We had a great experience at Café Amore. Open from 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. serving lunch and dinner. The service was fast and efficient, our server was very friendly and she had a great sense of humour. The food came in order, quickly, one dish after another. We were never left sitting... read more

Went here for my daughters 11th birthday. We all loved the food. It is fresh and tastes great. The waiter was terrible however. He just had no social skills. They need to change their wait staff!!!!

The food at this place was actually very good. Very good portion sizes, and very good taste. Wasn't a huge fan of the calamari, or the vibe in there but the food and waitress were very nice. I would definitely go again. Great place.

Food was good and large menu that had something for everyone! The waiter we had was not very efficient and didn't clear plates which makes the small tables cluttered. The bread sticks would have been better if they were warned.

Excellent food, excellent prices. My husbands favorite is the Veal Parmesan. He gets the red sauce on the Veal and the Alfredo on his pasta. I love many dishes there. For the vegetarian; the mushroom ravioli is delicious. Very rich though. The meat lovers is for very big eaters or if you like to have lunch the next day as... More

It's been awhile since we ate in at Café Amore and the reason being was that the service on the evening we were there was awful. We brought our issues to the owner who listened and consoled us by not billing us. We had a gift certificate from our son and since have had another one given to us by... More

Went for dinner with a friend. we ordered off the $20 menu in which you get a starter, a salad or soup and a entree. Options for this are fantastic. Had the hot shrimp.. yum. The ceasar salad is not my taste. I like creamy dressing, and this is very "vinegary". The steak was ordered medium. It came out rare.... More

Had the best pizza ever in years. Extra cheese, black olives, mushrooms, ham and pineapple. Congratulated the person who made it. Unknowingly, it came with a really good salad and their buns. We were happy! Crispy thin crust. Go back for more. P.s. 2-6 pm beer prices lowered and 9 oz wine for price of 6 oz.

I have heard rave reviews of this restaurant from family and friends, so my bestie and I decided to try this place to celebrate my bday. Atmosphere is nice, has a rustic , european feel to it, a nice wood buring oven to cook pizzas in and a cake display window that would leave any dessert lovers mouth watering. But... More

It can be a little loud at times, but the food is excellent. We've always had great food and great service here, but it's disappointing when you're looking for a romantic dinner and get seated beside a large noisy group.
