Delicious Italian for lunch and dinner? Sign us up!

This little eatery takes pride and place on Whangarei's hip-hop-happening Quality Street. It's not hard to see why this charming spot is loved by locals. Adorned with playful chequered tablecloths, red chairs and a roofed bar, it's perfect for a family meal or a chilled one with mates.

Welcome the afternoon in with their lunch menu, consisting of brunch classics like the full English and creamy mushrooms on toast. If you fancy a quick lunch, look no further than their hearty sandwiches or make it extra special with spaghetti puttanesca, beef lasagne or any of their freshly made pizzas.

For dinner, treat yourself to a roasted lamb rump or a perfectly cooked steak, complete with truffle infused mash. Ooh la la! Vegetarians will love their Gnocchi Spinaci with blue cheese and some caramelised walnuts for that extra crunch. And in case you were wondering, yes, the pizzas still stand strong on the dinner menu. Phew!

Highly recommend this place. Friendly and efficient service, great atmosphere, child friendly, delicious food and good portion sizes. Great place to dine with kids. Timeliness of food arriving at the table was super. I couldn't fault this restaurant at all. Thanks for the awesome experience Amici :)

Everyone was very happy with their entrees and meals which included squid, cannelloni and pork. The portion sizes are largish, and we did not make it to pudding. A great meal out.

We took a friend and had a lovely meal at Amici. The food was excellent and the service was great. We have already told friends about it and they have booked in to try it for themselves.

Seafood in the pasta did not taste fresh so that meal was very off putting also askdd what seafood was included and was not advised there was full squid through it. However the other 2 meals carbonara and calzone were rated by the other two guests very highly. Service was good. However could bring water out on arrival we had to ask half way through our meal.

Another great meal, tasty and well presented.
The restaurant was a little busier than our previous visit, good to see.
Those around us indulging in a range of appetising deserts, we opted to share the sticky date pudding accompanied by a lovely icecream, Yummy!
Based on our experiences over the past 2 weeks we would happily recommend Amici.

Excellent service, good food. I love the dessert menu!

- dined at Amici Italian Restaurant on

Had a nice table by the fire, the matre de and waiter friendly.
We ordered a range of starters, particularly liked the garlic pizza bread and mushroom bruschetta.
Mains were tasty and servings generous followed by good cappuccinos. Next time we will leave room for desert. Good overall dining experience.

WOW!!! What an incredible meal, the salmon and risotto was absolutely divine, and the steak so well cooked you didn't even need a steak knife to cut it. And as much as we didn't need a dessert we still went there and mmmmmm yumbo, sticky date pudding is a must. Thank you Amici we'll be back
