We have been going here for years! The restaurant is beautiful great atmosphere and good service. All the classics are wonderful. Just to be clear, niles is full of old people who complain about everything. Take your spouse here on a date. You won't be disappointed.

Went out to dinner with the family. It was a wonderful evening with really good company BUT the food and service at this place was bad. Really bad, portions were really small and sad. We ordered fish pasta that had very little fish that were not fresh. My young daughter ordered ravioli that were serviced cold and with the sauce... More

Amici's has a nice bar and happy hour. We dined in a spacious booth in the bar area. The server was polite and attentive and the meals were excellent. My friend and I had the meat ravioli which came with either minnestrone ( which was hot and filled with vegetables), and the meat ravioli. Warm crusty Italian bread was also... More

Took 45 minutes to get our meals out, 2 were kid meals and 4 entrees. Not waitress' fault. $9.50 for a kids spaghetti and meatball! 8.95 for chicken fingers and fries. That's all. Terrible marinara. Steak and mussels ok. Second time here. Ok service. Really expected homemade. Too many good places around here to try rather than come back.

Decent Italian food with reasonable price tag if your on a date I suggest asking for a table by the fireplace. Cozy little spot quth a very home like feel to it service is pretty good unless you go when they are completely empty.

Went for lunch and ate an antipasto salad and spaghetti and meatballs. The salad had wilted lettuce and the spaghetti sauce tasted like it came out of a jar and the meatballs were barely warm with warm sauce thrown on it in an attempt to warm it up. I told the server about it and was told that's the way... More

Service can be iffy and food is rather expensive. We were charged for every soda and not told ahead of time but the waitress was right there to keep refilling the kids drinks

We had tried this restaurant last month and it was fantastic. So, after picking up my wife from O'Hare Airport, we stopped by again hoping for a great meal. This time, it was like night and day from our last visit. The bread that came was rock hard...literally! After ordering 2 glasses of wine, it came with spilled wine on... More

I have driven by this restaurant hundreds of times and never thought to stop by. Last night, after seeing it again, I thought, why not? This is a cozy family Italian restaurant that has great food. The marinara sauce on their spaghetti is to die for. The Italian sausage was so good, we ordered an extra one to take home.... More

In an area loaded with excellent Italian restaurants, Amici is far from the top. The decor is very attractive, reminiscent of a rustic Italian tavola. But the food is very "ordinary": minestrone soup had far more pasta than vegetables. Tilapia special was not bad, but not special either. Menu has all the standard fare but little out of the "ordinary."... More
