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.

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

I was here during my vacation in sicily, and this was the only bad food we managed to have during that week. I visited the place because our guidebook suggested it as a decent eatery, but it turned out the guidebook was out of date and the "good" restaurant had closed in the meantime, leaving its place to "amici miei"....

Alessandro is the host of this tiny exquisite restaurant. Six tables with a table for one in the best spot. The food is lovely, fresh, local. There is a warm welcome for new faces. Alessandro and Chef are keen to help you experience the local dishes. Generous with little tastes of this and that. The Chef and Alessandro are charming... More
