When my husband had a conference to attend in Baltimore we asked about a good Italian reataurant, since we were so close to Little Italy. The hotel sent us to Amicci's. What a treat! Funky atmosphere that reminded me of old (1940's) style decor; fast, friendly service in a causal atmosphere; fantastic food. It all tasted like something you would eat in an Italian home. We enjoyed it so much we went again with another couple who felt the same as we had. I just wish we had an Amicci's in our home in the Pacific Northwest. If we ever get back to Baltimore Amicci's will be our first restaurant choice!

Reviews tout this restaurant as one of the ""best bargins"" in Little Italy, Baltimore. I now understand the reason for this, and the lack of praise of their fare. On a recent evening, prior to a show, I was part of a four-person party who landed here for dinner. The atmosphere in their bar is quite nice, but it does not feel Italian. It felt more like an attempt to be trendy (and, of course, to provide patrons an opportunity to splurge on highly proiftable drinks). We were escorted upstairs to a dingy dining room, with vynal tablecloths, poor lighting, and no music. Wearing old jeans, our waitress (who will remain nameless) neglected to welcome us, introduce herself to our party, offer the specials, or point out the wine list. As an appetizer, we ordered the ""Pane's Rotundo"", which is highlighted in red on their menu. The alfredo sauce was creamy, but the garlic was completely overdone -- a red flag that fresh herbs and spices were lacking. I decided to give their alfredo sauce a second chance and ordered the Tortolini. I was again, very disappointed with the lack of flavor. My wife's chicken parmigian was also very ordinary and, with bland sauce. Others in our party confirmed that their entrees were okay, at best. Now comes the most ALARMING part of the evening: they do not offer espresso! What Italian restaurant worth consideration doesn't offer espresso? I don't mean to be trite, but this was the final straw for me. After we paid our $100+ check (not exactly a bargin), I vowed to try to help others avoid this overpriced, underperforming faux-Italian eatery (really, a glorified pasta restaurant). With so many other good options within a stone's throw, I can't understand why Amicci's remains viable. I HATE to say this, but the ""Olive Garden"" beats the sauce out of this place, which, if done literally, would be doing a favor for anyone that can tell the difference between tomato soup and marinara sauce.

Amicci's was a great disappointment. If you want to pay inflated prices to eat tastless food off of uneven tables with vinyl tableclothes using tin cutlery in a dingy back room, this is the place for you. Maybe our expectations were raised too high by reader reviews. But after our highly unsatisfying experience, I wonder if the positive ""reader"" reviews weren't submitted by the restaurant. The front room is attractive, but the rest of the dining rooms are dark, unpleasant, and have greasy floors. But the worst part of the experience was the food. We ordered two appetizers and three pasta entrees (this is not an ""Italian"" restaurant; the limited menu makes this no more than a pasta joint) and they all tasted the same -- that's to say, they had no taste. The calamari were a congealed mass of tasteless fried dough; the red sauce with which it was served had no bite at all. The mussels were passable but rather small and tough and the garlic broth very thin. Our three pasta dishes -- a red sauce wit sausage, an alfredo sauce, and a garlic pesto -- truly tasted alike. Everyone in our party reached for the salt shaker after the first bite -- a first for me in any restaurant!
Let's face it, Baltimore's Little Italy is a pale imitation of a real ethic enclave. There's no restaurant there that can rival any authentic Italian restaurant in Washington or New York. Whatever language they speak there, the words ""al dente"" are clearly a foreign tounge. If you must eat there, though, pay one or two dollars more per item and eat at Sabbatino's -- at least you get a little atmosphere with your overcooked noodles. (12/04/07)

Amicci's is our Little Italy standard. Nothing else compares. The prices are very reasonable, the portions are HUGE and the food is always top quality. I've come with large groups before, small groups and just the two of us - always great service. The wait isn't as bad since they expanded a few years ago, but on a weekend night in Little Italy, what do you expect. When they took my favorite dish off the menu, I just asked, and they made it for me anyway. Their fried calamari is the best in town, and I'm picky about these things. I do wish you could make reservations for smaller groups, but they're always great about the big groups, and we've never had a problem whether it's 8 or 16!
