Amici: Authentic Italian and its Anniversary Buy 1 Take Pizza Fest

I've been hearing raves about Amici for quite some time.  A few weeks ago, I finally had the time to stop by and try it out.

The place had a nice and homey ambiance.  It's cozy yet laid back so you can simply enjoy the food with your companions. 

Food

Anti Pasti
proscuitto artichoke cream pizza roll
Proscuitto & Artichoke Cream Pizza Roll (242 php)
The Proscuitto & Artichoke Cream Pizza Roll is a pizza roll filled with antichoke cream, cream cheese, proscuitto and argulo drizzled with reduced balsamic vinegar.  This has a subtle flavor that keeps you wanting more.  
 

proscuitto portobello pizza roll
Proscuitto Portobello Pizza Roll (242 php)
The Proscuitto Portobello Pizza Roll is a must try for mushroom lovers like me.  It is filled with proscuitto, portabello mushrooms, cream cheese and argulo.  It comes with a delicious roasted garlic dip which complemented it well.


Pasta
penna rosa bacon
Penna Rosa & Bacon (252 php)
My favorite dish that was served is the Penna Rosa & Bacon.  It had an aromatic flavor of garlic and onions which matched its bechamel sauce.  It also had savory bacon and mushroom bits.  I really liked the tangy taste of their tomato sauce.  That's how I expect red sauces to be.

garlic chorizo spaghetti
Garlic Chorizo Spaghetti (250 php)
The Garlic Chorizo Spaghetti had a light olive oil base that had a hint of garlic.  It didn't give much impact despite the addition of the salty Spanish chorizo. 

Il favorito dela  Casa
chicken parmigiana
Chicken Parmigiana (328 php)
The Chicken Parmigiana is one of the best one I've tried.  It had a perfectly crunchy breading and a oh-so-juicy and tender chicken meat within.  It's topped with melted mozzarella cheese and tangy tomato sauce.  Yum!


Pizza
truffle mushroom pizza
Truffle Mushroom Pizza (430 php)
If you've been reading my previous posts, you'd know how much I'm in love with truffle mushrooms so the Truffle Mushroom Pizza was a guaranteed hit for me.  I loved any bite of this!
 
smoked salmon top crust pizza
Smoked Salmon-Top Crust Pizza (395 php)
The top crust pizza reminded me of  the Mexican quesadillas except that it was less cheesy and the dough is thicker.  I'm a huge fan of smoked salmon so I enjoyed the Smoked Salmon-Top Crust Pizza but I honestly would have enjoyed this as a simple pizza.  I don't buy the double the crust, double the carbs and less the flavor idea.

I was in a hurry for my prelims so I didn't bother ordering their gelato.  I've tried Cara Mia's gelato a long time ago though.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Amici serves delicious authentic Italian dishes priced reasonably.  I'll definitely visit it again whenever I'm craving for an authentic brick-oven cooked pizza and perfect al dente red sauced pasta.
