Amicci's Ratings and Reviews
I have dined at this restaurant on numer ...
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.

Wonderful! I wanted my kids to experience Little Italy and something different from our local restaurants- this was perfect! Kids loved "make your own pasta" dishes and enough for lunch the next day! Love this place!

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.

I can always count on Amicci's. They have the best sauce and their chicken parm is always delicious.
Caught up with my Sons over dinner. I wish I could try new menu items but the chicken parm is always my favorite. They never disappoint!

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.

We had 8 pm reservations and waited for 15 min. to be seated. Our server didn't seem interested, with us having to pull her back to the table because we weren't done ordering. Food was just ok this time. Still a tasty place for Italian, though.

We had to ask to be moved when we were first seated; there was another table that was so loud we couldn't hear ourselves. Our new waitress was not very pleasant and service was slow. If the food had been good I could have dealt with the other issues, but it was just average - and pricey.

Went for dinner on vacation. Of the 4 of us, two liked their dishes, two did not. The Marsala is sweet (we were told this, but I don't thing we really understood it). It is really very sweet. While I thought it was good, my son did not.

I love Amicci's !!
The Rotunda & House Salad are delicious for appetizers. For entrees we ordered the Pasta Coreleone and the Penne Amicci they came piping hot and fabulous tasting. The portions are large so we shared all this between 4 people and walked away stuffed.

Went to Amicci's while visiting Baltimore and being 100% Italian, I wanted to experience their Little Italy! I was really impressed with the food and Landy, our waitress. She turned us on to Vaccara's pastry shoppe which was an added treat. Thanks and we will be back the next time we are in town

Amicci's is a family restaurant - good food at a great value. If you come to Amicci's for tasty meal in a family atmosphere (not a lot of fanfare here) you will not be disappointed and you will not be leaving a gapping hole in your wallet.

Amicci's had our table ready at our reservation time for 4 people on a slow Saturday afternoon.
The food was good but maybe predictable. That being said everything was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and generous in portion. We had the calimari appetizer--plentiful and NOT greasy.
The entrees were Veal Marsala, the baked Lasagna, and 2 pasta dishes--ALL were tasty,hot when they arrived and delicious. Service was friendly, fast and courteous. I'll be returning here.

We needed to find a restaurant that would have a quiet corner on a Friday night to have a private conversation. Since we started dinner early, we were able to get a small room to ourselves and enjoyed it alone until 7pm. The waiter was helpful with food selection. The food itself was decent (not mind blowing) t. All in, a nice experience and met our expectations.

We found Amicci's years ago and it's our go-to favorite. We crave their Chicken Lorenzo and house salad. Their side pasta is also tasty, such yummy marinara! We always take home a bottle of their house dressing; it's delicious and I can't quite replicate it at home! We enjoy many restaurants, Italian cuisine being our favorite, but NO ONE makes a dish like Amicci's Chicken Lorenzo. It's our favorite spot in Little Italy - casual, friendly, mouth watering food, good service, reasonable prices. Amicci's is a hometown favorite and great for visitors too! Try it, you'll like it, and probably love it!
