I just don't get all the great reviews this place is getting. I just moved to downtown Suffolk and I'm beginning to think that Suffolkians have bland taste buds. THIS IS NOT ITALIAN!!!
I have been twice and will never make the mistake again. The first time, I, my boyfriend, and another couple went to brunch at Amici's. We ordered, waited for 45 minutes for our food when our server came out to tell us that the computers went down and that she would have to take down our order again. That baffled us because she originally took our order down on a pad of paper, and because our order wasn't even being cooked yet. Once we got our food (about 15 minutes later) we had to wait yet again for silverware (another 5 minutes.) I ordered eggs benedict only to find that it was poached egg on top of soggy french bread with hollandaise smothered over top. Interesting. We complained to the owner who seemed to have NO customer service skills but gave us a $35 gift certificate and invited us back for dinner. He assured us it would be better because our server was new (the computers did not go down by the way) and that this was totally out of character for his restaurant.
Anyway, my boyfriend and I went back tonight for dinner (about 2 weeks later) figuring we had nothing to lose at this point. Boy were we wrong. Our server seemed nice and kept our drinks full in the beginning. Good. We ordered the calamari. Bad. The batter was salty and fell right off the calamari every time we tried to dip. Our margherita pizza came quickly. Good. It was incredibly bland (except the random processed chunks of uncooked garlic hiding in the cheese). BAD. We waited for about 10 minutes for our check while the server cleaned the liquor shelves (with a full restaurant) which was weird and annoying so we just gave her the certificate and told her to keep the change.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone unless they are looking for cheap ingredients, bad service and an overall unpleasant dining experience. I would however recommend: Sushi Aka, Primo 116, or Pisces restaurant which are all within walking distance.
We love this place! Great location right by Main Street Suffolk. Outdoor seating is cozy and relaxing like you're overseas. Their pizza is fresh and homemade...so good! Not greasy at all, great ingredients. We will be back soon!
Love it, Love it, Love it. We just moved here and haven't been able to find a great pizza place, but this is it. They have an amazing beer selection and the food is outstanding. It's always busy, but we waited at the bar till a table was ready, and the service was great.
We will be going here lots.
