Amici's East Coast Pizzeria Restaurant Review:

Diners get to see the large brick oven in this restaurant’s open kitchen, as well as the pizzas baking within. Pies are East Coast-style --- think thin crust and large, reasonable surrogates for someone missing their East Coast origins --- though there are no slices on offer. Customize toppings or opt for Amici's own combinations, some of which are distinctly West Coast: fried eggplant and daiya vegan cheese come to mind. Sides, starters, salads and pasta are on the menu, too, as is cheesecake or tuxedo cake. But the pizza is the star and the reason to come back. Covered outdoor seating is also available.
