I've enjoyed dozens of really first-rate meals at Amici over the years. I count on it for consistency and quality, and it never fails.

Been a fan of this Cary St. veteran for many years and after lunch yesterday, remain quite enthusiastic. It's settled and reliable and skilled. Richmond has been taking off in the eatery biz of late, receiving lots of out-of-town acclaim. The only worry there is that you begin to get more flash and nonsense and less solid, unpretentious performance. Here... More

My husband and I ate lunch at Amici Ristorante on Tuesday, July 22, 2014. We were initially impressed by the fact that they had a handicap lift, which we needed to access the restaurant. The owner greeted us joyfully and Josh, our server, was welcoming, knowledgable about the menu and efficient. The food was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed an appetizer... More

A friend flew in from Miami and we decided to go to Carytown. Made our reservations on open table and asked for patio seating. The girls had the rock fish and I had the veal. Excellent service along with very tasty sauces .Nothing over the top, very light. Dessert was a Tiramisu. The only bump in the road was while... More

2 had the wild boar pasta and both agreed it was delicious. 1 had the ink spaghetti with smoked trout and if you like smoked fish you will really enjoy this dish. We also had the beet tower that wasn't anything special. We had calamity that would have been excellent except they were a little too greasy. Desert was a... More

This is not your basic pizza and pasta with red sauce. This fine Italian cuisine artfully prepared. Great for foodies.

My husband and I enjoy coming to Amici's, and this time we couldn't make up our minds on what we wanted. We ended up choosing a 5 course meal paired with wine and it was by far the best thing we could have done. We tasted things that we would not have normally ordered and enjoyed the element of surprise.... More

We decided to make a reservation for a early dinner on Saturday. The online option was very helpful and easy to use. At our arrival Carlo had a table ready in the patio area which was a surprise since we did not specify when we made the reservation. The dinner was promptly served and carefully spaced between courses. The food... More

This is not your typical Italian restaurant. The food here is unique, fresh, well presented and out of the ordinary. Don't come here expecting your usual pasta with meatballs, baked ziti or weal parmigiana. The service was excellent, the wine list was excellent and the desserts were very good. The pasta is made in house and really made the dishes.... More
