This restaurant was recommended by my B&B host for dinner. We didn't have reservations but were seated without hesitation. The waitress spoke no English, which is fine, but she refused to wait on us and referred us to the owner. The owner came over and spoke Italian nonstop even though I don't... read more

Great small restaurant with superb service from owner and staff. Fish lovers paradise.. we went with some Italian friends who frequent often so that says something! We left choice of local wine to the owner and it was superb. Four of us shared aperitivi and then a primo of swordfish and tonno.. followed by the chefs own version of cannoli... More

We had planned to eat at Cafe DuDu, but it had closed and Amici Miei opened in its place. We went in on the recommendation of the shopkeeper next door and greatly enjoyed our meal. We had a sublime pasta dish and DH had a beef dish that he loved. The local wine recommended by the owner was delicious and... More

We usually use trip advisor but today we had no WiFi and just picked a restaurant close to area we were in. It was such a pleasant experience and some of the best good we have had in our 6 weeks of travel. The staff was exceptional. I wish this restaurant was in my back yard.

My friend is based in Washington DC and comes to Sicily once a year. We discovered this restaurant three years ago and now every time she comes to Sicily this restaurant is a MUST. We make a special trip to Messina from Catania just to have a delicious meal there. They are exceptional. The owner goes out of his way... More

This restaurant is very small,7 or 8 tables. And the decor is very pleasant and soothing... The food was fresh and well-prepared, it was a little pricey but worth it.

Came to eat lunch with my partner at Amici Miei. The fish is extremely fresh and tasty. The antipasto of tuna with onion was very nice and cooked well. We shared a second dish of 2 different Risotto's, one made with pistachio, and the other with almonds. I have to say it's one of the best Risotto dishes I have... More
