It was our second time to meet up and we wanted to try a different place where we can stay until desserts. So over a few exchanges of text messages, we finally agreed to meet up at Amici 3rd floor of  SM Megamall Atrium. Luck was on our side that Friday night, there were no lines and we got a seat right smack in the middle so service was fast and efficient.

We decided to order three different pasta and one pizza: two were cream based while the other one was olive oil based. The food we ordered were all delicious, we sampled each of our orders and there was no item we found fault in. The cream based had just the right seasoning, nothing that overpowered the cream nor was it diluted that the carbonara or ravioli would just look like a tasteless sludge Also even if these meals were good for one, it can be shared by three since the cream based ones become heavy after three or so spoonfuls.

Spaghetti Alla Carbonara Pasta – Spaghetti pasta tossed in creamy white sauce with Parmesan cheese and bacon bits. Yes, there is bacon bits but I really did not get to taste bacon here still it does not lessen nor take away from how wonderfully dressed with cream the noodles were.

Spaghetti Ai Tesori del Mare – A mildly spicy feast of spaghetti tossed in fresh tomatoes, scallops, clams, mussels and chili oil. I am not a fan of seafoods but this dish do not have the fishy taste nor smell. Note the mildly spicy here, hardly any zing I promise if you are wary of anything spicy.  Really light compared to the cream based yet very delectable still. Must try even for those who are not into seafoods like me. 😀

Ravioli di Spinaci Pasta – Spinach and mushroom filled ravioli served in creamy, truffle oil flavored sauce. Not also a spinach fan even though when I was a kid I thought I can be like Popeye and just munch thru some spinach and be strong. Blech taste was all I can remember but this dish made me rethink my dislike for spinach. Really nice mix, I found myself having two servings of ravioli since it did not attack my otherwise picky taste buds.

Al Quattro Formaggi – Parmesan, Mozarella, cream cheese, and blue cheese. Okay, okay as if we do not have enough filling cream based we had a pizza topped with four types of cheese. We had our fill and despite our already growing bellies, we managed to down more than a slice each.

And since we were already having a good time, we stayed way until dessert. Like the meals we had, we also decided to get three different types.

Choco Sans Rival – Their famous sans rival flavored gelato mixed with chocolate and layered in meringue wafers and topped with chocolate ganache. I am not into the technical food term stuffs, but chocolates are there for a reason and this one takes the cake. It was not too sweet yet very chocolaty. We made sure nothing remains on the bowl as even the toppings were relished with gusto.

Choco Tartufo  – Chocolate and vanilla gelato mixed with bits of nuts and cherries in a shell of rich, moist chocolate cake topped with ganache. Another not too sweet mix and this does not take away from how pleasurable the mix was in my mouth.

Peach Walnut Passion – a very light ending to my otherwise very cream based heavy meal. The chiffon was so airy and beautifully paired with walnut and peach that the cake in itself was a totally great finish to cap off the evening.

I would eat in Amici again, the price may be exorbitant especially since there was just three of us and we managed a total bill of P1600+ still I would not have second thoughts in paying that much for a wonderfully prepared meal anytime.
