First off, the food is great. I had spaghetti with musrooms, pancetta, garlic, onion and pancetta. The garlic was pungent but not overpowering, and the mushrooms were perfectly sauteed. It was the kind of dish I might order over and over again. This space sparkled with cleanliness, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the food was terrific.

Great pasta and other Italian favorites. Desserts are "to die for". Soups and coffee are excellent. If you'd like wine with dinner, they give free (unlimited) refills!

We are frequent visitors as it is walking distance. We had delivery a few weeks ago and it was cold, not warm, BUT COLD. We went tonight for dinner and in addition to the fact that it took quite a long time for our dinners to come out, they were just ... meh. The carrots on the pot roast dinner were blackened - and not in a good way. The manager delivered the food and didn't comment on that at all (ironically, the "counter staff" that refilled our wine apologized). The pasta dish was just okay, somehow they got the pasta right, but the tomatoes in the dish were severely under-cooked. We noticed the kitchen staff did not get along - there were noticeable disagreements going on in the kitchen. This is our neighborhood place, I hope they improve the kitchen staff and managers (or bring back some of the old ones) soon. It was one of our favorite places to walk for dinner. It's almost spring, please do so soon.

D'Amico is one of our "go-to" spots for take-out along Saint Paul's Grand Avenue. Call ahead, and your order is always ready when you arrive. The mushroom linguine and spicy italian penne are always tasty. The best place for Italian comfort food on a chilly night.

We went for the $29 couples meal on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy, and quite full. Despite the busyness, we received excellent service, not just at the counter, but throughout our meal. The $29 goes very far with 2 dinners, 2 salads, and 2 glasses of wine. The food was delicious, the spaghetti and meatballs were highly recommended. While I normally would not order them, it was a great recommendation. The noodles were perfectly done, and the meatballs had just enough spice for the heat to be noticeable and interesting, but not overpowering. The chicken saltimbucca was great, delicious sauce and the chicken again was well prepared. For the value when it comes to service and food quality, it would be hard to beat this place.
