About Amici

Amici has a great atmosphere and is home of the Coal Fired Pizza. The coal fired pizza oven gives the pizzas their distinct, charred edges, and chewy pliable crust. Eat. Drink. Love Italian!

Owners Jack & Phil Rizzuto’s grandmother, Antonina (Lena), grew up in Caporeale, Sicily, a small market town a short distance from Palermo. Using a coal-fired oven to make pizzas was commonplace in Sicily, where wood was too expensive to burn. The intense heat from the coal ovens quickly cooked dough and charred meat without drying it out. Amici wants to recreate the food of their heritage for their amici and neighbors. So they went straight to Lena’s Sicily for their pizza oven, which was custom-built, and used her hand-written recipes to design their menu. Lena’s gravies, sauces, pastas, parmigiana and cannolis have been recreated and perfected by their cousin, Chef Frank Timphony, with help from their amico, Chef Jasper Mirable.

    I tried the broccoli rabe pizza and their meatballs. This place has plenty of potential and is in a prime area of town. We will definitely be back. Loved the doughnut dessert plate.
