I must say, I never expected to find such an excellent, authentic Italian restaurant in Carytown. I was born & raised in N.Y. by a classic N.Y Italian family, who's favorite past-time is eating, so I consider my stanards to be pretty

My family and I have been dinning at Amici since their beginning. It has been a excellent change from the standard Italian food. Love what they do with seafood, especially the salmon. I always like to try the specials. My wife has to get

I have eaten there several times as I have lived within walking distance. I have never had a single bite at this restaurant which I would consider average.

Its only been 2 weeks since I have come back to Richmond from Villa delle Fornaci in Rome, and it is as genuine as you will experience here (though it isnt closed between 2pm and 7pm).

When you go, get the 6 course meal ($48 per person I think), and get a bottle of wine. Dont expect to be rushed your food. Its not the olive garden, its more traditional Italian paced, where the meal is the nights entertainment. After dessert, when you think your going to explode from all the food, get some grappa, its a digestivo, and is good for stomach.

If you want fast service, hot buttery prefrozen bread sticks, and egg noodles with ketchup and garlic salt... go to olive garden. Im going back to amici, getting my 6 course meal, and getting surprised by the delicious meal the chef created for me, and I'll be delighted as the waiter explains the amazing things Im tasing.

Pros: The entire experience

Cons: I dont get to go enough

We had dinner at Amici in a large group recently and the food went from average, to bad, to terrible. The service was sub-par with the waiters carrying around sarcastic attitudes all night and the food being some of the worst I've experienced. Avoid the steak, pasta, and the panna cotta (sp?). Avoid at all costs.

I've eaten here numerous times and have not once had a bad meal. I highly recommend the tasting dinner if you have time, the chef is very good at matching courses to make outstanding dinners.

This place is horrible. On our last 2 visits saw an older italian man who I am assuming is the owner yelling at the employees while this one lady sat behind the bar doing absolutely nothing but walk in circles and order the other employees around. This ruins an experience, I don't care how good or authentic they claim the food to be. I wouldn't go back again and will tell everyone I know to stay away, I do not feel that people who treat their bread and butter, their employees, this way deserve to be in business.

Quite possibly one of the best Italian resturants in Virginia. They offer traditional Italian fare along with a grand atmosphere. Perfect for a date or for a few drinks with your collegues after work. I loved eating on the heated patio and was impressed with their wine selection. You can't go wrong anytime you visit here, in the heart of Carytown - along side the best shops in the city.

Pros: Excellent food, Excellent service, Excellent location

I think the same people that own La Grotta also own this Italian restaurant. For some reason, the food tastes better at La Grotta. Ambience is a little better here I think. Can't lose with either one. Skip Cafe De Annoying and come here or La Grotta.

I've had great Italian food, and this is not it! First, our server was very short with us, and forgot that we existed, even if we asked for something. When our food came, my dad had asked if he could have chicken on his pasta, and it arrived without. The waiter said that the only chicken the kitchen had was premade for another dish. So the food isn't even made as you order it, yet it takes forever?? And it was awful. I couldn't finish mine, and I'm not a picky eater. Go to La Grotta or Chianti instead! I will never go back here!

What can I say, INCREDIBLE! From the service to the food. Having lived in Jersey for a year and being spolied with trips to Little Italy, its impossible to give any place a 10, but this place comes oh so close. Sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful bottle of Merlot along with out dinner (linguine with crab and asparagus and a perfect salmon dish). Having made some rounds in Richmond and the outskirts this place is hands down the best around. Even with a $35 bottle of wine, the tap was $100 with the tip...now if only I coould live without the wine and its an inexpesive date...naw, well worth every dime!
