“A great little find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

This was recommended by our B & B hosts while staying in Whangarie, the prices were very reasonable and the food delicious. So much so we went back on our second night to sample some more of their menu.
The service was excellent they seemed genuinely pleased to be of service, friendly and efficient. And made a point of recognising we were back the next night.
Lovely Italian fare.

“Great desserts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

This was a lovely night out with great food and great service. It was a particularly busy night but the staff coped well. The desserts are to die for and it was really nice to have such an amazing range of 'not-too-flash' desserts but something for everyone! Would highly recommend.

“Consistently great food and service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

We love Amici, the staff are pleasant and obliging and the food is consistently good. Something for everyone, pizza, pasta and more formal main course dishes. The guitarist plays beautifully at a volume that does not drown out conversation, adds to the ambience.
Our one complaint is that the guitar player smokes in the vicinity of the diners, very unpleasant. Amici is one of the few restaurants in town with true alfresco dining, lovely on a summers evening.

Amici is always enjoyable. The food is great and the service is always friendly and efficient. I love the ambiance. I feel like I'm in a cafe in Italy. I would definitely recommend it!

“Beautiful restaurant and lovely pizzas.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

We went here after 5th Nov fireworks display at about 9pm. Nowhere else was serving so we decided we would have pizza. So really we stumbled on it cos our options were limited but based on our experience I would like to go there again and enjoy a whole evening. The way they've used the space is so stunning.... It genuinely looks and feels like you're in Italy. The waitress was friendly, chatty and efficient. The pizza was yummy.
