Restaurant Details

The menu at Gruppo di Amici is rather daring in its spareness: no scads of pasta dishes here. To begin there are antipasti and insalata such as mussels, calamari, and a generous salad of mixed greens. Entrees include meat lasagna, rack of lamb in red-wine sauce, and chicken Amici, a breast stuffed with mushroom, goat cheese, spinach, and prosciutto and served with linguine. But as at so many places these days, the wood-burning Italian pizza oven is where the real action is meant to be. We went with the Capricciosa: mushrooms, prosciutto, artichoke, hard-boiled eggs, and olives with fresh mozzarella and a tomato sauce seemingly free of garlic. Quite chewy, it was styled so rustically that we wound up bartering the inequitably distributed ingredients ("Trade you the artichoke for a hard-boiled egg and a bit more prosciutto"). There's a nicely chosen global wine list, with some suggestions by the glass indicated on the menu.
