Re: “Pass the Salt

I completely agree with the first post made by Chloe. I have been a loyal customer since they opened and have never had anything but a pleasant experience. The information placed in this review is indeed not completely accurate, every time I have been there, I have never seen the Cozzata served with 6 pieces of garlic bread. Might I also note that the cozzata pictured in the article also only has 3 pieces of garlic bread. I also found the information about the "mere" 2 pieces of veal inaccurate as well. Every time I have gone there, I have seen no less than 3 pieces of well proportioned veal on the plate.

As one must know, people have different tastes. If you over salt a dish, you can't take it out. Using little salt seems to be the safe way to go because there is always plentiful salt in the shakers on the table. That is what they are there for, why not use them? I have never found that Cozzata tasted good with a lot of salt anyways, it would make the mussels taste less fresh and take away from the taste.

Again, I'm not sure where she found that the staff there was annoying. As a patron many times to the restaurant, I have never had a bad server. They are attentive to me and my guests needs and are quite friendly unlike a lot of restaurant staff. I would rather a server come too much to the table rather than a server who you can never get a hold of.

Amici's owner is also extremely friendly and knows how to cook. I have seen quite a lot of people go up to talk to him to compliment him on his food, never to tell him how little salt he uses. This man knows how to cook and I believe a lot of patrons would agree, as well with Chloe above, that this is the best Italian food that you can get in town. If you like to over salt your food, that's your prerogative, but it is most certainly not the fault of the cook.
