The greeter/manager leaves much to be desired. Second visit in past month.
First visit, somewhat brusque and not welcoming. No big deal.
Second visit, not even a “sorry” that our table for 4 was not ready at the time we reserved. Told us to stay by the bar. 15-20 minutes wait for the table, not gracious enough to comp the two drinks ordered at the bar. Despite our purchase of a bottle of wine at the table.
Excellent food. The front-of-the-room guy should work on his game.
Had the lunch special which is probably the greatest value of all time! The food at Applausi is consistently amazing. Wine list is also extremely comprehensive and well rounded. Service is attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. My friend had the caesar salad and trout and loved it. 3-4th time here, i’ve never had the same thing and i’ve never been disappointed. love this restaurant!!
Fabulous, authentic Italian food. Great wine pairings. Friendly owner and staff. One of the better places to go for weekend dinner. Very popular with locals so go early because it can get busy
The food is always fresh and first rate! Great Italian food and very good value. You just can't go wrong at Applausi.
Excellent food!! Service a little slow. But you also never feel rushed.
Fabulous food, good service. Very attentive to your needs. Will prepare special dishes not on the menu. Third time dining there, will continue to go back and recommend.
A favorite for years. Great fish, perfectly sized portions (not huge...), lovely salads, delicious desserts. Always excellent service. Happy to have Applause in the neighborhood!
Loved this restaurant and loved, loved, loved the food! There were 7 of us celebrating my mother's 90th birthday (who does not look or act like she's 90) on a Friday night and when we arrived at 6:30, only a few tables were full. By 8:00 or so, the place was packed and the noise level was deafening. Since we were seated at a round table, the noise made it difficult to communicate with my family members across the table. It is not a big restaurant so all the tables are contained in one room and are very near to each other. I would just keep this in mind in the future but if I am ever back in the area, I would definitely go back to Applausi for another delicious meal!
Always an excellent experience. Great service, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Food is consistently great. The polenta crusted cod is a must have.
We always enjoy the food at Applausi, especially the homemade pasta. It's a good go-to place for dinner after the Greenwich Choral Society or Greenwich Symphony concerts.
Applausi shines brightly among all the Italian restaurants in the greater area! IMHO they do the best Bronzino in a salt crust I’ve eaten outside of Europe.
We keep going back because it is always enjoyable
We absolutely love Applausi. The food is delicious. Excellent Italian dining. The ambience is nice, low lighting and easy to have a conversation. We adore the maitre d, always friendly and helpful. We LOVE it and take friends there often.
Hectic but expected on valentine
The food was excellent. The service was mediocre. The bill was higher than we expected. Unfortunately it felt excessively noisy tonight
We were pretty impressed! Flavorful perfectly prepared food with very good service. The salt crusted Branzino was one of the best I’ve had in the US. We will definitely returnable,
Great. A go to place.
Excellent as always
I have been here a number of times and the food and service are consistently excellent.
I LOVE applausi and am very lucky to have it as a neighborhood restaurant. Fish is superb! Best of all it’s a 15 minutes walk for me!
Fabulous- I find it very elegant and relaxing at the same time
Neighborhood gem with easy street parking and friendly service.
Quaint, great aromas, warm bread, delicious.
Food great made from scratch service a bit off
While we always enjoy the food at Applausi, the restaurant was understaffed for Sunday dinner, resulting in long waits for service.
Very good Italian food with a nice vibe. A good great choice to go with friends who are looking for good food at a reasonable price. It has an upscale neighborhood feel and it’s very close to the Hyatt Regency.
My first time and, although it was for business, I will definitely return with friends. Excellent!
Applausi never disappoints the cuisine is always authentic to the southern Italian food culture. It is rare to find "truly" handmade pasta options.
We enjoyed a lovely meal
The staff was excellent, providing just the right amount of attention.
Will definitely return.
Love it. Great atmosphere and wonderful for friends get-together.
Applausi is a regular stop for my family, but my most recent visit was to honour a good friend on the 50th anniversary of his ordination as a priest. Applausi did NOT disappoint.
We go often and it is always good! Always have a problem picking a starter because they are all well prepared - shrimp and white bean puree is a favorite.
Just as enjoyable as always!!
Our food was good but the extremely poor service ruined the evening. I had to go to the bar twice to try and get menus and then our server. Almost an hour passed before we were even able to order.
Incredible gem.... everything was delicious! So popular, we had to wait for the final check because it is basically a small restaurant and they were beyond filled to capacity. But, we'd go again tomorrow if we didn't live so far away (Palm Beach Gardens, Florida). This place rivals anywhere in the world.
Good local Italian spot with a nice varied menu. Enjoyed the white clam sauce.
Have been there many times, never a disappointment. Food is always good. It's
a great family restaurant.
Applausi is a wonderful neighborhood gem where you always feel welcome The food is fantastic, the best Italian food in Greenwich. The homemade pasta is a favorite. The staff is attentive but never intrusive. We love this restaurant.
