We waited a half hour to be seated for our reservation and another hour for our food. They forget to put in the order. The wait staff never checked after we finally received our bland tasting meal if we needed anything else. Very disappointing meal.

Excited they are moving to a larger space as I hope it diffuses some of the sound. Always enjoy our nights out here as the food and service are consistently good, and the byob and food make it an excellent value.Though truth be told, they forgot the pears in my salad...but won’t hold it against them...much!

Although they have raised the menu prices a few dollars on everything; their food is still as delicious as always and their new prices are in line with almost every other Italian restaurant in the neighborhood. Both their meat and seafood dishes are of the highest quality and their sauces are first rate. The ambiance is nice, although it can get loud when it's crowded, and the service is always excellent.

Went there for my son’s birthday the Saturday after Valentine’s Day. Even with a reservation we waited a bit over an hour to be seated. Seating is tight and the noise level is a bit high; however, there was never a problem hearing each other. The major part of any dining experience is the food and Amici did not disappoint. We shared red hot Italian peppers and a cheese plate and that was the end of our talk about the wait. The chef sent us out a caprese and all was forgiven. The veal and chicken dishes were good but not exceptional. To be fair they were rather a generic order. Perhaps next time I will order a chef specialty. The good news is they will be moving into a bigger space soon. I think that alone will help some of the star ratings to increase.

We’ve been to Amici many times. The Caesar salad is wonderful. The fish specials were Dover Sole and halibut. 3 out of 4 had the sole and they were great as usual, and reasonably priced. The staff is amazing. We’ll be back again. Can’t wait till they move to the old La Campagne next door, but worried about what the noise level will be like there because it was always very high no matter what restaurant came in.

Food was very good. Service also very good
.But tables SO CLOSE the lady behind me was right up against me, and every time she moved her arms (often) she bumped my head and knocked my shoulders forward. The table next to us was approx. a foot away which made conversation awkward! The wait staff are like acrobats trying to find their way to tables. They deserve much praise!
Despite the obstacles would try again hopefully on a less busy nite.

Love it at Amici! We celebrate special occasions, friends gather there, and we love a date night there also.

Everything is always fresh and delicious!

Can’t wait to go back!
Our last celebration was in honor of our son’s college acceptances! 👍🏻

Great atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food! It was my second time there and I was extremely pleased. We were there for my girlfriend’s birthday and the servers made it special by bringing out a special dessert for her. I will definitely be back!!

My wife and I had another excellent meal at Amici. The sea bass special with shrimp was excellent. The fish was prepared perfectly and the 4 shrimp were very large. Starting off the meal was delicious bread. We ordered a second basket because it was so good. The service is always wonderful. The staff is very courteous and professional. It is always a pleasure dining at Amici.

Neighborhood gem. Very upscale decor but friendly down to earth staff. The food is consistently delicious with hearty portions and reasonable prices. They will be moving down the street in the near future. Hopefully nothing will change but the physical location.

Absolutely wonderful meal. We live in New York and we were visiting our in laws in Cherry Hill. The Dover sole was cooked to perfection and the lemon sauce was the perfect complement. The sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes were also a delight

Amici checks all the boxes. Wonderful ambiance as well as marvelously delicious food at reasonable prices. Their specials are always creative. I ordered their pasta special with scallops, large shrimp and crab which was excellent. Every meal is thoughtful and mouth-watering. The staff is so polite and helpful, it is always a pleasure to go there. I live in Haddonfield and Amici is far above their restaurants. Whenever we dine with our friends from Philadelphia (formerly Haddonfield), we always suggest Amici and the other night the 4 of us agreed, Amici is the best restaurant!!

It was obvious the very capable waiter was trying to move the table along. Service overbearing. Felt rushed. All meals were good and no complaints. Table was as requested on open table.

Second time eating here and the food is absolutely delicious. I had linguine and clams in white sauce that was the best I’ve had out! My friend enjoyed her meal of tagliatelle with shrimp, broccoli rabe in white sauce. Portions are perfect! I had a little leftover which was perfect for lunch. We dined on a Wednesday and it was quiet so that we could hear ourselves talk. My prior visit was a Saturday evening and the place was packed and very noisy but food was just as good.

Food was good, not great but good - but unfortunately, the restaurant for New Year's Eve crammed in as many tables that it could that even the wait staff couldn't move, and I was continually bumped into..... even with reservations we stood and waited for 10 minutes for our table.

Amici's made sure our New Years Eve Dinner went very well. Limited menu but still full of diverse selections and the food served hot and everything was fresh. Servers Attentive but not intrusive. Desserts enjoyed by all. Great family dinner experience.
