“Mouth-watering menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Since it opened, Amicis has been my favorite restaurant in this area. I have been twice lately with different groups of eight and both times, upon reading the menu, someone has said 'my mouth is watering already'. The margherita flatbread and fried ravioli were delicious and good appetizers for sharing. The calamari the same as any other restaurant. I enjoyed the special Cod Oscar one evening and Veal Marsala on another occasion. Everyone agreed that portions were good and prices very reasonable. The decor is excellent and there is a beautiful bar.

“A trip back to Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Wonderful ambiance and the food was great! It felt like Italy in the middle of Illinois. I had risotto with Salmon and tomato cream sauce. Great for Gluten Free. The Spinach and Cheese Ravioli were excellent. Fresh made pasta. Ceiling lights appear like stars. Murals cover the walls Can't wait to go back again. The owners and people who worked there were extremely helpful and personable.

“good little local place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

We have eaten here twice, It is a good little restaurant. A bit pricey but thats okay. We love the food. The only thing we do not like is that there is only one free refill on soda. My husband is a big soda drinker and can usually down 4-5 glasses at a meal. But we never leave dissapointed. Always leave with full stomachs. Will have to go more so we can try more dishes.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Happened upon Amici's and it has quickly become my favorite restaurant. We have tried a few things on the menu and they are all fantastic! The decor is charming-the prices are great! We drive an hour to get there but it is worth the trip! Highly recommend!
