The Illinois Valley had many Italian families that have been around for many generations, so there are many different Italian restuarants to choose from. Amici's is very different from the other Italian restaurants in the area. Amici's has a more classy and sophisticated atmosphere, and the dishes are more true to Italian cuisine. They have a nice bar area, and the entire building is decorated beautifully with amazing art on the exterior and comfortable seating on the interior. The prices are much higher than other restuarants, but still affordable. If you are looking for a ncie place to dine for a more special occasion, I would suggest going to Amici's Ristorante!
