A Rosemary Beach staple, Amici 30A offers a variety of rustic Italian dishes in trendy casual style. Expect beautifully-plated dishes blending fresh, wholesome Italian flavors with locally-available ingredients whenever possible. Both indoor and outdoor seating options keep everyone comfortable, and the atmosphere will welcome you in with style; the entire location is casual but chic, well-appointed but not stuffy. 

Amici is located right next door to their sister restaurant, Amigo’s, which is owned by the same hospitality group. It’s a favorite among locals as well as visitors who have a taste for authentic Italian cuisine. Perfect for a casual date night or a relaxing meal after a day of exploring the nearby Gulf coast area, Amici offers an extensive menu featuring everything from hand-cut pasta to fresh seafood dishes prepared with locally-caught fish. Although some guests report inconsistent food quality between visits, Amici is generally considered a solid, if slightly pricey, option for an upscale-casual Italian restaurant. 

Some menu favorites include…

Burrata
A classic Italian appetizer, burrata has instant appeal among the cheese-lovers who visit. Burrata is a type of fresh Italian cheese crafted from mozzarella and heavy cream; the outer shell is hard mozzarella, while the inner filling is creamy and soft–perfect for spreading on a slice of freshly-baked Italian bread. 

Pasta
Amici’s spaghetti bolognese is consistently fresh, hot, and flavorful. Not every bolognese sauce manages to score the ideal balance of flavor, but Amici’s chefs seem to nail it every time. Their other pasta are also consistently on-point; from the alfredo to the ravioli, you’ll encounter fresh flavors and perfectly-cooked pasta brimming with flavor. 

Pesto Pizza Pie
You’ll find an array of pizza options on the menu, but the pesto pizza pie is a longstanding favorite. This pie features an arugula-spinach pesto, fire-roasted peppers, marinated free-range chicken, arugula, baby heirloom tomatoes, and a blend of mozzarella, fontina, feta, and peco romano cheese. 

Tiramisu
Classic tiramisu with a twist. Amici’s tiramisu consists of mascarpone cream, rum, whipped cream, and chocolate espresso-soaked ladyfingers, all topped with a hazelnut coffee crunch. 

Amici is located right next door to their sister restaurant, Amigo’s, on 30A just across from Inlet Beach. It’s an easy-to-find, convenient stop after a day of exploring the Rosemary Beach area. 

Insider Tips:
– Want to imbibe in a cocktail or two? Happy hour is from 3-6 every day and includes deals on pizza as well as drinks.  
– Amici’s take-out options can take significantly longer to make it out during peak dinner hours; keep this in mind and don’t expect a lightning-fast turnaround if you’re ordering out when they’re busy.
