nice italian restaurant, service a bit odd, orders not taken from those seated first, it seemed to be the nearest tables to the counter got seen to first and then they worked back. We were in the middle so didnt have to wait that long.8inch pizza was the perfect size for me .

The food at Amici can't be faulted. It is honest and good. What most people would expect out of italian-style fare. The prawn salad was delicious and the fried calamari generous.
