This was the best gluten free meal I have had in a long time. They have Lasagna that is to die for and it’s a huge portion. No skimping on the portion sizes just because it’s gluten free! Also, the bartender also eats gluten free and made me feel super confident that my food would be safe :)

I’ve eaten at Amici twice- one for takeout lasagna (amazing!!!) and ordered the pasta Alfredo (made with GF penne). Both dishes were so incredibly good. Don’t be fooled by the “no gluten free menu” tag- just talk with your server and they will confirm everything with the chef.

I’m a celiac and very sensitive and felt great after both meals. Staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and not put out in the slightest by the gluten free request. I’ve got a new favorite “safe” spot!

They are so good here about gluten free! They literally can make so many menu items gluten free! Their food is delicious!

The only thing I wish they had was gluten free bread - the regular bread always looks delicious!

Best GF Italian dining experience. I don’t usually go to Italian restaurants (I’m celiac) but this is a great place for a safe GF meal. No GF menu but that’s because so many items can be made to order, even the specials. The wait staff are all very knowledgeable. And the taste? I have been many times, gotten a variety of dishes and have NEVER been disappointed. Portions are large! They have GF lasagna on the menu that is so good that my husband even loves it. Other pasta dishes to try are the Arrabbiata and the Carbonara. Saltimbocca is also wonderful. Amici even has a couple of GF dessert choices! The restaurant is comfortable inside but not too formal and they have a nice patio for summer dining. So glad I live close!

Our server was phenomenal, he knew all of the gluten free items and marked them off on a menu for me to take home. Many options, don’t be fooled by the starts on the menu, they are not the only choices. I am very sensitive and did not get sick. The saltimbuca was amazing, risotto was well cooked, and there were even GF desserts!

We had our anniversary dinner here and it was amazing! They had gluten free pasta alternatives for all dishes and knew what to recommend for sauces that were not flour based. I did not get sick after dining here.
