A true North Melbourne gem. Fantastic Italian food, great service. Place is very popular and gets booked out on weekends. I was there for early dinner on a weekday and it was packed. Try the Linguini Marinara and Eggplant Parma - both are really good !

On a busy Saturday night in the cities North my family was treated to a delightful dining experience at Amiconi. Only taking reservations over the phone, this family owned and run Italian restaurant is a hidden gem! From the moment we entered the restaurant to the moment we left, the staff were fantastic and the service was great! The food... More

I have been dining here for what seems decades - and it really has been! What a gorgeous small restaurant, usually cramped, full of noise, laughter, bustling waiters, aromas, fun .... a very special and quality restaurant of the highest order. Of course there is Michael Cardamone, the omnipresent maître d', and Michael is only the second owner after decades... More

It was a really lovely experience, the food was exquisite the waiter was attentive and very friendly, I couldn't fault our meal or service. This is a small intimate restaurant which was busy but...

This is not a place to come to if you want quiet dining and plenty of elbow room - it's small, lively, crowded but at least you can hold a conversation with your dinner companions as you are so close to each other. The food was excellent and I particularly recommend the sweet potato gnocchi. Service prompt and friendly and... More

After nearly 45 years I went back to Amiconi. Back then you could get a hearty 3 course meal for $15. Well prices have changed but the place is still as good as it was 40 years ago Warm efficient service, excellent range to choose from and wonderful generous portion sizes. Food delicious. Highly recommended We'll go back soon I'm... More

Just a great restaurant. My boss Max Norris introduced me in the 70's and have been eating here ever since. Always special. Tonight we ate the specials. Linguini entrée, light a feather then lamb. Also light and serving just right.

Great family owned business. Traditional Italian fare served by caring staff. Would highly recommend the calamari and the pasta. Beautifully cooked.
