Amici Trattoria celebrates the fine things in life

Among historic homes, small businesses and American flags lining Main Street in the beautifully manicured town of Shrewsbury, is Amici Trattoria, welcoming guests with its decorative facade with white lights and gold-colored lettering.

Fresh Pasta at Amici Trattoria

Shrewsbury has a pasta restaurant. Chef Stephen Bissonnette (no, not that Chef Bissonnette) shows clear initiative in his commitment to handmade noodles and specialty risottos at Amici Trattoria. If you've been to "sister restaurant" Willy's Steakhouse, you'll expect a certain level of sophistication from Amici. The atmosphere at Amici is far more casual, but the cuisine is just as laborious and traditional with firm attention to quality ingredients.
