My wife and I had family surprise us from far away. I hadn't seen my cousin in 51 years. We were asked if there was a "special" place? - Sure is! Amici! My wife and I arrived early enjoying cocktails in the bar where it seems like everyone is a friend. My family shared great food and memories and everyone... More

My husband I went there on a late afternoon. We had appetizers, fried mozzarella and squash flowers! If you ever have the opportunity, try the flowers! They were stuffed with cheese, and fried to perfection. Slight hints of honey and vinegar. Delicious! An Italian dish, which I have fried many times, no way near as good! Would love their recipe!...

Awesome restaurant, a great variety of menu items to choose from. Eggplant Parm is my favorite. The owner is always there and comes around to meet and talk to the patron's, always asking if everything is ok. The bar is filled too with great music playing and everyone is happy and very friendly. A welcoming place to come enjoy great... More

I have eaten here many times and always get a tasty meal prepared with my food allergies in mind. The wait staff are always courteous and certainly considerate of my food allergies. They never act like it is troubling and relay my limitations to the chief --the result is always a good meal. During the summer months they have a... More

We were in the area on a late Sunday afternoon and I needed to make a quick choice for dinner. It looked dark and quiet but we were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted and seated quickly. We received our drinks, water and bread for the table quickly as well. Within 15 minutes the restaurant was filled which says a lot... More

My dinner was very good. I had eggplant parm and it was a generous portion. Sauce was good. The service was good too. The owner comes around and asks if everything is good which I think is nice.

Easting on outside in nice weather is great. The food is very good I have eaten here several times and each time I have ordered something different. They give you a lot of food for the money. You will love eating here.

I had dinner outside with a friend on a lovely Friday evening. They do not take reservations for two people, but we arrived around 6:45 and only had to wait a few minutes for a table outside. Service was friendly, and relatively efficient, except when we were ready to pay for our meals it seemed like no one was paying... More

I have been here for dessert with another couple as well as sat on the patio for dinner with my family including young children. The food was outstanding. We ordered an eggplant appetizer and I couldn't get enough. Great entrees and pizza as well. Loved sitting on the patio. Very clean and well kept!
