Diner Reviews
  • "Compared to previous visits, the food was somewhat "off. " I had the pasta "special" that was positively tasteless."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "First two wines choices - sorry don't have it. Wine was warm (no one serves red wine warm) - poor wine storage. Eggplant Parmesan overcooked. The tricolor salad was good as was the spinach. Risotto was salty. Lobster in entree was good - spaghetti overcooked. Had table by San Vicente window which was. At least the prices are more or less reasonable for what you get. Nice waiter from Rome."

  • "Ameci is a very good Italian restaurant on the Santa Monica - Brentwood border. At our last visit, the service was very friendly, if somewhat slow (even for a Saturday night). We look forward to going back there again soon."

  • "The wine selection is very notable. It's too bad a glass of premium wine costs over $20/glass. However, the good thing is that you can order half a glass of wine at a reasonable price. The food was excellent, a bit pricey but nonetheless delicious. Valet parking is mandatory if you park in their lot. Fortunately, we were able to park near the restaurant. The Calamari appetizer was very sizeable - enough to share with 4-5 persons. The carrot soup was so smooth and tasty. I was also able to order half a bowl of soup. I have to say the establishment is very customer accomodating. The service is impeccable."

  • "Over it was pretty good. The service definitely made up for the food. I ordered Chicken Fetuccini Alfredo w/ broccoli and it was pretty bland not much flavor and the sauce was dried up into the pasta. My girl had some steak with arugula and for some reason had bbq sauce as dressing. It tasted a little odd and the bbq sauce on the arugula was pretty random and the meat was pretty dry. The wine was very good as we had a bottle and the service was great they were constantly coming by to make sure we were good but not too much where it got bothersome. Also shouldn't have to pay for parking at a restaurant that has its own parking unless its valet but decided to park myself. Price of dining was very reasonable only $100 + $20 tip."

  • "I couldn't make up my mind so I ordered the GF margarita pizza, gf spaghetti ala checca, and the Dover sole. It was all perfect. I shared the pizza with the rest of the people at my table and evn though they are not gluten free they all thought the pizza was fabulous!"

  • "Wonderful tomato soup but it was not hot-merely tepid. That was very disappointing."

  • "I ordered the special T bone, having not had one in years, and it was terrific as was the artichoke salad and coconut ice cream (not served together!). Lovely evening. Noise can vary at this place, it can be loud if super busy but it was moderate that night."

  • "I had just come back from two weeks in Italy and was craving good pizza and pasta. This was perfect for my cravings. I was pleasantly surprised that they not only had GF penne but spaghetti as well. My daughter who is not GF ate my leftovers and thought the pasta was amazing also.."

  • "Very good authentic Italian food at Amici...particularly good for lunch. Warm, inviting atmosphere, conveniently located between Brentwood and SM at corner of 26th and San Vicente. Meal begins with excellent bread and delicious hummus, as well as fresh bruschetta dip, and cookies with chocolate dip are provided on a complimentary basis at the end of your meal. Service is always warm, friendly and helpful. Their salads are excellent, and my favorite dish is their Tagliata (steak salad)...just outstanding! Worth a visit...very good pizzas, pastas and desserts!"

  • "When we lived in Brentwood, this was our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Four years now since moving to San Diego, we always visit Amici when we take a trip to L.A. Thanks for being on Open Table - it makes it so easy!"

  • "Amici is one of my favorite places to dine anywhere in LA. The food is always authentic and the atmosphere inviting. Whether I am dining with a friend, or my entire family, it fits the bill. Standout dishes include eggplant parmesan, branzino and brodetto (fish soup like Bouillabaise)."

  • "Good bread and delicious hummas starts the meal and cookies with chocolate dip are provided on a complimentary basis at the end of your meal. In between, the artichoke salad was excellent, pasta good and the chicken parmesian was ok. The atmosphere is pleasant. The waiter was caring, but we had to ask for pepper, parmesian cheese and he forgot my friend's diet coke until we reminded him. His personality and willingness to comply made up for mistakes that should not occur in a good restaurant. We would certainly go back."
