“Fantastic, Authentic & great service!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

A group of us visited Amici Restaurant last night, 2nd march, and we had a wonderfully authentic and tasty meal. The waiting staff were friendly and excellently attentive ensuring we had drinks and breads almost straight away. The new owner made us very welcome too, offering his recommendation for the specials etc. this really is the kind of service that larger chains miss out on! I had the Mussels to start which were so fresh, my girlfriend went for the mushrooms and our friends bruschetta and calamari. Our mains consisted of steaks in a wonderfully rich and creamy peppercorn sauce with sautéed veg, the meatballs with macaroni cheese (superb) and the crab linguini, again excellent! I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for proper cooking, a cosy & warm atmosphere and great staff!

“Great meal and wonderful staff”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Visited last Saturday night. Was lucky to get a table for two by booking late that morning.
Amici is a small restaurant that was full when we arrived; but from the moment we got there to when we left the staff were friendly and very attentive. We didn’t have to wait long for our shared starter. Then again before our main courses arrived (Smoked Salmon Tagliatelle & Macaroni topped meatballs). Both meals were generous in portion size & tasted delicious.
Dessert menu is a short & sweet, and the Lemon Ice cream with lemon liqueur finished our meal off wonderfully.
Overall we found Amici’s gave us excellent food and brilliant customer service. We will definitely return again.

“Delayed Valentine's celebration”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Too busy to go out on Valentine's Day. . .where could we book? Phoned Amici's on 13/2: "Could you extend your Valentine's Day menu to Friday 15th?" "Yes, we can do something for you" ...and they did. Service was excellent: the owner was on our case. He remembered the phone conversation, and took our order, served by an exceptionally helpful waitress, who was very attentive. Then, as our chocolate cake dessert was served, the owner asked how the meal had been. "Starter was a little peppery" confessed my wife. He asked us to remind them next time we came to ask for a little less pepper. We will! All in all, a special evening, enhanced by a well-coordinated and efficient team - and really lovely food. Thank you!

“Great find”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

On a miserable and wet evening in Bedford we were met with warmth and excellent food. The owner was rightly proud of his restaurant. Service was excellent and food delicious. Why on earth do punters bother to go to the chain restaurants over the road when a gem like Amici exists? We will be back.
