Amici evolved from the service-from-the-heart initiative of Fr. Gianluigi Colombo, an Italian priest in charge of overseeing the operations of the Don Bosco Printing Press. In 1994, in support of the school’s employees, he proposed to start a canteen in Don Bosco School to meet the need of the school’s employees for an access to good food during lunch breaks. He got permitted and the result was an Italian delicatessen canteen called Amici di Don Bosco (Friends of Don Bosco). The school cafeteria became a business entity that served the employees and the students of the school. It was later on expanded as a franchise restaurant in Manila in 2007.
The restaurant’s Italian style deco
Amici means “friend” in Italian, and the former friendly school canteen retained its amiable and cozy atmosphere even as it expanded its menu and market. Now, Amici’s authentic Italian menu and friendly services have made it popular among local and foreign diners. Its pasta and pizza dough are homemade, and pizzas are baked in the traditional wood fired stone oven.
A new addition to their menu — Truffle Egg Prosciutto Pizza
Be enamored with their menu, from their Bestsellers, their Insalata, Antipasti, Pasta, and Pizza to Dolci, Bevandi and Vini. Try their newest offering, the Truffle Egg Prosciutto Pizza (P460), a scrumptious mix of spinach and prosciutto all drizzled with truffle oil and topped with two eggs for a unique bite full of scrumptious flavor.
Its bestselling dish Spaghetti Ai Tesori del Mare (P365) has plenty of seafood.
One of their bestselling pasta dish is the Spaghetti Ai Tesori del Mare (P365 regular, P710 grande), a mildly spicy feast of spaghetti tossed in fresh tomatoes, scallops, clams, mussels and chili oil.
It is almost always packed and so it’s best to make a reservation in advance. Delivery service is available for a minimum worth order of P500.
