We went to Amici for our evening meal while visiting Torquay on the back of a recommendation from the owner of the hotel we were staying in, and to be honest, I wish we hadn't. It was extremely overpriced, with most starters, including garlic bread, being around £6. I declined a starter while my partner opted for the risotto balls,... More

Just back from a few days break in Torquay and got recommended by a local to try this, and so glad that we did. In fact, we went twice in the 4 days we were there. Children pasta with tomato sauce was amazing - the bowl was emptied at speed. We both had chicken dishes which were also very good,... More

We discovered Amici last summer, we like it so much that we will drive 61.2 miles to go there almost every month! The food is amazing, who says there is no such ting as quality and quantity? At Amici you get both and also their prices are very reasonable too. I recommend trying the Linguine al Pesto (although I swap... More

We went to amici for lunch while visiting torquay! We were a bit apprehensive at first as it looks about worn out from the outside, but as soon as we got in our experience changed to being really great! The atmosphere is nice, the place is very clean and tidy and looks well cared for. The food was brilliant really... More

We were staying in a hotel that served terrible food, and were all delighted and relieved to find this place as the perfect antidote. Efficient service, wonderfully clean and well-designed interior, great menu. High quality. Not too expensive either. Could hardly be any better! We came here twice in 3 days: it was great both times.

It can get very busy so make sure you book to avoid disappointment we will be going back I had salmone which was fresh and tasty and partner had a pizza which he throughly enjoyed. Good value for money as well

This is an italian restaurant serving fairly straightforward menus. What was quite different was the speed of the service and the caring attitude from staff. It was very busy when we visited but our orders were dealt with very quickly. The quality of the food was good and the menu choice varied enough to suit one of our "picky" diners.... More
