The food was somewhat tasty until I found a HAIR in it... (Not my hair colour or thickness either.... Too thin to be mine). Too bad i found it half way eating as the restaurant wouldn' take responsability for it. Unfortunately blaming the customer is NOT the answer! Having worked in hospitality for 10 years myself and knowing all the... More

Great food, romantic setting that would make it perfect for a date. Couldn't fault the service and gelato was AMAZING. Worth the trip just for the coffee and dessert

Our party of four has a lovely meal. Possible took a little long to come out but very nice food and we weren't in a rush. Just enjoying the company of each other. Dessert the chocolate brownie is to die for and would go back again just for that. Lovely atmosphere and the staff were friendly. Great evening.

Neat setting for a family dinner or a romantic couple. Professional service and a great kitchen. Nice varieties with something for everyone wanting a bit better eating. Nice selection of drinks and coffees. Super deserts. Always a bit above expectations.

I enjoy eating here they have a nice range of food and reasonably priced..Indoor and outdoor seating that's off the street, this is a bonus in the summertime to relax while having lunch

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
