Gluten Free - Yes

Sunday afternoon I enjoyed a nice gluten free lunch at Café Amore' but I must let you know that the portions of stuffed sole were way to small, two bite size portions with loads of alfredo sauce. I asked for another gluten free bun to soak up some of the sauce and I was charge for that bun as... read more

Our best decision was to dine at Cafe Amore. The food is wonderful, reasonably priced, and even the wine list is reasonably priced. My wife and I enjoyed salads with a warm roll to start. My wife had the Chicken Marsala and I had the Lazio chicken pasta with chorizo sausage. We were both happy with our main course. The... More

We have visited Cafe Amore before at their older location, and enjoyed it, so we dropped in again after a long absence, for lunch. My wife had the stuffed sole, and enjoyed it. It was still bubbling when it came to the table. But the highlight, for me, was the Pasta Malaga. It was the most intensely flavourful and perfectly... More

The service was ok at best. As for the food the ceased salad was wilted and soggy almost like it was made and then sat waiting to be served. Also the saganaki was incredibly salty. Too bad, I had high hopes.

On a friend's recommendation, 4 of us went for dinner to celebrate a birthday. I can truly say that every mouthful was awesome! It was A Tuesday night, and they had a special prix fixe menu., with lots to choose from, so 3 of us ordered from that. 2 of us had stuffed mushrooms that were to die for, and... More

Something has happened to the kitchen staff and/or the communication channels since around Christmas. I used to order takeout from here at least once per week. Since that time, things have fallen off the rails and I've started reconsidering ordering from there. The last 5 or 6 times I've called, I get told a time (say 10 minutes) only to... More

We wanted to try a restaurant outside of the Falls and saw good reviews for this place on TA so decided to give it a try - glad we did! Hubby had some of the best lamb chops we've ever eaten and I had a seafood stuffing dish - really good but heavily seasoned and could have used a pasta... More
