My husband and I dined here while back in Michigan to visit family and we enjoyed it. We dined in on the Tuesday after Memorial Day and I'm glad we made a reservation! It was busy! Calamari was lightly breaded and not greasy, glasses of...More

The food here is very good. The location is right in the middle of Main Street and across the street from the Mill Pond. During nice weather, you can eat outside then take a stroll on the bridges over the ponds. If there are children...More

This place truly amazes me with its service and delicious entree's. We went as a group for lunch. The service from Stefanie and Robin was exceptional. It is hard to please a group of 20 people but they exceeded our expectations. I asked the waitress...More

Warm and inviting atmosphere. Owner always greets his guests and assures excellent service. Italian American menu, best Calamari in our area. Fair pricing, great wines. Will return regularly.

Ciao Amici is our default neighborhood Italian restaurant. Everybody should have one. Food is creative, tasty and never disappointing. Environment is always upbeat, happy. Wine list is great though I wish they'd offer more Italian reds "by the glass" instead of bottles.

Was pleased with the ambiance, quality of the Italian and the staff. Whenever I want comfort good I think Italian and the last few visits have not disappointed. I was pleased to see that they had fish for my husband too.

I really enjoyed the mussels, spicy and flavorful. A little pricey, a decent value for a night out. I like the variety of wines, service is friendly, try it you will like it.

We had a reservation at 6pm on a Saturday and were glad we did. Crowded, but not noisy. Very extensive wine selections. The seafood chowder had large pieces of seafood, not loaded with potatoes that you find at other places. The chicken gorgonzola had a...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Question for TripAdvisor not restaurant. TripAdvisor has old menu that was changed long ago. How should restaurant update with you. Am I looking at out of date menus throughout TripAdvisor? Should TA shareholders be concerned that TripAdvisor apparently has no operating procedure for trying to maintain up to date information?

Response from Marcsmom | Reviewed this property |
Agree with both the above. Most sites are only as good as the info it receives. Yelp, Waze, google maps - all have issues because everything changes. According to my 2014 car's navigation system, I've been flying over an... More
