the first thing i noticed was their cheese options. i am a fan of cheese so for a restaurant to offer 9 different types of cheese you can get on your pizza i get excited! another thing is the list of toppings seems to be endless. they also offer whole wheat crust and gluten free thin crust! what more can you ask for? they have options for every0ne!
i dont drink, but they have an extensive martini/beer/whatever section. so thats pretty cool if you are into getting a drink with your food. lana also wants me to mention that they use fresh juices for their cocktails, she says that makes a difference.
amicis seems to cater more towards vegans/vegetarians and is a certified by the green restaurant association. they have also been voted as 2004 best martini bar from the detroit free press, 2002 best gourmet pizza by the detroit free press, and 2005-2007 citys best pizza by AOL city guide.
anyway, we got the pesto breadsticks and the vegan #8 pizza. the pesto sticks are wheat breadsticks with a pesto sauce on top served with their own herb tomato marinara sauce…delicious! the pizza was a wheat crust topped with walnuts, artichoke, spinach, and tomato and we chose to add tofu mozzarella…again, delicious!
