these restaurants and Little Italy survive forever. Rare experience in Eastern cities now--an authentic 1900's immigrant neighborhood.

Bang for your Buck
While seemingly very simple Italian style dishes, you do get plenty of food with them. And the taste was delicious too. The menu just seemed a little lacking in dishes that really, really screamed authentic Italian to me. But it is food that I would eat again, and again. It was delicious, and like I said plenty of it. The wine list was not notable, but very efficient in pricing and an overall good selection of different types of wines. Would have liked to seen a few more italian options offered personally, as well as a few more American. The bill was shockingly low for the amount of food we received. It was decently crowded, and there were big groups, so seems like a popular place. Would eat here again, especially with friends
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Cheese Bread!
Really enjoyed my dinner. We were seated right away, service was great and food was delicious. Portions were very large and the garlic cheese bread was really good. I'll be back.
