I don't usually write reviews for restaurants, in fact this is my first. I felt compelled to as our experience at Amico Bio was unbelievably bad. Table of four friends. Took over 20 mins for us to be even given the menus after being seated and the service staff weren't friendly at all. Not rude, just no smiles or welcoming personality. I have a feeling the management must not know what they are doing and possibly treating the service staff like crap. I had a pesto fried gnocci for a starter and boy was it pretentious, bland and impossible to eat with a knife and fork. It was basically crackers with garnish on top. We all had to eat them with our fingers. Didn't look fresh or even made on site for that matter. disgusting! For a main I had tempura vegetables. I chose this as I was interested to see an Italian take on a classic Japanese dish. This came out an hour after ordering. The tempura fried vegetables came wrapped in a tacky paper cone and tempura wasn't made properly and far too oily. Dish was warm. Not hot. For everyone else at the table, their meals were just as bad. One of my friends described the mushroom pasta on a par with a pot noodle. It was embarrassing to bring people here and certainly embarrassing for both Italian and Vegetarian cuisine.
No wonder they are reeling people in with groupon vouchers. I doubt there are many returning customers.
