    We were somewhat disappointed. I thought that this restaurant was affiliated with Du Amici in Cinnaminson. It may be, but if so it doesn't hold a candle to the other restaurant. The food was good but the service was awful. We got the wrong appetizer, waited a long time for our food, and were not at all impressed by the wait staff. We wouldn't be in a rush to go back.

    Amici has been a local hot spot the past few years and used to have great service and food. We had a poor experience this week. Possibly due to it being a 'restaurant week' of sorts but that's no excuse. The staff neglected our table and it took us forever to order and longer to get our food. It was fairly empty when we arrived but many people who arrived after us left way before us. We did not want to spend 3 hours in a restaurant for dinner on a weeknight but absolutely could not get the staff to serve us or bring the check. The food did not have the flavor we have come to enjoy there - it all tasted very bland. We were frustrated and very disappointed. Not sure if we will return now.

    We decided to give Amici a try based on some reviews posted here and were not disappointed! The service was very good although it was very loud in the packed main dining hall. If it is just two or four of you I would request to be seated on the "quiet" side of the restaurant. The food was very fresh, hot when it arrived at the table, and everything was spaced out nicely so you didn't feel rushed. Definitely going back!!

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My Husband and I both ordered New York strips steaks. Large portions, that were cooked to perfection. Just the right amount of seasoning. We have been to Capital Grill on several occasions, they just do not compare. (Especially when you compare prices.) We split a Caesar salad. Their salads in my opinion are big enough for 2. Cant forget their bread, it simply is just the best. Must have reservations on a Saturday night. In October they are coming up on their second year.

    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.
