Amis brings the quintessential Roman-style trattoria to Philadelphia's Washington Square West neighborhood. Opened in 2010, amis trattoria has cemented its place as one of the city's premier dining destinations, garnering high praise from such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer (three-out-of-four-bells) and Bon Appetit magazine ("Top 10 Places for Pasta in the U.S."), and from the crowds of regular guests who pack its dining room nightly for dinner and weekends for brunch. Lively, comfortable and convivial, dining at amis is perfect for a variety of occasions, boasting a share-plates menu of house-made pasta, salumi, farm-fresh meats and peak seasonal vegetable dishes, perfect for sharing while celebrating with friends and family, or a meal out with someone special.

I was very disappointed with my order. It was unattractive in the plate and didn't taste any better. I am so sorry I didn't send it back. Will not go there again for brunch, and maybe not at all.

There was a long unexplained delay with our mains and then two came out with no sign of the others BUT the manager was right on this and came to our table to apologize and comp the two later mains. You can’t ask for any more from a restaurant when there’s a mistake like that; it shows the customer orientation and classiness of Amis. The food was excellent as always. We won’t hesitate to continue to patronize this restaurant.

the quality of food and presentation has changed dramatically. we won’t be back. meatballs were good, salad was so overdressed with too much vinegar that we couldn’t eat it. my husband got a chicken dish smothered in sauce that was too sweet such that he couldn’t eat it. a real disappointment.

Amis was having an off-night, due I think to trying to do innumerable delivery orders at the same time they were trying to perform for their in-house customers. The latter, Andrew and I included. suffered.

People kept sending stuff back to be reheated or ...? We had to wait after our shared appetizer for our shared pasta to arrive; then there was like 15 minutes before our entrees were even in sight.

But no, ONE only was in sight. Our server had to point out that the rainbow trout (mine) was on the same order. More home deliveries cascaded before us while we waited. When both finally arrived, Andrew's SPECIAL ENTREE looked completely thrown together and was only slightly warm. But by now it was getting late for us to get to the PhilOrch concert at the Kimmel Center, and my entree was, would you believe? perfectly edible. So we ate.

I can say all this because we were at the Chef's Counter and watching it all.

But as I began, I will repeat that Amis was having an off-night. Our server, Javas, was really good overall and in coaxing our patience, and the food itself (when it finally arrived) was as good as it always is. This was the first time we have had such an experience, and it won't prevent our returning. Indeed, I have already booked again.

We were unpleasantly surprised by the food and the very slow service when compared by multiple previous times
It seems that the restaurant changed Chefs and it is not, at this time what used to be
Hopefully will improve

Pasta dish of rigatoni’s was excellent. Eggplant appetizer was excellent. Two entree portions were both too much. Waiter should have recommended splitting. Sauce on chicken and pork chops was a little bitter.

Bufalo mozzarella was wonderful. Light and sweet. So good. Squid ink risotto with crab was equally amazing. The crab was cooked to perfection. I had the goat and loved every bite. My husband had the pork chop part. It was a little undercooked. Finished with pistachio cake which I would have ordered a second piece if my husband hadn’t stopped me. I never tasted anything so divine!

The Service went above and beyond. We were dining with my 10year old, and Though they don’t offer a children’s menu, the server made several suggestions, assuring my daughter would live her food. She did and so did we! Oh, Bloody Marys were excellent!

The food at Amis was great. My husband got the roasted half chicken and I got the tonnarelli pasta and both were delicious. The service was excellent and The staff was very kind. The only thing that would keep from going back was the fact that the other diners glared at us all night. We are a young African American couple so it happens sometimes in nice restaurants. We are used to it. Still, the overall experience would have been better without the glares.

First time at Amis and we were very impressed. We decided try some things new to us: beef cheek and goat. Both were excellent. And the wine we had, recommended by our server Javas, was excellent. Special kudos to Javas, by the way. Great service, well paced and everything explained nicely. Hope to be back soon.
