The pizza was OK, service was really bad. We asked for water for our wine, and got a single small glass of lukewarm tapwater. Midway through our meal the condiments, salt and peber were removed from our table and placed on the table of other guests. My plate was removed eventhough my dinner partner wasn't halfway through her meal. . The second she took her last bite, the waiter cleared the table. She hadn't even chewed her food or put her fork down before they started clearing the table. We felt very rushed, even though the restaurant was only half full and overall had a negative experience.

This is our favourite Italian restaurant in Shoreditch by a mile! The food, cocktails and wines are all so delicious. No faults whatsoever... great value for money, friendly staff, good music and never too busy that you go unnoticed. We love it.

Exquisite and authentic Italian food, very friendly service, reasonable price, good location! What else do we want? Highly recommend their Gnocco Fritto, risotto ai frutti di mare, any kind of pizzas, Fiori di Zucca, Coniglio, assorted kinds of dolci, etc. etc. etc. Also, their uniqueness is that they have a wide variety of best dish selection from many different regions of Italy, all of which are very authentic and soul food dishes of each region.

We had pasta and pizza which were both delicious. The roast pork was less well liked. They do also have a good lunchtime offer, but we were not aware of this until our dishes almost arrived. The server offered us coffee and icecream to compensate, which was nice.

Had lovely food on Saturday with 4 friends. Very quiet when we arrived at 6.30 but soon filled up and the atmosphere was good. Efficient service. Good portion sizes for the starters and lots of bread. However, was charged for the first bottle of water which we think was probably just from the tap so make yourself clear on this score.

Nice fresh Italian food, starters are a good size and we were advised correctly to have the small sharing platter for two people. Pasta dishes are homemade and very good but not as big as some other local eateries, that said they will be enough for all but the most hungry. Reasonably priced wines and water is refilled free of charge. The only downside is the big window that allows you to watch the local nightlife (good and bad), so I would say a place to take good friends rather than clients.

Pizza was burnt and tasted like coal, topping was very little, which made it really dry.
Quite disappointing for an italian, maybe they've changed the pizza chefs but they used to be better

This is an authentic Italian eatery with some traditional dishes as well as unusual options on the menu. The food is home cooked and they clearly use fresh seasonal ingredients. It was very good value for money, especially as on Mondays they offer 30% off the whole bill. We were recommended this restaurant by an Italian living in London which says it all!

We left after ten minutes into our main course as I was very disappointed by the whole overall experience. The tables were that close I felt like we was dining with another couple. We was seated right outside the kitchen door this leading to being disturbed constantly by the waiters needing access. I was with my daughter for her 21st birthday. Our main course came and was burnt and that's when I asked for the bill. Also because we didn't drink any alcohol we didn't receive any complimentary water even though we ordered soft drinks. To pay a service charge of 12 percent after our experience i thought was wrong but still paid. I was in London for a few days and saw this resteraunt as a perfect choice to celebrate my daughter's birthday, I was left severely disappointed.

Outstanding meal, service and ambience. This is my 6th or 7th time at the restaurant. I try to make it back to Amici every time I am visiting London. It has become a "go to" place to impress others, knowing that the food is consistently incredible and the service impeccable. I have had business dinners, met friends for a fun meal and just a casual dinner there with my family. for all occasions, it worked very well!

Food was honest and home made, the "Elephant's Ear" veal was... gigantic! Service was very friendly and accomodating as I showed up 40 min late!
Also easily wheelchair accessible.
