Different waiters 1 st night was great
2nd night waiter had some friends there, paid them all the attention, none to us
Sat there for at least 10 mins , ask her could we order drinks, her reply, in a moment, she never came back to us, sent someone else, never even ask if we wanted water
Girl that eventually served us was very nice.
Obviously the pick of places to eat, shame that 1 person can ruin things

Staff really try to rush you, our bruschetta was soggy and tomatoes were not fresh.
I personally think most patrons dress up for a lovely night out and the staff dress in active wear, not very classy for a fine dining restaurant

We booked a table through Amici`s booking agent 3 weeks in advance for myself & my 2 grand children for Saturday 8th June at 5.00 pm. On arrival at 5.00 we ordered our entrée & main meal & received the entrée within 15 minutes but the main meal took 1 hour & 15 minutes to arrive. We ordered desert but were told we had to vacate our table & eat the desert in the foyer. After some unpleasant discussion with the waiter we were allowed to stay at our table. I ordered coffee & this did not arrive. Obviously you need to vacate the tables as soon as possible to fulfil other bookings but it was not our fault the main meal took so long to arrive. This whole experience made us feel uncomfortable & we did not enjoy a usually pleasant dining experience. We have been frequenting Amici restaurant for many years now & have always recommended Amici to our friends but after this unpleasant experience we are having second thoughts.

If you want the best night out with friends and enjoy a fabulous meal head to Amici.
This is my favourite place to eat out with my family, never had a bad experience either.
I would recommend this place to everyone that visits the Sunshine Coast.

A little surprised to find restaurant in another location apparently it moved in November. Partner prefers this location I’m not sure as I quite liked the previous one. Anyway we know where it is now and what to expect. Happy to say that the food has not changed - the seafood pastas and bruschetta was as tasty and satisfying as ever. BYO with corkage is also a bonus. As long as the restaurant keeps serving up the same quality food we will continue to find them. The one concern was the wait time between ordering and receiving our main - we wouldn’t normally worry except we were going onto the theatre afterwards and were getting a little concerned that we might be late. Happy to say though that all turned out well with the timing in the end.

Amici would have the most authentic Italian food in Caloundra. A huge menu of selections. The antipasto is outstanding. Also, the seafood marinara is really the best I have ever had. My wife and I plan to return.

The food was nice but overpriced. I would expect an Italian restaurant to make their own pasta but my rigatoni was from a packet. Didn’t like the ‘birthday song’ that was played to the whole restaurant for someone on another table.

Amici’s is always amazing every time I come here! The service is 11/10 from everybody - so friendly and quick to help and answer any questions. I had a vegetarian special which was amazing and everything came to the table quickly. Would recommend to anyone to come here, every dish is delicious, you won’t be disappointed.

Beautifully decorated restaurant with exceptional dishes on their menu. I had the Pumpkin and Pinenut pizza whilst my partner had the Spaghetti Marianna, which he has every time as it is so delicious. We also had the bruschetta as an entree. The menu has a large range of dishes to choose from and they cater for everyone. Definitely choose to sit inside as the decor is cosy and lighting is perfect. Service times are excellent but you have to book in advance as Amici’s is very popular amongst locals. Whether you’re a family looking for yummy pizzas or pasta or you’re after a romantic evening for two, this is the place for you.

We arrived at 5.30pm and our meal arrived at 7.10pm, wait staff are great, Manager a horror and rude, would never go back while she is still there. They lost our order, she said they did not, lots of other diners commenting to us asking why we had no meal, people that arrived after us finished and left. We did not complain but our waiter noticed and asked kitchen, still took 25 minutes for meal to arrive. I walked out and another young waiter spoke to me as she had also noticed our lack of food, she apologised to me, but not her fault, they had to rearrange the tables as the 7pm sitting was arriving and we had not eaten, wait staff are excellent. My advice is Manager needs training in how to treat customers, her skills were appalling.

Food was amazing, service though needs attention. Not offered to purchase drinks prior to taking our food order, noone came back to ask if we would like more drinks the entire meal even though glasses were empty. Noone came after the meal to offer desserts - we had to request it after sitting there with dirty plates for 20minutes. Noone brought the bill so we eventually just got up and went to the counter.
If they fix the service side then it will be an amazing experience as the food was very good.
