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

On my recent stay in Melbourne I visited Amiconi's twice. I have been there before and it's nice to find the atmosphere and food has not changed. It has a very friendly old style Italian atmosphere to the place The food whether you choose the pasta or meat is perfectly served. On my first visit I had the chicken and... More

On a recent trip to Melbourne we were given a tip by a local to dine at Amiconi, so we booked in for my birthday lunch. 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.

Although this restaurant is small the food here is amazing!! Please book in advance to afford disappointment! As a family we decided to get 2 banquets to share between all four of us. Its great value at $69 each that way you get to try lots of dishes. Dishes include garlic bread, calamari, mussels, gnocci just to name a few.The... More

Went here (yet again) with a friend on a weekday evening prior to the annual wine / food week trip. It did not disappoint. We opted for a mix of garlic and herb bread, followed by a trio of pasta to share, and then had the special dessert - an orange pudding with marscapone ice cream. And yes, the dessert... More
