Food was good but not great. Skip the calamari appetizer. Below ordinary and ours was under cooked. The deserts were excellent. Entrees were average and not presented well. Pizza was better than entrees.

The food was outstanding. My husband and I ordered the specials. One was a seafood pasta dish and the other one was the wild boar. It was our first time having dinner at Amici Miei and we will definitely return.

The Platonic form of a favorite Italian restaurant. The food is solid, the menu familiar (pasta, pizza, fish, meat), the ambiance welcoming, the service professional and friendly, the prices reasonable. What is not to like?

Everything is fresh. I always enjoy the grilled fish (especially salmon) with a salad and some well-prepared green vegetables. There is a good selection of wines, as well as desserts. The ambiance is warm and friendly. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Went for a quick lunch with a friend on my lunch hour. Delicious food! Classy decor. Polite and attentive servers. A little pricey and the temperature of the room was a little chilly, but other than that everything was great.

Very good Italian food that thankfully has not been standardized to American tastes .
There were 10 of us there for dinner and all said the food was great.
The owner, who is Italian from Sardinia , came to the table to explain the typical dishes and to recommend a red wine he had just received and was in fact excellent .
Net: very good food and wine in a warm atmosphere.

Amici Miei has been our go-to place for a long time, even before they moved to downtown Rockville. We look forward to their “Weekend Specials” email every Wednesday and often that decides our weekend plans. On this visit, we had three of the four specials; we each had the absolutely fabulous Tuna Carpaccio, my wife had the Head-on Shrimp over linguine, and I had the Veal Osso Buco — perfection! And easily the best Tiramisu in the area to take home. Owner Roberto Deias always greets us warmly, and we know how much effort he puts into presenting a fantastic menu every night.

If you love excellent food, Amici Miei is the place to be. Authentic Italian food served with great care. You might come in for something exotic or just want some fairly simple pasta or pizza. They've got you covered. One night recently, I had a spectacular fish entree prepared with prosciutto with a roasted octopus starter course. My wife had a truly flavorful veal ravioli course that was remarkable and quite unique. Other days, I might only want the pizza, which is also done wonderfully. Roberto (the proprietor) is always highly professional and welcoming. Parking is in the lot right outside. Be sure to get your ticket validated and it will be free.

This restaurant is consistently a winner. Whether it's an interesting pizza or a more elaborate entree, the food is delicious. My husband comes back for the Sardinian pasta; I love the rainbow trout. It's always a treat to have dinner here - and real easy and convenient.
