Foodie Friday: Amici

Here’s an excerpt about Amici from ClickTheCity.com

From the printing press canteen started by Salesian Italian missionary Fr. Gianluigi Colombo, Amici di Don Bosco Incorporated was established in 2001. The Italian canteen, which was first known for its home-made Italian gelato, became a popular choice of the general Makati public for value-for-money food. In 2003, pastas and wood fire oven-cooked pizzas were added to its roster of authentic Italian offerings.

The volume of its patrons magnified in a matter of months and Amici di Don Bosco earned the fame it now enjoys even outside the Makati public. Nonetheless, with this success comes the need for a more dynamic management system. Realizing that the restaurant business was not its core competence, the Salesians agreed to a complete buy-out of Amici di Don Bosco by Mr. Danny Moran and Mr. Iboy Pinga.

In November 2007, the entity was relaunched as simply “Amici” under Amici Foodservice Ventures Incorporated. At present, it is still known for the Salesian legacy of authentic Italian menu at very affordable prices and now has three branches in Don Bosco, Makati, Tomas Morato and SM Megamall. Its Greenhills branch will open middle of 2009.

Since the wifey discovered it a couple of years ago, it has become her comfort food. We try to visit the branch in Don Bosco as much as we could but it was just a little too inconvenient for us. So she was really happy when new branches that were accessible opened up. This time we visited the branch in Megamall Atrium.

Here’s what we ordered:

Spaghetti Ai Tesori del Mare

Although I enjoyed this dish, I have never really been a fan of seafood pasta (I’m just too lazy to peel the shrimp and to work on the shells). So, I just give this an OK!

Al Quattro Formaggi

I usually love my pizza with lots and lots of meat, but this was actually pretty good. SUCCESS!

Pistaccio Cioccolato

I was actually hesitant to try this out since the idea of pistachio and chocolate cake did not sound right to me. I was pleasantly surprised though. SUCCESS!
