I have been searching for nice bread Australian style for two and a half years in America. Finally Amici delivered. Thank you for great food and fitting us in at mid afternoon for lunch.

We didn't care for anything about the place. It's very loud, seems dirty inside, service was poor... our waiter disappeared and eventually other staff members caught on and continued our service between them. The sauce was basically just stewed tomatoes. The bread was very good...More

We dined at Amici with friends and enjoyed great Italian food and a pleasant atmosphere for visiting. I especially enjoyed the pasta dish with artichokes and chicken. My husband thought the Lasagna delicious. The prices are mid-range, portions generous enough and good service.

After seeing the reviews we decided to try it. The stuffed breadsticks were very plain and neither my husband or I cared for the red sauce on our pasta. Server was very attentive but we won't be back.

This is a small Italian restaurant located in Old Louisville. The restaurant is small with an area for outside seating. Food was really good and authentic. Bread was delish.

Amici's is on my favorites list. I love the atmosphere food and drinks. Especially in nice weather when you can sit outside. Perfect date night.

A rather heavy array for lunch, but it was cold outside...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! I arrived early while the place was virtually empty, so chatted with the server, then the owner. Both were informative and delightful. Yes, empty then but at...More

Went to dinner with four friends who had been here and loved it. It is a casual, comfortable place with a friendly vibe. Wine prices are reasonable so three thumbs up for that! :/ We tried the artichoke fritti and bruschetta. Very generous portion of...More

I have been there with an 8 year old. They didn't have a children's menu but the portions were huge and we shared. Didn't ask for a smaller portion or anything so I don't know if they would do that or not.
