AMICIS ITALIAN GRILL

Amicis Italian Grill is located about 4 doors down from Sobeys just off Country Hills Boulevard, in fact if you weren't looking for it you may have missed it altogether. This would be a crying shame is Amicis is by far one of my most favorite Italian Restaurants in the city. They are family owned and operated and offer a very friendly atmosphere as well as a delicious menu. Well known for their pizza, Amicis also offers a variety of different dishes, however their specialty is pasta. Try one of my favorites, the Jambalaya, when you pop in for dinner or lunch.
