    The food and service were good and we liked the atmosphere. We were terribly disappointed in the lemon basil Panna cotta. I paid $6 for a tablespoon sized plop of custard. We make this dessert ourselves at home and were shocked at the price for such an insignificant portion.

    Interesting, tasty, and innovative presentation with every course. Dined here with my wife and nine-year-old daughter. The service was attentive and genuine. We wish we lived in Bryan/College Station so that we could eat at Amico Nave more often. We may have to schedule more frequent visits there so that we can enjoy this restaurant again!

    Amico just gets better. Server Rose is knowledgeable and accommodating. The menu is varied and we have found no weak spots. Preparation and presentation are very good. And the Monday evening wine special was an unexpected bonus.

    Amico Nave was recommended to me by a friend and it was wonderful. We celebrated my son's graduation from Texas A&M with a group of 7 and EVERYONE absolutely loved their meals. The rib eye was very flavorful and veal oscar to die for. The wine was complimentary and the service outstanding. So appreciative of Amico Nave.

    As a resident of College Station for nearly two decades, I've watched eagerly as the community clawed its way out of chain restaurant hell and truly great local dining experiences have begun to blossom. There may be no better exemplar of this restaurant revival than Amico Nave. Wonderful, well-crafted dishes, great service, and a nice wine selection culminate in a fine dining experience that only a couple of local restaurants had provided heretofore. Great for dates, for a business meeting, or for celebratory group dining. The farfalle pesto chicken is, perhaps, the best Italian dish in BCS. I wholeheartedly endorse Amico Nave to anyone looking for some exquisite local flavor.

    Amici Nave is an authentic Italian restaurant far above the typical chain restaurants. The food is sumptuous and the staff is very attentive. The extensive menus offers choices that will please anyone. Be sure to get the bruschetta starter. I can't say enough about our wonderful experience.

    This is a great destination for my family and I. The staff is wonderful and the service was surprisingly fast considering there were 16 to our party. Don't miss out on the bacon shrimp diablo! It's fantastic!! However, I have found that you can not go wrong with any of the Amico Nave food selections.

    Amico Nave has a plain but nice ambience, but the food is definitely 5 star. The Shrimp Diablo and Ribeye Blue Cheese pizza are two of our favorites. Don't miss their Caesar Salad. Pricey but definite worth it!

    My husband and I have been to Amico Nave twice now. Once for my birthday and once for our anniversary. Both times the food was excellent, the only down side is it can get loud. I did notice Saturday was louder than when we went on Friday. However, that will not stop me from going again.

    Graduated from TAMU this past Saturday, and placed a reservation for 8ppl a couple days ahead. This is one of the EXTREME few of the nicer restaurants that allows you to make a reservation (the main reason we decided to give it a go). It was delicious! I would highly recommend. Had the "seafood San Antonio" pasta and it was amazing, even the picky eater in our group liked it (he hates trying new food). Had the fried/baked mozzarella and calamari for appetizers, both were good. Extensive wine selection and our waitress was nice and polite, even with our large group. Would definitely recommend.

    AmicoNave is a special place to to and celebrate special occasions. The restaurant was full of Mom's Day celebrants as well as Aggie graduation parties. Your thought might be that it will take forever to get your order with all these people. Actually the service was superb and we did not have to wait very long for our order. As always, the food was wonderful. amocoNave is our special occasion place to go!

    I booked this for our 4th child's graduation from TAMU and it will never be forgotten. The food was great and portions big enough to fill the guys BUT our cute young red-haired male waiter gave us the best service I have ever had! He was attentive but not over familiar. He was patient and almost anticipated the needs of our VERY pregnant daughter and he made the occasion perfect. My only complaint is I would like this restaurant to become our local but as we live in Houston that would be difficult.

    This restaurant is absolutely delicious. I had to veal, and was pleasantly surprised with the tenderness of the meat. There was also a great drink menu, and the atmosphere was just lively enough to make it a great dining experience. This is a great restaurant to come with your family during special events. My parents have decided this is our new go-to restaurant while they are in College Station! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    Sitting right across the street from shipwrecked, Amico Nave is a Classy neighborhood restaurant with good style, terrific food, and, for now, not lined with college students. Marketing primarily to professionals and married couples, it was refreshing to escape the usual atmosphere of everything being catered to students. O ordered the Veal Oscar and was not disappointed. Honestly one of the best dishes I've had in Bryan/College Station.

    I went to Amico Nave for the first time this past Friday, and it was great! I just got engaged and made a reservation for me, my fiancée, and our families. Everything about the restaurant was wonderful: our waitress was nice and helpful, the food was delicious, and the ambiance was perfect. We say at a tall table in the middle of the dining room and had a wonderful evening. The only negative thing I have to say about the restaurant is that since it is small and rather intimate, it was a little loud, but nothing that would ruin the evening. We ended up staying last closing and nobody was in a hurry to get us out. Overall, Amico Nave was great and I would definitely dine there again.
