We visited for dinner midweek, and had a wonderful experience - the appetizer and entree specials were delicious, as were the gelato and sorbet that we chose for dessert. Service was friendly, attentive and excellent.

We were visiting and went there on a whim. Beautiful decor in an old Richmond home. We warmly treated throughout our meal. Excellent service and the owner checked on us as we left. Great fresh authentic well presented food. We will return and highly recommend this estabent.

My husband and I have dined here since at least the year 2000. So far, we have never been disappointed. The food as always been exceptional and the staff takes care of their customers. It's been a great place to go when we want a romantic night out with great food, service and ambience.

We had a party of 20+ for a celebration of life. Carlos opened early for us and had a separate room set up for our group. The service was first class and the food was delicious. The food presentation was beautiful. I especially liked what he did with a cucumber. Thank you Carlos for your attention to detail and all... More

We had a group of 4 couples. They were able to accommodate us perfectly with separate bills and timely food service. I loved the neighborhood this restaurant is in and wished I had more time to explore. They were out of a lot of food items (due to Valentine's Day) but the food that was available was very tasty.

Very small main dining room. Music is muted, but still gets rather loud with all tables conversing. There were many antipasti not on the regular menu, so many, in fact, I could not remember them all. A daily printed specials sheet would be a nice touch. The octopus salad was nicely done, not rubbery at all. The caprese salad had... More

I had eaten here before, but I asked Carlo, the owner to handle a 23 person dinner. We agreed on a limited menu. Four course service with drinks. Unbelievable. He should be proud to have such a nice establishment. Do yourself a favor and stop in.

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.
