We had a 6:30pm reservation tonite for 5 to celebrate my wife's and son's birthday. We arrived at 6:25 and were sat immediately. The dining room was probably half full, 2 servers on and a hostess and ...another girl who seemed to be running food and helping out. First let me say the food was good. I enjoyed my angelhair pasta with sauce. BUT, the food wasn't enough too overcome the slow service. And while apologetic I watched 2 other parties come in after us and leave before us. I've worked in and managed restaurants before so I understand the struggle BUT...No one let us know there could be a delay, then there were the people who sat after us and left before us, and at one point the older woman behind the bar offered to get us a round of drinks but they never came. And at these price I expect service to be on point. If it can't be timely then talk to me, buy me a drink, do something but don't just let me sit there and think I should be grateful. I could spend my money anywhere and I chose you. Show me that I made the right choice. 5 entrees, 2 appetizers, 6 drinks, about $200 and you can't make us feel special? This is not our first time here. I started coming before the remodel about 20 years ago. We stopped coming for just this reason. Slow service after we had reservations. Last time we came for dinner was 2 years ago and no change. This was the last time. Too many choices in this town with over the top service. Your problems in the BOH shouldn't be my problems. Communication is a key. You had 2 larger parties? Someone should have said it will take a little longer instead of your server trying to explain to me how the timing a dinner works.

Update 11/17/17
The owner called me three days after this incident and was apologetic and indicated that he was very upset to hear about our experience. .He made no excuses and did not blame anyone for our experience but rather invited us back and sent us a generous gift certificate. We have not had an opportunity to revisit yet but look forward to doing so as our food was awesome the night we went. Thank you so much for your outstanding customer service

Apart from the food being delicious, I was the only one in our party that was dairy free (wow yes at an Italian restaurant). Our server BRANDY was very knowledgeable & accommodating & being every meal... being made from scratch I was able to enjoy a dairy free entree..she also responded immediately when our 5 mth old baby did a big “blast” & needed to be breastfed & made quick accommodations at the employee room fluster free!!

I highly recommend this restaurant, I personally had never been here prior to Friday. We had a loved one pass and the owner and staff were nothing but accommodating, pleasant and treated us like despite the difficult timing of the services. This was a wonderful experience for our family and we can't say enough about the food and the service. You have a lifetime customer in me!! Thank you. See More

Cannot recommend Amici more for a fantastic Italian meal and quick service. The manicotti and stuffed hot pepper risotto are the best in Buffalo!

Ace will take care of you!

I was so excited about the spaghetti when I got my chicken Parm but it was a very small amount of spaghetti that came with it very disappointed If u r paying $20 for chicken Parm you should get more ...then a fistfu� spaghetti isn't that much to make.. I was disappointed there sauce was a little too salty this time Waitress was very nice.. See More

We waited 20 minutes for our order to be taken, then another hour to get our food. They forgot our appetizer, but did give us it to go for free so that was nice. My food didn't taste right, but else I was with loved their food, so that's good. I understand it was a busy night, it was Father's fast, but there was no communication from the waitress regarding the wait. See More

One of the finest Restaurants in WNY. As Italian Restaurants go authenticity is key and Amici has it.

They should learn that all the meals should be served together not individually every 5mins. Meal was good but waitress was rude and probably won't be going back anytime soon

We had an awful experience at Amici's last night. I can't speak to the food, as we never ate (although it did smell amazing in the restaurant). My fiancé and I decided to check out this restaurant as's right down the street from our house and had good reviews. We made as reservation on Open Table for 7, only to arrive and be told by the hostess that our reservation was not listed. She instead stated we could put our name on the list and we would be called in probably 20 min. We decided to wait, and while waiting noticed that the many people I. Front of us were upset. After speaking to one (another lady who ALSO had a reservation that was "lost" and had waited 50 min for a table), we became nervous. People were really upset, especially since there were several open tables at the time that were not being utilized. After waiting 30 min, my fiancé an I left.

I don't think we will be back, even though as I stated before- the place looked great and smelled amazing. I get the feeling it is poorly run, from both the fact that they lost our reservation to the fact that so many other customers in front of us were clearly so unhappy, to the fact that on a busy Saturday night with 15+ customers waiting, their table turnover was so poor. If you want to try it out, I would do so at your own risk.

We usually choose Amici Ristorante as one of our "Go-To" stops during Restaurnat Week.
The food is always wonderful and the portions, in the past, have been generous.
Tonight we had two entrees which ...were skimpy at best.
I ordered the combo platter: Chicken Parm, Eggplant Parm and Pene Pasta. I barely had any eggplant on the plate.
Even the portion of pene pasta which came with the meal was sparse.
Cannot say a bad word about the quality of the food, or the nice service - but two of us were both disappointed in the portion size
this time around.
My question: Is this the size portions we should expect if we came here on a regular night and paid your menu price?
