About the restaurant
La Nouvelle is the next story in our culinary journey by Michael Lugo. This opportunity to bring French Nouveau cuisine to our city has us so excited. Bringing to the helm Matthieu Landillon from the coastal city of Marseille, La Nouvelle allows us to explore classic French Bistro fare with an elevated edge. The atmosphere will lead you to the streets of Paris without leaving St. Augustine.

A new restaurant discovery, it has become an immediate favorite! We introduced friends today and they were just as smitten with the food and ambiance. Everything we had was delicious and the service was helpful and attentive. We will return and will continue to introduce to others. Well worth the drive from Palm Coast!

Always a great experience at FT! Our server was Nick B and he took great care of us. The food was awesome and the drinks are even better. Some of the highlights were the shrimp and grits etouffee and the bone-in pork chop. Always a great time at FT!

Cute, quirky restaurant. Bigger and nicer than it looks from the outside. Restaurant is on the second floor but you can walk up or take an elevator. It is fun to sit by the window and watch the little planes come and go. My only disappointment was that on of the windows we were seated by had a broken seal so it was fogged up. The food was very good and the service was excellent. I look forward to going back.

Fantastic meal! My husband and I shared the lobster and conch fritters they were delicious the sauce they serve with them was perfect. I got the ahi tuna it’s the first time I ordered it anywhere and I’m so glad I tried it here… amazing!! My husband got the surf and turf fried rice and that was amazing as well. I got the kiss on the lips martinI and my husband got the jalapeño margarita, both were very good. Our server Skylar was awesome he gave us recommendations which we definitely used to decide what we wanted to order. We will be back again next time we are in St Augustine.

About the restaurant
Amici Italian Restaurant, located on the corner of A1A and 312, has been part of the St. Augustine community for over 20 years. In 2020, local Award-winning Chef Freddy Underhill and his wife, Jennifer, purchased Amici with the hopes of carrying on it's legacy. However, 6 days in, they were shut down for dine-in service due to COVID-19. The new owners were motivated and are proud to have remained open to serve St. Augustine and the many visitors travelling through each year. Best known for their traditional Italian-American classics like lasagna, parmigiana and alfredo, locals love the Pancetta Candita (aka Candied Bacon) and the Boozy Tiramisu. Don't miss the best kept secrets though! Regulars love the 16+ oz. USDA Prime Ribeye and the Award-Winning Celery Datil Soup. Only three miles south of the historic district, Amici has plenty of parking and loves entertaining large parties. They are family-owned and operated and love to host other families!

The food here is always solid. We do make sure to make a reservation just in case it’s super busy. We request Amanda if she is working. She knows the food and specials and makes great suggestions.
