Amici Miei Ratings and Reviews
1. Lime in my wife's drink should not have been served (way old).
2. I was told by server they could make a pepperoni pizza, only then to be served another pizza entirely...had I known this I would have ordered something else.
3. Once we told server we were not quite ready to place order...he stayed away for at least 10 min.
4. Bread served after we requested, but olive oil not served until we made repeated requests...again...this took another 10 min.
We had never been but took a chance based on reviews. The staff was very attentive and engaging. The food arrived quickly, hot and received great reviews by all. We had a range of entrees including fish, chicken, lasagna and the pasta special. The homemade pasta was delicious and cooked perfectly. We will definitely come back. It was a fun night! BTW we were happy to have made a reservation for our Saturday night outting.....we were seated immediately but the place was packed with a wait for others.
This destination has been a mainstay for our family since it opened. Roberto and Davide, the co-proprietors do a tremendous job providing high quality food at reasonable prices (given that quality). While the Potomac restaurant is closing ahead of the move to Rockville, I'm confident they will maintain the high level of quality of food and service their customers, including our family, have come to expect. If you like authentic Italian cuisine, ranging from wild game, to steaks, seafood, house-made pasta and pizza, I think you'll love Amici Miei.
Amici Mei has long been our favorite restaurant in the Rockville area. The food is authentically Italian, the best we've had outside of Rome. Seasonal specials have always been excellent. We like to split three courses, having a salad, pasta and entree. The amount is just right. We love the service as well. The restaurant is moving to a smaller space in downtown Rockville and we hope that it will do as well there.
My husband took me there for my birthday. We just wanted a casual place with good food. It was Halloween night so it was really quiet in there, which is great. We were seated immediately and we could hear each other easily. We found the staff friendly. But the waiter knew it was my birthday and never acknowledged it. I was surprised that the menu was so limited. Not many items to choose from. I settled on a pizza and it was ok. Not the best, not the worst. We split dessert which was a flourless chocolate cake with crushed almonds in it. It was tasty. I wouldn't go running back to Amici Miei. It's fine, but not much more.
Amici Miei is a local restauarant gem in Potomac/Rockville area. Casual atmosphere, great food and wines equals total success for a fabulous local restaurant in my book! A must visit at least once a week for local residents. Jeans OK! The point is the food. AMAZING!
We have been coming to Amici Miei ever since we read about it in the Washingtonian's list of best restaurants and have never been disappointed since. The quality is excellent and the service and staff wonderful. When guests accompany my husband and myself to dinner here, I never have to worry if everyone will be happy.
This is one of our 'go to' restaurants -- casual, nearby, very good to excellent food and pleasant service, all at a reasonable to slightly more price. On this Sunday evening visit we started with the Salumi platter and it was excellent. Together with a bottle of wine and some crunchy bread, it could have been a meal in itself. But we didn't stop there, of course. One entree was the special branzino; the other was the veal scallopine with mushrooms. Both were pretty outstanding. The branzino was fileted before presentation. The skin was crispy and the fish was perfectly cooked. The veal was succulent and there was a lot of it; the mushroom sauce was lovely. We finished with coffee for one and espresso for one. The latter was so good that it was reordered.
This is a comfortable local spot that has very authentic Italian food. It is not a typical "red sauce" trattoria. Influences from Tuscany, Sicily, and Sardinia are in the menu and daily specials. I do think the decor is a bit tired. The wait staff is good but tends to be a bit brusque. They have the best calamari, nicely mixed with some shrimp, and their fish dishes are outstanding. The lasagne is light and airy in contrast to the often leaden versions of many popular places in this area. We will be back!
We love Amici Mei and have been going for years because we're lucky enough to be within a few miles. The owner is such a kind and friendly man, the staff has been the same forever and the food is amazing and always inventive. If you have an opportunity, I highly recommend a visit!
