Great pasta and gelato in one place. That's the best way to describe Amici. Me and my officemates visited the Taguig branch (Venice Piazza, Mckinley Hill) of this restaurant after the long and tiring day at the office. Amici is popular for its Italian cuisines which is from pasta to pizza and even their sweet and refreshing gelatos. Just a perfect getaway after work. Please bare with the photos below. I only used my camera phone for this entry (forgot again to bring my camera with me). =]
It is not only the food that is great about this place, aside from the excellent service to match, Amici also provides a warm ambiance where people will really enjoy their dining experience. If you are looking for superb Italian food, I gladly recommend to visit Amici.
This is not the first time we eat at Amici. On our first visit (I'm not yet a blogger back then) we only tried their pizzas and haven't tried to taste their pasta. So this time around, all we ordered was their different shades and flavors of pasta. But I promise to make another blog entry for their pizzas and gelatos the next time I dine here again.
|love the taste of it with the dip on top :]|
