Nice surprise in Avon

Stopped for lunch with a friend and was delighted by this restaurant. The food was terrific and a lunch portion was excellent value. I had a risotto and my friend had Chicken Christina and we both cleaned our plates. It is in one of Route 44's many strip malls so very convenient. The ambience... read more

Nice happy hour menu and discounted drinks. The managers, Jose and Emily are fantastic. Bartenders Kate and Ashleigh do a great job. Also a good place for dinner. Nice music and good service.

I first ate at Amici's a few months ago with friends and it was very good. Decided to bring my family back on 7/12/15 for my birthday dinner. We arrived and were seated promptly, and when they came to give us ice water, we were told their ice machine was broken so there was no ice for the drinks. I... More

I like Amicis for lunch. Been here a few dozen times. Great service and the best eggplant fries. I love the chicken or eggplant panini. I have had dinner a few times and it's good too.

as one of the few independent restaurants in the area i feel so bad dissing amici in any way. but the food is really just ok and not spectacular. the servers are lovely and its a nice upscale atmosphere, which is hard to find in the valley. just don't come looking for authentic, memorable italian.

We have been here twice, once of lunch, once for dinner. The atmosphere was relaxed and the light dim, but not too dim. Lunch has wraps, paninis and their regular menu. The lunch prices were outstanding and the food quite good, an outstanding value! Dinner a little more but the food was also very good. The wait staff was very... More

Set in a small shopping complex on Route 44 in Avon is Amici’s Italian Grill. We stopped in for Saturday dinner in late May. Having made reservations, we were brought to a table in just a few minutes. There is a small bar area with big TV’s near the entrance. The lighting in the restaurant is dim overall, probably to...

salads tasted good but croutons in Caesar were too hard and regular salad was in an unattractive serving bowl. Veal dishes tasted good but shrimp dishes were way over cooked, shrimp were tough. Risotto was good but looked unattractive. Service was spotty. Waitress was less attentive and efficient than we expected. Prices were very good. Three out of seven of... More
