Coal for the Soul
Not your usual Nola Italian eatery walk in and seems like everyone knows each other. Owners are visable and engaging. The coal fired pizzas are tasty and imaginative "white clams" and a "rapini and sausage".
Calamari taste as if you ordered from a trattoria in Napoli.
Worth the visit.

The food was great, we had
The food was great, we had the pizza, chicken parm and eggplant rollotini.....my only critique was that the eggplant slices were really thin, and I would like them thicker so that I can taste the eggplant, other than that the food was great and we will definitely be back!!!!!

Glad to have in neighborhood!
My husband and I went with our 3-year-old. We split a Carni Italiane pizza and Penne alla Vodka pasta w/chicken and had plenty of leftovers. It was very good and my daughter also enjoyed watching the pizzas being made, especially when they'd toss the dough in the air. Even though I don't usually do desert, I was curious about the fried oreos I'd heard so much about - they were awesome, and I love the salted caramel gelato!
Our server was very good but another definitely looked upset and was mumbling under his breath. Most seemed to be doing a good job. The manager/owner(?) walked around checking on us and other diners regularly but was not intrusive.
We will definitely go back!

Great happy hour with half

New in the 'hood.
Service was impeccable and friendly without being obtrusive.
Portions were over generous - a lot of food waste. Serve less - charge less!
Noise level almost a reason not to return - the tin ceiling doesn't help.
Previous restaurants in this space had the same problem.

GOOD Food- LOUD atmosphere
Amici's food was really good, we ordered the shrimp/crab martini, and they had lot's of both; the chicken wings, not your run of the mill buffalo wings and they didnt come with ranch dressing, which I applaud. They are baked and lightly seasoned, very tasty.
Lastly we had a pizza, the one with the three meats, yum, yum. .I think the pizza's crust could have been cooked a little more but other than that it was pretty tasty. I must worn you though, it was SO LOUD i could barly hear my hubbys voice who was sitting just across from me. I would recommend going after 9pm, it started to clear out and was much, much more quiet. Although the waiter was vey nice the service was a bit slow.
We will be back :)

I Arrived about 30 minutes before my reservation and you could tell that everyone was getting ready for a busy night. Within the next 20 minutes, the restaurant filled up. After an initial hiccup of not asking if I needed a drink at the bar for about 5 minutes( bar was empty at time), everything else fell in line. We especially liked the Fried Oreos!! Definitely will be back

One of a Kind, in NO!!!
I introduced Amici to visiting friends this past friday night. Every aspect of our dinner was just right, from the way we were greeted through dessert. The menu offers an interesting array of authentic coal fired pizzas, salads, appetizers, pasta and coal oven roasted entrees. The food, service, atmosphere and specialty cocktails portray elevated professionalism with attention to detail. If your desire is pizza you'll enjoy full flavored crispy crust with premium ingredients. The pastas equal or better those i've ordered in the finest national restaurants; the veal chop is excellent. The fried oreo dessert with caramel gelato is a great finish. I could go on!
