We were here to celebrate a friend’s birthday and I’m not at all impressed by the quality of food served despite the numerous raving reviews. Overall, we feel that Amici is a fine-dining wannabe (as evident from the minute portions and pricy menu) but lacked the quality and service standards. Grilled green shell lobster (300-400gms) served with pasta ($43.90++)The lobster was somewhat overcooked as the flesh was dry and tough. Thankfully, the pasta was quite flavourful and delicious, something to be expected of Italian restaurants, I suppose ;) Mixed Grill Platter ($39.90++)The portion of this grilled platter – consisting of grilled prawns, Norwegian salmon and chicken thigh – was considerable small given that it was supposed to be good enough for 2 pax sharing. Again, I find that their seafood tend to be overcooked, resulting in a dry and tough texture. The slightly sour tomato base sauce was appetising and enhanced the overall flavour of this otherwise light dish. Mixed Meat Platter ($43.90++)Consisting of lamb rack, tenderloin and chicken thigh, this mixed meat grill was much better than its seafood counterpart. The meat was succulent and tender, especially the beef tenderloin. The accompanying truffle red wine sauce and chef special dip is a must try as it blended very well with the slightly charred meats. Oven-baked black cod fillet ($36.90++) A very light dish that lacked the distinctive buttery herb fragrance and zesty salsa flavours we were expecting. Thankfully, the fish was nicely prepared and not overcooked. The texture was soft and had retained the natural moisture of the meat. Grilled beef tenderloin (200gm) ($39.90++)The best dish we had this afternoon. The beef was rich in flavour and chewy in texture. Overall, Amici seemed to fare better in their meats compared to the seafood dishes. At these prices, there are definitely better alternatives in the immediate vicinity of Holland Village. continue reading

Came here with a girlfriend of mine because Park was closed (doh!). Amici had long been on my list of must-try's and since everyone says it's good, I thought to myself: "Why not?"We had the sauteed mushrooms for starters. This was good but I think mushrooms are always a safe choice. Mushrooms already have this irresistible umami-ness so you can't really go wrong preparing it or eating it.As for the mains, initially I wanted Vongole but since it was sold out, both of us chose a carbonara-type dish. My friend had the risotto while I had the pasta. I was a little disappointed at how average the pasta was. It was a little heavier than usual (some may like it), but unfortunately, it didn't hit the spot for me. As for my friend, she said the risotto was just too "gelat". We noticed everyone else ordering seafood/tomato-based pasta and they all smelled really good so.. perhaps we made the wrong choice. I still trust other Italian eateries for great food. For now, just not Amici. continue reading

I went to the restaurant wanting to have their tortellini, but was told that it was sold out for the day, and the waitress recommended, Fettuccine alla russa. Generous serving of smoked salmon with caviar with thick vodka cream sauce. Its so delicious that I cant help but to think that the serving is too small! I have been to amici a few times over the years, and I cant help but to notice the drastic increase in price. At least a $5 hike in my favorite, Tortellini con prosciutto e funghi. The website no longer show the accurate price. For the price that it charge, they could well afford a renovation, which in my opinion, is really required. Their leather seats are all cracked, and the shop looks old and worn-down. The look of the restaurant is not fitting for the food, and the price. continue reading

ate there many times especially when I got the discount card. Bought the discount card twice, get to enjoy their chocolate cake. both different for the cards I got. Ate there with boyfriend and also brought my family there to celebrate birthday. Their food is expensive but with the discount cards, is worthwhile. the spaghetti (clayfish spaghetti) and pizza taste very nice that everytime that I go back, I will eat those food. continue reading

DINNER THURSDAY was spent at this joint in Holland Village.. The food was hmmmm well i had lasagne and friends had some Pasta. IT was tasty enough for me. I liked the rich creamy flavour in the lasagne and the tomato paste was really well done not the sourish flavour. I would recommend this place for a date! but other than that for a friend get together and a long chat it was also good as it was not too crowded . I would go again continue reading
