“Re-opened May 2013 at Il Porto, new owner, renovated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

After being closed for several months, this restaurant has re-opened as Il Porto, renovated and with new owners. The food is continental with italian specialties such as pizza and calzones available in the dining room at night. Had the calamari salad which was very generous and loaded with prosciutto, artichokes, cheese and roasted red peppers. The steak with the bernaise sauce was cooked perfectly although heavy on the sauce. The new owners are cordial and want to please.

Dear Friend

All reviews received lead us to be better for the future, we know that you have had the opportunity to taste one of our main dishes so your opinion has been well received and we have effectively rationed bernese amount of sauce on the plate. Come back soon and we hope your new opinion on the matter. But I want to recommend to try other of our specialties.

Best regards,

Bernal

“Really nice local place, friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Myself and friend stopped by here on a recent roadtrip and had some great food. The staff were really friendly in this place and it was nice to sit back and watch the locals come by for a catch up. There werent that many places to go to in the town but I was glad to have picked this place. I would recommed coming here and Madison is beautiful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I've been dining at Amici with friends for the past two years. The food is excellent, the value excellent, and the service friendly. What more can you ask for?
