Excellent italian

My husband and I went to Amici for a late dinner. We did not have reservations and got a table without a problem. The service was good - not the fastest in the world but friendly enough. We ordered the stuffed banana peppers to start which were delicious. My husband and I both ordered pasta which... read more

Dined here with a group of friends. The food was adequate - nothing special compared to other Italian Restaurants in this general area. Our Server - was lackadaisical. Feel free to at least show you are slightly interested. Long waits after drinks were ordered. When one member of the party mentioned she works in the entertainment industry - service picked... More

I was scrambling last minute to find a venue for my daughter's first communion. I pass Amici's everyday on my way to and from my gym. I had heard great things about it. I decided to go to dinner there that night to try it out. We were floored at how amazing it was!! I am a foodie, but I... More

GREAT food, perfect wine, wonderful service. Even parking was easy! The food was cooked to order. The chef is no slouch! He has us dribbling and "ahhhing" within 15 minutes. Salads were fresh, bread super!

Great italian food in the middle of the village of Kenmore! Waitress are very nice and accommodating. Food was excellent, my eggplant parmigiana was super, my husband lives for their chicken parmigiana and my son loved both their chicken fingers and warm bread. I would say the restaurant is more for adult but if you decide to bring children it... More

I've eaten there several times and have never been disapointed with the food or the service. Salads are crisp and fresh, dressings subtle. Pastas cooked perfectly al dente. I have two favorites, Tripe in red sauce and Calamari over linguini. My wife is quite partial to the Eggplant Parmagiana. Breaded eggplant baked with red sauce and fresh mozzarella cheese served...

Went to Amici's with family Friday evening and sat on the patio. The best Carbonara pasta ever!!! Perfectly balanced and seasoned. The portions were good too. The only thing that I would change is the amount of lettuce that came with the antipasto. We split it among four and although the toppings were plentiful, there didn't seem to be enough... More
