Came to eat lunch with my partner at Amici Miei. The fish is extremely fresh and tasty. The antipasto of tuna with onion was very nice and cooked well. We shared a second dish of 2 different Risotto's, one made with pistachio, and the other with almonds. I have to say it's one of the best Risotto dishes I have tasted, in particular the one made with almonds!! It was very tasty and delicate at the same time. Compliments to the chef!
All went down well with the prosecco we were served when seated. We will be back! :) Thank you!

You know what ever comes to you plate here will be fresh from the boat, Wether it be the little salads with seafood, or a fish soup of a pasta, everything here was yum. A good ambiance given the small size of the restaurant with excellent wine list are great.

What impressed us most is that coffee was served using a cafatera, just like home.

I was here during my vacation in sicily, and this was the only bad food we managed to have during that week. I visited the place because our guidebook suggested it as a decent eatery, but it turned out the guidebook was out of date and the "good" restaurant had closed in the meantime, leaving its place to "amici miei". We gave it a shot. The only thing worth the visit at "amici miei" was the english translation of the menu outside the restaurant (hilarious, specially if you also speak italian and you know where the translation is coming from). A house "sommelier" (one of the two amici) tried hard to sell us an expensive bottle several times, but we just wanted a simple wine, and asked for a "bianco della casa" (house wine). We got the food and the wine. Frankly the food was below average (not to brag of my Italian cooking skills, but I could do better than that at home). We tried to wash it away with the house wine, but what they brought us was closer to vinegar than wine. We were glad to get the check soon after and move on to some real sicilian food. Maybe we were just unlucky, or I have no clue where the positive reviews come from.

Alessandro is the host of this tiny exquisite restaurant. Six tables with a table for one in the best spot. The food is lovely, fresh, local. There is a warm welcome for new faces. Alessandro and Chef are keen to help you experience the local dishes. Generous with little tastes of this and that. The Chef and Alessandro are charming and fun. Like having dinner at a private party. Don't miss this if you're in Messina. It's worth a detour if you're anywhere in the area.
