Amici's Trattoria Italiana

Imagine a basic neighborhood Italian restaurant, and you’ll have thought of Amici’s. As the hosts say, “Amici means friend,” and you’ll be treated like one from the second you walk through the front door. And any member of the family — from grandpa to Tony Jr — will leave satisfied. Amici serves a variety of pizza — Sicilian-style and regular, white and red. A medium specialty pie ($10 to $13.95) feeds a couple of hungry kids, but go with a large three-topping pie ($16.20) or a large three-topping Sicilian ($17.25) to get a better bang for your buck. There are also Italian subs ($5.95 to $6.95), of course, filled with veal, eggplant, chicken, meatball parmigiana, and Italian sausage and peppers ($5.95). For a more adult (and less sloppy) choice, pick from plenty of pastas such as lasagna ($9.95) and spaghetti and meatballs ($9.95). Top off your Italian experience with cheesecake ($5.95). Or do as Vito does: Leave the gun and take the cannoli ($3.95).
