I dragged Rochelle and Chris to accompany me. The minute we sat down they brought food from Amici to our table. They served 2 kinds of pasta and pizza. Our hands down favorite was the spaghetti in olive oil and garlic. It was mouth-watering good! The touch of red pepper flakes and anchovies gave the dish just the right amount of kick and flavor. You MUST order this when you go to Amici.

Cara Mia has eighteen delectable flavors of gelati -Pistachio, Sans Rival, Strawberry Supreme, Cioccolato, Straciatella, Mint with Chocoalate, Espresso, Choco with Nuts, Blueberry Supreme, Nocciola (Hazelnut), Guianduia (Choco Hazelnut), Vanilla, Mango Classic, Mango Jubilee, Ube, Macapuno, Pineapple, and Banana.
We tried all the flavors! I told the server to give me mini scoops of gelato on the waffle cup. We all had our own favorites. The chocolate and strawberry were very good. The chocolate had a deep, rich chocolate flavor. The sans rival was also good but it was too sweet. If they adjust the sweetness it will surely be a big hit.
Cara Mia also has different gelato based desserts like the affogato which is a scoop of gelato on a bed of soaked ladyfingers served with a shot of espresso coffee. They have six affogato varieties—Tiramisu Twist, Black Forest Spell, Berries Delight, Noccioloa Blend, Tropical Mix, and Choco Banana.
If you want to drink your gelato instead go for the gelato shakes—Mud Slide, Pine-Mango, Banana Strawberry, and Coffee Java.
With all these choices there’s no reason not go back to Cara Mia over and over again until you’ve tried all the flavors and gelato concoctions.
