A favorite since it opened, this is a lovely trattoria with a fun bar. Their salads are great and large. All the pricing is reasonable. It's a fine place for business lunching and casual ones as well. Staff is affable and kind. When they have it, they make great sangria with peach shnapps. A fine minestrone and terrific bolognese sauce,... More

Impatient service. Competent meals, but not inspiring. Atmosphere is dated. Music inappropriate. At least the prices were acceptable.

I was very surprised when I read the reviews for Amici were so high. We were there this past Tuesday and the customer service was terrible. There was no one to greet us at the door, we waited about 5 minutes for someone to appear and then we were not welcomed but rather just shown to our reserved table. It... More

This is a great Italian restaurant, with medium price range, but well worth the few extra dollars. They have a filet of sole that is to superb. It was a special years ago, then was on the menu. If it's not, ask them if they can make it. Great daily drink specials and nice outdoor seating area during the spring... More

Stopped by for a visit and ended up staying for three hours. "Tommy" poured our cocktails and chatted with us. We took his suggestion for food and were not disappointed.My wife had the pesto pasta and I had the calamari. Both were fantastic!! As an extra bonus we were treated to some great live Jazz on a Tuesday night. What... More

Amici's, as it is known locally, is a favorite of locals living in the Palm Springs area. The cozy atmosphere, friendly owners and wait staff and excellent food at decent prices is really all you need to know. I've been to this restaurant a number of times and had a great experience every time. The bar area is small but... More

Amici's is one the Palm Springs/Coachella Valley's favorite restaurants with many locals. The owners are friendly, accommodating as possible and the food and service excellent. Every place has an occasional misfire but I've eaten here many times with very few issues. When they've occurred, they been immediately remedied. You can't ask for more than that. The dishes are variations of... More

Amici is delightful. Service beginning with the welcome by the maitre 'd is outstanding. The food delicious from pasta to fresh fish to other outstanding items. Atmosphere more upscale. Don't wear jeans; desert chic. Nice clientele. We're going back again soon; I'm still thinking how delicious the food was, and reasonably priced.

My partner and I were rather excited about dinner at Amici's as I had never been there and he had not been there for some time. The wait time of 15 minutes did not seem unreasonable, considering it was the middle of dinner time and we walked in without reservations. However, as we were waiting, the jazz band concluded their... More

My husband & I frequent Amicis on a weekly basis. We generally sit at the bar. If you are lucky enough to be there on a day that Tommy is bartending, brace yourself. He is the funniest thing going. The lunch specials are reasonable & delicious. 2 choices for $8.95. The Amici salad is to die for. By the way,... More
