This resturant has authentic italian food. The enviornment is friendly. It has a decent wine selection and really nice dessert. The staff is friendly and courteous.
One of my favorites. Always great food. Nice wine list and tasty desserts. Perfecto
Good fresh food. We were allowed to choose our own table as we don't like sitting side by side.
This was our first visit to this restaurant, but we were not especially welcomed; this may be due to understaffing. It seems to be frequented mostly by locals.
Lots of traditional Italian dishes with an innovative flair. The seafood items are particularly tasty and perfectly prepared. Beppe is a welcoming and excellent host.
good neighborhood dining convenient
reasonabe prices comfortable
We chose this restaurant as it was a central location for each of the dinner guests. I understand that restaurants rely on its regulars but our table was located right by the front door on a very cold night. Every diner who came and went kept the door open so they could hang up or retrieve their coats. So we were cold most of the night, our food did not keep warm as we were eating and not once did a waiter or staff person ask how we were faring with the cold. This was a very disappointing meal and I will not be recommending this restaurant. If you are a regular you will be treated nicely. If not, you will be given the "left-overs".
The pasta was fresh and wonderful. Service was attentive. I have been many times over many years and have never been disappointed. Many thanks.
We dine here often - it is truly a neighborhood gem. Consistently good, fresh food. Salads and appetizers are excellent (my favoite is the beet and frissee salad). Fish dishes are very good, especially specials that change weekly. (Dover sole sometimes on the is the best.)
Very nice place. Staff could not have been more accommodating.
Food was great, service was great. I will definitely come back again and recommend this place.
The menu at Applausi was very good & the food was also very good.
That said, the service was impossible.
Perhaps the poor service was attributable to the busyness of Valentines Day, but
the service was seriously sub par and affected our enjoyment of the evening.
Ordering & food delivery was insufferably slow.
We will try it again when its not a holiday.
Veal shank was good but a very small portion which was disappointing. The pork chop with cherry peppers was cooked to perfection. The grilled calamari is one of the best I've had!
Went there on a Wednesday night, my birthday and with the help of the owner (his choices) we had the baked mussels, the Tuna carpacio and the Burratta. All were excellent, fresh tasty and came quickly. then a pasta course, a sampling of the cavatelli tossed with italian sweet sausage, awesome! The mains were veal scaloppine, sea bass, trout and the rib eye. All were excellent. The service was outstanding. Sometimes you get the best meals when it's not the weekend. We will definitely go again and try it on a saturday. Very cozy and very pleasant.
Pork Chop with cherry peppers was cooked perfectly. Grilled calamari was excellent. Enjoyed the meal and would definitely go back.
Food was excellent the service was slow though. Only 2 waiters for the whole place and they had to work the bar as well
We had a wonderful meal at Applausi. The appetizer of grilled shrimp with a white bean salad to the authentic spaghetti and meatballs; and the special of braised brisket in a chianti reduction served with a fennel and potato mash; everything was excellent. The service was wonderful and the manager and staff are always so welcoming. We look forward to our next visit!
We love Applausi. The food is delicious. I can never decide which delicious enter to order. The appetizers are creative and just fabulous. We love the staff. Just the right amount of friendliness. It is our go to spot in Greenwich!
Great neighborhood joint. Good food and sweet staff.
Our favorite Old Greenwich restaurant for several years. Consistently pleases.
Food was phenomenal, the tables were a bit close so you could really hear those next to you, but the restaurant was cozy and most of the staff was friendly. A couple of the staffers didn't pay attention to us at first, taking awhile to get us water for example, but after we got our appetizer everything was great. An enjoyable New Year's Eve experience.
Service was great, so is the food. Been there many times, never disappointed.
Excellent food and ambience but the welcome and attitude of
the help could do with a big dose of improvement
The word snooty comes to mind
Plan to go there again to see if there is a change in welcome
Consistently good food and good service. A neighborhood gem
Dinner was great, the quality and consistency of food
is exceptional. A true gem.
I've been to this restaurant several times....the food is outstanding and the staff is friendly and knowledgable....service is great.
Great meal. Just what we were hoping for. A little loud which made conversation sometimes challenging -- but quality of the food, service, setting compensated. Thanks
We eat out 7 nights/week. Applausi was excellent in every respect.
Applausi disappoints in overall service. since they charge top prices, they should deliver top service as well as good creative food.
the wait staff continues to treat the patrons as though they are somehow intruding rather than welcoming them.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant. The food is fantastic. You will always feel welcome. Be sure to try the homemade pasta
Never had a bad meal here. Very consistent with good Value.
As always, consistently good, we'll prepared fare. A go-to for us. All of the starters abd pastas are excellent - beets and frisee my salad choice this time - along with sea bass entree, which is a favorite.
Great food, nice menu selections, great service, nice round table that fit 7 people. Only negatives is that the bar area is small and the restaurant is loud.
The menu always has interesting specials. The food is great and the service just right.
I ordered a pasta dish which I rarely do but was intrigued by the aromas coming from the table next to us. It was exquisite. The pasta was home made, perfectly cooked, and just the right blend of flavors and seasonings. Prices were fair by Greenwich standards, including wine by the glass. Ambiance was nice and wait staff attentive. I'll definitely return.
Although the wine prices are a bit steep (more than 100% markup), the food was excellent. Home made ravioli was superb, the mozzarella and prosciutto was excellent as well.
Service was excellent ... And the food was delicious !!
Always loved this restaurant !!!!!
We have been going to Applausi for over 10 years. Family owned, the staff is consistently welcoming, efficient, and happy to see us. Food is always excellent with a rotating menu.
We love it!
excellent food, good service.
esthetics only fair, noise level too high.
Applausi is in our neighborhood but we would drive miles for it! My husband always gets the same pasta and shrimp dish - I usually opt for fish and the "hand cut sole" special did not disappoint!
Requested a quiet table for dinner - request honored. Nice variety in menu; our selections were well prepared and carefully presented. Service was attentive but not overbearing. In general a most pleasant evening.
