If you are on a diet this restaurant is for you!

You will not finish anything on the plate. The Sauce is straight from a can! That is not a joke. How does this place stay in business?

The salad is plain lettuce with some canned

Our company tried to order take out one day and the hostess answering the phone on 10/1/09 at 12:30pm refused to help we told her we would order our lunch from someone else and she just said that's fine!!
BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! We order lunch out everyday but never again will we try Amici's in Arvada

Absolutely awful. The waitress was extremely grumpy. I am a vegetarian, and I ordered a salad without pepperoni, got a plate of iceberg lettuce with dressing. When I asked if I could have some more vegetables, she scowled and told me that she would have to charge me another $4 for vegetables on my salad, even though I had requested no meat which is far more expensive than veggies for the restaurant to buy! Our bill (for 2 people) was $50, and all we had were two bowls of spaghetti, two salads, (plus the "extra" charge for my vegetables) and 2 glasses of wine (BAD wine). NOT worth the price. The dinner I had there I would have been ok paying $20 for, but definitely not more. This is one of the worst restaurants I have been to in years. Definitely stay FAR AWAY!

Pros: the bartender was funny

Cons: food, waitstaff, atmosphere, price

Amici's is a nice, old-fashioned, "white flour and red sauce", Italian restaurant that really jets customers back to the 70's. This place looks like it was plucked right out of another decade and placed on North Sheridan near 52nd Avenue. The restaurant is very popular, especially with long-time Denver residents who know where it is. Other people might not ever try the restaurant because it is in a very run-down shopping center on its last legs. The restaurant itself is nice enough, and very clean, but suffers from a weak location. The restaurant is scheduled to move to Wadsworth Boulevard in the location of the old Gemini restaurant that is being completely renovated for a January 2009 opening. Rumor is that the move may be delayed until at least March, but I cannot verify.

When we were there, we were pleased with the nice assortment of inexpensive house wines and the overall fair prices. The pizza was good, but not great. It was, however, generously topped with an abundance of ingredients, including fresh mushrooms-not canned. We passed on the other offerings after learning that, even though the pasta sauce they use is vegetarian, they do use it to "warm-up" the meatballs. Vegetarians will want to note this.

Overall, the portions and prices seemed very reasonable and the restaurant was very popular. It was crowded even on a Wednesday evening. They have a loyal following and should do well for years, maybe even better in their new location. This is a family-owned restaurant and a good local value.

We have been eating at Amici's for years. The food is delicious and the salad dressing is worth a visit in itself. The sauce is not too spicy and the food is always fresh. The pizzas are simply one of the best that Denver has to offer. It is family owned and the ambiance and decor have a family feel to it. It is decorated differently each month with special touches. Due to the family operation, they do close a couple of weeks out of the year for vacations. This is a bummer if you have an Amicis craving during one of those times, as Amici's completely closes down.

Have been going to Amici's for the past 20 years, one of my favorite places to frequent, 5 Years ago would have been a Highly Recommend. I crave their salad/house dressing, the Pastas and Sausage are incredible, and the sauce has great flavor/not overly spiced. However, a little disappointed the last few visits 1) Wasn't crowded (it usually is when we go) and it still took us quite a bit for the seater to acknowledge us to sit us 2) There were several large parties, whom couldn't/wouldn't control their children. The whole meal we and other "adult only" parties were treated to screaming and crying. Realize it is a family restaurant, parent's expectations could be set when they enter the restaurant to take their children out if they meltdown. Again, awesome food, but the consistency of screaming kids being there will probably keep us from going back for a while.

Pros: GREAT Salads

Cons: Loud Kids

I would not recomend this restaurant if you are looking for good Italian food!! The sauce tasted like Ragu and the salad was from a bag. I could have made this at home for much less money and not had to sit in a bad restaurant. My kids liked it because it was loud and they could be too.

PROS: none
CONS: Bland food

My entire family agrees that Amici's has the best pizza and salad in the Denver-Metro area. The restaurant has wonderful homemade Italian dressing which makes their salad, though simple, unforgettable. Like a reviewer before me, we also love to take the salad dressing "to go", although we have been unable to replicate the salad at home (it just tastes so much better at the restaurant). Amici's suprememe pizza is our family favorite and we love to visit the restaurant on Sunday afternoons when you can get a jumbo pizza for the price of a large. Overall, the service is great, the ambiance is good and the restaurant has a friendly, family feel.

Amici's has a wonderful family ambiance when you walk in. The Fanelli family's Matriarch does the monthly decorating creating a cozy, warm place to dine. Although it is pretty busy on weekend nights, the wait isn't too bad. The pizza ia awesome, the pasta is prefect, and the sauces tasty! Highly recommended!!!

AMICI'S ITALIAN SALAD DRESSING IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD. EVERY TIME I GO THERE, I BUY A QUART OR TWO. EVEN WHEN I LIVED OUT OF STATE, WHEN I WAS IN TOWN I WOULD CARRY IT ON THE PLANE WITH ME. IT'S THAT GOOD!!!

This is the worst italian place in Denver! The lasagna was disgusting. The noodles were soggy and over cooked. The sauce is very acidic. The spaghetti was hard and chewy. Even Olive Garden makes better food! If you reall know Italian food, STAY AWAY FROM THIS DUMP!
