A small (eight tables), cozy ristorìa. Apparently it is an offspring of the neighboring, excellent Durlindana restaurant. Decor: warm, contemporary and pretty much universal / soulless. Food: excellent (in my humble opinion). Short list, fresh ingredients, local, Sicilian (obviously!) inspirations. Nb. I had mostly seafood -- it was fresh and tastefully dominating. In sum: why not?!

Found this jewel while on a one-week business trip in Messina, located very close to U Messina campus. The place is relatively small, about 7 tables indoors, but the service and quality of food was outstanding. Seafood carpaccio, shrimps under pineapple sauce, porcini risotto, pistachio risotto, oven-baked fish, meat with pepper,.... and the list of our favorites is growing. Will... More

We ate at this restaurant when staying overnight on route to hotel in southern Sicily. Staff don't speak english - owner was a little better. Poor communication lead to a poor choice of food for one of us. Food was OK - seemed to be the only resurant that menu items in english. Only customers at 8pm - did not... More

We were a party of 7 without reservations for lunch. We were taken care of as soon as we walked in. Wine was in our glasses before we saw a menu. Fresh seafood delicious dishes kept coming! Linguini with clam sauce was prepared at our table by the owner. Staff was warm and friendly and despite language barrier they took... More

On a 4 day trip to Messina I had lunch twice at Amici Miei, the second time because the first time was so enjoyable. I was there with parties of 4 and 6, respectively, and everyone thought both the food, especially the fish, and service were excellent. I will certainly return on my next trip to Messina.

This restaurant was recommended by my B&B host for dinner. We didn't have reservations but were seated without hesitation. The waitress spoke no English, which is fine, but she refused to wait on us and referred us to the owner. The owner came over and spoke Italian nonstop even though I don't speak it. I saw people in the restaurant... More

Great small restaurant with superb service from owner and staff. Fish lovers paradise.. we went with some Italian friends who frequent often so that says something! We left choice of local wine to the owner and it was superb. Four of us shared aperitivi and then a primo of swordfish and tonno.. followed by the chefs own version of cannoli... More

We had planned to eat at Cafe DuDu, but it had closed and Amici Miei opened in its place. We went in on the recommendation of the shopkeeper next door and greatly enjoyed our meal. We had a sublime pasta dish and DH had a beef dish that he loved. The local wine recommended by the owner was delicious and... More

We usually use trip advisor but today we had no WiFi and just picked a restaurant close to area we were in. It was such a pleasant experience and some of the best good we have had in our 6 weeks of travel. The staff was exceptional. I wish this restaurant was in my back yard.
