Amicis Pizza Exterior

This local chain has 10 locations in the San Francisco Bay Area. We reviewed the San Mateo location. They use brick ovens and use the slogan “A taste of New York” Amici’s serves pizza, Pasta, Salads, and Sandwiches. People come for the pizza, so we went straight to the draw.
They had a bunch of delivery cars out back, so they must have a big delivery business.

Amicis Pizza 2

Decor is average, nothing memorable.  This location is pretty cramped and has only 1 shared bathroom.

Amicis Pizza Combo Pizza 2

Amicis Pizza Combo Pizza

The Amici’s Combo pizza 10in ($16.25) took about 20 minutes. It has Pepperoni, Meatball, Bacon, Sautéed Mushrooms, Black Olives. A little soggy in the middle. Lots of toppings, edge crust was crunchy but not great. This was a pretty average pizza, edible, but nothing special. The similar styled pizza at Toto’s is a better bet. If you like artisan or deep dish style pizza, look elsewhere.

Amicis Pizza Cheese Pizza

Amicis Pizza Cheese Pizza 2

Cheese Pizza (Mini $7.75) was very cheesy but had a layer of grease on top. No way we could eat it without padding it down.  Good way to continue childhood obesity.

Pans:


Amicis Pizza Pasta

Linguini pasta with Butter sauce ($5.75) was pretty bland and oily. Cheap food for kids though. The marinara sauce is healthier. Soda was $1.75 extra.

Amici’s service was average, only after waiting for a long time do you get some service. It was quite clear they were overloaded. Several wine and beer options are available. Only 2 dessert options. You can order online for delivery. Half bakes pizzas are also available.  Amici’s also has a kid’s menu. Corkage is only $8.

Nearby Osteria Coppa serves up excellent pizza.

  1. Mario Latendresse Says:

    The San Mateo Amici looks like a fast food place: cheap tables and chairs. The pizza are overpriced for that type of environment. If you ask 16$ for an average pizza you have to provide a better looking environment. The place is a typical American chain where the servers all dressed alike. This is not a place to relax as you have flood light and it is noisy.
