food was very good. Ambience
food was very good. Ambience is really non-existent, but food is worth the visit. Was very loud because of one loud group.

This was my first visit to
This was my first visit to Amici--a dinner stop before heading to the airport--but I'll be back the next time I'm in Boston. My wife and I shared a plate of fried calamari, which were fine: crispy on the outside and not rubbery, as calamari too often are. Then she had the sautéed scallops special, and I had veal marsala. Both mains were tasty. The dishes weren't adventurous, but if you're looking for traditional Italian-American comfort food, Amici is a good bet. There was a large family seated near us, and we saw that the waitresses were good with children.

If you're looking for good no nonsense Italian food near the TD Garden, go to Amici, great food, friendly and efficient service. Little loud, but still a terrific experience!

Been here a few times before TDGarden events. Food and service are great; not fancy but comfortable. Have brought my family (teenage daughters) and clients. Never had a bad meal.

Good spot before a game
Food was good, not great, fish and shrimp special well prepared, mixed veggies were non descript, mussels were ok, bruschetta was bread with oil and threw some tomatoes on top, not exciting at all.
Service was outstanding, no wait, and lots of checking in on us without being annoying.

Amici hidden Gem
Just around the corner from Salem and Hannover is a great little restaurant with great food, attentive staff, and great bang for your buck. Good for groups with a reservable downstairs.
Can't say enough about this place and hope they led the rebirth of this part of North Washington street.

Great spot B4 event at TD Garden
I researched restaurants near TD Garden when we were taking my daughter to a concert. Amici appeared and we looked into the restaurant for reviews. The reviews lived up to their honesty. This restaurant is small but very comfortable. We were given a window seat and the service was very personal. Everyone tried a different dish and they were all excellent. I had the shrimp, veal and chicken Amici, my husband had the veal Parmesan, while the teenagers enjoyed pollo Parmesan and lobster ravioli. Perfect portions, excellent Sangria -- I highly recommend this restaurant!

Amici was amazing. It was in a nice location on N. Washington St. but it was very private! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming! Perfect lighting! It was very comfortable. They staff was great! They were very friendly and treated us like family but they weren't intrusive! It made for a very relaxing and enjoyable evening! The owner even came and talked to us and she is the sweetest lady ever!! The food was very good!! I highly recommend Amici and I will definitely go back!!

awesome family-run gem!
My fiance and I went to Amici's Ristorante and had a beautiful time. The food was absolutely delicious and paired with the wine and staff, is definitely on our list of places to go back!

2nd. visit for us!!
This was our 2nd visit to Boston & to Amici. We were met by the owner, who is a wonderful and friendly woman. The cook was late in arriving, so they gave us bruschetta and drinks. When we ordered (about 45 min after arrival), we were served homestyle Italian food, which was delicious!! Because of the delay, they didn't charge us for the appetizer or dessert. We will return, not only because of the delicious food, but also because of the wonderful service and very friendly owner.

Another great dinner at Amici's!
This was just our latest visit to Amici and as usual it didn't disappoint. The service was great, the food fantastic and the price is always right. If you haven't tried Amici yet, you owe it to yourself to do so.

Great restaurant! We had reservatio
Great restaurant! We had reservations, walked right in and were seated right away. The food was delightful and we had two server's who were attentive to our needs. We went the night of a concert we were attending and had no problems. I am still dreaming of the pasta I had. This was our first visit and we will be back!

I can't speak enough about the continuing service we had at Amici. Tracy and her mom Maryann, continue to provide outstanding service and food in a family friendly atmosphere.

Although there were only 3 other parties in Amici, it was an awesome find with awesome food. So great that I even cancelled my reservation for a group of 8 at another Italian restaurant in the North End and made a reservation here!

Had a party of 12 to host in the city for the day. Amici had not only our big group, but also another 14-member group and did not have a problem hosting at all. Great service from the moment we came in. The homemade sangria was a stand out in the drink department. The food was all good, but the to-die-for dish was one of their specials that night: shrimp and scallop fettucine (home-made pasta) in a garlic cream sauce...ummm it was crazy good. Bravissimo!

The food was excellent, and
The food was excellent, and the portions were good. My party of four really liked the Ambience, and would eat at Amici's again. I would stay away from the wedge salad next time though. The price was not listed on the "Specials" menu and I know why. $12 for a 1/4 of head of lettuce, 4 slices of tomatoes and blue cheese dressing. I did not see that one coming. I had sticker shock when I saw $36 for 3 salads. (my 4th guest didn't order the salad). How much is a head of lettuce? Not even close to $48. Note to self: When there is no price on the menu item, ask!

Kudos ......Nice Job !!
Party of four we were seated promptly. We ordered a couple of appetizers and shared .....
Eggplant Rollatine and Brocolli Fritti both were delicious then on to a very nice ceasar salad which was lightly dressed - entrees were all fabulous Shrimp
Grand Marniere was just incredible, others ordered Chicken, ziti & brocolli with roasted garlic and oil just perfect not oily !!
Chicken Parmagiano was fantastic. ..Timing in between courses was nice you got that bit of time that allows you to truly enjoy your dinner. They were busy and we look forward to returning; thank you for a wonderful dining experience! Reservation was for 6:30.......concert was 8 P.M...we had time to leisurely walk to the Garden...could not have asked for for anything more!!

Real dining (as opposed to
Real dining (as opposed to pub fare) close to TD Garden great pre game, pre event location. Parking right across the street at Pinstripe Parking. The food and service were very good. "Traditional" North End fare very goodselection and excellent preparation. The mussel appetizer was outstanding with a great sauce. The linguine with clams was also excellent as was the veal marsala. Its small with an upstairs and downstairs dining room. Service was personable,the family is on site and on the job which makes it even more special. This will be my go to spot when heading to the Garden.
