The food was pretty bland. I got the Andy’s pizza and was underwhelmed. The lentil soup was good but they put way too much olive oil, it tasted like olive oil soup with lentils. There weren’t a lot of vegetarian pasta dishes which was a little disappointing. It was okay for dinner but not somewhere I’d necessarily visit often

My husband got the Cod and I had spaghetti meatballs. Both meals were very nice but a bit saltier than what we are accustomed to having.

Although our table wasn’t ready, our host was very gracious and we were soon seated. Our service was efficient and the wait staff was knowledgeable. I did feel that my meal might have been sitting under a warmer for a while, as it seemed a bit dry, although it was tasty.
As a small neighborhood establishment, the prices are on the high side, but the place was very busy and everyone looked satisfied.

My husband and I both had trout, which, as usual, was wonderful. Our friends had duck, which they also liked.

We were seated promptly and the delivery of the appetizers was as well. The delivery of the entres was woefully slow, and the margarita pizza one of us had was mediocre at best. The other of us ordered the grilled red snapper which was done well. Because of an understanding mixup, the accompanying pasta that was substituted for potatoes was not brought with the broccoli. He was told that when one substitutes pasta for the menu sides, it replaces both of them. We won't go back there.

What a great neighborhood restaurant! Unfortunately, they moved from our neighborhood so we have to make a little bit more of an effort to dine, but always worth it. Still the same consistent execution of their wonderful dishes and now even featuring some amazing Sardinian wines on a regular basis.

Main dishes were good. Pizza just ok. Grilled octopus wasn’t grilled and chewy. Caesar salad no flavor. Server seemed to be in a rush and annoyed when we weren’t ready to put in our entree order. Wasn’t attentive seemed to just want to leave for the night and get us out quickly.

We were in town from PA and wanted an Italian dinner. Found restaurant on line and reviews were good so we went there. A bit surprised by location and size but went in and had a DELICIOUS meal with excellent service. We were warmly welcomed by the staff. Don’t be put off by looks of restaurant - go for the food!! We’ll certainly go back when in town again.

I usually order from the regular menu but we tried the lunch buffet. It was very very disappointing. Much rather go to other Itailian lunch buffets in the area. They need to step it up if this is $11.99. Mussels were almost empty. Best part about the meal was dessert which was from the regular menu.

The special Veal Ravioli was outstanding! Also ordered a pizza that was also so very yummy. Sauce was very good, a sweeter sauce. Wasn’t tart. The ravioli was in a “sauce” made from the veal stock. Truly fantastic. Will definitely be back.

If you are not looking to impress someone with the venue, this is a very good choice for dinner with friends and family. Location is odd and entry is very tired, but food is great and interesting choices.

Amici Miei is always a satisfying, rewarding experience. The service is excellent, helpful and professional and the Sardinian specialties, in particular, are outstanding, as are the Sardinian wines. Roberto, the owner and overseer runs a truly professional and friendly establishment with waiters trained in the correct continental style, where they know how everything is made, are willing to make some changes and accommodate half portions, if requested, and (from my perspective) are not overly faux-familiar. I don't have to know my server's name, nor do I wish him/her to interrupt my conversation with my dinner companions by asking "Is everything O.K.?" every 10 minutes, two things unique to U.S. waiters and waitresses. These are real professional servers thanks to Roberto's running a tight ship. I'm so happy they're in Rockville and accessible.

My wife and I brought my daughter, a part-time food blogger who lives in LA, here for the first time. She loved everything we ordered and was surprised the bill, which included a bottle of wine, was so reasonable, considering the food was awesome. Everyone there were as cordial and and friendly as usual. Would definitely go back there.

The food is excellent, whenever we are in town to visit friends we always go to Amici Miei.
The braised duck was delicious so the Mediterranean sea bass. You must try the malloreddus pasta it's a winner among my nieces! Always looking forward to next visit. A friendly service in quaint atmosphere.
J'adore ce restaurant!!!

We felt the food at the old establishment was better. This was OK, but there was no lemonade, no steak sauce, and no ice for the drinks. And the veal had no taste.

We have been going to this restaurant for years, both in its old location and now in downtown Rockville, and we have always enjoyed the food and wine and appreciated the fact that we didn't have to go into DC to get a good meal. Thus in planning to meet up with friends this past Sunday evening, we had no hesitation in suggesting Amici Miei. But the food was so bad that we were really embarrassed. I don't know if they have a different chef on Sundays or what, but what we ate was simply unrecognizable. I had braised duck that was overcooked, full of small bones, and smothered in tasteless gloppy sauce. My husband had pasta with seafood that was rubbery and also smothered in some sort of irrelevant sauce. Our friends had fish and did not seem very pleased with it, though they were too polite to say so. Our waiter was polite and helpful but too overworked to be very attentive, as he also was also serving as bartender and had only one busperson to assist him. Perhaps the ownership has changed hands? Something is off--and the prices are, if anything, higher than ever. Very disappointed!!!
