Best restaurant visited in the St Catherines area

Superb food at very good prices. The 3 course meal offering is excellent value and it can be extended to 4 courses for only 5 dollars more. Greatt atmosphere and humorous, friendly staff.

Very knowledgeable about gluten free (GF) food. Good selection of GF menu options. Always crowded, so a reservation is suggested. Prices are very reasonable for meal sizes served.

I often visit Cafe Amore for business luncheons. The service is always excellent. It is prompt but never rushed. The food is always fresh and tasty.

It's a nice little restaurant with some characters. It's certainly not the fanciest in the area, but very nice and cozy. The food was delicious (though the Canadian pizza was a bit salty) and service was fine. Our waitress Joyce was very helpful. The price was very reasonable. There were 4 of us and we had more than enough food... More

Went for a date night with my boyfriend one Wednesday evening for the first time after many recommendations and it was great. We loved the decor inside - very cozy atmosphere. We had heard about the phenomenal, daily desserts which I was very excited to try so I immediately went to the dessert counter to pick mine for later! The... More

I've now eaten at Cafe Amore twice and both times the food was excellent and the service was great. Their pizza is authentic Italian and I loved it. My husband had their pasta special which had blackened chicken and chorizo sausage in a Gorgonzola cream sauce that was delicious - the Gorgonzola did not overpower the dish and everything was...
