We visited this restaurant on a Friday night. The place is very quaint, and just beautiful! We were seated right away, which was great, but it took almost 15 minutes for the server to come take our drink order. When the drinks arrived, 10 minutes later, she set them down on the table and left. We were starving and ready... More

I have been here numerous times when visiting the Niagara region and have always enjoyed the food. I drove from Niagara Falls this evening to bring my husband who has never dined here. We arrived at 9:35 pm and were told we can't dine because the kitchen usually closes at 9:45. Closing time is listed at 10 p.m. There were... More

My daughter took me there for my birthday on July 14. We arrived and waited 20 minutes while servers were running by us saying the hostess will be with us-the hostess never acknowledged us at all, finally a waitress sat us. When ordering the waitress Teresa snapped at my daughter when she was talking to me explaining the menu saying... More

Went there a month ago, had some appetizers and one main as a light Saturday evening meal. My wife has mussels and I had spaghetti, both were acceptable. Staff were more pleasant in a 'non-fake' way than the average. I am a bit at a loss here - its nice, nothing TERRIBLY special IMO, but you won't go wrong going... More

Been to Cafe Amore probably about a dozen times. Food is always great. Get a dessert from there dessert case. Sooo many delicious cakes to try. Service is usually good. One time they gave away our reservation to another group of 8 by mistake. And we had to wait a bit. But they make up for it, by giving our... More

This is a wonderful lunch spot and no doubt dinner would be very good as well. We enjoyed the grilled shrimp appetizer and the chevre pecan salad. The shrimp came with fresh, warm bread for dipping - great! For our entrée we shared the eggplant parmesan - nicely done with a sweet tomato sauce. Everything tasted fresh and perfectly seasoned....

Wanted my husband to try Spanish paella and this is the nearest restaurant I can find that serves Spanish paella. We ordered that and the Poseidon pasta. There were plenty of different kind of seafood on both entree. I never had such a good pasta before around here. Moreover, the service was good and we didn't have to wait very... More
