Let's face it...eating out at anything other than fast food is expensive. so what compensates for this poor value, in my opinion, is that you get through the night feeling valued , like the employees are glad you're there, to get through the night w/o...feeling p*ssed off about something. Amici's is one of those places. The Carpenito family take your experience PERSONALLY. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I've been going there since they opened their doors 8-9 years ago, and I don't think I've had anything less than a great experience. Some "typical" Italian but also some very personalized dishes. They have a mixture of tomato, garlic, parmesan & a touch of balsamic vinegar that is "core" to a few of their dishes. Like bruschetta, sachettis...oh, those sachetti's are fantastic. Little "raviolis" stuffed with mushrooms, cheese, herbs, with this topping of chopped tomato, garlic, balsamic vinegar and spinach topped with parm shavings. Their wine pour is fairly generous at around 7-8 ounces. The only poor value is their mixed drinks. The margaritas are served in an old fashioned glass. I will say that a Margarita has NO BUSINESS showing up in less other than a 16 oz water glass OR a generous sized margarita glass. Stick to wine or beer and you'll be happy. If you need to go out and you need to make sure you have a good experience (i.e. a hot date, anniversary, impressing a co worker or boss), this is your safest bet in the city of Waterville I promise.More

With five children having various food affinities, Amici’s chefs create amazing meals that cater to the nuances of vegan, vegetarian, and our meat lovers! The food is fresh, tasty, and the ambience incredible !

Fantastic dinner. Arrived a little early to make sure that we had a good table. The waitress was fantastic. Attentive and informative but let us have our time and space to visit and catch up. Food and wine was awesome. Too full to have dessert.

I loved this restaurant. We had an excellent meal. We also had the privilege of having the daughter of the chef as our waitress. She allowed us to order the specials of yesterday today. I had stuffed shells and a salad. We had a party...of five and were waited on very well.More

This is the place if you feel like Italian food. Garlic bread ( there is a charge) is well worth it. It was hot and delicious. The menu has all of the usual Italian dishes. The salad which comes with the meal was a nice...addition. The veal was tender and flavorful. Everyone enjoyed their pasta entrées. I will definitely return in the future. Main Street in Waterville now has an exciting vibe in the evening. New restaurants are opening, you see more people and traffic downtown.More

Service started badly and only got worse. Food was cold, sent back to be heated and came back cold again. No follow up from management....bad experience

First, the food was absolutely delicious. Second, the server went above and beyond the call of duty. One menu had the previous days specials in it, and two members of our party liked one of the items; however, it was not available on our night....The server spoke to the chef who made the dish and, in turn, our night. Excellent service and excellent food.More

Waterville, Maine is becoming such a foodie kind of town, and, being a resident, I couldn't be happier. Amici's Cucina is one of the reasons why we are putting ourselves on the map. The food is fresh and delicious, and so are the drinks. The...staff is attentive, professional, and friendly. I gave it 4 stars instead of five, just because the salad that came with my entree was just your average house salad. I judge restaurants based on their salad selection and creativity and although I did order and get a house salad, and it was fine as house salads go ,I'd really like to see more restaurants up their salad game.More
