Amici is a great restaurant. The service is fantastic and the food is incredible. The decor is a little dated, but that somehow adds to the charm. The restaurant is mostly filled with retirees, but it is a nice, quiet spot for an excellent meal.

Great food. Server was competent but made no attempt to be personable. She was cold and almost borderline rude in that there were no niceties at all. It was the only negative.

We have been to Amici's 3 times for lunch in the past month.
Everything could not have been lovely.
The owner looked after us and the service was excellent.
The pastas and salads were absolutely wonderful.
I am so glad that Amici is on opentable!!

Service is efficient and very friendly

The lunch specials are outstanding.

With all of the competition on the North Shore, Amici stands out as a star
You would be hard pressed to find a better Caesar salad anywhere.

This place has the very best Caesar salad and their soups are outstanding.

The rack of lamb is superb as are the veal medallions.

The service is very attentive and friendly.

This is a must visit on the north shore.

Mly salad was delicious. I couldn't eat the calamari because it was too chewy. Apparently it is always chewy. The restaurant exchanged it for prawns. Classy act. My friends had the Sunday roast. Meat was very fatty.

We have eaten here many times over the years. The food is excellent, the service even better. A combination of friendliness, humour, and promptness. It is a standby for us for family dinners out or on occasion when I am alone at home rather than cooking for myself, I bring a book and often get a window table at which I can read and eat. The service on those occasions is just as friendly as when we have a large group.

There are several pasta dishes, veal, and a variety of Italian cuisine. Well-presented and filling yet not excessively large portions.

It was a special get-together among friends and we enjoyed the food-I had the seafood salad, which was delicious, the others had Fettuccine alla Carbonara, but found it a bit heavy...too much cream.

Best Italian restaurant on the North shore, maybe the best over all. Good food, friendly and helpful service and most reasonable prices. especially for the wine list. Always a good experience
