Mediterranean cuisine at its finest.

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.

Excellent menu, incredible food, great service....killer desserts if you could possibly find room! Whether a romantic date, a dinner with friends, a family celebration or a cozy mid week night out, cafe amore manages to cover all bases!

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.

I went for a business lunch to Cafe Amore and unfortunately both of us were unimpressed. I have a pizza which was decent but no over the top qualities. Very basic flavours and the dough was okay. The individual I went with had a salad which was very salty and not a lot of flavour within it. The service was... More

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
