Amici is one of my favorite casual Italian restaurants in Buffalo! I have been there for several dinners and I always leave full and happy! It's the perfect restaurant to go to for wine and a traditional Italian meal. The atmosphere is very warm and relaxing. The food is homemade and the servers are always upbeat and friendly. My favorite... More

We usually choose Amici Ristorante as one of our "Go-To" stops during Restaurnat Week. The food is always wonderful and the portions, in the past, have been generous. Tonight we had two entrees which were skimpy at best. - I ordered the combo platter: Chicken Parm, Eggplant Parm and Pene Pasta. I barely had any eggplant on the plate. Even... More

I haven't been here for well over 10 years and decided to take my adult daughters for dinner. We had 7:30 reservations. We arrived 10 minutes early and were told our table wasn't ready, no problem we would have a drink at the tiny bar. I ordered a bottle of wine and the bartender opened the bottle and poured three...

Are you looking for a 'local' Italian restaurant with truly good food? Well then, look no further than Amici's. We marveled at the well prepared risotto, eggplant and fresh salad with really good, mozzarella cheese slices included. Our bellies were happy, happy, happy!

Went with a party of 9 for New Year's Eve. Very friendly staff from the moment we walked in. Service was outstanding with a very attentive staff. Our appetizers included stuffed banana peppers, arancini & fried calamari. Everyone agreed....best appetizers ever. From traditional Italian (chicken parmesan) to the grouper piccata, our meals were fantastic. They even put together a pasta... More

After our reservations at another restaurant were unexpectedly canceled, Amici accommodated a last-minute reservation for Saturday night at 6 o'clock. When we arrived, we were seated right away in the corner of the restaurant. We were brought the drink, wine, and specials menus right away. There was a lot to look over and we were given plenty of time before... More

We have dined here many times over the years, and the food and service are consistently very good. My wife judges Italian restaurants by their lasagna, and Amici's is her favorite. I tried the grouper piccata and it was excellent - perfectly cooked, over angel hair pasta n a light sauce, with perfectly done vegetables. The bread was warm and... More
