Dinner with friends...we all enjoyed
Best spaghetti and clam sauce ever!
We have lived this wonderful family owned restaurant for years. Friendly, welcoming, consistently delicious food , and excellent service ! A winner!
This is a neighborhood gem. It has been in business for decades which is no surprise. Everything about the dining experience is outstanding.
Took my wife here for a Friday date night based on the good reviews. No one at the host stand for a few minutes and then another 10+ mins to figure out who our waiter was, but service was fine once we did. Food was decent and reasonably priced. This seems like more of a "family and group" restaurant than a date spot. Seemed like they do a good business with a lot of happy, regular customers from the Old Greenwich neighborhood.
Food & service was awesome . First time for dinner. Would definitely recommend to friends. Will be back for a special occasion. Thought wine was a little pricey.
The entire experience was wonderful. Great food, great service and great ambiance. We came early second group to sit at 530 and by the time we finished our meal the place was packed.
Fantastic authentic Italian food. Great vibe
Eat Pasta! Eat Pasta! Eat Pasta! Eat Pasta! Eat Pasta!
Definitely one of the best Italian places in Fairfield County! Go for the food which is excellent every time.
I've been to Applausi before. This time my wife's food was just OK, mine was very good -- in other words, mixed. But the noise level was deafening, far worse than "energetic." You had to shout to carry on a conversation with the person next to you. It made the experience horrible. The waiter said, "Come back for lunch. It's quieter." Well, I'm not coming back at all.
Decent enough place - felt welcome. Nothing was a 5 star experience but nothing was bad either - just a mid line Italian joint
Everything from food to service to ambiance to wine was fantastic! Beppe is gracious owner and host! Highly recommend this place to everyone!! Thanks.
The food was good but the noise level was very high.
Food excellent, with interesting and varied menu. A bit pricey for a local restaurant, but definitely worth it.
A wonderful neighborhood restaurant. Everything was excellent. The appetizers were well presented and delicious. The pastas were perfectly done with superior service.
Lovely delicious dinner with friends.
Excellent service ,a large interesting menu choices. Tasty,well prepared food.
Love this little restaurant, food is excellent. Only drawback is it is very noisy. Reminds me of manhattan restaurants.
This is a GREAT local place that is so underrated.
Food is amazing for this little corner of Old Greenwich. Local dinner hangout for sure. WAY too loud, can't really enjoy a dinner for two, can't hear each other speak. Would be so easy for the owner to install sound dampening ceilings and walls.
Parents with crying babies, even at 9pm on a Saturday night... not exactly a romantic interlude. Wonderful food, but bring earplugs!
Staff is always helpful and super friendly. Grilled calamari and grilled octopus...delicious!
Food is always consistently good. Service was fine and it’s just a bit loud. Enjoyed it again!
We took my sister and brother-in-law there for my birthday dinner. The food was great, but the noise was terrible. We found ourselves shouting across the table in order to be heard. There were two tables of six that were very, very loud and the acoustics are such that there is nothing to damper the noise. The interior is all black, which iI find depressing. I liked it much better when the walls were white and there was carpeting on the floor, it was a long time ago!
The grilled calamari was wonderful and the polenta crusted cod was really tasty. My brother-in-law had the Risotto, which was very good, too. We skipped dessert and coffee because it was so loud. Even though my husband had mentioned that it was my birthday in the reservation, no one of the servers mentioned it.
We have not been to this restaurant for over 2 years. Our reservation was for 6:00 pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was empty and within 30 minutes it was jumping. The food was excellent. The service was quiet and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant without any reservations. Kudos to the management and staff.
You absolutely must try the Bronzino baked in Salt. Absolutely delicious!
We enjoyed our dinner at Applausi very much. The food was delicious and the service was top-notch. However, we had a difficult time hearing each other speak as the restaurant was extremely noisy.
As usual - excellent food and attentive service. A true Italian venue that knows its stuff.
Always a great option for dinner! I just wish they had not removed the frisée salad off the menu! Current salad options are very limited.
Excellent food (as always), and nice specials on the menu for Mother’s Day. Request for table by the window was honored, and our family enjoyed the entire meal start to finish in a relaxing atmosphere.
Great food (and choices) with excellent service and ambiance - no better place to eat.
Much too noisy that interferes with everything. Makes dinning unpleasant.
Delicious Italian food, it's hard to decide what to have from the menu because everything is good, and the specials are always terrific.
Everything about this restaurant is great, but the noise level is distracting. Lots of small children and large, young families make it noisy. Maybe a later reservation would change the atmosphere. I love children but not in a restaurant of this caliber. In the evening we enjoy great food in a quieter atmosphere.
The food is amazing and there are so many options! I’m never disappointed there.
Always great, always have the Bronzino!
Noisy, delicious froccacia in bread basket!
Our dishes were well prepared and tasty. Perhaps the ravioli was as good as I've had. We had not been here for a while and are glad we came back.
