Amazing bday lunch.

Hi. We were on our way to Niagara Falls to enjoy my husband birthday. We decided to give this cafe a try for lunch. It was superb, the waiter was awesome and lunch was to die for. I will and would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Enjoy your lunch.

Cafe Amore is a popular restaurant. We stopped in on a Saturday evening without a reservation but they were able to seat us with only a 15 minute wait. The entrance way is small with a good view of the wood oven where you can watch someone prepare loaves of parmesan garlic bread. This was my first time at this... More

Great menu, service and food. Their paella is to die for. Everything is fresh and well prepared. If you manage to save room for dessert, you will not be disappointed. Sharing is aways an option.

Service was very good. Food was OK. Caesar salad was one of the worst we've had. It did not meet our expectation given the rating and reviews seen on Trip Advisor which we depend on for guidance.

Although service was slow, the results were worth it. Lovely goat cheese and roasted garlic with crustini bread appetizer, followed by very generous portions of pasta. Dessert had to be a take-home to enjoy later as we were too full!

Last night I had dinner. Because I have been before, I brought six other people with me, to experience a great meal. Everyone raved about their dinner. The server (Alex) was very knowledgeable, and efficient. What an enjoyable night.
