This is one of the very few restaurants in the entire DC area serving authentic Italian cuisine.
It may not be to the liking for those that prefer pasta with red sauce but the Rabbit and Suckling Pig are outstanding! Davids talents are underappreciated.He is a truly fine chef and Roberto in the front of the house is always a pleasure. My only regret is that I can't dine there more often!

This neighborhood restaurant has excellent food and very good service.
Although it could be a little pricey it's worth the trip.

This is serious Italian food in a place run by two serious restauranteurs. I feel lucky that, for us, its a close-by neighborhood hangout, so we heat here quite regularly. If you simply want some pasta with red sauce, look elsewhere. Amici Miei has been offering authentic Italian fare with a nice selection of wines for years. A few years ago made it was listed among Washingtonian's top 100. (How it got knocked off that list when other mediocre cheap-eats favorites remain, is beyond me.) They have wonderful bread and enticing appetizers that include italian meats and cheeses and seafood. Among eh entrees the home made ravioli filled with veal with mushrooms and veal broth reduction is always good. Try the pasta topped with a lamb or veal ragout, or the whole fresh branzino (sea bass). Arugula salad topped with olive oil, lemon and fresh whole sardines. Grilled fish, beef short ribs brasied in red wine, rack of lamb, and occasionally rabbit. And they do have a selection of wood-fired thin pizzas. Its alwyas a pleasure to eat here.

We have been eating at Amici Miei at least twice a month for four years. The food is amazing -- authentic Italian food. Most of the time we order one of the specials because they are new and intriguing and are always delicious! The monthly cooking class is always a special treat. Chef Davide demonstrates (you are welcome to participate) a 4-course meal. Afterwards you enjoy the 4 course meal paired with wine. What a delight! From the moment you walk in the door and are greated typically by Roberto's "BUONGIORNO", you feel welcome. The serivce provided by the firiendly, dedicated staff is attentive, but not intrusive. We look forward to our next visit, as soon as we walk out the door.

Service is good - the food is mediocre. If you're looking for great Italian food try somewhere else.
