This place is a little run down but food is really good. I had spinach ravioli. They could have better choices for desserts, we skipped that.

Visited with friends while there for a business trip. Started with an amazing wine recommended by Carlo, along with a fig and goat cheese appetizer, that included white and black figs, so fresh and wonderful ! House made fresh ravioli were quite a treat as was the lamb chops, finest I have ever had! A must visit in this lovely... More

Bottom line: Small restaurant with big prices. Small portions but the food was of excellent quality. Service was good. They don't open until 5:30. The menu as shown online is not accurate. They appear to change it up (which is quite nice). Details: - We sat in the front of the restaurant and it was HOT in there. We were... More

If you've lived in Europe as we have you get pretty durn nit picky about authentic Italian. We dropped in here after 8 on a Sunday evening and were enthusiastically welcomed. A nice glass of wine followed along with some smoked trout and lentils crostini. I fell into the tomato concasse with the bread sticks and only came back out... More

Great place to enjoy a great meal. We brought our parents here to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary. Amici accommodated our large party expertly. We were a large party of 13 adults and ordered a variety of dishes from hors d'oeuvres to salads to entres. Not a complaint was heard and many raves were heard. I myself enjoyed the Grouper... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here recently. The staff was very attentive, and the homemade pasta was quite tasty. The atmosphere is charming, with white linens and flowers on the tables. The only negative thing in the experience was a charge of $5 for a small glass of Perrier. Opt for regular water instead! Otherwise, this place gets a very... More

We had a party of 14, aside from the extra bit of wait time while others finished their meals, everything was really tasty. Knowledgable wait-staff, friendly owner who greeted us, and delicious options all over the menu made Amici's a special treat.

I often eat alone at the bar - though I'm never alone, with the wonderful staff, the ingratiating owner, and the regular patrons I've come to know. But I'm a regular because the food is ALWAYS delicious and consummately prepared. I'm a duck fanatic and have enjoyed duck entrees on multiple continents, but Amici's duck breast with sweet black cherry... More

From the moment we walked in I was reminded of Venice. No canals, but the elegance of the intimate surroundings, the warmth of the service, and the deliciousness of the food. This is not the place to come if you are looking for a quick bite to eat to take a break from shopping. But if you are looking for... More
