I have been to Café Amore, regularly for the past few years and have never had a bad experience. The food and atmosphere is always good and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Their seafood dishes are excellent as well as any of their past dishes. I generally have their steak and it is always perfectly cooked.

I visited Cafe Amore for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The service was wonderful I had a young man who was very informative and sweet. The food was spectacular and the desert was divine. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Their menu is diversified enough for any palette and they have many choices for celiacs in the pastas and other foods. Service is always good as well as the food. It is one of our go to places when the girls need a night out.

Ive gone probably 50+ times over the years. Depending on your server, you can have great service or poor service. The décor is really not impressive and actually overwhelming with the black and white theme. The booths are very uncomfortable as they are slanted and worn. Use to love the food but feel like they've lost focus on it. It... More

Quaint atmosphere. Tasty selection of food. Good value, reasonable prices. We had a prix fixe menu and all components were delicious. They were happy to make personal substitutions. Great for girls nights or a date night. We will definitely go back!

Cafe Amore has great atmosphere. Usually have dinner on a weekend here. The Mediterranean style food is fantastic. From appetizer to entree to dessert--the selection is amazing. Never had any complaints.

Went there for dinner, no reservation, so we were asked to sit outside on the patio. Okay with this until another customer without a reservation was given a table in the dining room. Very unprofessional and discriminating. Will NEVER GO BACK!
