Amante closed some time ago. Brodo has just opened. The former chef from Locale in Summerland is operating his soup and sandwich restaurant. Just excellent, good quality, fresh and local food at reasonable prices. Currently open 11am to 7pm.

My husband and I came here for Valentines day last year and the waiter came over to tell us the specials and suggest great things on the menu and after telling us we asked for a tasty sounding appy he replied that they were out of it within 30sec of telling us how yummy it was. Plus food took far... More

The service was quite good, the atmosphere was perfectly good, the wine was absolutely amazing(2010BlueM'Gamay), the food was good, the appy was fantastic but my Ossobuco was lacking in heat, it was mildly warm and kinda had the consistency of a freshly vacuum packed piece of meat, the flavor was certainly in the sauce, delicious the sauce being it seemed...

My wife and I have had amazing meals here and I have found out that their is a new chef, the food was horribly different, my pork was overdone and lacked in flavor, same with my wife's chicken, and her risotto was replaced with mashed potatoes, when asked about the risotto, we were told that the chef didn't have time...

Wonderful meal. Very beautifully plated. Service was top notch. The prices are high for the amount you get but service atmosphere and plating make up for it.

Very disappointing! I ate at this restaurant a few times last summer, for both lunch and dinner, after i heard there were new owners and a new chef. Although I found the server to be a bit annoying and pushy trying to make us purchase his recommended wines that we did not want, I have gone back because I loved... More

The food at the Amante was incredible, I have never had such a warm and welcoming server in my entire life. Not only was he knowledgable about the food being served he provided some new and interesting insight to other culinary delights. He was incredibly friendly and polite. The best service I have had ever. Now, for the food. We... More

After some time of putting it off, we finally visited Amante in Penticton. The restaurant is very small but still manages to feel rather spacious. The decor is fairly simple but elegant. They offer a tapas menu and a regular menu. After a bit of debate, we each ordered a different entree. Complimentary bread was brought out, warm and steaming... More

My partner and I are in Penticton often because his family is here, but coming from Vancouver we are always disappointed in the lack of quality restaurants right in the town. Yes, you can go to the wineries and get a good meal but in the town, it is pretty slim pickings. Boston Pizza or Earls are not great choices.... More

I had the pleasure of having lunch recently with friends at Amante's. We found the server to be very experienced, extremely pleasant and attentive without hovering over us.The fish chowder that was served with my panini was increditble, as was salad and panini itself; My friends were also impressed with their lunches. With the new owners the food is still... More
