    We haven’t eaten here in 20 years, we would frequent regularly in our youth. We returned with our adult children and just like 20 years ago, we were not disappointed. Still the same family run business who place importance on good quality food and good customer service. We will be returning a lot sooner.

    I had dinner there on Saturday with a dear friend. He suggested it as thought this would suit my palate. It's a great restaurant, with a lovely convivial atmosphere and nice service. The food was excellent, we shared a small pork sausage risotto to begin and I had the veal with eggplant for my main and the man had the veal with lemon. Excellent choices and the food is like your Nonna is cooking. The wine list contains wine by the glass as well as the bottle and a good beer selection. I will be back in the not too distant future.

    Its is family run and friendly. It gets busy so I would book rather than just turn up. Prices are responsible. Travelled over from the UK & met my Australian buddy Robbie. This is one of his favourite restaurants and I can also recommend it.

    Our dining experience was great. Pasta on point, dessert as well. Waiters very professional at the same time. Bravo

    Just came back from a brilliant experience here with my partner. Why was it so good you ask? Well, not only is the food possibly the best traditional Italian (Sicilian) in Melbourne, but the ambiance is highly romantic, the service is not just impeccable but also very warm and engaging. When I first saw this place was rated 4.7, I was a little sceptical... but now I know why they deserve it!

    I took my partner there for her birthday on Tuesday {18 Feb}. what a great place to have a quite dinner. Great atmosphere, great meal, & fantastic service. good on you all, well done team. we will be back.

    There are many nice things to say about this truly authentic Italian dining experience. Firstly the restaurant is cosy and very romantic. The waiters are excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. The menu is extensive and unlike many Italian restaurants is not completely dominated by pasta options. From the absolutely delicious olives that are waiting on your table when you first arrive through the garlic bread with full flavour and crispy edges to the beautiful pastas and very impressive selection of Wines this is a restaurant that lives up to it's reputation. The trio of pastas is an excellent option for couples and the selection of desserts available are hard to resist especially the passionfruit souffle. I highly recommend that you visit amiconi restaurant. I will definitely be back.

    Great family style restaurant just outside Melbourne CBD. One of my favourite Italiab restaurants in Melbourne. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Inside the tables are close together but not crowded in the nicely decorated interior. Food is always top notch. I like all their pasta dishes. Their desserts are also amazing !

  • 5Jamie M. 10 months ago
    Michael and the Amiconi family welcomed me with open arms last night, with a vintage Italian-Australian restaurant setting and old school Italian family vibes, I enjoyed a meal of Gnocchi and dessert washed down with some red wine. Thank you to the family at Amiconi for having me!

    I booked this venue for a wake post my grandmothers funeral for 30 people and the owners were very accommodating despite the short notice. The food was delicious and although we were gathered for unfortunate circumstances, everyone enjoyed the lunch. The decoration is very beautifull and i really like it.

    Great service. Recommend Profiteroles for dessert... chocolate and caramel on those puffs are so good. Too bad I was too excited and forgot about photos. We also had calamari, risotto and garlic mushroom . Calamari was too salty for my liking. Risotto in pesto was superb. I have mix feeling with garlic mushroom but it taste pretty good. Was thinking it would be dry/sauce less. Definitely going back again

    One of the best Italian Restaurants in Melbourne

    Service was cry old school with that small restaurant feel. I had the steak and it was probably one of the worst steaks of my life. Unbelievably grisly. The appetisers were tasty. Prices are on the high end

  • 1S. 10 months ago
    Service was appalling, they seated us near the kitchen, near the waiters table where the plates and utensils are. Kindly asked them to have the seat repositioned to the opposite so that there is less noise whilst eating. Male young waiter was not sympathetic at all and only cared for his job rather then responding to my concern re loud plate/utensil noises. No apologies from this staff, I left the restaurant immediately.

    We dined here for my husbands birthday on the 15th Feb. 2020. We were a group of 6 and I decided to do the $79 banquet. While the food was nice it was very expensive for what came out and everything was cramped into the 2hr session that we had which spoiled the whole experience. It was just as well that we did not bring a birthday cake as there would not have been any time to cut it. The staff were not overly attentive and it did very much appear that this restaurant is all about the numbers and not the customers experience. After a couple of bottles of wine the bill came in at $560 which I do not think was worth it for simply just 2hrs. We were just getting up and already the waiter was rearranging the table for the next lot of diners. I do not recommend.
