WELCOME TO AMICI RESTAURANT & EVENTS BYOB

Our menu is compromised of dishes that represent every region of Italy – from Abruzzo to Tuscany. While many Italian restaurants specialize in one type of cuisine, our kitchen knows no limits and sources the finest seasonal ingredients available. While we are known for our seafood, pasta, and steak staples; Amici also creates seasonal specials and rotates our menu every 6 months to keep the options fresh and exciting.
Join us in our dining room or year-round private patio space to indulge in the rich culinary history of Italy. For those special events in your life, we also offer private dining events, off-site catering, and our newly opened banquet Bella Festa, located at 306 Kresson Rd. in Cherry Hill, NJ.

Food was excellent. I had clams in red sauce, my wife had mussels in white sauce. Both were really good. We both had the veal osso bucco for dinner. Fantastic.

I have been taking my Dad to Amici's for years...it's his favorite restaurant...We have watched their ups and downs with this pandemic and I am happy to say that we were thrilled with the new restaurant location. The available dining space and menu have nicely expanded. However, the parking is atrocious, as there simply isn't enough! While Amici has tried to accommodate with valet parking, not everyone is happy giving up their car keys and waiting, even if it is free to soften the wait time. This was made even worse with all the dinner pickups from regular customers and delivery apps. Is is possible for at least make another area for pickups to make the bottle neck better? Inside there was no longer any music and very loud, making it hard to talk. Amici's has served consistently good food with BYOY, and we welcome such a nice restaurant so close to home. I will be back again to checkup on Amici's progress!

We pass this restaurant often and it seems crowded so we decided to go on a Thursday evening. The atmosphere, food and service was more then we expected. We will now add it to one of regular places to dine. I recommend making a reservation.

Very good service, pleasant dining room, food delicious
Dessert very very good
Coffee, not hot enough only mildly warm. Had a second cup, still not hot.
My other disappointment, when I asked for a second cup of coffee, the waiter did not take my cup snd saucer. Only took the cup, I would have preferred they replenish the coffee with A carafe.

We were delighted with our first visit to Amici. The staff was very attentive and prompt. There was a pleasant ambience, with white tablecloths and dimmed lighting. The food was extraordinary, both the lobster ravioli and the porcini spaghetti. The "house" salad was far beyond expectation, with the perfect combination of ingredients. And everything was reasonably priced. We look forward to our next visit.

The food was great. But the service could have been a bit better; we waited longer for our dessert than for our dinners! I know every restaurant is short handed during these trying times,,,,but when you say I'll be right back with the dessert - twice - you should have someone bring it out - especially since our coffee was empty and there were no refills. Noise level is at times unbearable.....lots of people all crammed into the place.

Food was underwhelming- shrimp scampi very salty.
The Filet mignon was good.
Service was extremely slow. We waited a long time to order, receive our meal and final check.

Very busy but reserved table was ready when we got there. They ran out of the entrees 2 of the 4 people wanted to order. Everyone was happy with their appetizers and3 out of four people like the main course they ultimately ordered. The desserts were not good.

We found the rack of lamb special that 3 people ordered was very bland and tough. The appetizers were very good as well as the desert. The noise level in main dining area was extremely loud and hard to talk. We elected to eat in the outdoor area that was heated and closed in to be very delightful. The service was very good. We have eaten here many times and found that it really depends on what is ordered as some dishes are not as well prepared as others.

This was our first visit in their new location; the modifications to the building did not provide for any privacy, tables very close together and the restaurant was extremely loud. The service was not great in that our finished salad plates sat in front of us until such time our meal was served and the servers had to scramble with how to handle the salad plates.The meal server also removed my bread plate with bread waiting for me to enjoy with my meal, so I had to request additional bread (only wanted the small piece that remained on my now removed bread plate). No one came to ask if we had any issues with our meal; fortunately, we did not as the meal was delicious. Don't know that we will return, since the experience was less than what we anticipated...hardly able to have a nice conversation at all. Their previous location was much nicer and far more elegant.

We made an 8pm reservation and waited an hour to be seated. The food was not worth waiting that long for. They overbook and do not even apologize for it. The hostess kept saying the wait is another 10 minutes and then just kept trying to push eating on the outside patio for a shorter wait. The veal was a little rubbery. The steak special was very good though. Will probably not come back since there are so many excellent Italian restaurants in the area that know how to make a reservation and then KEEP a reservation with better quality food.

Check in is so chaotic, load, crowded. They gotta fix this! The young girl at the desk kept her composure and was lovely though even though we were seated at 0705 for a 645 reservation. Noise level is high- food is high quality prepared perfectly which explains the noise, the crowds, the wait! My shrimp was covered in garlic and wasn’t last time which personally I don’t enjoy. My friends loved theirs and ate every bite. Although service at the beginnings of the night was great; at the end, we were flagging staff down with the restaurant now 1/4 full. That’s a shame cuz it’s the final impression.

The noise level was way too loud. We were yelling at each other to be heard. The food was okay. Service was not good. Waiter did a lot of grunting at us and then ignored us. We will go back to give it another try. This place has potential and hoping we just hit a bad night with the wait staff.

very busy at prime dining hours! with reservation we still had to wait outside for the table almost 25 minutes, once sat, it took another 10 minutes for waiter to approach us… the noise level was very loud and made our conversations difficult! food is very good but the noise level and crowded aspect turned us off! maybe the outdoor area is better!
