Ordered Lamb Shank and it was excellent served over a bed of Risotto. Paid 3 buck extra for a Caesar Salad and it was just so-so. Had lots of shaved Parmesan on top, but skimpy of dressing. Wife had the Scallops that was disappointing, with only 4 scallops and for $28.00, it was way over priced. Some of the other... More

For a plate of fish that cost almost #30, I would have expected it to be to perfection. The skin was left on, yuck, and under cooked and fatty. The salad was in huge pieces and sparse with two cherry tomatoes and 4 slivers of juliened carrot. Wow. The food was brought out one plate at a time and the... More

Ciao Amici's remains our top pick in Livingston County. Warm and classy interior, very friendly service and always superb food add up to a top notch experience. You can split a meal or use coupons that are available in local publications. But prices are not exorbitant. Gluten free pasta is available. Outdoor seating in summer across from Mill Pond is...

Unquestionably this is a beautiful place with lots of ambiance. My wife had the eggplant Parmagiana which was okay but the accompanying pasta had an unappetizing red sauce which was disappointing. Her meal started with a house salad and a basket of freshly baked rolls that were surprisingly sweet. I had a glass of nice Chianti which was generous in... More

I told everyone I know that this is a wonderful place. I was talking to my dental hygentist & told her we went there. Her husband is a police officer & know the owner. She said the owner is a very nice man. I agreed! We will definitely be going back. I will have the filet.

We have been here before and enjoyed the food and wait staff. However, this time our waitress was pushy, grouchy, hurried us through the meal and was argumentative. Not a relaxed meal with friends we hadn't seen in awhile -left us all unsettled.

Ate there on Sept. 15, 2016. Wife had marinara pasta, dry, little sauce, no flavor. I had chicken alfredo, which was also dry, as well as the chicken. Totally disappointed. Would not recommend. Also, check your bill later, as I always do. Got home and found out that I was charged $3.00 higher than what I signed for. Don't live... More

This is our go to location for Italian in Brighton. Homemade Pasta, tasty wine selections and the complimentary bread is yummy.
