The title says it all! This restaurant is fantastic! The waitstaff was excellent. The appetizers were great, and the main course was divine. Great selection of wines. However be sure to make reservations.

I really felt like pasta for lunch so we tried this place out. We were the only diners for a Tuesday lunch. The waitress was really helpful when we chose a bottle of white that was much sweeter than we expected and she let us try 3 others so we could get a bottle that wasn't so sweet. The pasta... More

We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon at the open air market stalls around Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo. As fans of public markets and urban spaces, we loved the bustle, sounds and smells. Lunchtime and we needed a place. I spied couples eating on balconies overlooking the square, it was Amici Miei Ristorante and they could seat us on one... More

A good place to have quick lunch in San Telmo area (near the main square). Service was good, but the food wasn't anything exceptional for Italian. Best part of the meal was the appetizers (mushrooms with cheese were great). Pasta was good.

It's fine. It's good, not great. I ordered the fresh homemade pasta and honestly could not tell the difference. Not memorable but not terrible. Be forewarned that they charge a cubierto or "cover charge" on top of the already over-priced food. (and of course there's the tip on top of that)

Sitting at san telmo square. Did a quick TA search for best place to eat. And highly ranked amici miei was just across the street. Squid ink black pasta is my favorite. Seafood was fresh and plenty. Pasta was perfect. Bread is warm (not usual cold and hard). Quick lunch so didn't do multi courses. But this is enough to... More

I went to this restaurant with high hopes given the large amounts of Italian immigrants resident in BA. But, mamma mia the food was poor and the price completely unjustified. If you're familiar with Strada in England then you've eaten at a better restaurant than Amici Miei. The pizzas had nice ingredients sure, but sadly there was more crust than... More

Amici Miei was directly across the street from our apartment so we hoped to make it our "go-to" restaurant during our stay. Sadly, it didn't live up to the hype in quality of food or ambience. The four of us ordered different starters and entrees and all agreed they were fine, but nothing extraordinary enough to bring us to the... More
