We went to this cafe based on a recommendation. There was a large and diverse menu. We shared the paella. I have to say it was so salty, we ended up drinking over five glasses of water each. Neither of us wanted to take home the leftovers. Desserts looked good. I may try going there again to try something different.

Average meals all around. No one had anything outstanding. Salad dressing for the Caesar was bland & dressing for the garden salad was almost non existent. Bread stick was the best part of of meal.

After a day under the rain in Ste-Catharines, we found Cafe Amore on TripAdvisor and we understand the reasons why it is very well ranked. We decided to sit outside and the waitress Caitlin gave us an excellent service. The food was very tasty and of good quality. The portions were a fair size and the prices reasonable.. A new... More

I always come here for a pint and a piece of cake with my lady friends. Great prices and the patio is nice in the summer.

We thoroughly enjoy the food at this restaurant! We have come here several times now. All meals come with a salad and bread (I believe). The bread and desserts are especially noteworthy! We also enjoyed our main course, of course. I ordered a pasta (with grilled chicken in it), and my spouse ordered a chicken dish. We highly recommend this... More

I have only been here twice so far and both times for lunch. The menu is quite expansive and quite reasonable. The food is always fresh and the service is fast and friendly. The ham and asperagas quiche is wonderful and the desserts..........mmmmm! They now have a wood-fired pizza oven and even though I haven't tried one yet, they smell... More

This is one of our favourite local restaurants. The staff are very experienced and helpful. The food delivery is well paced and you never feel rushed. The menu is Mediterranean based and varied. Most importantly the quality is always high. They have a good wine selection which is reasonably priced.
