"We have been going to this restaurant for several years and have never been disappointed. The family greets you like a long lost friend and makes every effort for your visit to be great. The food is traditional and delicious."

"While strolling along Main Street in Sarasota my wife and I came upon Cafe Amici. It was lunch time and the menu looked intriguing so in we went. What we found inside was a lively Italian restaurant, friendly and competent service, good wine and great food. The menu had enough interesting choices to satisfy anyone. We plan on going back!"

"Walked by while touring downtown looking for a good dinner...loved the menu, were delighted by "papa's" greeting from his sidewalk table, ventured in and fell in love! The meal was terrific, the wine available by the glass outstanding and the service friendly and quick. We had such a great dinner on Friday that we went back again on Saturday!"
