Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food was divine with a lot of flavour. We had a starter, main and desert to share. For starters we had the mussels and raw slice beef, both of these dishes were very nice. For main the Funghi Steak was cooked to perfection medium...rare accompanied by crunchy onion rings. The other dish of pork belly had soft flavorful meat with crackling on the top, both had incredibly flovours. For dessert we shared a sweet lemon cheese cake. The distinguished staff gave us a welcoming service. This restaurant comes with high recommendations and we will be returning.More

As a former resident of the south coast town of Brighton I'm used to great value Italian restaurants like Pinocchio's and Donatello's, so Amici's came as quite shock with their prices. We enjoyed the food and only one of our party was concerned about the...speed of service - it was a very busy Saturday. But when you come out of a restaurant feeling the need to fill up at McDonald's after having spent more than £100 for two of you it doesn't feel like you have had good value for money. As my partner said he got through his 6 pieces of ravioli he had for his main course (£17) in under 5 minutes! As nice as the food is, at these prices we won't be rushing back.More

Me second trip to Amici and I have been desperate to get back to make sure the food really is as fabulous as I remembered. And guess what, it absolutely is!! Genuinely authentic Italian food cooked with care by a really passionate team. Went with...my partner, Mum and son. We shared starters so we’re brought extra side plates and shared desserts so we’re brought extra spoons - all made so easy (and the portions are so generous that sharing makes sense). My main was from the Specials board - pasta with sausage, pancetta and broccoli rabe. Really savoury and delicious. This is going to be on the new permanent menu we were told and it should be. We also had a risotto, melanzane, and pasta with meatballs. Familiar dishes but nothing like the bland food of high street chains. We were at a corner table but were not forgotten - well looked after by attentive staff. I really love this place and highly recommend it.More
