We often have lunch at Amici. We prefer to sit outside whenever the weather is sunny as the outside dining area is very pleasant. We particularly enjoy the pizzas and usually choose our own toppings despite there being a comprehensive list. The staff are always friendly and attentive. There are lots of choices on the menu but if you are... More

There was about 12 of us so I understand it takes time. It was about 45 minutes before meals starting rolling out. When ordering the first person to give his order next to me was told that no one else was ordering a starter which put him ordering one. How would she know as he was the first to order?... More

The food was somewhat tasty until I found a HAIR in it... (Not my hair colour or thickness either.... Too thin to be mine). Too bad i found it half way eating as the restaurant wouldn' take responsability for it. Unfortunately blaming the customer is NOT the answer! Having worked in hospitality for 10 years myself and knowing all the... More

Great food, romantic setting that would make it perfect for a date. Couldn't fault the service and gelato was AMAZING. Worth the trip just for the coffee and dessert

Our party of four has a lovely meal. Possible took a little long to come out but very nice food and we weren't in a rush. Just enjoying the company of each other. Dessert the chocolate brownie is to die for and would go back again just for that. Lovely atmosphere and the staff were friendly. Great evening.

Neat setting for a family dinner or a romantic couple. Professional service and a great kitchen. Nice varieties with something for everyone wanting a bit better eating. Nice selection of drinks and coffees. Super deserts. Always a bit above expectations.

I enjoy eating here they have a nice range of food and reasonably priced..Indoor and outdoor seating that's off the street, this is a bonus in the summertime to relax while having lunch

This is a traditional Italian experience and they have BEAUTIFUL food. Usually pretty good with service, can be pretty slow during the week though when less staff on. Delicious potato chips! Just a shame that they aren't open v good hours and not every day of the week.
