Lovely place tucked away from the main traffic flow. Service was great. Had one of the daily specials and also an item off the menu, both well presented and very enjoyable, no shortcuts on the special. Restaurant service but cafe prices. Our water was replaced as soon as we finished the bottle twice - it was a hot day

This small restaurant sits in an attractive location in the heart of town. The menu is varied but predominantly Italian. The service at lunch time was excellent, the food good and of average value. We enjoyed pizzas. We tried to return later in the week for another meal but found the restaurant is closed between 3 and 5pm.

Staff courteous and service good. Cafe style layout, clean and attractive though a little too gloomy indoors for my taste. We ate outside on the small terrace, with fresh flowers on the tables. The wine selection was interesting and the Reds very much to my taste. The antipasto platter was sufficient for three with a mains to follow, all the... More

Since we had to be in town twice that week we decided to treat ourselves to an Italian lunch in addition to our usual Thai lunch at Pimarn Thai. We'd checked out the menu the week before so we were pretty sure how we'd order. My wife loves Spaghetti Bolognese or SpagBol as she calls it. And I thought the... More

Awesome food, reasonable prices and great staff. The portions are perfect and not too big. I always come there when I'm in Whangarei. The staff was very friendly and caring although it was quite a busy day. Moreover the atmosphere is very warm and friendly inside as well as outside.

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

Italian style restaurant. We had a small pizza and a risotto with ham and asparagus. Perfect for us but I think you can stuff yourself with a full Italian meal as well
