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.
Lovely restaurant. Autentic italian feel. The food is delicious and very well priced. Children are well catered for. The staff is nice and the service is quick. Good coffee as well.
Small business but lovely, honest food. Staff were so friendly even putting up Alice's (aged 6) drawing!.dont walk past without tasting the freshest of food.
We were greeted immediately, seated promptly and introduced to our options in an informative and polite manner. The atmosphere was welcoming, warmly lit with pleasant music and the glow of conversation. The menu had a good range of options including gluten free starters, main courses, and desserts. We had fried calamari and scampi as starters, and braised beef in red wine and 'tagliate (10oz sliced sirloin beef steak) as main courses, all well presented and prepared. The wine suggestion (red Chianti) was successful and the service impeccable. It was an experience worth sharing. Highly recommended and a place to go back.
