“Wild boar was excellent”
Reviewed 2 April 2014 via mobile

2 had the wild boar pasta and both agreed it was delicious. 1 had the ink spaghetti with smoked trout and if you like smoked fish you will really enjoy this dish.
We also had the beet tower that wasn't anything special. We had calamity that would have been excellent except they were a little too greasy.
Desert was a shared piece of cheesecake that was good.
We all agreed we would come back though it was a bit pricey.

“Gourmet Italian Food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is not your basic pizza and pasta with red sauce. This fine Italian cuisine artfully prepared. Great for foodies.

“Always enjoyable”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

My husband and I enjoy coming to Amici's, and this time we couldn't make up our minds on what we wanted. We ended up choosing a 5 course meal paired with wine and it was by far the best thing we could have done. We tasted things that we would not have normally ordered and enjoyed the element of surprise. Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

“Birthday celebration!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

We decided to make a reservation for a early dinner on Saturday. The online option was very helpful and easy to use. At our arrival Carlo had a table ready in the patio area which was a surprise since we did not specify when we made the reservation. The dinner was promptly served and carefully spaced between courses. The food was delicious and well paired with a delightful red wine. We finished with tiramisu, a classic signature dessert in Italian restaurants. All in all our visit was excellent and we recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience a little bit of Italy in the heart of the city. Thank you very much.
