Nestled in the heart of Whangarei, down bustling Quality Street, Amici is a charming eatery serving an extensive menu to cater for all throughout brunch, lunch, dinner, Pizzeria and dessert.


Welcome to AMICI – Your Local Home Style Italian restaurant,

When does a restaurant become more than just a place to just get something to eat? When does eating out become a great experience? At Amici, we strive to be YOUR favorite authentic home style Italian restaurant.

Food is at the heart of our mission. From the Italian classics, to our one-of-a-kind delicious Italian favorites, all of our offerings are handcrafted from the finest, freshest ingredients available. Whether you’re craving Italian comfort food like our Ravioli, Pappardelle or something with a little more Flevour like our famous Fettuccine Carbonara, Amici has something for everyone.


The History

‘We revere the tradition of serving only the best, and when it means coming in early to hand-roll the meatballs, build a layered Lasagna one layer at a time, or craft our tiramisu from scratch, we think of it as passion, not work. And while we are most proud of the Italian classics, it’s our one-of-a-kind, signature delicious flavored dishes that really get us excited! A little something we call Home Style Italian. Our Pastas, Pizzas, and Garlic Bread have been some of our more popular dishes since we first opened our doors.

So whether you love the classics, or the spice, or the rich flavored, it will always be fresh and handmade to order at Amici plus we have range of desserts, nibble or simply a casual wine or coffee, – Amici will happily welcome you. With an expansive terrace, featuring a classic tranquil fountain, and a warm interior with a cozy fireplace, the restaurant is suitable rain or shine – all year round.

We look forward to seeing you.
