AMICI restaurant has moved up the street on Kresson Road to a beautifully restored farmhouse location. Even the restrooms are beautifully tiled! The
menu remains the same. My friend and I ordered the lunch special. She was disappointed that the Bolognese sauced pasta was unavailable because it was still cooking. Sad for her...but I took it as a sign of home made freshness. She chose a Bianca salad featuring hearts of palm and endive with a huge side order of linguine.
My amici salad was delicious with pears and Gorgonzola cheese which complemented the chicken Lemonie.. two pieces with veggies and potatoes. Enough for another meal!
This is one of my favorite restaurants. Can't wait to have dinner in the new huge outdoor room or the garden in the Fall. Best of Luck to the whole staff in the new venture.

Amici's are in their new location. Our dinners were delicious. Both cooked to the right temperature. Service was great. And dessert was house-made Tartufo yum!!

We waited a hour and a half and walked out. My granddaughter spilled her water and no one came to clean it up, my daughter who was a guest cleaned up the spilled water. And last but not least, the hostess chased us out in the parking lot to inform us our food was coming out. We asked the waiter a couple of times about the delay and he never gave us a answer

First time in new spot next door. Very nice inside. They admitted to being a bit short staffed, but they worked hard as a team to make everyone happy. I give them credit. Thank you for that. Will be back again

What a find. Everything was great. Two in our party had the pasta trio special, it was delicious. One had the veal and he said it was the best he had in years. Dessert was wonderful. The waitstaff could not have been better. We cannot wait to go back.

Best $30 Strip Steak you’ll ever find (with a delicious wine sauce accompanying, to boot.)! Comparison worthy to a $60 version at a pricey “high-end” steak restaurant.

EXCELLENT food - one of the better restaurants in the area. The food is fairly priced (specials are a bit high we thought, but food was very very good). Incredible service. We will be back for sure- cannot believe we have never been here before.

Only complaint was the delay in obtaining waiter service and order. Most likely due to being short handed.

We made a reservation for outdoor seating for my husbands birthday. Arrived on time and checked in with the hostess. She asked for a minute to set up our table. After about 5 minutes, I went inside and asked for an update and she shared that she had gotten side tracked and forgotten at which point she set the table. After several minutes, someone stopped over with water. But after a much longer delay and having to ask another server for assistance, our server came over. He didn’t cover the specials until prompted. Half hour after our reservation time, we ordered. Meantime, our waters had run out and no bread had been brought to the table . Eventually, bread and our appetizers came out which were so-so. After another 20-30 minutes, another server cleared our plates but we had to ask for water. Once our meals came out (nearly 1.5 hours after our reservation time), the food was ok (some better than other) but took several more minutes before he returned with parm cheese and red pepper. I noted that there was no crab on my plate per the menu description at which point he shared that they were out of crab so they “threw extra shrimp on the plate”. I noted that he should have shared that ahead of time as I would have ordered something else - at which point, while he did apologize, it was a lot of excuses. Ultimately, we will not return. While I’ve heard great things about this place and perhaps it was a fluke but there are Too many amazing Italian restaurants nearby to deal with poor service. My suggestion: don’t proactively offer outdoor seating if you’re not staffed to handle it. It was a gorgeous night out so it should have been expected.

We had a wonderful meal last night at Amici with friends. We sat on the outdoor patio and everything we ate was delicious. There was a good selection of cheeses on the International Cheese Plate. The Longhots with Prosciutto was melt in the mouth good with just a little heat to the peppers. The Amici Salad, the Caesar Salad with shrimp, and the Mediterranean Salad were all so fresh. For mains, we had the grouper, the bronzino, the Shrimp Diablo with cappellini, and the Pasta Primavera. Everyone loved their meal and the seafood was all fresh. It didn't end there as of course we had to sample the dessert and the Rum Cake and the Gelato did not disappoint. They also had Decaf espresso and Decaf Cappuccino which was awesome. The servers were super nice and even took a few photos for us. Lots of options for vegetarians as well. They do only take a max of 2 credit cards so be prepared with cash or Venmo your friends if you have more cards. We'll definitely be back as we had such a wonderful evening!

While my request to sit outdoors was honored, we were stuck at the very end of the tent, facing the dark alley which connects to the parking lot.... trash and stacked chairs were abundantly in view. People coming and going, from and to the parking lot, made for quite the distraction.

The menu is fabulous with many, many choices.....if only the quality of the food matched. I had the penne w/salmon in a vodka sauce and it was chunks of salmon and overdone pasta. My dinner partners felt the same about their selection. The chicken parm was dried out and the marinara sauce was a burgundy color....how overdone it was. My husband ALWAYS finishes his plate and left much of it uneaten.

I would also like to note that our waiter was most INATTENTIVE to our table. Our salad plates were not cleared prior to our entrees arriving and it was fine with our waiter that WE stacked the plates to be cleared. My husband asked for water and after waiting a ridiculous amount of time, he got up, went over to the table with the pitcher on it to refill all of our glasses, only to find it empty. I do believe the 2nd ginger ale he ordered, never appeared.

This restaurant has the potential to be a neighborhood gem if it would reiterate to their people that the customer is important and should be treated well.
We will not be returning.

It was our first time dining at Amici. The room was quite crowded on a Saturday night. Although the restaurant was busy the wait staff were attentive and knowledgeable and friendly. The food from appetizers to desserts was delicious. We will definitely put Amici in our dining out rotation.

Our waiter was very professional and attentive to our table. Absolutely loved the pasta and fish entrees that we chose and it was wonderful to be able to bring our own wine which was opened for us as soon as we placed the bottle on the table. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience!!

Celebrated a low key anniversary dinner at Amici Restaurant. We were promptly seated
and our wine was served immediately. Yummy bread arrived before our Caesar and Amici Salads. Both salads were cold and crispy. My husband enjoyed his homemade lobster ravioli with crabmeat...emptying his plate. My order of the special fettucine with seafood...shrimp and crab with a white sauce and grape tomatoes was huge; certainly enough for two meals. A slice of cheesecake to share with some freshly brewed coffe topped off an excellent meal which was very fairly priced. One of our favorite dining spots!
