I’ve written several reviews of Amici Miei in the past 7 years; they have all been great, and this one s no exception. Roberto put together a great specials menu for the weekend and then had to modify it because some of his first list sold out! He served Veal Osso Bucco for the first time in about 2-3 years; I submitted an online request for mine 5-6 hours ahead of time fearing they might run out, and I was right. It was beyond wonderful! And he substituted Beef Carpaccio as a special at the last minute, and of course, it was fantastic. This is a great restaurant with an owner and a chef who really know how to please people. It’s a great place to dine anytime, but if you ever see that the specials include Osso Bucco, get there early and you will be guaranteed a wonderful dinner.

Good food and a big attempt by the owner and few staff to provide an excellent experience. Like all restaurants you can quickly see the result of limited number of employees but they handled it well

Amazing food! The specials didn't disappoint! Everyone should try the monkfish dish; wrapped in prosciutto, served on a bed of delectable veggies... Yum! Yum! Yum!

Excellent and authentic Italian / Sardinian cuisine. The Arctic Char was really fresh and tasty, my wife loved the chicken parmigian; and a couple of bottles of DOCG Chianti helped it all along.

I was looking for a place to have Thanksgiving Dinner during the time of Covid. I'm not necessarily a fan of turkey, but turkey roulade sounded great with roasted brussels sprouts, stuffing with rosemary sauce and roasted sweet potato sounded delicious. It was a bargain at $26 but there were limited wine choices by the glass, but fortunately the pinot grigio married well. Nevertheless a fantastic meal followed by pistachio cannoli with a hint of orange flavoring drizzled in chocolate. Absolutely superb. I had no idea how crowded it might be, and dined early. No crowds--we we nicely spaced apart, and apparently many people ordered carry-out. Will have to try them again in the future.

A group of us went here for an evening meal and it was fantastic. The eggplant parmesan, the lasagna and especially the seafood salad. It's food quality for foodies. The waiter was so friendly and patient and helpful.

Two couples gathered at Amici Miei for an outdoor meal on a chilly evening. We were prepared for the weather, though we'd been told that there were heaters in use, but there were not. Our table was small, not big enough for 6 foot distancing, but we trusted our friends to be healthy. Once over these hurdles, we enjoyed a very delightful meal, choosing several of the evening's specials, and everyone was happy. The seafood ravioli was said to be very good, and my veal scallopine with mushrooms was excellent and a very ample serving. (I took some of it home for the next day!) Our fourth had soup special and salad and enjoyed both. Our service was very good, likely partly because there were few customers that evening, sadly a consequence of the scary times in which we are living. We enjoyed our experience very much and hope that Amici Miei will continue to be successful despite these challenging times.

We sat outside. Tables were spaced well apart and the food was very good. We were surprised that the menus were not disposable and felt the need to use sanitizer after touching them. Hopefully they are cleaning everything very well

I judge an Italian restaurant by its lasagna. At Amici Miei, the texture, the layering, and most importantly, the sauce, exceeded expectations. This is an excellent Italian eatery, with first-rate service. I will be back with my family.

Warm reception immediately set the tone for a pleasant dinner experience. Food was excellent and well prepared- wine selection was good and not overpriced
Fresh cod was the special with mashed butternut squash that was delicious
I will certainly go back again to try their pasta dishes soon

We had an early dinner before going to a concert so we had the restaurant to ourselves at first. Even as the restaurant filed it was not loud. The service was excellent and the food was even better. I will be going back again for sure.

We had been going to the N Potomac location for over 11 years! The new Rockville location looks like a converted Chinese restaurant and the menu now reflects a standard (basic) Italian menu. More focus on the pizza and less on the sublime authentic italian menu selections. Gone are the white charred sardines, the Brick oven roasted Bronzino and all the other subtle but unique menu items that made the original location so special to dine at. Food and service was still good but we will not be coming back. My wife and i were very sad to see the new location and experience it for the first and no only time.

Lovely little restaurant with great ambience & excellent service. The food however was average and we have had a lot better for the price.
I would go again and give it a second try as it was Valentine’s night / busy so maybe the kitchen was under a bit of pressure.
