“Consistently great food and service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We love Amici, the staff are pleasant and obliging and the food is consistently good. Something for everyone, pizza, pasta and more formal main course dishes. The guitarist plays beautifully at a volume that does not drown out conversation, adds to the ambience.
Our one complaint is that the guitar player smokes in the vicinity of the diners, very unpleasant. Amici is one of the few restaurants in town with true alfresco dining, lovely on a summers evening.

“A great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Amici is always enjoyable. The food is great and the service is always friendly and efficient. I love the ambiance. I feel like I'm in a cafe in Italy. I would definitely recommend it!

“Beautiful restaurant and lovely pizzas.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

We went here after 5th Nov fireworks display at about 9pm. Nowhere else was serving so we decided we would have pizza. So really we stumbled on it cos our options were limited but based on our experience I would like to go there again and enjoy a whole evening. The way they've used the space is so stunning.... It genuinely looks and feels like you're in Italy. The waitress was friendly, chatty and efficient. The pizza was yummy.

“Best ever Tirasimsu!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Great place. Relaxing, good food, good wine, good coffee. Themed nights are varied and always good entertainment. good restaurant for families/couples or groups. Eat in in front of the real fire in the colder months or on the "Italian" terrace most of the year. Busy on Sunday lunchtime. Parking close by.
