Great food and service for the price. Wood oven pizza, great pasta dishes, huge selection, fantastic service Al the proprietor still floats around the restaurant meeting his customers

I went there for a friend's birthday. I had been meaning to go to this place for a long time, and finally had the chance. Most of us went for the 3 course $20 menu (called the Prezzo Fisso menu). Most of us enjoyed our food, had plenty of bread whenever we asked for it. Service was somewhat slow, and... More

It was very busy (we didnt make a reservation, but should have!) but we still got a seat fairly quickly. Food was reasonably priced for very good quality ingredients. I liked the caesar salad and it came with delicious warm buttery bread. My seafood was cooked perfectly and my husband loved his steak. We also got the goat cheese and... More

Caesar salad was less than average. Watery taste. Lettuce too cold. Very disappointing. Although we enjoyed our entrees, compared to what a 4.5+ rated restaurant in Toronto or other large cities, this would rate a solid 3. No more.

Three cheese or bacon and mushroom. My friend had the broccoli cauliflower soup which he enjoyed. I had a garden salad which was a bit too cold for my liking. Andrew... More

My cousins and I met for dinner during the Christmas holidays. The food was beyond delicious! I had the eggplant parmesan, and it was the best I have ever eaten. The portion sizes were great. We also ordered the spinach artichoke dip, it arrived hot and to die for. We also ordered the fudge cake, I almost cried! This is... More

Café Amore is the place to be for a totally delicious gluten free meal. I had the shrimp alfredo and it was to die for. Their gluten free bun was perfect as well. The staff was very respectful to my needs and pleasant. I would highly recommend Café Amore for a gluten free good meal !!!! Three thumbs up!!!

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.
