Teriible, what's to like – Probably one of the worst experiences I've had with a pizza restaurant. I ordered by phone, was told 10 minutes. My office is right across the street, so I waited ten minutes or so before leaving the office. I get there, pay, order not ready yet.
20-25 minutes later I get my order, it's warm at best. By the time I get to my destination it's soggy and room temp. The people comment about the skimpy topping and give me a hard time about it being cold.
I was thinking it would be so great... right across the street, it'll still be pretty hot by the time I get it to the destination and it'll be really good pizza, so I've heard...just the opposite.
So I will post on yelp and facebook and any other public means I can because that was horrible. Put me in a bad mood and brought cold food to people waiting for dinner.
Oh and people had one piece and stopped... so guess we'll be throwing away the rest and find something good to snack on.
Great food – The food here is excellent. It is very expensive if you're just going out for a pizza but worth the hassle of going downtown San Jose for.
THE GREATEST on this coast – The best thin crust pizza this coast has to offer. The taste and consistency are stupendus. THE SALADS along side are a healthy portion too.. a great place to eat.
Ok pizza. – To be honest, I didn't think the pizza from Amici's was too impressive. This is probably one of the more expensive pizzas I have bought, and to be frank I'd have frozen taste equal or if not better. The staff is very helpful though. It might also be because I came on a slow night, they really took their time to help me select the right pizza. I ended up with the New Haven White Clam and Spicy Pepper Chicken. It's not that they were bad pizzas, it just didn't leave a very last impression which is what I was expecting since I've heard so many great things about this pizzeria. Oh well, my perfect pizza search continues.
the only decent pizza around....so far – i just moved to san jose from new york a year ago. and i gotta be honest, the pizza here isn't so great. amici's however serves up a nice thin crisp crust pizza that's full of flavor. it's close to the "real" thing.
Brick Oven....you gotta love this place! – I am old fashioned and feel that pizzas should come out of a brick oven. No warming lamps for me....
Really good pizza, but costly. Wonderful ambience. Love watching the ovens. – Very good service and good food. Not better pizza than Maldonado's, though. It's a beautiful restaurant and I love watching the guys manning the brick oven. Nice place to take guests. Very pricey.
Editorial Review – Pizza parlor serves up authentic New York-style pie and traditional Italian dishes to the Bay Area.
