The new dishes to try at Amici

Amici dropped new dishes to it's Italian arsenal!

 Let's face it, almost everybody loves Italian cuisine. Out with the typical "overcooked" spaghetti the Filipino taste buds appeal to, and in with Al Dente (google can help you with this term)! For the most part, Amici has been very consistent in serving dishes that hit close to Italian heritage- from the method of using Brick Fire Ovens to kneading their own Gnocchis.

An honest review, but I really liked the new dishes they served. All had their own variation in terms of flavor and texture- especially the ones that were spicy! In general, all dishes were well seasoned and easily accommodating to the local palate. Check out the new selections!

Spinach Artichoke (P285.00)
An appetizer that can contend to be a main dish! Parmesan coated pizza crust wedges, served with creamy spinach artichoke dip. 

Bacon & Cheese Gnocchi (P368.00)
Gnocchi (pronounced as Nyokki) is a traditional Italian style pasta pillow made of potato- my personal favorite.

The Italian Burger (P368.00)
Their beef patty is mixed with Italian sausage and seasonings, topped with fried onion rings, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato between butter toasted brioche buns. An order comes with a side of potato wedge fries.

Pasta Nero (P398.00)
I think some restaurants fail to consider that squid ink can be very troublesome for the Filipino palate- especially if overdone. But Pasta Nero definitely nailed it. Pasta Nero has squid ink and pomodoro sauce mixed with spaghetti, topped with crunchy calamari and garlic aioli.

Spicy Italian Sausage Pizza (P468.00)
This is recommended only for those with higher spiciness tolerance- served with honey on the side to accommodate the spiciness.

Seafood Diablo (P378.00)
A seafood party! It's a plate full of clams, scallops, tomato and cream sauce on spaghetti, sauteed with chili flakes and chili oil.

Bistecca Striploin Steak (P795.00)
The price reflects the sharing factor. You can choose among two sides: rice pilaf, baked potatoes, mixed vegetables, or sauteed mushrooms.

Last and not the least!
Matcha Gelato and Salted Caramel Gelato (P90.00 per scoop)

Thanks for the invite Amici!
