Thought we would try this restaurant out for dinner and I'm so glad we did. Delicious food, excellent service and a relaxed atmosphere. So glad we booked as we went on Friday night and the place was packed! We're keen to go back and try something else on the menu.

It was a Wednesday night and the place was full. This had caught the manager by surprise and she was quick to apologize for a lack of staff. The staff however worked extremely quickly the service was ok. The food was very tasty with generous portions. The desert was well worth the effort to squeeze it in, after a filling... More

Went here with friends. The atmosphere was quite nice but thought the food was pretty average compared to other Italian restaurants I've eaten at. That said, the deserts were nice and the food reasonably priced. One of the staff accidentally wiped what our table ordered when we were paying (no big deal) and the hostess had a go at her... More

My family has been coming here 7 years and we love the food, the ambience and the European feel. The hostess is abrupt but thats part of her charm. The pizza, the pasta and the wine is awesome

Had a solid Italian meal here with some friends and no one was disappointed. Very good house wine, pasta and my friend had a steak which he reckoned was very good. Also had live music on a Sat night.

We stopped at this restarant by chance, and although it was fairly busy they had a few empty tables and were seated right away at 7.45. Our orders (one starter, one dish of the day and pasta dish) was taken at 8.00. The drinks and the starter arrived in a normal timeframe but there then followed an unacceptable delay. My... More

Warm and welcoming. After being told by neighboring establishments that their kitchens were closed just after 9pm, Amici welcomed our group of four with open arms. Our German host was sensational. She gave us the option of inside or outside. Outside please. Her service and our food made our night in the winterless North. The word at our table was... More

We went here on a busy Saturday night. The staff were very hard working and despite being busy we did not have to wait. The food was lovely and we had starters and mains but unfortunately were too full for dessert which was a shame as the dessert menu was extensive. There was a good variety of food to order... More

This was recommended by our B & B hosts while staying in Whangarie, the prices were very reasonable and the food delicious. So much so we went back on our second night to sample some more of their menu. The service was excellent they seemed genuinely pleased to be of service, friendly and efficient. And made a point of recognising... More

This was a lovely night out with great food and great service. It was a particularly busy night but the staff coped well. The desserts are to die for and it was really nice to have such an amazing range of 'not-too-flash' desserts but something for everyone! Would highly recommend.
