If you love Mojitos, drink up here! I tried Mojitos all around Santa Teresa and Amici did a bang up job! Their pizza was pretty good too. We got a Margarita pizza, which in Costa Rica pretty much just means cheese pizza. I still miss Basta Pasta though, they were just previous to Amici. They had the best Tuna Burger... More

We got a beef carpaccio for entrance and share a carbonara spaghetti, both were well but for the reviews we read the meal was very average, not the memorable experience that we expected it to be.

The place is nice, great music, good service, but above all the pizza is awesome!!! We order 2 pizzas for 3 people, more than plenty. Fresh ingredients and a perfect size makes it a great pizza place.

We went here for pizza and cocktails one night. The food was great, but the mojito slushy was to die for. A little bit pricey, but not much more than most places of similar quality and experience.

Very accommodating and good service. I ordered the pesto pasta without cheese and my partner ordered a veggie pizza. Both were excellent. I would recommend this place for sure :)

Decided to pop down for dinner one night and was glad I did. The pizza was terrific. Classic Neapolitan style - thin crust and not smothered in sauce and cheese. The pizza was large and like any truly good pizza, tasted just as good the following day. I had the amici pizza (Bianco pizza) and was amazing. I went early... More

We ordered 4 pizzas for takeout. The crust was thin and incredibly fresh. The pizza is handmade and you can taste it. We also had 2 salads with dressing on the side. Everything was perfect.

Nice Italian Restaurant in Santa Teresa on Main Street. The owner is a real Italian from North Italy, pizza and pasta are very authentic. The pizza is made in an original oven, great. Also the size.

We just finished eating our pizza and would say it definitely did not meet our expectations. First, we ordered delivery and were told it would take 20 minutes and it took 65 minutes. Second, the toppings were flavourless and scarce. On a few slices of the Hawaiian, there was not even any ham. I understand that traditional Italian pizza is... More
