I took the family there for father's day and the staff were great and the food was well prepared with a wonderful presentation. I will recommend Amici for casual as well as formal events.

Great spot away from the crowded areas of Beverly Hills! Love the outdoor seating, nice and quiet even though it's right off of Santa Monica Blvd. Service was good, however the wait for our drinks was long because the first two we ordered were unavailable. Third time's a charm! Food was delicious. I ordered the arugula salad with salmon - it was a little lighter than I expected (not filling) but I enjoyed it. Lots of street parking available. Would definitely recommend and would dine here again.

Cafe Amici has been a family favorite for years. We've always preferred the patio because the inside of the restaurant wasn't particularly appealing. Maybe I just hadn't noticed changes in recent years, but this time I found it charming & we were delighted with our indoor table. Our service with Sonny couldn't have been better. Our party was 3 old friends who wanted to catch up. We could easily do so w/o yelling over background noise. The food was delicious, particularly the beet salad. If you like beets, you must order this. We loved the chocolate chip cookies & the chocolate cake. A good evening!

Great little gem with fabulous food, service in what you would expect in a 5 star casual upscale neighborhood restaurant. This all came with a cost, but being the first time back in several years they made us feel like were total regulars. You can eat indoors and there are two patios. True Italian experience only drawback a bit on the pricey side.

The food was delicious but it took forever to come out. The service was not great at all, items were forgotten. Even getting a drink took too long. The food was really great though so I did feel it was worth it and the place was cute, so if you don't mind waiting 45 mins for your drink and are not in a rush at all this is the place for you.

My wife and I met some friends for dinner. We shared a margarita pizza which was excellent. We each had a mista salad, again excellent. We shared a pounded chicken Marsala which was also excellent.

Our friends shared a grilled calamari over salad, also excellent.

An extensive wine list with wonderful wines by the glass.

Our server always came back to ask if we needed anything else without being overbearing.

The owner was gracious and welcoming.

A neighborhood gem

My husband and I loved Café Amici. It is an adorable cozy restaurant that offers inside or patio seating. Café Amici is located across the street from the Troubadour so it made it very convenient for us to have dinner before the show. We received outstanding service, the food was delicious, and the wine is affordable. The next time we are in town, we plan on dining there!

Generally, very pleasant and good food. My issue was the waiter. I really don't understand how he could recommend both a wine and a pasta there were double the price of the ones is asked about without mentioning a price. The $48+ bowl of pasta with truffle was sold to my 14 year old son.

Cafe Amici is a Beverly Hills neighborhood favorite. Located in the Beverly Terrace hotel. Classic, and charming. It sits on a street with potted trees for privacy. An out of the way place sorta, that if you aren't looking for it or happen by, you may never see it. Food is always very good. The place is quite small which is why it is so desired and has lasted. Fireplace ambience inside, and out door seating. Cozy and romantic. A little rough around the edges, but again,part of the charm.

We went for a Valentine’s Day dinner and it was wonderful. I was not aware of a fixed menu that night but nevertheless everything was wonderful. The service was the perfect balance between attentive and relaxed. Each of the four courses was prepared exquisitely along with a great selection of wine. We sat out on one of two patios that are lined with heaters for a cool night and it was tranquil to say the least. If you are looking for a nice night out somewhere that feels more like a small cafe in Italy rather than a huge restaurant in LA, then this is the place for you.

I really like this restaurant, it's in my neighborhood, the food is consistently good and so is the service. The only reason I didn't give the "Overall" experience 5 stars is because it was prix fixe and they didn't reveal that on their OpenTable page, or website when every other restaurant that I was looking to did. I don't like prix fix meals, especially at restaurants that I frequent and like certain items on the menu. I also always end up wasting food because it's just too much for me and my husband to eat. All in all the food was very good, but I could barely eat 1/4 of everything past the first course. I do recommend this restaurant, but they really must declare on their website and their OpenTable page when they are only serving prix fixe dinners.

Dining at Amici is like a mini vacation at a trattoria in Southern Italy. Beautiful, simple food. Beautiful rustic setting. We have eaten inside as well as on the lovely patio and enjoyed both experiences. Make sure you ask the chef about the ancient prison he owns in Tuscany!

Had not been to Amici in several years and went with another couple who encouraged us to try. It has been totally redone and refreshed inside and out, and the food was amazing. We liked it so much that we returned again with another couple for the second week in a row, who like us used to go, but had not gone for several years. They loved it and we will all be going back. Great salads, pastas and fish - the Sea Bream/Orata in Italian was delicious (I had two weeks in a row!)and tonight I started with the vegetarian broccoli soup which was also great! The artichoke salad was also a hit with my husband and our friends.
If you haven’t tried in awhile. Add it to your list. You will have a lovely dinner and the new owner is delightful.

A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience from start to finish. The owner/manager, Emanuela, warmly greeted us and showed us to our table on the outdoor patio. We were promptly offered water and brought bread and menus. Both Emanuela and Victor, our server, waited on us, explaining the specials and offering suggestions but they were never overbearing, condescending or too invasive. They had an equal balance of being friendly and funny yet retaining a high level of professionalism. The food was fresh and delicious - on par with other West Hollywood italian restaurants we've experienced but at a more reasonable price-point. It's a small restaurant but you don't feel like you are on top of other guests. Nice jazz music sets a relaxed tone for dinner. It's a perfect spot for a date or small group because it's not too loud and they won't rush you out the door. We look forward to coming back again and making this a regular venue whenever we are in the area
