“best steak ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

On our weekend away, my husband and I were looking for an Italian restaurant near our resort and came across with this restaurant. It was Saturday night and the restaurant was full but luckily they had 1 table available for us. It was very noisy as there were lots of people so we thought about leaving. I’m so glad that we didn’t.
I felt like to have a steak so I ordered the only steak from the menu, with side salad. The steak came out really big portion (scotch fillet) with chili sauce & mashed potato and veggies. The sauce was so amazing with the steak and the steak was cooked to perfection. And it was under $30! My husband, who is a big meat eater, was so jealous of my dish and he ate half of mine even after he finished his pizza – he said the pizza was okay but I guess the steak was too good to compare! I’ve been thinking about this dish since then and I just wish I lived close by!
The service was very good, and the house wine was nice as well. The only disappointment we had was the dessert – especially the crème brulee was lack of flavour and I could not eat more than 2 spoons – but it came out very pretty.
I would definitely go to this restaurant again!

“Good solid italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

A party of 5 of us went for a Sunday night meal. The place was booked out but they did their best to accommodate us and squeeze us in. The food is typical australian italian food but done very well. I had the seafood marinara which was excellent, simple but cooked well. The people in our group had veal and other pastas which all went down very well. Although we didn't eat pizzas, the special they had going, $18 for a jumbo, seemed to represent excellent value. The service was generally ok, nothing out of this world though. As I've already mentioned, the food here is very good Australia Italian but doesn't compare to truly authentic Italian that you might get in a big city or Italy. Still, it's very good and I would return here again.

“Good food, good wine and fantastic service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Previous review says it all. 'Simply good food and service'. Finally found a lovely place for a meal. The food was good but funnily enough it is the great service which lingers with me. I can't remember the last time i have felt so welcomed and been so well looked after by staff. Congratulations Amici Cafe.

“Don't hesitate best in Caloundra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

As good as it gets out of the city . Great staff in fact excellent. Try the spaghetti marinara and the Oreo cheesecake spectacular. Make sure you book it's full in holiday time. When your on holidays struggling to find a decent restaurant it's a relief to find a great Italian with thin crust pizza excellent home made spaghetti with garlic and a touch of chilli and great meat dishes. Well done
