My husband and I dined here this evening. Just divine. We started with the calamari and the octopus, followed up with the spanish gourmet pizza and ended with the tirimisu and the key lime pie. Cannot fault any of these dishes. Well balanced flavours and very generous portions. The staff were attentive and engaging. A wonderful experience. In fact the... More

The food at Amici's is excellent and the meals arrived quite quickly. The service was excellent and the wait staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable, even though we had not booked and there weren't any tables available, they made one up for us. Because they are so busy, even mid-week, I recommend that you book... More

Loved the chicken avocado pizza! The kids also enjoyed a margarita pizza. I liked that the pizzas weren't overpowered with onion at all. Instead, the toppings were fresh and tasty. The large size for the pizza is pretty big - I could only eat 2 slices (quarter of the pizza). The staff were friendly and attentive, and the pizzas were... More

We think you are catering to people who don't know what quality should be. We chose the special of the day which in most restaurants should be the freshest and best available, in this case the "sweetlip fillet". In this part of the world this should mean fresh and top quality. Unfortunately these meals were the opposite! The fish had... More

Had a fantastic meal last night at Amici Cafe. I had veal and prawn tortellini, Cameron had chicken rissotto. Wait staff are fast, efficient and friendly. Nice way to end a day.

A show in Caloundra with friends had us visiting Amici for the first time. It looks very smart from the outside with numerous staff to deal with both diners and take-away service. With both inside and outside dining areas, we were shown a comfortable corner inside and away from the hustle of the service counter. Service was excellent, our waitress... More
