The Hammocks: Amici’s Trattoria Italiana

Since we headed way south to Homestead to visit the Coral Castle, we stopped on our way back up north to have dinner at The Hammocks, a little town by Kendall. We ate at Amici’s Trattoria, let me say – great choice!

Its located in a shopping plaza, huge parking lot so for sure you’ll find parking. We chose to sit outside because there were no booths I wanted inside, but the inside is actually super cute.

My boyfriend and I shared this calamari appetizer. The sauces were both great, and there was actually a lot of calamari! I’ve experienced more breading than calamari before, but this restaurant definitely respects the breading boundary!

May and her man shared the bruschetta appetizer (it actually came with 4 pieces but halfway through the first one she remembered to take a picture lol).

So this was my entree, I had the Farfala with Sausage. This is made with Italian sausage, which is actually a very particular taste that not many people like. Its kind of “tangy”, but being hispanic and being used to a bunch of different types of sausage, I found it easy to appreciate its taste. The cream sauce was delish, and it was so much food I made two meals out of it.

May’s Fettuccine Alfredo was also a two meal dish, and clearly the photo alone looks super tasty! They weren’t shy with the chicken which is a win, since a lot of restaurants tend to be cheap when it comes to protein in pastas.

The boys shared a Prosciutto Pizza – yum! My boyfriend really loved it, but then again he loves all pizza LOL

This was my daughters kids Pasta with Pink Sauce. OMG IT WAS SO GOOD lol next time I’m adding some chicken for her…. it was a two meal dish but could’ve used the meat.

May’s meal was actually like a, appetizer entre dessert package. She chose dulce de leche crepes… Honestly I didn’t like the burnt taste this one had, not sure if thats the normal taste or they really actually burnt it, but it wasn’t all that great.

This lovely drink was Vito Corleone – Johnny Walker Black Label & Amaretto.

 

The final verdict:

I would definitely go back! 15-20$ plates and they’re huge and so good that its worth it!
Service was great, so I definitely recommend this spot if you’re ever in its area.
