Yesterday we and a group of friends had our Christmas lunch at Amici in Whangarei. Unfortunately it was pouring with rain so we weren't able to eat outside - much nicer than inside. However, the food was great as was the service - efficient and friendly. Most of our group had just an hour for lunch and we were all... More

Yes, the two glasses of wine were at least room temperature. Apart from that the service was good but if you can, eat outside. The acoustics inside are terrible because there are no soft surfaces and the artificial grape vines are obviously difficult to dust. The food was okay but if I had served peas as hard as those I...

We were disappointed in both the wine list and... More

Fantastic restaurant. Every time we go to Whangarei we go here for dinner. The hospitality is amazing. The lovely owner and staff go above and beyond and are so welcoming. The atmosphere is nice and you feel like you are in a little piazza in Italy (well an NZ version anyway). Blankets and gas fires if you are outside too!... More
