For our first "A" we decided on Amici's Pizza in Suffolk. Jimmy is a big fan of Italian and it has scored lots of good reviews online, so it seemed a good place to start. The restaurant has a really nice atmosphere. You can see the woodfire pizza oven when you walk in, which I liked. It has a cute little patio, but since it was January we didn't go that route. We got there around 6 and had no trouble getting in, but by the time we left it was hopping.
They have a large selection of beers, as well as wine and martinis. We started with the meatball appetizer off of recommendations I read online. They were delicious! It's something neither one of us would have ordered, but we were glad we did.
Jimmy ordered the lasagna which was large and yummy. There was lots and lots of cheese which is always a plus. Whoever is a friend of cheese is a friend of mine. I ordered the magic mushroom pizza. There were lots of real mushrooms and cheese and the crust was delicious. However it had a balsamic vinegar sauce drizzled over it which I was not a fan of. The waitress said people either love it or hate it, usually based on that sauce. If you're not sure if you're a fan, you might ask for it on the side.
Overall, we would give Amici's 4 out of 5 stars.
