I was looking for a place to have Thanksgiving Dinner during the time of Covid. I'm not necessarily a fan of turkey, but turkey roulade sounded great with roasted brussels sprouts, stuffing with rosemary sauce and roasted sweet potato sounded delicious. It was a bargain at $26 but there were limited wine choices by the glass, but fortunately the pinot grigio married well. Nevertheless a fantastic meal followed by pistachio cannoli with a hint of orange flavoring drizzled in chocolate. Absolutely superb. I had no idea how crowded it might be, and dined early. No crowds--we we nicely spaced apart, and apparently many people ordered carry-out. Will have to try them again in the future.

Service was excellent, this is an authentic Italian restaurant! The food is prepared to perfection, small but good atmosphere. Definitely a must visit. Parking is easy and they validate.

A group of us went here for an evening meal and it was fantastic. The eggplant parmesan, the lasagna and especially the seafood salad. It's food quality for foodies. The waiter was so friendly and patient and helpful.

Two couples gathered at Amici Miei for an outdoor meal on a chilly evening. We were prepared for the weather, though we'd been told that there were heaters in use, but there were not. Our table was small, not big enough for 6 foot distancing, but we trusted our friends to be healthy. Once over these hurdles, we enjoyed a very delightful meal, choosing several of the evening's specials, and everyone was happy. The seafood ravioli was said to be very good, and my veal scallopine with mushrooms was excellent and a very ample serving. (I took some of it home for the next day!) Our fourth had soup special and salad and enjoyed both. Our service was very good, likely partly because there were few customers that evening, sadly a consequence of the scary times in which we are living. We enjoyed our experience very much and hope that Amici Miei will continue to be successful despite these challenging times.

We sat outside. Tables were spaced well apart and the food was very good. We were surprised that the menus were not disposable and felt the need to use sanitizer after touching them. Hopefully they are cleaning everything very well

I judge an Italian restaurant by its lasagna. At Amici Miei, the texture, the layering, and most importantly, the sauce, exceeded expectations. This is an excellent Italian eatery, with first-rate service. I will be back with my family.

Warm reception immediately set the tone for a pleasant dinner experience. Food was excellent and well prepared- wine selection was good and not overpriced
Fresh cod was the special with mashed butternut squash that was delicious
I will certainly go back again to try their pasta dishes soon

We had an early dinner before going to a concert so we had the restaurant to ourselves at first. Even as the restaurant filed it was not loud. The service was excellent and the food was even better. I will be going back again for sure.

We had been going to the N Potomac location for over 11 years! The new Rockville location looks like a converted Chinese restaurant and the menu now reflects a standard (basic) Italian menu. More focus on the pizza and less on the sublime authentic italian menu selections. Gone are the white charred sardines, the Brick oven roasted Bronzino and all the other subtle but unique menu items that made the original location so special to dine at. Food and service was still good but we will not be coming back. My wife and i were very sad to see the new location and experience it for the first and no only time.

Lovely little restaurant with great ambience & excellent service. The food however was average and we have had a lot better for the price.
I would go again and give it a second try as it was Valentine’s night / busy so maybe the kitchen was under a bit of pressure.

Amici Miei is unmatched both as a warm and welcoming neighborhood spot and as a place to enjoy amazing Sardinian and Italian food. The food —specials and regular menu — is outstanding and the service is top notch. Owner Roberto fosters a friendly, relaxed ambiance that makes his guests feel right at home. A real gem and not to be missed!

We really enjoyed this restaurant. We really enjoyed the traditional Sardinian dishes and the food was delicious. We had a great bottle of Sardinian wine and the service was excellent. We enjoyed talking to the owner Roberto as we are visiting Sardinia in the spring and he gave us great advice for our trip.

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
