Went here last night on a whim but we've been here before. Usually food is good but not great--on par with other good Italian restaurants. Last night, however, they were offering a special for the night of blackened salmon over lobster risotto with spinach. I usually get salmon wherever I go because I love salmon and don't make it at...

Have dined at Amici's numerous times and have been pleased with my meal every time. Food was tasty and well prepared each time I have visited. Will continue to eat there as the selection is not vast but ample.

Had a Valentine Dinner at Amici where we've always enjoyed good food and service. Although cutting some slack for a very busy night- Amici still fell short of its previously set high bar. We arrived promptly in time for our reservation at 5:30pm and was seated immediately- then we were accosted by wait staff (2x) for a drink order before... More

We love going to Amicis… they have a great bar and a really comfortable restaurant atmosphere. The service is awesome! The food is amazing! The servings are fabulous! Only thing I don't care for is the bread….I always love a good bread basket, but not worth the calories in this area, but every dish from appetizers to entrees are fantastic!... More

Went here with some family a week or so ago. My first time here, but the other guys have been here several times and have spoken highly of the food and service. We went early on a Weds evening and the place had a few tables full, but the place wasn't very busy. Scott our server came over and greeted... More

We had reservations for 7pm for 6 of us, parking on the street is a bit tough but there is a lot across the street that can be used as... More

This is one of those places that we've driven by numerous times, looked really nice and heard great things about it, but never tried. When we were making arrangements to dine out with another couple and they suggested going here, we said sure, let's do it. This was Dec 19th, the Friday night prior to Christmas. We made reservations ahead... More

I've been here twice - once recently and once last year and both when I was visiting on business. Wonderful food and experience.
