A word from Amici Restaurant
Amici Restaurant strives to ensure that each and every one of our diners enjoys a memorable dining experience. A large number or our clientele are from all points in North America, dining here while in town on business. These and other clients return because they enjoy our creative meals and atmosphere. Our menu changes on a daily basis, yet we still serve some of our classics regularly. We also like to offer some more exotic dishes such as ostrich, wild boar, bison and venison for those who like to try something new each time they visit. The food is always fresh, ordered from around the world and through local suppliers who seek out the best local produce when it is in season. Our serving staff are careful to fulfill any dietary requests including helping patrons to avoid any foods to which they are allergic. We will also ensure a strict vegetarian meal, if requested. Amici Catering is also available for those who would like to enjoy our service

    Once again, everything about Amici dining was superb. The ambience is impossible to beat, the service as usual was outstanding, and the food, which is always very good, seemed to be even more deliciously prepared this time. An added bonus was receiving a complimentary desert to help us remember our anniversary. Overall, everything was perfect.

    We went to Amici's on a week night and the place was not busy at all. The service was very good, food was very good and the ambiance was great. It was a semi romantic evening for the two of us and we both really liked this restaurant. We will return. The staff were very friendly, very informative in suggesting a wine choice and a very good description of what the dishes were made up of.

    Although I forget our waiter's name he was incredible hands down one of the best waiters I've ever had! He was polite yet humorous! And his voice was amazingly soft and soothing to listen to! Food was very good and full of flavor. 5 meals and none of us left disappointed including desert! Ambiance was great, I wouldn't say romantic dinner for two ambiance but quiet and relaxing for a small to large group. Only draw back was the washrooms were on a lower level in a "different" restaurant. So unless I missed seeing an elevator very, difficult for a person with a disability to dine upstairs. This was also my first time here though so for all I know the lower restaurant serves all the same food just no view. I will go back!

    We tried Amici during Winnipeg Dining Week and had the prix fixe. Even then, the bill for 2 still added up with drinks. The a la carte menu is really too expensive for the quality of food in my opinion. I'm not sure if I will visit again given other options available.

    I had experienced Amici's food via catering at a few office events but had not yet dined at the restaurant. The service was exceptional as our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu items as well as the wine. They were very accommodating to requests and the food itself was perfection! I would highly recommend Amici's to anyone who wishes to have a fantastic dining experience.

    Our family enjoys fine dining and has sampled most of the best restaurants Winnipeg has to offer. Amici never lets us down. There were six in our party and everyone raved about their meal whether it was the salmon, guinea hens, beef, or seafood pasta. Their appetizers were also pleasing and they make their own super fresh salads including tearing theirown leaves (not found often enough in other places)! Leave room for dessert as there are lots of options for every palate.

    I noticed that on that Friday night, Amici and Bombolini had at least 70% of it's business from customers who were between 50 - 70 y.o Food: me and my wife had the 5 course set-menu Shrimps wrapped with porsciuto was not my best dish, and the polenta but filled my stomach from the first course. The salad was great, very good fresh mozza and grilled tomato. The Carpaccio was my least wow dish, but when the soup was added to the dish and cooked the carpaccio, I was disappointed. The lamb was great dish, we enjoyed it. The dessert was very good. Over all, very good food, I will come back to eat from a-la-carte menu as well. ..and the space for this review is very small if you want me to write about the whole experience! thank you

    The food was good enough, and the service was fantastic. The only drawback is the somewhat dated decor. Also, if you're there early in the evening, the sun that streams in through the west facing windows doesn't give much in the way of cozy or romantic ambiance. It was pretty empty when we arrived at 6:00 pm, but if you dine closer to 8:00 pm, the atmosphere is better- more cozy, more people around you. But we enjoyed ourselves.

    I've dined at Amici before, and there's a reason that we keep coming back. The decor may be slightly outdated, but it's never noticed because Amici is the type of restaurant that leaves you so happy to come back again and again. Service is flawless, meals are delightful, and the ever-changing specials are traditional, with a unique twist. It's perfect for a family special occasion like an anniversary or birthday. While it will never pull in the "hip" and "modern" crowd that frequent pop up restaurants and the bar scene, Amici's is steeped in tradition and excellence. It's a joy to visit every time.
