Delicious

We ate here twice during our 5 night stay and both times everything was perfect. The pizza and pasta are delicious and all the ingredients are fresh and flavourful. Service was quick and pleasant and I enjoyed both of our suppers.

We had a delcious pizza here on night as we were wandering around having small bites of food at a couple different spots. Drinks were ok, nothing special but good. Pizza was best in town (better then tomate or the bakery). I thought the pasta menu was a bit small for an Italian place as there wasn't alot of pastas... More

The place itself is very nice. The atmosphere and outdoor seating is great on a warm night. The food was just ok though. It certainly wasn't bad but I felt they were trying to make plates that you see on cooking shows on TV but they didn't have the skill to do it. This place changed names and the old... More

The name of the restaurant says it all "Amici" which means friends in Italian and the owners certainly make you feel like a friend of theirs from the time you walk in until the time you leave. I'm always in the mood for great Italian food and this restaurant qualifies as great Italian. They have a great selection of pasta... More

Great atmosphere but food is just ok. Pizza was watery and floppy, but we liked the focaccia (made like a pizza but without sauce. Service was really really slow, so get some drinks and plan to hang out for a while.
