Old world Italian cooking doesn’t get better than this! There is something about Amici that keeps regulars and foodies happy. Perhaps it is their mouthwatering menu featuring beautifully made appetizers, hearty pastas, and succulent seafood. Or, maybe it is their first-class service and friendly staff. Either way, this romantic spot will have you coming back for more!
Amici’s large menu features old world Italian dishes that focus on fresh ingredients and homemade sauces. On the appetizer menu, discover gourmet salads brimming with roasted almonds, fresh goat cheese, and marinated wild mushrooms drizzled with apple cider vinaigrette. For an exotic treat, try the prawn and papaya salad served on organic mixed greens. Pan-seared prawn cakes served with sun dried tomato aioli are perfect for sharing along with the grilled calamari steaks drizzled with olive oil.
Hearty pastas topped with delicately made sauces are this restaurant’s claim to fame. More than a dozen mouthwatering pastas make deciding what to devour the most difficult part. Among the standouts is the linguine with minced chicken breast, crushed pink peppercorns, chilies and black beans. Or, how about the penne decadently topped with smoked BC salmon in an avocado cream sauce? A tantalizing selection of seafood and meat dishes hit home thanks to those little extra touches. Pan seared pistachio crusted trout tastes divine with Frangelico brown butter shallow sauce. Roasted duck gets saucy with sun dried cherry port and vinegar sauce. Veal scaloppini, halibut crusted with parmesan, and roasted rack of lamb atop Muscat raisins complete a fantastic menu.
