I dined at Amicis for dinner during the holidays, and it was a solid choice. It's not he best Italian I've had, but what stood out was the grilled salmon salad, which I ordered with the very unique house Italian dressing. The garlic bread that accompanied our meals was nice, warm, and resembled little pizza knots. Our other selection was... More

Had a very nice lunch today. My wife ordered a deluxe small salad. By most restaurants this would have been a large salad. The salad was brimming with romaine, mushrooms, tomatoes, pepperoni and shredded mozzarella with a homemade Italian dressing. She enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it if you are in the mood for a salad. I had a... More

We visited Devils Backbone and we're heading back to Richmond when we got the idea to get sidetracked to Scottsville. Looked up TA and saw Amici's as #1. Mary ordered the Ziti, Jim asked the waitress and she recommended penna chicken/broccoli in vodka sauce. Both meals were hits. Ziti a had a great tomato sauce w/ good Italian spices. Vodka... More

Means Exceedingly Good Value. After spending the day at Monticello, following three nights in Williamsburg, we are spending the night at a B&B in Scottsville before heading to the Greenbrier. Amicis is 100% American-Italian with a HUGE menu. And what a pleasant surprise: after getting ripped off consistently at egregiously overpriced places in Williamsburg, we find this completely unpretentious gem:... More
