We needed to get out of the house on New Years Eve day, after nursing a cough and cold for a few days. We came by Amici Italian Grill and saw it was not too busy. So lunch at Amici it was. Greeted and quickly led to a booth, and greeted by a friendly wait person (familiar from an other... More

My wife and I came in recently without reservations while I was on crutches recovering from a broken leg. The staff went out of their way to seat us promptly and to let us know when we would be ready. We've been coming here for some time but I haven't written a review. The portions are substantial, so be prepared... More

We had a large group of family meet at Amici this week while we were in town. We were pleasantly surprised with the food quality and service with such short notice of our arrival. The manager was friends, excellent food, drinks and service. We will come back next time we are in town!

This is what the menu says, " pan fried chicken breast hand breaded in panko bread crumbs and aged romano cheese, laced with a lemon butter sauce." What I got was a store bought, machine breaded chicken breast, I could buy at Costco in a plastic bag. No Panko Not 'laced in lemon butter," but soaked, drenched, and swimming in... More

We have been to Amici many times over the years (dinners, birthdays, etc.) and it is consistently good. We joined some friends today for lunch, and it was very nice! There is a lunch special menu which is VERY reasonably priced as well as a large lunch menu. I opted for the Amici Burger - it was really tasty as... More

We usually go for lunch as we did this past week. It is less crowded and the lunch specials never disappoint. We are always greeted with a friendly smile and the service is consistently good. Also, the Tuesday evening take out specials are always wonderful. A main course, salad and bread that serves 8 of us for under $30. Get... More

This is by far one of the worst meals I have had in a long while. The restaurant itself is dark, cavernous and noisy. On the Saturday we were there I counted over 15 open tables @ 7:15. The bread was non-descript and served with one marble sized scoop of "Buttery Spread" for 4 people. The salads were fresh and... More

This is one place where you will always be greeted with a smile! Both managers, Jose and Emily make the atmosphere like a "Cheers Bar." The bar area is upscale with very nice people. The food is consistently good.

Amici is good, but nothing special as far as Italian restaurants in the area go. Everyone's food was done well. The draw backs that I see for this place are that it is slightly pricey for what you get, the service is mediocre, and the atmosphere is sort of cold feeling. I would suggest going to Amici's more for a... More
