Real Italian flavour, lots of options, good atmosphere.

We stopped by for dinner the other night and, being new to the area, decided to try Amici. It was 2 for 1 pizza Monday but we opted for Veal Tortellini and Chicken Parmesean. The flavours were very close if not the same as we get in Italy though the portions are westernized (meaning large, you... read more

Amici's is a very nice local Italian restaurant and lounge. We have always been treated very well & always happy with the food. We went last night and had a very good time. There were three of us and we ordered a large pizza. I should have noticed that the large was only 12 inches but I didn't. It was... More

So I came here and read the reviews and was quite surprised to see al the negative reviews. We met friends that come here all the time and have been quite happy with the food and service for years. This placed is in a strip mall off Country Hills Boulevard. The inside has many table is a brick laden atmosphere.... More

Our party of 8 visited on a quiet Sunday night. The service was attentive, friendly and quite professional. The food was very good. We've dined here off-and-on over many years and have generally always had a great experience. The owner, Tony, is very personable and knows how to run a good business. He is also very skilled at selecting quality... More

We visited Amici for dinner and had gnocchi and penne. The bread was good but the gnocchi was mushy and both dishes were over salted. We waited almost an hour for our pasta. The waitress told us that they had given one of our dishes to another table so it had to be remade and that an hour wait was... More

In Calgary on business. Decided to try this restaurant. Not sure if people who live in the area know what good Italian food is based on some of the reviews. The service was good. The food was bland and presentation terrible. The veggies were hard and cold. Veal like leather. The pasta was swimming in oil. Only thing good was... More

My wife and I decided to try this Italian restaurant for lunch on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. We started with bruschetta and filled up on Cannelloni. Both were very good with plenty of flavour. Our friends were right. We will be back for lunch another day.

A long way for me to drive for dinner, but a friend wanted to try it and we were not disappointed! It is spacious inside, with room to accommodate anything from a table for 2, to large groups. The service was excellent, water refilled without interruption, meal served hot and in perfect timing. The fresh baked bread to start was... More

This is a strip mall restaurant, in that horrible sense. Brick arches as the doorway to worn painted concrete floors, plastic table cloths in a large, cafeteria style seating. Tonight there was that odour of daycare. Friendly service by people that knew the menu. Even though it was packed, like a cafeteria, we did not feel rushed. Even though the... More

Was there at the recommendation of family. Ordered a Caesar cocktail (which was mostly ice). Then ordered an 8" pizza which took a long time to be served. The pizza had a very puffy, greasy crust and the olives and mushrooms could hardly be found. Not sure what the spice was, but tasted it for at least two days! Very... More
