“Try the lasagna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

We just returned from an eating frenzy in Italy and want you to know that Amici Miei's lasagna comes pretty close to the super Italian cuisine.

“Surprisingly good pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Ordered a vegan pizza (basically no cheese). I had it with eggplant and red peppers. Usually when I order a vegan pizza, the dough is dry or they put too much tomato sauce to compensate. Amici Miei did a perfect job.
I wouldn't go out of my way to go there but if you're in the neighborhood, it's good value for money.

“Very disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been to Amici Miei on several occasions and each time it has been worse than the previous. The most recent occasion the food was mediocre at best and the service was not great either.

“Great ambiance and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

The food was terrific. I most noticed the waiters, hard working, attentive, and something I have never seen: they pool the tips, so three different waiters helped us. Team approach, terrific men enjoying their work. It feels like real hospitality, and everything we had was very very good. This is a well run establishment. One must wonder whether another restaurant could be opened nearer downtown Washington.

“Underappreciated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

While located in a non-descript strip center in the midst of the Mojave Desert-like Potomac/Cabin John and Rockville restaurant scene, this is a comfortable and consistent restaurant. The kitchen is solid, service is above average for the market and the menu changes enough to remain interesting. The wine list is reasonable and pairs nicely with the menu in terms of price and selection. There are few options nearby that are not either mediocre, loud, overcrowded and/or overpriced so having this little Italian joint nearby is much appreciated by my family and me.
