Amici Cafe is a nice homecook-style Italian restaurant in Louisville. There are a large variety of pizza and pasta options. One of my favorites is the shrimp and polenta which which is crispy on the outside and moist in the inside. Service is friendly and attentive. Parking is limited to a few spots by the restaurant and street parking. Prices... More

Amici is an old fashion checkered cloth 1950's type neighborhood restaurant in Old Louisville. The menu is extensive, the quantities are very large, and the prices are reasonable! What a combination. On Tuesday's bottled wine is half price! We love Italian Food and eat out two or three times even week. So over the years we have tried almost all... More

Food was fair, decent variety. Very casual and would be fine for children. Outdoor patio looked nice but was fully occupied when we were there. Strangely, bread doesn't come with your meal, what is spaghetti without bread? For a small cost you can pay for bread.

Amici was near our B&B. It's a nice restaurant, fairly small, cozy. There was a large group there when we stopped so it was too loud for us, but I think that may not be an every day event. I had the lasagna, I did not care for it, but that is more my taste than the cooking. The bread... More

We had stopped down the road the the restaurant called Buck's. We watched the woman manager (blond hair--50 years old?) walk around the dining area for about 10 minutes. She eventually dropped a whole plate of food and made her way up front. There were 5-6 empty and clean tables open. She told us that it'd be another 10 minutes.... More

Enjoyed dinnerl here during our overnight in Louisville. The neighborhood was not that busy at the time we visited, so we were initially the only ones in the restaurant. Our waitress was pleasant and very helpful when it came to avoiding menu items for my wife's allergies. The cheese stuffed breadsticks were delicious. We had the blushing florentine ravioli and...

This is a nice, casual place for great food. Wait staff is very nice. This is just around the corner from Old Louisille and is a great stop before Shakepeare in the Park! Menu offers lots of variety and the portions are generous! There is an outdoor patio that is secluded from the road, plenty of indoor seating and also... More
