My daughter took me there for my birthday on July 14. We arrived and waited 20 minutes while servers were running by us saying the hostess will be with us-the hostess never acknowledged us at all, finally a waitress sat us. When ordering the waitress Teresa snapped at my daughter when she was talking to me explaining the menu saying... More

Went there a month ago, had some appetizers and one main as a light Saturday evening meal. My wife has mussels and I had spaghetti, both were acceptable. Staff were more pleasant in a 'non-fake' way than the average. I am a bit at a loss here - its nice, nothing TERRIBLY special IMO, but you won't go wrong going... More

Been to Cafe Amore probably about a dozen times. Food is always great. Get a dessert from there dessert case. Sooo many delicious cakes to try. Service is usually good. One time they gave away our reservation to another group of 8 by mistake. And we had to wait a bit. But they make up for it, by giving our... More

This is a wonderful lunch spot and no doubt dinner would be very good as well. We enjoyed the grilled shrimp appetizer and the chevre pecan salad. The shrimp came with fresh, warm bread for dipping - great! For our entrée we shared the eggplant parmesan - nicely done with a sweet tomato sauce. Everything tasted fresh and perfectly seasoned....

Wanted my husband to try Spanish paella and this is the nearest restaurant I can find that serves Spanish paella. We ordered that and the Poseidon pasta. There were plenty of different kind of seafood on both entree. I never had such a good pasta before around here. Moreover, the service was good and we didn't have to wait very... More

Visited this fine establishment many times. Essentially Italian - good variety and what you'd expect. Decent atmosphere but not a romantic trattoria. Lots of food!

My husband and I along with our friends come to Cafe Amore for all special occasions...birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The food is out of this world and the service is great. You can even request a quieter area when you make reservations and I recommend making reservations. Be prepared to eat garlic. The Caesar salad is loaded with it.The desserts are... More

Used to work nearby (10 years ago) and went occasionally for lunch at that time. It was 'ok'. Have been twice in the past month for dinner and it's upgraded to amazing! Food is served very hot, great taste, outstanding service, and they have (by far) the best Gluten Free menu in town. They even have a $20 full meal... More
