Amicci's Ratings and Reviews
Amazing restaurant!! Food was great! Service was even better! And the wine hit the spot. I will recommend this place to everybody i know in and out of state!!! 5 star restaurant.. if you ever ate here all i am going to say is " The Pane' Rotundo" omg the best!!!
We had a Saturday night reservation. We only had to wait about 5 minutes for our table; the restaurant was quite busy with a 40 minute estimated wait time for those without reservations. Out waiter was very cordial, and efficient. The dinners were served surprisingly quickly. Both meals were good Italian cuisine. It is not fine dining, with elaborate presentation, but generous servings prepared without flair. The bar area has many flat screens showing multiple sporting events. The restaurant has several rooms, allowing for more private or public seating. Overall, we had a nice experience at Amicci's.
Been coming for years and usually have a great experience. Service was very slow considering they were only moderately busy. Watched several tables be served ahead of us despite ordering before them. 25 mins to get an appetizer, bread with a piece of cheese on top, really? Will come back but will not be a loyal customer in the future. Time to branch out, plenty of competition in the area for italian food.
Every time we visit Amicci's (I think this is #4), we enjoy our service and our meal. We went back for Valentine's Day this year and chose different options since we always stick to our standards. Well...except our old faithful Pane Rotunda. It's sooo good so we had to order it. My husband ordered the pepito (?) lasagna and I ordered the tri-colored cheese tortellini with sausage. Both delicious and enough for leftovers. The waitress was very personable and helpful and quick considering it was a holiday. We will be back soon. This is one of our favorites!
I hadn't been here in several years, but was happy to see that there haven't been any major changes since then. Ambience is casual, staff were polite and efficient without being overbearing, and the food was prepared exactly how we ordered and tasted excellent!
I always love Amiccis and this visit didn't disappoint. The waitress was really nice and when I asked about the Pasta Verde and found out that it's no longer on the menu she offered to ask the kitchen to make it. The food was delicious, the portions generous, my only complaint was an obnoxiously loud table of 3 in the corner but no one could help that.
Don't pass on the signature scampi appetizer - it's truly awesome! Shrimp & muscle pasta was tasty and had a generous amount of seafood. We had a delicious red Montepulciano, and while there was no room for dessert, we each enjoyed our expresso and cappuccino. Waitress was attentive, helpful and fun, rounding out a great dining experience.
I live in Washington D.C. where it is difficult to find a good old fashioned neighborhood Italian restaurant with genuine Italian food. I found Amicci's by googling best Italian restaurants in Little Italy when I recently had to take a friend to Johns Hopkins. This place had great reviews as several others did but luckily I hit it out of the park. The food was delicious, authentic Italian, our server Amanda was wonderful as was everyone else there. The ambience was perfect for an authentic Italian place, warm, woody and comfortable. Two reasons I initially picked it? It has been there 25 years and the prices were reasonable. Will go back next time I am in Baltimore!
Amicci's is very predictable and cost effective. Quality is constantly good. There is a good variety of what Americans regard as Italian food. Portions are ample and efficiently served. We had a party of 6 for a birthday dinner, and everyone enjoyed their meal.
New Year's Eve dinner for 11 did not disappoint!! Generous portions, wonderful flavor and very reasonable prices! Eggplant parmigiana, penne fra diavlo, gnocchi bake, just to name a few...all outstanding! Only waited a few moments to be seated. Cool location in the Little Italy section of town. Restaurant set up in what appeared to be an old home with different dining areas in separate rooms. Loved it. We will be back!
Our only complaint was that we were seated in a back room with a large group having a party. The were so loud that conversation at our table was impossible. I was tempted to say something to the group, but I think perhaps someone from the restaurant should have asked them to consider the other patrons around them.
We had a table of six after a recent football game. To be honest, we wanted to dine elsewhere but the higher rated restaurants were booked. This is "good, cheap, Italian" food. Nothing fancy and wine list is limited to a few "everyday" choices. Portions are large so two people can easily split one entree. A large party may want to consider ordering a few dishes and dining family style. Restaurant is okay for what it is.
I have dined at this restaurant on numerous occasions due to its popularity and location. The food ranges from barely okay to very good, so choose wisely. The prices are reasonable overall, including the specials which tend to be the better choice taste-wise. The service needs much improvement. The servers are usually courteous and professional. Check-in can be quite a nightmare, however. This is a business that has a lot of tourists come through and you get the feeling that the greeter and staff are not concerned with how they treat you because they'll never see you again. If you are more than 15 minutes late your reservation will be dropped, the greeter will be very unpleasant, and reseating will take an extensive amount of time. If food is poorly prepared, the manager will haggle with you over it rather than apologize, remove the item from your bill and move on. Overall, I can only rate this restaurant as "fair."
Typically good food, on what appeared to be a somewhat slow Saturday night. My lasagne was perfect but, one of the other diners in my parties chicken parm, was buried in sauce. The Caesar salad was perfectly dressed. The one issue that I find amazing would how an Italian restaurant could be out of Chianti, in bulk? Seriously, no bottles or carafes available!
Always enjoyable. Food was great, as was service. Will surely be back.
However, on personal reflection and discussion with others in my party, here's a couple of thoughts for the owners to ponder: 1st floor front dining room is a little crowded and difficult to move between tables; Italian bread was tasty, but would have preferred it be served hot; and, anyone with more than a slight disability (one of my party walks with the assistance of a cane) would have difficulty entering the restaurant.
Very pleasant dinner! We were staying at the Marriott Fairfield Inn, just a few blocks from the heart of Baltimore's Little Italy and wanted to try a spot in this neighborhood for a casual dinner. After reading many online reviews, we picked this spot. It was an overall good experience. This is not fine dining, or trendy dishes, just some good traditional Italian dishes, with a few interesting variations thrown in. The building and multiple small dining rooms have character and some old neighborhood charm. There was a friendly greeting at the door and good, attentive service throughout our meal. It helped that it was not very crowded when we arrived. As our small dining room near the front of the building filled up, the noise level got high. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the large portion size for many items. Yes, it's great that a side salad with the entree was only $3 and it was a large plate of lettuce with a good house dressing. However, I would have gladly paid more to get a few more advertised ingredients on my pile of lettuce. Added to the lettuce and slivers of red onion was one half of a grape tomato, one half of a slice of cucumber and 2 olives. Really? The half of a grape tomato was actually insulting. The accompanying Italian bread was fresh and tasty, when requested. My Chicken Lorenzo dish was excellent - freshly prepared, tender chicken cutlet and a very flavorful wine sauce. "Grandma's" lasagna was good and fresh, but a tad skimpy on the sauce and size of the portion. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed that there was no linguine with clams on the menu - a classic and personal favorite. Also, no "fish of the day" or other fish dishes to speak of. Overall, good food at a reasonable price in a friendly and casual, albeit noisy atmosphere. We would return when in the mood for such an experience.
We needed a reservation for a bigger group. We wanted to avoid the
"chain" restaurants, so chose to come to the Italian restaurant area of Baltimore.
The appetizers and salads were really very good, and we took our
waiter's recommendations. Our service was very good for a large group.
However, we were in a room with absolutely no ambience, probably the only area
they could fit us in. The restaurants reviews on-line in the Italian section pretty
much all looked to have similar menus and prices, and we had no recommendations, and just chose this one for availability.
The main entrees, however, were pretty ordinary. Nothing very
special about the sauces or pastas. Very heavy on the portions, so good if you
have a big appetite on a limited budget.
Very good food in a lively, cozy, casual setting. Service was friendly and low-key.
The baked orcchiette and eggplant parmigiana were both quite tasty, though the spaghetti side came with a sauce that was a bit bland and too sweet. The tiramisu was delicious, but the bread pudding was disappointing with a tough hard layer at the bottom.
We had to wait several minutes to be seated even though we had reservations. The table needed to be wiped.
This restaurant was not good. The dishes were very plain/bland and I felt that I could make a better meal at home. The waitress was very slow at getting our food/service to us. We had to wait a while before even getting menus/waters to our table. Every time we needed something, more water, Parmesan cheese, bread, etc. we had to ask every time. Never did the waitress ask us if we needed something additional. I would never go back to this restaurant to eat.
The food is always good. I tied a new entrée and was not disappointed. The Carleone had just the right punch. My son loved the Chicken Marsala And he is never disappointed.
I was a little disappointed in the location of our seat, in the back. It would not have been bad except the table was not set until our appetizer arrived ( which) took a while.
Of course I will be back, it is a favorite!
Whenever we travel to Baltimore for a Navy and Ravens football game we dine at Amicci's.
Extremely disappointed this time and we will not return. We will try another place in Little Italy.
It was very warm and uncomfortable in the dining rooms. They had no air conditioning on and ceiling fans running on slow speed. When my husband mentioned something to our waitress she all of sudden had an attitude.
