This is a centrally located, mid-sized restaurant with buzzing atmosphere. There were a number of large groups dining, so it was a little noisy, but as I was alone, it did not disturb me and my book. Service was efficient and friendly.

I had Calamari Fritti to start and would probably have to say it was the best Calamari I have ever eaten. This was followed by a generous serving of pasta. I didn't manage to finish mine. Drinks were reasonably priced and people seemed to be enjoying themselves.

If you are looking for an Italian restaurant in Torquay then Amici is worth considering.

Very busy popular restaurant, freshly cooked food, service was efficient and staff were pleasant.a good choice of food on the menu all dishes authentically cooked.Portions were quite large and it would have been difficult to eat three courses, definitely not for the waist watchers.

We've just returned from a great weekend in Torquay & after reading some of the positive reviews on Tripadvisor, decided to give Amici's a try on Saturday evening.

The restaurant is in a good location right on the corner of a busy street - also looks appealing from the outside. Starter was good - we had a sharing platter for two. Main courses were bland though; we both had chicken dishes, one with a tomato sauce & the other mushroom, but the food tasted "microwaved" - just a cooked chicken portion covered in sauce. We were disappointed with the vegetables we had as well - an Italian restaurant shouldn't serve frozen fried chips with a meat course. Again, the potatoes I had with my main tasted re-heated. We've visited many Italian restaurants over the years and we felt the food was overpriced and not very authentic. On a positive note, the restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are very pleasant.

Went to Amici's today for the first time it will definitely not be the last. Great food, good service and it does not break the bank. Excellent especially in the sunshine!
