Amici is a fantastic, family-run trattoria on Lisburn Road in Belfast that serves pizzas, pastas and the best tiramisu you’ll ever taste on this side of the Irish sea... This continental, Italian spot in Botanic has a sizeable menu with some exciting dishes like their Tuscan Chowder comprised of a light fennel and garlic scented tomato sauce, sea bass, red mullet, scampi, squid and mussels, served with warm sourdough bread. Truly a cut above the rest, Amici even has some amazing gluten free options (which is no mean feat for an Italian restaurant!) — with gluten free calamari, gnocchi, steak and multiple dessert options for anyone avoiding pesky gluten. Located just a short walk from the Botanic Gardens, Amici is the ideal location for a nice Sunday lunch after a walk in The Tropical Ravine.
I have been to Amici in Portstewart a few times and it is brilliant. So i was pleasantly surprised to see the one in Belfast is also very good. Quite a bit smaller than Portstewart but the food and sevice is just as good.
Food was great, staff really kind, restaurant is small compared to another but really cosy and cute. Reasonable prices too. Definitely, I will come back! :).
Restaurant was lovely food was great & staff very attentive. Will be visiting again . I got bruschetta for starter & pizza for main though it was bit too hot for me with the chilli flakes but was my mistake for not asking for it to be left off . Service was fantastic
