Nice Italian Restaurant.

Nice Italian Restaurant in Santa Teresa on Main Street. The owner is a real Italian from North Italy, pizza and pasta are very authentic. The pizza is made in an original oven, great. Also the size.

We just finished eating our pizza and would say it definitely did not meet our expectations. First, we ordered delivery and were told it would take 20 minutes and it took 65 minutes. Second, the toppings were flavourless and scarce. On a few slices of the Hawaiian, there was not even any ham. I understand that traditional Italian pizza is... More

Dirt or some other crunchy item in my meal, my wife's jumbo shrimp were the size of a penny. Don't do it. I WILL say that our server was very kind.

The restaurant offers great pizzas and traditional Italian pasta. The place was renovated from last years and feels very good, comfortable light and nice chill music. The service was good and we got to eat our pizzas in less than 10 minutes. We will come back ! Thanks

It was a quiet night and we had drinks and appetizers. The appetizers were flavorful and delicious. The staff was a bit slow but maybe because it was slow night. Overall they were very friendly.

We just returned from a fantastic meal at Amici. Everything was wonderful! I had the Pollo Saltimbocca, which was a very large portion of the most tender and perfectly cooked chicken fillet I have had in CR, and my husband had Pizza Capriccosa and Shrimp and Zucchini Pasta. The pizza crust was outstanding, freshly prepared and then cooked in their... More

Amazing service, drinks, and food. We ordered the tuna ceviche to start, which was outta this world good. Melted in our mouths. My friend and I both were craving some tequila so we went with the margs which were also exactly what we need after a day surfing. For dinner we split the pesto, again wonderful. Loved the vibe, waiter... More

Enjoyed Amici for its service and really tasty food. The portions were a bit small for me personally though and the prices a bit too high.
