Very nice restaurant with very good food and service
A wonderful restaurant. The food is always exceptional. The staff makes you feel like you are at home. This is our favorite place to eat. We are lucky to have this great restaurant.
Perfect dinner with friends. My dinner was superb, a light salad to start and delicious veal scaloppini was delightful.
Nice atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, excellent food (as with all Marchetti Family restaurants). Dinner with friends lasted 3.5 hours (by our choice), and we were given complimentary limoncello after dessert.
We LOVE Applausi! Always a perfect meal.
Applausi is one of the top five restaurants in Fairfield County! The food is delicious and, in my opinion, is authentically Italian cuisine. The wait staff is impeccable; anticipating the every need of their customers. The owner is always present and sincerely welcomes every one of his diners. He makes one feel at home. I would highly recommend Applausi to anyone who appreciates fine food in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere.
Love this restaurant. Great food and service. Highly recommend it!!!!!
From start to finish, we had an excellent experience. The food was delicious and the service was personal and professional. Well done!
Applausi is a fine place to dine and has earned a good reputation among its regular customers, who recommend it highly.
Applausi never disappoints. It’s a family favourite for years.
Food was fantastic, however the service was not. Very slow.
Early New Year's Eve dinner - trout and lightly sautéed zucchini - amazingly good! Chicken Milanese also scored very high marks!! Always good in all ways!!
Excellent New Year's Eve dinner! The ambiance was lovely and the service excellent...
We had a delicious enjoyable dinner.
The restaurant is very cozy but very loud. My wife's dish was tasty, tender and we'll presented. I on the other hand had the brinzino. It was kind of bland and had several small bones to contend with. The portion was very small and included a tiny piece of potato and 3 unseasoned pieces of brocolli. A glass of wine was 15 dollars which seemed very over the top for this type of establishment.
Outstanding food and excellent service. Love the shrimp and white bean appetizer. Great Caesar salad! The Baked Polenta Crusted Cod served over Spinach, with Fava Beans, Sweet Peas, Corn and Grape Tomatoes in a delicate White Wine Sauce was excellent; as well as the spaghetti and meatballs. We look forward to our next visit! Love Applausi!
Outstanding food! Service was wonderful until we finished our meal and then felt rushed. Would have lingered and had dessert had it not felt so “pushed”. There were other tables available so it wasn’t about people waiting.
Outstanding dining experience. While very very busy, service and food were the best!!
Delicious carbonara and osso bucco. Little loud but not restaurants fault. Just a shrieking diner nearby. Nice ambiance and good service.
Amazing restaurant. Have been going there for years. Highly recommend
Very good all around in every way
Due to a street fair in town, getting to the restaurant was a bit of a mess. The restaurant was extremely busy but they handled all the people that likely came in from the street fair well. Food as always was excellent but the service seemed rushed at times. I will write the rushed service off as part of the crowds.
Service was incredibly slow.
The food was quite good, especially grilled calamari. Decent wine list. Dinner including wine, a shared appetizer, a main, and shared dessert, and wine came to about $100 each. The service is slow, which is a mixed blessing if you want to spend a long time hanging out.
Food was really good! Place was just with few tables. We were looking for a nicer crowd.
Always excellent food and good service. A worthwhile spot in the area.
Delicious Italian food!!! Excellent service. Easy to have private conversations. LOVE LOVE LOVE Applausi!
Was recommended by our Uber driver so highly that we had to try it. He lived locally so we felt he would know. He was spot on correct. Great restaurant and very happy we went there for a very special occasion. Highly recommended.
Excellent meal all around - salads, pasta, trout, service and ambience.
We are devoted customers of Applausi. The food is delicious...always. You can always hear the conversation and the ambiance is nice without being too fancy. It's perfect for an evening out with friends, family or your sweetheart.
Fantastic food and service as always!
Always great and they treat you like family. Many pasta dishes are homemade and this is true Southern Italian cuisine. The Osso Bucco is great as is the squid ink pasta I had.
Applausi is a welcoming and fun restaurant. The specials are interesting and the service is great.
This is a favorite neighborhood spot. We love everything about it. Though not touted as "kid friendly," our 11-year-old granddaughter requests Applausi often - children are treated well. All courses are good - we've never been disappointed. Apps and salads are excellent. Sole special was excellent (all fish entrees are good), and of course the pastas are great.
Food is excellent - a talented kitchen. Service is attentive and professional. Always a great place for authentic Italian.
Excellent food and service.
Delicious meal - not to be missed.
One of the best restaurants we've been to in quite some time. The food was stellar, the service was outstanding and the decor perfect. 10/10
We always enjoy dinner here: good food and friendly service.
In my opinion, Applausi is the best Italian cuisine restaurant in Fairfield County. The menu is diverse and reflects the best of Italian cuisine. The staff is professional and attentive, anticipating all of the diner's needs. Having just returned from Italy, I can assure you that Applausi makes you feel like you are eating in a high quality local trattoria. I go there often and have never been disappointed with anything that I select from the menu. I highly recommend it...
