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

We have had many occasions to enjoy Amici's restaurant since moving to Calgary a couple of years ago. We find the food quality very good and the service is also very good in that you can enjoy your meal without frequent interruptions.

As always Amici's is the best. Have been there several times. Food, service, value. The owner comes out all the time and chats with her customers. I love this place. We usually go with friends after work, we stay longer than we should and never get the feeling it is time to leave. Thank you

We have been to Amici's several times in the past as it is close to where my mother-in-law lives so is convenient when we are going to visit her. Although they definitely don't serve the best Italian food that I've ever eaten, in the past the food was always fairly decent and consistent with good service. We recently visited again... More

Service very slow. Staff unfriendly; from the hostess, to the waitress, to the owner. Needs renovations big time! Food very disappointing. We were regulars when this restaurant first opened, and it was really good! Then a couple years later we noticed a decline in food and service, after a really bad experience with the food quality and service we did... More

Live in this area for 6 year but first time dine in this restaurant. It is a nice family style Italian restaurant. We have ordered a grilled platter and the meat is a little bit dry. However the sausage and taste is good. Chicken ceaser is excellent. Salad is very fresh and chicken is moist and tender. Price is good... More
