5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Beautiful food, great atmosphere, location and service. We celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary here earlier this week and it was amazing, authentic food, reasonably priced, with friendly staff. Our desert was even personalised with 'Happy 14th Anniversary' ! A wonderful personalised touch. We will definitely be back. Thanks guys for a great evening!

“Lovely dining ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We ate here as we love Pizza and Caloundra. This is the best of both. Friendly service, nice meal with generous portions. The chicken parmigiana was a winner too. Just make sure you book ahead to reserve a table as a lot of people who just rock up are turned away due to being booked out. They do take away also.

“Great Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We ate at Amici Cafe while staying at Caloundra. It was probably the best meal we had during our stay and was very reasonably priced. We had scallopini and schnitzel both of which came with beautifully steamed vegetables. In fact the vegetables were probably the highlight. Well worth a visit!

“Friendly staff & great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Visited Amici Cafe last night for the first time and glad we did! We stayed at Rumba Resort only meters down the road so being a BYO restaurant was great as we finished a bottle of wine and was no need to drive! Meal was great and the staff were very friendly and helpful giving us great service all night. Nice intimate cafe with a great atmosphere and soft lighting. If you are looking for a great night out with great service and food then go visit Amici Cafe Caloundra!

“Great service and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Dined for the first time here, it is casual dining and you can BYO wine too. Actually Sunday night was a $10 pizza special! The waitress was very helpful with a helping me select a wine and recommending a pasta dish.
We had the calamari and garlic prawns for entree, the portion was ample. I enjoyed the seafood marinara pasta, the sauce had great flavour to it and actually I couldn't eat it all and was offered a take-home container. I bought a take-away lemon meringue pie, to fit in later, it was delish. My husband had the chicken schnitzel, with vegies and chips, which was as good you can expect from a schnitzel. The pricing is fair but not cheap.
The outdoor seating does have a real lean to it. With definitely return with kids to try their pizza and gnocchi!
