Great experience for birthday celebration. Food was delicious. The oysters went well with the spinach and goat cheese. Wish there had been 6 instead of 5. The veal Oscar is a must with a lushes artichoke cream sauce. Shrimp and grits was good. Veal Marsala had a nice sauce. Tougher than normal. Very personable manager and waiter. Will be coming back.

Excellent food, great atmosphere. For ones who have a desire for the best taste then order from their veal selections. Veal Oscar for above and beyond flavor, or Veal Marsala for incredible taste and great side pasta for flavorful balance.

It was the first time which I had been there. I have heard about the place since it opened, and the fact that it is owned by the same people as Shipwreck made it more attractive.

We were pleased with our experience.

Overall it was wonderful only a few complaints when making a kids dish they shouldn't top plates with spicy seasonings, their lemonade is a bit tart and no gluten free dessert options, otherwise food tasted wonderful.

We had dinner here on our 50th anniversary! The food was delicious. The service was superb,
the staff gracious and helpful. We were not disappointed and would return again if ever in the area. A complimentary dessert of our choice was a dear touch too. Thank you.

Very much enjoyed the food; the veal was excellent and the sauces very good. The only drawback was that the building used to be something else and while adapted well still carried some of the seasoning from whatever it used to be. Service was good, and the prices were equitable...moderate for the food but a bit high for drinks.

The food was outstanding, and the restaurant's atmosphere was appropriate.
Our server appeared distracted, and could use a little more training- she spilled water on the table and forgot to come back to clean it up. When she served the wine, she didn't let us sample it before she poured it, and poured a glass for my husband and I, despite the fact that my husband was still drinking his cocktail.
What appeared to be the owner's wife, was very loud in her conversations with specific tables, which was a little off putting.

We found this restaurant through Yelp and it had good reviews. We needed a place to host my grandson's high school graduation and we are from out of town. This is a true hidden gem and we would readily go back there anytime we are in the area. We had three appetizers and they were all excellent and good portions. I need some advice on the wine list and the owner came over and helped us (great bottle by the way). Everyone enjoyed their meal and were very positive about how great the food was.

We had another fulfilling trip to Amico Nave. Once again we were reminded that you get a lot of food for your money. We had two salads and two entrees, and both of us "had" to take food home. My lasagna was as good as I have ever had, and my wife loved her salmon. Unfortunately, there was no way we could try a dessert.
We will definitely be back.

When I go to a restaurant, I assume the food will be full of flavor and well made. I enjoy pasta quite a bit, but I'm also picky about my pasta when I'm paying $15+ for a bowl. At Amico Nave, I ordered the Bucatini but, unfortunately, not only did it give me a stomach ache, I also thought it tasted like cafeteria spaghetti. I was expecting a restaurant with a nearly 5 star rating to have quality pasta.

We were really impressed! They've found that happy medium where both the casual diner and people who are celebrating something special can both feel comfortable. The wine list had selections for a wide palate while the menu had a good mix of classic Italian fare and modern takes on old favorites. My date and I were really happy with our decision to dine there and both remarked how we could see this as a regular spot after work for a glass of wine and appetizers.

After doing various online searches and reading numerous reviews, I made a dinner reservation after my son's graduation at Texas A&M University for a party of 8 at Amico Nave Ristorante. The graduation ceremony ended sooner than expected so we arrived quite early to the restaurant as a result. The hostess was accommodating anyway and seated us at a nice table almost immediately. I am sorry for not remembering her name, but our red-headed waitress was great too. She was very attentive but not pushy and paced everything appropriately. Our food was served correctly and in a timely manner, plus it was hot and tasted delicious! In the end, everyone thought this was the perfect choice for dinner!

I was the first customer to this restaurant and have enjoyed it immensely over the years. Great place to go for a special occasion or to take visitors to the city. In addition to great food in the restaurant, their catering business has been extremely successful. They provide catering to several of the civic groups I belong to and the food is always excellent.

The restaurant was clean and kept up. Ambiance was great, not too loud so we were able to talk easily. Our waitress did a great job of handling the balance of over-attentive to not attentive enough. The calamari didn't have much flavor but our dinner entrees were delicious. We were there to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed in our choice. We will return.
