“Would definately return !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We tried Amici based on Tripadvisor reviews

We went on a Wed night at 6pm thinking at that time and day there would be no need to book and it was very busy ! [a good sign], we got the last indoor table.

We had our 4 year old with us. Firstly we were warmly greeted and the waiter immediately brought crayons and drawing paper to our table. The food was very good too. The waiters were very attention to us and our 4 year old which is excellent to see.

It was so good we went back for takeaways one or two nights later

I cannot fault this place all I ask for when dining is good food, good service and good atmosphere and Amici achieved all those

We will definitely go back again

“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

YUM! Amici is by far the best place to eat out on the sunshine coast, only problem I have is deciding which meal to order as they are all amazing! Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.. they go all out to satisfy with taste, presentation, friendly staff and prices. If you haven't eaten here before, you NEED to! I highly recommend Amici Cafe for all types of food lovers

“We froze!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

The restaurant had booked a large group for a birthday and then expected other guests to sit outside ina freezing breeze with a couple of inadequate gas heaters which ran out of gas before we were ready to leave. The food was fine and good value but after making a booking days before, we expected the same comfort as other guests.

We’re glad you enjoyed the food, and we appreciate the comment you made after your meal that the waitress looking after you that evening was so lovely. Indeed, it was a very cold and windy night in Caloundra! Usually our heaters are more than sufficient but it was definitely an exceptionally cold winter’s night. We did have a couple of our local regular guests offer up the heater near them so that your comfort could be accommodated for since they could see and hear how upset you were to be seated in the al fresco dining area. We also replaced the gas bottle as soon as we were aware that it had run out, as we always have replacement bottles for this reason, but we understand that to sit in the cold is very uncomfortable and we apologize for the inconvenience. The birthday table was a very large group and had booked the party 2 months in advance. We always try to be fair with our guests and it was our mistake that we didn’t alert you at the time of booking that you could potentially be in the al fresco dining area. As it was a full house that evening, we sat each booking in the order of when they booked. Because we are a small restaurant, until the tables and chairs have been re-arranged we don’t always know exactly where all of our guests will be sitting until we’ve finalized the table arrangement which happens an hour before dinner service. Because there were other bookings before yours, even though you had booked the day before, they did take priority and had the other remaining inside tables. We do apologize that we couldn’t do more to accommodate you. We hope that if you ever decide to come and visit us again that you will have a better dining experience.

“Excellent meal with service to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

14 of us were there for dinner which was served within a short time frame and the waitress couldn't do enough for us. Great point of difference for this restaurant

“Awesome Place to Eat - from a harsh critic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

After finding myself on this website to find a nice place out to eat I am glad I came across this restaurant an read the reviews. I rang up and booked in letting them know there would be two adults and a 2 year old. When arriving we had a table ready for us with a great child's seat and coloring in to keep my son happy. The service was very friendly but not overbearing. Now to the important part. The food was everything I expected it to be from the reviews on here. Well presented, heaps of flavour and fairly priced. The atosphere was also perfect for a romantic but casual night out even with a 2 yr old. I haven't enjoyed a dinner out as much as I did their in quite some time. Will definately be an option when considering where to eat out from now on.
