You really can't go wrong here. Chef Dominic Bolla always has wonderful specials. If the shortrib pasta is on the menu, get it! The veal saltimbocca is also to die for.

If you enjoy Italian food, well prepared, perfectly served and reasonably price, Amici is hard to beat. Amici offers an extensive menu with daily specials. The Braciole and fish were outstanding. Full bar, decent wine list, mature servers completed a memorable experience.

Are you looking for a 'local' Italian restaurant with truly good food? Well then, look no further than Amici's. We marveled at the well prepared risotto, eggplant and fresh salad with really good, mozzarella cheese slices included. Our bellies were happy, happy, happy!
