Amici – Dinner

I’ve been to Amici 3 times and sadly, not all 3 visits were pleasant. I wouldn’t classify this restaurant as a posh restaurant but neither is it casual. It’s like, it’s trying to have a classy image but they’re still not there yet. It is of high importance to choose the right seat when you’re there. there’s 2 sections to this restaurant which I will call the front and the back. Do sit in the front, where the main entrance is. At the back, it is crammed, greasy (due to open concept kitchen), and noisy (due to faulty air con). The seats at the back are 100% unpleasant.

They often have promotions which can be up to 50% off the total bill. You have to buy vouchers online to enjoy this.

The bread. It was good! Served warm, crispy on the outside, fluffy inside, just like how it should be.

Bruschetta

Insalta italiana

Crayfish & assorted seafood with linguine served in spicy tomato basil sauce

Grilled green shell lobster

I ordered this and I liked it! I’m quite new to eating lobsters so I can’t provide much advice.

Cappuccino cake with ice cream

This actually turned out to be most outstanding than the tiramisu

Tiramisu

This was supposed to be their signature dish but I felt that it wasn’t as good as the previous time I tried it. The fingers were oversoaked and the alcohol taste was overpowering.

Escargot. This was good.

Fresh Oysters were fresh!

Baked Oysters. Not as good as the fresh oysters.

Rocket and parma ham pizza! This was outstanding. Rocket salad and parma him pizza became my favourite pizza toppings after trying this.

Lasagne. Not bad, but nothing crave worthy.

Tiramisu

Their famous tiramisu didn’t disappoint the fingers were evenly soaked and it wasn’t too wet.
