This is a traditional Italian experience and they have BEAUTIFUL food. Usually pretty good with service, can be pretty slow during the week though when less staff on. Delicious potato chips! Just a shame that they aren't open v good hours and not every day of the week.

For a reasonably authentic Italian dining experience in Northland, with good food and service and mid-range prices, Amici is a good choice. I've had both business and family meals here and I've always left the place content, which is probably as good a sign as any that the overall experience has been good.

About 15 of us gathered for a catchup. We had looked at other restaurants and some places wanted us to have a set menu or pay 1 bill but Amici ticked all the boxes and most suitable. The place was great. Acoustically it was good, there was a nice fire and very good menu selection. The staff were very good... More

Food was about as good as most places in NZ. OK, but missing some serious flavor. My calzone was cooked perfectly, and it was huge, but it was pretty bland. Pizza was similar. Pretty bland, like most restaurants in NZ and Australia. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive staff. Price was higher than I expected, but not inordinately so.

Went with a group of friends. The atmosphere and staff were pleasant and friendly. Not to rushed at all. We all ordered and two of us ordered steamed mussels as a main. We all wanted to have the deserts, so none of us had a starter. The cook definitely does not understand the difference between steaming and boiling I believe.... More

From the moment we entered this restaurant, we had a good vibe. The fire was going and the room was very cosy. The waitress who showed us to our table was very friendly and her knowledge of what the specials were was helpful. The three of us all enjoyed our main course, in particular the steak and the braised shoulder... More

Tucked down 'Quality Street' (it's more of a lane) means Amici has its own peaceful and pleasant vibe that is sheltered from the drone of traffic. The food is uncomplicated and delicious, and Amici is a nice place to take loved ones out for special occasions. The coffee is perfectly acceptable and Amici does get some midday sun too.

Dined with two other friends, the atmosphere of Amici was friendly the waitress was helpful and pleasant, just loved her smile and she made us feel important. The meals were served and looked top chef style and lamb delicious. Banana split to finish a wow!

Visited last night - a treat for the grandchildren. After ordering we waited 40 minutes for the meal to be served. The adults meal was served first and waited another 5 minutes for the children's pizzas. For the price the quality of the pizzas were very overpriced and disappointing. The rack of lamb meal was very small albeit tasty. Service... More
