I am quite certain you have either tried Amici or heard of its modern take on Italian cuisine. Today it has branches on key areas of the Metro, after being around for more than 10 years. You can expect fairly priced quality dishes from their own versions of pizza, pasta, chicken and Italian gelato.

Let me give you a brief history of how this all started. The first ever branch was actually inside the boundaries of a school, also in Makati, then called Amici Di Don Bosco. The word of good Italian got out too quickly and people from all walks of life started flocking Don Bosco to eat. That once a humble space opened up its menu to the outside. The Moran family is currently at the helm, and Chef Paolo continues to innovate new products for you and me.

Chef Paolo has restaurant experience in both Florence and Sicily and has been immersed in true Italian cooking. And on this recent invite, he together with brother Philip, launched a new set of modern Italian pizza and antipasti. It is yet another offering coming from their recent 10th year anniversary.

For starters, there’s the Trio Platter (Php 525). It was such a festive and hearty plate full of Mozzarella Frito, Chicken Tenders, and Italian Chips with sauces. Finally, an appetizer that can be shared with an audience of different preferences. This plate is value for money, folks!

On to the pizzas! First is the IL Supremo! (Php 445). If you want your pie to have possibly everything- this is the one for you. Every bite will give you the savory goodness of Italian sausage, ham, pepperoni, mushrooms, bell pepper, onions, black olives, anchovies, mozzarella, and the tingling sensation of parmesan cheese.

Next on the list is a treat for meat and spicy food enthusiasts. Carne Fuego (Php 475) is an overloaded fiery all-meat pizza. Feel the kick of Italian sausage, bacon, pepperoni, ham altogether in one go. For an adventurous blend, I suggest Honey Sriracha Chicken (Php 438), a subtly explosive pie with shredded chicken in honey butter and sriracha. It gives you that sweet-spicy zing and heightened taste of blue cheese sauce.

Last but not the least is the Smoked BBQ Pork (Php 455). It may look a little plain compared to the other ones but this will delight you in soft pulled pork in hickory BBQ sauce, topped with fresh onions and served with chopped lettuce tossed in Caesar dressing.

For the mains, we also got to have Pollo Arrostito (Php 340 half/ Php 655 whole). According to Philip, this dish continues to be popular, it is a finger licking, flavorful to the bones baked rosemary chicken. It comes with a side of fresh buttered vegetables, a fit to groups of friends and family. For those who want it a little hot, they also have the Honey-Sriracha Chicken (Php 438) now on the menu!

Of course, every good meal finishes with dessert. Cara Mia Gelateria presents the Coffee Honeycomb (Php 110 slice / Php 745 whole). This hits the spot, with a series of amazing textures and taste all in one big bite. It is light chocolate chiffon drizzled with chocolate fudge sauce layered with coffee and chocolate cream, topped with coffee honeycomb crunch. This is was unconventionally good and quite addictive!

Is your mouth watering yet? If this article made you crave for Amici’s new offerings, you can try them on your own. I know I will soon with my other foodie friends!

The only positive thing is the place is spacious. Service sucks. I asked the waiter for their bestseller when it comes to tomato based pasta and he told me to try Spaghetti Bolognese. I waited for my order for more than 30 MINUTES. FOR A SPAGHETTI. When the food came, though the serving is big, the taste is not good. I was very disappointed with the taste knowing that it costed me P375 including the service charge. I believe they have better pastas but since this is my first time and I was utterly disappointed, I am never going back. Didn't even finish my food. Ravioli is much, much better.

The food is great but the service is not... or na timing lang talaga sa amin na nagkamali sila at na una pang dumating ang food ng kabilang table... HANGRY kana nga delayed pa ang food mo lalong uminit ulo ko...
After several years of not eating here parang matatagalan ulit akong babalik dito. Hopefully other branches have much better service.

Had dessert here with friends. Ordered 2 Gelato cakes for sharing. Mango Passion, so yummy. I think you can never go wrong with something with ripe mango 128523 The other one is Rouge which is more cakey than of ice cream but good as well. Sulit for the price of P160 each.

It's been a while since I visited this place. Ordered the spaghetti ai Tesori del Mare, a mildly spicy feast of spaghetti tossed in fresh tomatoes, scalloos, clams, mussels and chili oil. Parmigiano pizza al pesto, oarmesan coated pizza crust served with a sude of scrumptious pesto sauce. hmmm Loved it.

Had their supposedly 'creamy' spaghetti ala carbonara and it really felt like there's no sauce at all. It's like I'm eating spaghetti with mushed-up scrambled eggs. I had them before so I have comparison. And the first time I had it, my experience was way better. And the pasta... The pasta was not al dente. I really expected a lot from Amici and for the price, it's not worth it at all. I will always be a fan of their cakes though.

Had the second best Pistachio gelato 128154

Ang dull ng color but super creamy nya and the nuts are well-grinded. But I think it would be great if at least one whole pistachio nut is present 128513

Will definitely go back to try other flavors. Maybe that macadamia one 127792
