Amici has just recently opened their branch in Tomas Morato, QC. It’s in Bellagio Square, right under Ratsky’s and beside Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. Their original branch was near Don Bosco. Many people I know recommended this restaurant for us to try and so we did.
We only ordered 2 things on the menu which is the Cannelonni Agli Spinaci and Italian Sausage. The Cannelonni was ok, nothing really spectacular however the Italian Sausage, I must say is a must try there. It’s juicy and very meaty. As for the vegetable sidings, it has no taste. I wish they have at least boiled it with salt.
What I noticed in the place is that it’s too “fastfoody” ( if there is such a term), meaning people just come and go, everthing is self service. It’s nothing really bad about fastfood it’s just that maybe I am used to Sbarro’s set up. Sbarro is an Italian fastfood but you can still feel that it is a restaurant different from your regular fastfood joints.
One thing I can commend this restaurant is there gelatos. It’s delicious and cheap. They have lots of flavors to choose from so you can still get another round if you’re finished with one. 🙂 I chose the Pistachio Gelato because it’s really my favorite.
So I would say that my over-all experience with Amici is ok, like I said earlier nothing really spectacular. Also the prices of their food ranges from Php 160-300+ and most of their food are good for sharing. For Php 160 you can already order the Spaghetti Al Pomodoro ( classic tomato sauch, parmesa cheese and fresh basil) or Spaghetti Aglio Olio E Pepperoncino ( Pasta with lots of garlic, olive oil and chilies). Their pizzas are 12 inches wide and the cheapest pizzas there are Margherita ( Mozzarella cheese and fresh basil), Capricciosa (Spicy Pepperoni, Italian Sausage and olives), Prosciutto E Funghi ( Mushrooms and smoked ham) and Napoletana (Mozzarella cheese, anchovies and olives).
