Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were lucky enough to get in after the restaurant just re-opened following a renovation and menu refresh. Trip advisor menu is out of date, suggest getting one from website or call directly. All our food was great from pizzas, pasta and the salad. Well...prepared and generous in serving. Staff were great too. For those who have limited food/dietary needs the menu was noted to be a liitle constrained but workable. Desert was great, the chocolate cake is easy to share amongst 3 or 4 its so massive. Good value, good food. All of us walked away full after an enjoyable meal. Compared to what the hotel put on in the evening at the Kalinda restaurant whilst renovations were going on, this was like chalk v cheese... Well done trattoria AmiciMore

Food was very good, staff were friendly. Obviously a good place as there were lots of guests enjoying meals when we arrived. Prices are a little more expensive then we are used to coming from a Queensland town and not the city. We tried a...seafood dish and carbonara and I would say both were delicious. The carbonara comes with one piece of bread which was so good, wish it had a few more pieces. Size of that meals is good. The seafood one could have had more in it in my opinion as i left wanting more. Overall very nice food and enjoyed the experience noMore

Pizza without much interest. The taste is rather pleasant but we are far from an Italian pizza even revisited. They are also not generous.

Best Pizza. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and she was given complementary chocolates and the staff sang Happy Birthday. A nice touch.

Booked for dinner for 3 of us as I had a voucher to use. Very difficult place to get into, but once there all good. Staff were ok but not overly friendly, two of us had chilly prawn pasta which was nice but nothing special,...I had the lasagna which came in a ramekin, vey hard to eat and sloppy, nothing like I had hoped. Menu was limited so not much choice.More

Visited this Italian Restaurant whilst staying at the Royal pines resort. We had booked a table which was wise as it was quite busy when we arrived. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a nice table in a quiet area. Terrific menu with plenty...of choice. Food quality was great. I recommend the prawns (they were enormous!) and the pizzas are very tasty. A very relaxing and pleasant dinner with great service all round made for a very enjoyable evening.More

Amici is an Italian inspired restaurant at the Royal Pines Resort and this is the second time we have been here. The food is very good, we had Mooloolaba prawns on a tomato based spaghetti which was tasty but a touch of chilli would have...improved it, and the carbonara which was also ok, but it was a carbonara which was cream based, not a traditional dry carbonara, still ok though. The menu has decreased in size as they have everywhere due to staff shortages from covid, the wine list similarly small. The atmosphere is very comfortable and we have always found the seat excellent here.More

As a local, I had forgotten about this little gem of an Italian restaurant in Royal Pines, we had amazing food with great service, there was a slight timing issue of meals being delivered to the table, which our waitress immediately rectified without us asking....Definitely will be back.More

We had a table of 10 people and our experience was terrible Serge our waiter would clearly like to be anywhere else but present in his job….everything was an imposition to him..,our order was simple two antipasto plates and mainly shared pizzas to follow and...a couple of bottles of wine. One of us had ordered a spirit and the glass had a crack the majority of the drink leaked on the table we informed them and he simply poured it into a new glass not checking for glass of no apology. Food was lovely but was spoilt by the service…remember if your a waiter or in customer service the worst thing you can do is go to work and resent your job..just saying SergeMore

This is a quality restaurant due mainly to the friendly professional staff. We were part of a large group and all quality well-presented meals came out together. The menu was wide with steak, chicken, and fish included along with Italian choices. Dietary needs were well...catered for. Staff can only be described as very well trained/experienced, with special thanks to Matisse.More

This is our second visit and it was just as good as the first. Even with a captured audience they deliver great food and service. The arancini are so good! We also had the pizza and chicken saltimbocca. The kids pasta was huge and tasty....We really enjoyed our meal and found it to be reasonably priced and good quality. Make sure you book ahead even as a hotel guest they are quite popular but also do takeaway. Great place with kids.More
