Bei Amici continues to excel. It is a wonderful place to relax with friends over a fine meal. The service is outstanding. You are treated as a valued friend, not simply a customer. The preparation, presentation, and flavors of the menu items are outstanding. The atmosphere is casual and lends itself to great conversation.

Although we only tend to come to Bei Amici on special occasions, it never fails to live up to our last amazing experience here. Much nicer and more ambiance than a number of hatted restaurants.

A bit noisy when it is full house. Otherwise a good place to hang out with friends or neighbors any time.

The food here is delicious - not stodgy traditional Italian, rather it's a little innovative with fresh flavours. The service is professional without being obtrusive

It was a busy Saturday night for the restaurant, so a bit noisy, but the service and food were excellent. Will definitely come back again.

Beautiful authentic Italian food in a casual and friendly setting. We chose to go for the chef's set menu (ci penso io), which is just $40 for three courses on Tuesdays. Lightest gnocchi I've had - would thoroughly recommend.

Dining alone presents some particular challenges, but I found the service welcoming and attentive and the food was excellent.

Excellent suburban Italian restaurant. A little cramped but the food is really nice. Wine prices are a little on the high side for a suburban location but service is attentive without being overly intrusive.

Amazing as usual - bei amici is probably the only restaurant in sydney which serves you great food (flavour and execution) and provides a great service without being snob or/and starve you. It is not a "tapas style" restaurant ... it is good, refined and yet not obnoxious food. It's the perfect restaurant that incorporates art de vivre, friendliness and good value.

Bei Amici certainly lives up to its name. Beautiful friends indeed!
Every visit we've made to this classy restaurant is similar to visiting a very long standing and trusting friend's home. The service, food, wine selection and ambience are outstanding. The attention to detail, the professionalism of the staff and the sense of fun ensure a fabulous experience.
