The food here reminds me of a higher class brunch-- but the price and atmosphere as well as the cocktails were priced reasonably and the portions were spot-on. Enough to leave you satisfied and yet wanting more of what else they had to offer. The staff was well organized and prompt. Very nice place to take a family or a date!

We had reservations for 8; but, probably did not need them, other than we had requested a table at the back overlooking the Boardman River and the Bay. Seated exactly at 8. Very attentive waiter, knowing the menu in detail, without having to refer to notes. Offered his honest opinions, based upon our comments. Servings are quite large, so don't over-order. They were out of the lamb shanks, by popular request; so, we enjoyed encrusted whitefish. An enjoyable meal.

Stopped in for a late dinner. The inside is charming and warm, but we chose to sit on the outside patio that faces Front Street, which is the main drag in town. Quiet and pleasant. I ordered the lamb shank, while my friend just had the caprese salad. The salad was a decent rendition of the classic with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomatoes. The lamb shank was perfect, fall-off-the bone tender with a heady red wine sauce and mashed potatoes and broccolini. If the server had been more friendly, we probably would have ordered up with wine and dessert but she really wasn't that interested.

We visit TC every year and have to stop for lunch at Amical every time. They have the best pasta in town. They are a quaint restaurant, but they were very accommodating for our large party of 12 when we called ahead. Nice sized menu with delicious choices even for the vegetarians in the group.
