Brandon was the absolute BEST waiter. He made the best suggestions when we couldn’t decide. The food was phenomenal, as were the drinks. We showed up extremely early and were still able to be seated right away.

Every aspect was exceptional, from cocktails through appetizers to entrees. Even the simplest side dishes have subtle tweaks that elevate them to extraordinary.

The food was delicious and tasty. The price was very reasonable. The atmosphere was energized but not overwhelming. This is a truly tasty restaurant that I will definitely return to.

The food was excellent, but you had to chose carefully to get the best dishes. We had the burrata with truffles, Brussel sprout salad with hazelnut and cipolini, and mortadella and veal meatballs. Yum! All delicious. We enjoyed it a good Nero d’Avola and finished with Nonna’s chocolate cake which too was very good.

They did not have enough servers, unfortunately, so service suffered. And everything was very overpriced.

Good experience but will likely not return.

Food and service great from start to finish. Portion sizes were more than adequate. The octopus appetizer was delicious, with ample amount of octopus, as was the sausage pasta. The server was knowledgeable about the dishes and quite attentive. We had the two flavor gelato dessert that was tasty and just the right finish. Everybody was friendly and helpful. I’d go back again

Been here before and it was much better. I know it was Valentines Day which is amateur night but they jammed many tables together within inches of each other. Money grab. And the service was terrible. Also, the supposed entertainment of a jazz band took over an hour break right in the middle of the evening. On top of all that, the limited fixed menu was significantly marked up from normal menu prices.

I have been to L'Amico many times with friends and business associates. Up until this most recent visit, I have been impressed with the food and the space. This trip was very different, and therefore, worthy of note. I ordered the roast chicken entree, usually delicious. It was dry and burnt on one side. The bed of broccoli rabe upon which the chicken sat was burnt to a crisp and inedible. Coffee was served cold, but the wait staff was quick to replace it with a steaming cup. The noise level was deafening. My dinner companion seemed happy with her meal, so calling over the wait staff to complain about the food and having to shout to be heard over the noise was not worth it. I left as quickly as was seemly, vowing never to return. Shame, I had really liked it. I had filled out the comment card at the restaurant and I can only assume that management read it right away, as I received at least three frantic calls to my cell from the restaurant that night, but I was too annoyed to answer the calls. At least they take the comment cards seriously.

After two years I visited L’Amico again. Price is not bad. Tastes good. But each table is too close so noisy a bit.
