We had our typical Christmas Eve dinner at Ciao Amici's for the 5th year in a row. Food and service was great. Be sure to try the deserts.

Best seafood pasta. My boys always get pizza and spaghetti. My oldest says the spaghetti is the best ever.

We really enjoy coming here for special occasions. The atmosphere is very nice and the staff have always been incredibly polite and attentive to their customers. The food is amazing and has always tastes very fresh. We will continue to return to this restaurant and enjoy more delicious food.

We recently went to eat here during the holiday season. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. This was my first visit to this restaurant and it may now be my favorite restaurant in Brighton. The group I was with ordered a variety of foods (veal, seafood and chicken) and all... More

Ordered salmon with polenta as I had not had salmon in a long time. The salmon was colorless and much gray on the bottom. The polenta was only ok. Had not been there in s few years. Hard to believe any worthwhile chef would let the salmon leave the kitchen in that state. My husband ordered pasta with shrimp and... More

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...
