We always visit this restaurant when in Kalamaki, it’s nice to have a change from the Greek food as I find it can get a tad rich after a while.

The food is always of a reasonable standard, although the boss always seems a little harassed and we have heard him telling off his staff before.

On this occasion, I had the bruschetta with Parma ham and rocket to start. There was very little rocket involved in the making of this starter – it was covered in basil (which I’m not a fan of)

For main course I had one of the pasta dishes with prawns, which was tasty, but no better than a pasta dish you would get in one of the chain restaurants in the UK.

One of the best Italian restaurants we have visited. We ate here on four occasions as the food was excellent. On our last night the owner gave us half litre of white wine on the house. He also presented us with a bottle of extra virgin oil to take home with us. We would certainly recommend this restuarant to anyone visiting Kalamaki.

We ate here on a number of occasions and the food and service were both consistently incredible The Chicken Livers starter was awesome, and after having Fillet steak at a few other "good restaurents" there was nowhere that even came close to the quality provided by Buon Amici. My wife is a huge fan of the owners homemade white wine and other friends of ours that also ate there raved about his homemade red wine.Very well priced for such an excellent venue.

Such good food, plenty of it and didn't have to pay for kids which is a big bonus. Worth a visit as it is not bad price. Didn't have bread brought to table which u have to pay for in other restaurants.
