▪ Fans of the popular Amici’s Brick Oven and Italian Pizza will be glad to hear the restaurant from Broadway has opened up its new location. Now a part of Restaurant Row and within skipping distance of Tanger Outlets on U.S. 17, Amici’s is in a good location to build up a new audience without being completely unreachable to their old crowd.
Although their location has changed, this Italian eatery remains otherwise the same in their dedication to supporting local businesses for fresh food as often as they can. The menu also hasn’t been altered much, which means many favorites are still an option for reoccurring customers.
Their new address is 9924 North Kings Highway with daily hours from 11 in the morning to 10 at night. Amici’s website remains under amicisbrickovenbistro.com as does their Facebook handle, but a call to 843-444-0006 will also get you in contact with the restaurant.
