Description: Amici Restaurant strives to ensure that each and every one of our diners enjoys a memorable dining experience. A large number or our clientele are from all points in North America, dining here while in town on business. These and other clients return because they enjoy our creative meals and atmosphere. Our menu changes on a daily basis, yet we still serve some of our classics regularly. We also like to offer some more exotic dishes such as ostrich, wild boar, bison and venison for those who like to try something new each time they visit. The food is always fresh, ordered from around the world and through local suppliers who seek out the best local produce when it is in season. Our serving staff are careful to fulfill any dietary requests including helping patrons to avoid any foods to which they are allergic. We will also ensure a strict vegetarian meal, if requested. Amici Catering is also available for those who would like to enjoy our service

“Extraordinary restaurant”
Reviewed December 26, 2011

I've gone to Amici restaurant hundreds of times over the past 25 years. Without exception, the food is outstanding, the service is prompt and helpful, with very experienced staff, and the atmosphere is elegant. Easily one of the top three restaurants in Winnipeg. Not cheap, but quality control is great. Will continue to see it as "the" place to take close friends. Highly recommend it.

Amici takes dining to the next level. Impecable service and food, its definately one of the finest in Winnipeg. Of course, there is a price to pay for this and it's not cheap. For special occasions and feeling a need to be pampered, this is the place to go.

“Still amazing after all these years!”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

It's been at least 10 years since I've been to Amici. It used to be my favourite restaurant in Winnipeg and it was convenient because I worked in the Broadway area. With the plethora of great restaurants in the city there's always a new one to try or a new favourite to return to. It took me too long to get back to Amici, though!

Amici did NOT disappoint. Sure I remember the decor... but it is tasteful, low key and elegant so I didn't feel that it was dated. From the moment we arrived until we left we were treated to superb, unobtrusive yet attentive service and a top notch dining experience. All three in our dinner party were thoroughly impressed by their dishes. From the pillow light gnocchi with a tenderloin garnish, the aqua cotta with such fresh and complimentary flavours, the perfectly prepared scallops to the perfectly grilled succulent veal chop the meal was delightful from beginning to end.

Evidently our waiter had overheard us talking about celebrating our birthdays and we were surprised with a complimentary tiramisu topped with a medley of fresh berries that was to die for.

The only thing that we could possibly mention as a criticism is that the white wine could have been chilled a little more.

I see many more visits to my old favourite in the near future. Well done Amici!

“Amici Restaurant Never Disappoints”
Reviewed March 24, 2011

Every time I'm in Winnipeg colleagues take me to Amici. And it always delivers great food and service! Broad menu, daily features, and all very interesting. Decent wine selections. Servers are VERY attentive. Portions are reasonable, if anything, tilt slightly to the generous. Quiet room, nice decor. This was the first time for lunch, though, and I was NOT disappointed. Enjoyed the salmon over spinach, side of veggies, and a salad. Merlot. And caught up with an old friend. Guess you can't ask for much better, especially since it was March and - remember, this is 'Winterpeg', the sidewalks were bare! Hardly a hint of snow.
