Classic Italian at Amici




Amici has been on my must-visit list for quite a long time and it was only recently that I crossed it out my ever-growing list.

As everyone knows, Amici was founded by a priest from Don Bosco Makati. What started as a small canteen is now an Italian restaurant chain with several branches all over the metro. Amici also supports Tuloy Foundation, which is also founded by a priest from Don Bosco Makati.

With my good friend and fellow foodie KC, we went to their SM Megamall branch for dinner.

We started with pasta, Lasagna Al Ragu (Php 298).

Lasagna Al Ragu

The Lasagna Al Ragu is good for sharing (but I could finish one serving alone). It was soooo cheesy, I like it. However, it could use more ground meat.

Amici is also known for their wooden brick-oven pizzas and we didn't miss trying one of the favorites, Al Quattro Formaggi (Php 356).

Though I'm more into thin crust pizzas, I would give exception to Amici pizzas. The burn marks in the pizza crust just made it more appealing and seriously, it was really, really yummy!

We also ordered a main dish, Pollo Arrostito (Php 296).

The dish is Baked Rosemary Half Chicken with veggies. I really loved this dish! I just love the flavor from the rosemary that I wish the rosemary taste is a little bit stronger.

My dinner at Amici wouldn't be complete if I wouldn't try their Gelato Cakes. KC and I shared a slice of Banana Blast (Php 122). I also had a cup of Latte (Php 75).

The Banana Blast is banana, strawberry and chocolate gelato on chocolate flavored crust. Basing on the name, I was expecting a classic banana flavor, but the strawberry flavor dominates the gelato cake.

I was surprised on how affordable the dishes in Amici are. I'd love to try the other pasta and pizza dishes, and of course the gelatos. I'd probably bring my family here. The kids would love the gelato cakes.

  2. I am yet to meet a thick-crust pizza that I can stomach. The Al Quattro Formaggi might just be it.
