    I went to Amici's to have a night out with my wife. I am glad we went there because we were able to eat and talk and the servers weren't pushing us out the door. The food was AWESOME! I'll definitely be back!

    Amici is like dinning in the city without parking problems. We love them for "Special" occasions large or small, even through there is limited seating due to the size.

    The food was delicious both to the eye and palate. Service was very good except that when the main course dishes had been removed we were obliged to signal our waiter to order dessert. Especially enjoyable was the guitarist; unfortunately she was difficult to hear because of the noise level.

    This is the 2nd time we have dined at Amicis. As before, the food offered was delicious. The food is presented nicely. The only 2 things I was unhappy about were we were stuck in a back corner (they said there were no tables for 4 available in the main dining area) even though I had made a reservation. Also the restaurant was overly warm. They did supply us with a fan but that did not help much.

    It was nice to see Amici busy on a week night during the summer. Despite how busy it is, we are always welcomed by everyone on staff. We didn't do dinners this time we share appetizers. The always tender calamari never disappoints us. The roasted beet and arugula salad was very tasty with a light dressing and shaved cheese. Eggplant Melanzane was tender, the Antipasti was a nice selection of meats and cheeses to compliment the fresh bread on the table. The mushroom risotto is a perfect blend of 4 types mushrooms that compliment the wonderfully al dente yet creamy rice. The food is so consistently good we tend to forget how good it is. It is the closet we have found to eating in Italy on this side of the Atlantic.

    The owners of Amici treat you like guests in their home, which, along with consistently delicious food at very reasonable prices, keeps us coming back. They are warm and gracious- something harder to find in restaurants these days. They always make you feel welcome. All of the food is fresh and delicious, from the basic to the more 'gourmet.' Love it!

    Each time I go to Amici's, I enjoy myself very much. The service is outstanding and the food is great! My husband especially loves their Amici salad. I love their bread and have had fish, chicken, and pasta dishes which were very generous. This truly is one of my go to places for lunch and dinner.

    We've eaten at Amici several times, and it has never disappointed us. The house-made pasta is delicious. The last time we were there, my husband praised the veal as the thinnest, tenderest he'd ever eaten.

    i"ve been there for dinner 3 times and each time the food and service was OUTSTANDING. I did not know what to expect and quite frankly wasn't expecting much but was totally WOW's by the food. i"m more about the food than the ambiance so so given the price and quality of food, it was like a Philly restaurant quality.

    We dine here frequently and have never been disappointed. This is one of those Eastern European to Italy to US stories and along the way, they learned to cook brilliantly. There are an array of items, I think we have tried most, and all have been delicious. It is a family oriented restaurant and the staff shall make you feel that way too.

    dining at Amici, and overall a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly and the food was good. Salads were LARGE -especially the Amici one. Next time we would share. Entree portions were such that we did not need to take anything home - which I appreciate. I especially enjoyed the veggies that came with my entree. The only criticism? The tomato sauce on one of the pasta entrees was a bit bland.

    This restaurant can be summed up quite simply - very good Italian food (not the absolute best though) for the reasonable cost. It was crowded on Saturday night and we waited over 30 minutes beyond our 7:45pm reservation. However, when we were finally seated, the restaurant gave us compimentary appetizers without our even requesting them. This was a professional gesture and demonstrated to our party of 4 that the management was sincere in their efforts to provide a quality dining experience. The prices are reasonable throughout the menu relative to the high quality of the food, and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a good Italian restaurant.

    This is a wonderful, quite reasonably priced, white-tablecloth kind of upscale Italian restaurant. My bronzini was delicious, perfectly seasoned, sauced, and presented. I recommend the Amici salad-- only ~$5-6, very generous, with pear slices, goat cheese, and other wonderful additions. The entrees came with perfectly cooked & seasoned vegetables. We were a four-some, had some catching up to do, and they made us feel comfortable staying for quite a while after dinner slowly sipping decaff tea and espresso's, sharing one dessert with 4 forks. And it's BYO, a great savings! If you can call ahead for a reservation, do so--- they fill up quickly.

    Even though it was a packed night due to Valentine's Day, everything was very good. The prefix menu was delicious, but I was looking forward to their normal menu. The only annoying part is that it we had to wait for our table even though we had a reservation. Will definitely keep it on the list to try again when their regular menu is available
