Friendly and efficient service. Took the opportunity of having the 3 course Sunday lunch which is very good value but no always available later on an Sunday evening.
Lovely Evening at Amici Forest Hall. Excellent food and excellent service highly recommend. Early Bird Special was excellent value. Staff were friendly . Lovely Evening
We have been going to Amicis now for over 15 years, my husband proposed to me there. We have NEVER had a disappointing meal or service. More of our family members now go regularly too. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.
Three of us had Sunday lunch (3course special) and the food was fantastic. Service was excellent, polite and speedy. One of our party could not finish the main meal as it was so big but the staff wrapped it up to take away plus none of us could eat our dessert, too full but again the staff wrapped it up to take away. First class trip and we will be going back soon. Well done.
Waited for our booked table. The restaurant was very very busy as happy hour. Took half an hour before we got drinks served. I asked for a small wine and received a large one. The wrong starters arrived and were sent back. On a second attempt I received mine and my husbands was not correct. I shared mine while he waited for his. On the third attempt he received the starter he originally asked for. Quality and taste wise the starters were okay - chicken and rice soup and garlic bread with tomato. The main arrived fairly quickly. My pasta dish though was very poor. Lots of pasta, minimal sauce and few green and black olives which were the best thing about it. Husbands pizza was okay. We hadn't been for years and wont be back there in a hurry.
Got seated earlier than table booked for, service very quick and food lovely. Been a while since I've been to Amici's the new decor is very nice.
Amicis has always been good value for pizza or pastas (especially through their happy hour options). My recent visit with 5 other adult family members was no different except I feel there has been an upgrade in the quality of food which is great. I cannot comment on their meat or fish mains but all improvements are welcome. Well done to the friendly staff.
Excellent food (we had a mixture of Greek and Italian) with excellent and friendly service. Very good value for money. You might get lucky on a Sunday evening with the chance to get a "Sunday lunch" but if not there is plenty of other options available on the menu.
I have been several times now for Sunday Lunch and I thoughtley enjoyed it everytime. I went with friends whom had never been before and they to LOVED it to.... clean plates all round. Service is fast and efficient. Price is spot on. Will definitely be back....
We were given a table with a lovely view of the sea and the staff were polite and helpful. The meal was absolutely delicious and the desserts were super and I would rate it a six. We certainly would return as it was exceptional value for money.
We really enjoyed our food as usual!The staff are attentive and very friendly.A couple of us chose the Christmas Dinner Menu which was great value with lots of choice. We will be returning soon as it's a great dining experience.
Very nice food and lovely ambience for a lunch time. Really good service, not intrusive, but attentive. Everyone of my party enjoyed themselves and said that they would like to return. It can't really get better than that........ Thanks Amici's
Food was excellent and inexpensive. The menu was wide ranging with Italian and Greek dishes. Initially difficult to make a choice. Service was very good and staff were pleasant and courteous. I would have no problems recommending.
Service was amazing, food was amazing had a brilliant night celebrating my daughters 8th birthday for a reasonable price. Only thing I seemed to be shouting by the end of meal as it got quite loud.
Had a lovely time with friends and the food was great. Just a shame some people who were asked never turned up for the meal, initially had a table for 8 booked but myself and 3 others showed up.
Meal was nice apart from the profiteroles which were as hard as cannon balls covered in a very thick chocolate sauce that resembled ....well let's say it put me off. I left them and told the waiter and he said that he was sorry I didn't enjoy them and there was no offer of a different sweet or the item being deleted from the bill
Beautiful food, staff were very nice definitely go back for are Christmas meal again loads ov choices to pick from it was excellent we had plenty space to move atmosphere was great
first visit waited ages to get served as restaurant was full and there didnt seem enough staff to cope but second visit not may people in we were served straight away. food lovely staff friendly very reasonable prices
The food was lovely as always and the staff are always kind and professional. I had a tzatziki for my starter but it was too big for me so they offered me it to keep with my main!
Staff were really friendly and welcoming and as a party of 8 we all really enjoyed our visit. Restaurant is very accommodating for disabled visitors. Will be booking again soon.

Very good food and service, not badly priced. Would definitely recommend people to go and will be going again! Overall 6 out of 6 stars
Very attentive with prosecco. Good ok but nowt to shout home about. Good value for money. Was shocked to be told would be £1.20 extra per king prawn so declined.
Went for Sunday lunch. Lovely meal - food was excellent - as usual! Staff were friendly and efficient. Will certainly be going back. Thank you.
A lovely little Italian restaurant in Forest Hall. Fast and efficient service. Pleasant surroundings and delicious food. Been going there for years. We'll be back!!
Good friendly service and good food. Staff were very helpful and the cost was very reasonable. Service for kids was good with good tolerance of them changing minds on orders.
Good service and good value for money. Ordered two spritzers which were mostly soda water (as opposed to lemonade) but they were changed immediately when this was pointed out.
Excellent as usual! Good range of food with Italian and Greek dishes. Quite busy when we arrived at 7.50 but became much quieter by the time we left!
Busy and friendly atmosphere. Food & drink reasonably priced, good choice of menu & quality. Staff welcoming, friendly & not intrusive but attentive & will be returning again.
Enjoyed the meal, nice and relaxed atmosphere. Service was good and a very friendly. Only downside is trying to find parking neat the restaurant. Was a good evening
Tuesday night was very quiet but the service was good and we were ok to just carry on chatting. Not rushed in any way. Good value for money.
Lovely night, lovely atmosphere, great food especially our starters mmmm and attentive staff. . Well priced :) definitely will be back to try other choices from menu
Excellent pizza. Made the most of the 730 finish to the happy hour on a Tuesday. Quiet but still a good atmosphere so an enjoyable experience.
Delicious food and excellent service as always. I have been coming to this restaurant for years and it never fails to impress. Would highly recommend.
very good, had food from the early bird menu £6.95 for 3 courses. Less than £50 for 4 people will definitely go there again soon.
Great service and food , really nice atmosphere .Staff attentive but not over the top .Really busy so shows this is a really popular place.
Very Reasonable prices, tasty food and good atmosphere. We had the early bird (tea-time menu) which was great! £45 for 4 of us and drinks
Very dissapointing visit - the staff were verý friendly and the food was great but we waited over an hour from ordering our food to it arriving. A number of people around us who arrived later were served their food before us. Not great when you have 2 young children with you!
We were slightly late for our reservation but restaurant still accomodate us despite being busy - Happy hour menu really good value, especially for a Saturday
