We've always found Applausi reliably good. Tonight I had the artic char baked in parchment, it may have been the best entree I've ever had, anywhere! Moist, delicious with outstanding seemingly contradictory favors or orange, capers & red onions. Service is also always great!

We went to a small wedding reception here and it was lovely. Great food and service, friendly and helpful staff but not overbearing. Would recommend if you like Northern Italian food.

Great spot in the heart of Old Greenwich. Its not cheap but the food quality is excellent. We have been there many times in our 27 years living in OG. The staff is friendly and the classic northern Italian dishes from the trout to the osso bucco keep us coming back.

I have had dinner at Osteria Applausi once or twice per year since 2012. In my first review of the restaurant I rated it as Excellent both for food and service. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. During my last visit our appetizers were average at best. My insalata con polipo (octopus) had virtually no flavor. My wife was... More

We booked and arrived at 8. The restaurant was packed and we were asked to stand by a wall near the kitchen until our table was ready which took 30 minutes. Basically the restaurant had allowed too many bookings and so everything was chaotic. Server couldn't have been more disinterested. Shame, I have a feeling it could be good here... More

I had hoped to write a very positive review but the best I can muster is a mixed review. After reading other reviews, I can understand the very positive as well as the negative ones. While the wait staff tried to be efficient, it did not come off as a warm and welcoming environment. We had to wave down the... More
