I've been here twice for dinner and it's OK. I think the menu is a bit confused, they might be still trying to figure out the tastes of their clients. I like the atmosphere, nice large bar downstairs and some high tale seating but I...More

Second visit for me. I had the Swordfish meatballs again. Very good flavor. Nice atmosphere, although the music choice is a bit odd for a quieter place. Good service.

I have a theory that the best food in most restaurants is on the appetizer list. This is where the chefs get to show off their creativity separate from the need to stuff the entree list with categorical proteins (the steak plate, the Catch of...More

Description
Amis brings the quintessential Roman-style trattoria to Philadelphia’s Center City neighborhood. Opened in 2010 by Vetri Family partners Jeff Benjamin and Chefs Marc Vetri, Brad Spence and Jeff Michaud, Amis has cemented its place as one of the city’s premier dining destinations, garnering high praise from such publications as the Philadelphia Inquirer (three-out-of-four-bells) and Bon Appetit magazine (“Top 10 Places for Pasta in the U.S.”), and from the crowds of regular guests who pack its dining room nightly for dinner and weekends for brunch. Lively, comfortable and convivial, dining at Amis is perfect for a variety of occasions, boasting a share-plates menu of house-made pasta, salumi, farm-fresh meats and peak seasonal vegetable dishes, perfect for sharing while celebrating with friends and family, or a meal out with someone special. Be sure to ask about our “Beast of Amis” menu too. These special dishes feature whole animals—birds, hogs, fish and even full sides of beef.
