We booked a table and decided to go over earlier just to see if we could get in. Place was packed so I have to believe many people like it. Since there was no place to sit or stand we told the maître d' we'd walk around. He offered to text us. After 30 minutes we walked over to Brighton... More

As we walked the host was on the phone and too busy to look up and acknowledge us. Once seated our waitress was very preoccupied with another table. Another waiter came by to clear our empty dishes and ask us how our appetizer was. Fortunately the food was wonderful as usual. But it isn't pleasant to feel like we are... More

This is a very nice restaurant to take a date to. Wood paneling, nice round booths, cosy interior. They also have a banquet facility downstairs, which holds ~100 people. Free parking right outside the restaurant is a plus, too. We have been to several highly recommended Italian restaurants in Chicago, which were not nearly as good as this one. Our... More

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
