Great Wood Fired Pizza !!

Went for dinner with my wife on Friday night. I would suggest a reservation as the place was packed. We waited 15 minutes for a table, which was ok. The menu is has variety without being overwhelming. We decided to order a pizza and the chicken gorgonzola and share. The chicken came with a... read more

We were a party of 10 booked for a birthday party. Reservations were made two weeks in advance and confirmation was received quickly. We arrived at 6:25 and was made to wait in a very small area with other guests waiting for their reserved tables. We were finally seated at 6:55, when they lugged a fold up table from the... More

My girlfriend and I have been coming here for years and its always been amazing but this time it was quite the contrary. Now I don't know it this place is going downhill or the staff working this particular night were just lacking competence but something was wrong. So for apps I ordered the wings and my girlfriend ordered the... More

Since the day the first restaurant opened on Lake Street, I was hooked. This is hands down the best restaurant in Niagara and one of my favourite restaurants of all! The owners are wonderful, as are the pastas and desserts. The daily specials are always such interesting combinations and you are always greeted as if you are an old friend,... More

We have dined here before and this was a restaurant that we would always look forward to going to, that special place where food, atmosphere and service were all great. Our recent visit was a bit disappointing, service was okay but the food was plain rather than great. They were quite busy which may be the reason for the lack... More

If you are a vegetarian/vegan ... It is a limited menu choice ... For the quality of food ... I found it over priced. You can get far better food for less ... I would not recommend this place ....

Easily accessed in west St.Catharines with ample parking, I have dined at Cafe Amore many times and because the food is usually excellent at a reasonable price, I would normally highly recommend it. However, on a recent visit, the food was less than acceptable. The bruschetta bread was charred. My sword fish was slightly over-cooked and the beans were so... More

We go to this restaurant a lot as we can always count on a fabulous meal. We take our friends and neighbours too. The price set menu is great for those on a budget, Sunday to Thursday you can get a great meal for 20.00. Check their web site for the days to make sure. The deserts are amazing too.

Everything was great, food, service and prices. Very friendly, hospitable, and attentive staff. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone. You have a choice of booths or tables. Drinks were a reasonable price also.
