We actually living 3 blocks away from the restaurant and never made it in because "Italian food " is not really my top choice if we go out. I bought a groupon on the Internet to try it out. We was really surprised in a good way. It is not at all what you would expect from the outside. Coming... More

Very good Italian food. I love the Veal Princepessa (not sure if I spelled that correctly). It's delicious! I'm never disappointed when we eat at Amici's. We've also visited here plenty of times to just have a drink at the bar.

After living in this area many years and hearing about Amici's we decided to give it a try. We were greeted warmly at the door which is always a good way to start the evening. The menu has all of the typical Italian dishes... I ordered the veal parmesan and my companion had the lasagne. Both were good, not fantastic,... More

My son and daughter-in-law held a family birthday party for my darling granddaughter here. There were at least two other large parties going on at the same time. The service was very good, with attentive staff. The menu was selected ahead of time and I loved the chicken parmesian. The room we reserved was well-appointed and nicely set up for... More

this is the kind of restaurant that has been here forever, probably with the same menu (and staff) for the last 20 years. Our service was slow and not particularly enthusiastic except when the bill was presented. Food was Ok, but nothing to write home about. Wine choices for non-Italian wines were limited although to be fair mark up was... More

Have been here several times before and have never been disappointed with the food or service. This time my friend and I tried the full course dinner at the back of the menu. You get an appetizer (choose from four), a pasta dish (choose from three) and your main course, which you choose from four. Portions on the pasta and... More

Found III Amici on website with great recommendations. And I can only second it. The food is exxeptional, the staff is friendly and service good. Only possible problem is popular so can be loud when a large group is celebrating

Nice open restaurant, piano playing on certain nights, separate bar & outdoor patio. Started with clams oreganata, and they made a special request not on menu, Salmon francese over angel hair pasta, prepared to perfection!! Hubby had shrimp cocktail, which were a nice size and tasty, but not cleaned all they way. His entree was stuffed sole which he enjoyed.

I dined at this restaurant, and was very disappointed. The decor is very upscale, and beautiful, but the food does not match the ambiance. My bread was cold, and I could drive nails with it. The shrimp sauce tasted awful! Sometimes a restaurant relies on its past reputation, but I believe you must consistently re-evaluate, and test your product. To... More
