Food was good, but not worth the high prices. Service was slow. We waited 25 minutes for our drinks and the waitress walked away without taking our food order. I am upset that our experience was like this because it seems like a very nice restaurant.
No place is perfect, but this place is as close to it. My husband and I have been going for 5 years now (he's been going his whole life). The food and atmosphere and service is always exceptional. Due to finances we haven't been able to go as often, but they still remember us when we come in and make us feel welcome.
I don't know what real Italian food tastes like but this place's food was great! I took my wife for dinner and the place was almost full with people varying from young couples to retiree couples. And the staff was swift and professional.
I don't know what the other guy was talking about, the one with all the bad comments. I think he needs to look at the bright side of things more often and live a little.
We had fun here.
My wife and I went to Cafe Amici for the first time being new to the area with hopes for a great Italian meal with the possibility of some authentic sauces/options. Overall we found it to be good American Italian, better than the other chain options. The service was ok with the hostess seeming rushed with a quick hello and then a seating. Our waitress was friendly but also rushed. My wife had a pesto pasta dish that she enjoyed because it was not an overly heavy pesto you often find, I had the Amici steak that I liked very much, although I felt alittle under cooked or medium well. I was disappointed with the salad, being that it was large chunks of iceberg salad that seemed to have been ripped off the head, I also ordered a penne pasta side with my steak and got linguini, like they had some left over and did not want to make some fresh pene. After getting our meal the waitress disappeared for some time and I had to ask another waiter to get her and he became annoyed when I did not know her name, then he just got more shredded cheese for us. Upon leaving the hostess was not at her place and we received no acknowledgement or thank you upon leaving.
This restaurant has alot of potential if they could bring up their service and quality to what they have advertised as fine dining. For a $50 meal I expect more and probably will not return for sometime.
Cafe Amici was an excellent italian restaurant. The service was good and the food was different from some of the chain restaurants in the area. The sauces were delicious, but they weren't traditional Italian, still a great little place to have dinner. My wife and I enjoy going here for a nice sit down restaurant away from the rush of everything around exit 10.
