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

    I take my friend there each year (as she also does for me) for our birthdays. We always received very attentive service and the pasta dish I always order is the best I've ever had and I've eaten at many Italian restaurants. The atmosphere is elegant as well as very comfortable (we love our table #32). Every year my friend and I try to think of another restaurant to celebrate our birthdays for a change but we can't think of one and happily go back to our tried and true.

    My wife & I dined at Amici on Tues 30 Sept 2014. We had the 5-course meal Groupon. The food was excellent! We really enjoyed it all! More of the reason for my email is to say what amazing service we had. Rawle was our server. He was attentive, friendly, courteous and a down-right nice gentleman. From the moment he talked with us at the front desk, to seating us, to taking our order, he was just excellent. We haven't had such good service from a server in quite some time, so I wanted to be sure to pass on these words. Please be sure to let Rawle know, his expertise has definitely encouraged us to visit Amici again in the future - and we hope he'll be our server next time!

    We had a 5 course meal including: 1) Prosciutto-wrapped shrimp with wild mushrooms on soft polenta 2) Carpaccio-vegetable-barley soup 3) Oven-dried tomatoes with buffalo mozzarella and crisp pancetta rings topped with arugula greens and aged balsamic vinegar 4) Double-boned lamb chop served with roasted-garlic-potato puree and pecan pesto 5) Warm pear tart with rum-and-raisin ice cream Though I typically prefer seafood & chicken over red meat, the lamb chop was amazing! All of the food was delicious and beautifully presented. It was a wonderful meal and extraordinary service! We will definitely be back and highly recommend it to anyone!

    There was definitely an attitude about being Groupon customers. We have dined here at least twice a year and have always had exemplary service. When we presented our coupon there was a chill! If these people feel they are better than groupon they should not have offered a coupon!

    Food service and ambiance was excellent, only beef (no pun intended) I would have is that my appetizer of shrimp and my main of lamb chops had the exact same beef jus, more like a gravy though, it was tasty but didn't fit with either dish especially the shrimp, might have been better with a butter, lemon, wine sauce, for the lamb I would have preferred more of a jus, not gravy texture. My wife had gnocchi with Italian sausage, again very tasty, sauce was excellent, dessert was lovely tiramisu. Would go back. Very quiet which was nice but it was a Monday

    Wonderful food, very good service and a very pretty place. I found it rather loud at the beginning of our meal (we came in at 8:30 on a Friday) but it quieted down through the night, that was probably just due to several large tables being seated near us. Our waiter was amazing and entertaining and I really enjoyed the meal and had lots of fun!

    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.
