Description: Amore is warm, inviting and it has the buzz of somewhere genuinely special. Bringing a dash of Chic Milan to Sunderland, Amore has created a modern yet welcoming restaurant, which retains a rustic feel despite its chic design. NEW A LA CARTE MENU LAUNCHING MID APRIL - we are changing a few things here, the popular Italian dishes are still available however, we are now also offering NEW CUISINE that one would not associate being with other Italian Restaurants. Our A La Carte section of the menu is ITALIAN FUSION CUISINE, consisting of Italian Chicken, Fish, Steak & Meat dishes fused with Spices and Flavours from other Continents of the World. We have been here for 6 years now, time to take our Cuisine up to another level with Rommel our HEAD CHEF. We hope do enjoy it!!!

Having visited the old amore which used to be in town it would only feel right to visit the restaurant at its new location as we thoroughly enjoyed it. Once again the food and service was excellent and I have been to the new location around 4 times now. I usually order the prawns in garlic which is served with... More

Ignore the negative reviews for this restaurant, why not tell the staff their and then if your not happy, at least give them the chance to rectify it, they are inly humans after all. Simply go and judge it for your self. We have visited this restaurant many many times.... I can honestly say Amore is one of the best... More

I visited amore many times when it was at Tavistock and ran by the old owners. However the last time I went at Tavistock someone else had took over and I hated my meal. When I saw that it had moved to roker I was optimistic that it was ran by the old owners and couldn't wait to eat the... More

Visited recently after a number of good reviews and recommendations. Have to say, overall, it was a let down. Walking past the chef with the door open to the tiny kitchen going in kind of ruined the magic straight away, as other reviewers have mentioned! We both had potato skins to start, which were OK - nothing more. For the... More

First visit to this restaurant and it won't be the last. Friendly staff made us very welcome. Good seating in the windows where we enjoyed a lovely sea view. The food was very nice and piping hot. Thank you. You made our visit a very happy one. See you again soon.

I visited this restaurant with my family. The waiter was very patronising and over jolly. I ordered sirloin steak and veg and was really disappointed with the quality. I told the waiter and he said “ They sold loads yesterday” not very good feedback to a complaint !! It wasn’t cheap either !!! Wouldn’t go back.

Booked this restaurant for a social occasion with friends, based upon many good/excellent reviews. I don't consider myself difficult to please when dining out, but this was disappointing. The entrance itself is unwelcoming being up a dingy, narrow staircase, past the open kitchen door where a staff member was sitting on the floor on his mobile phone as we passed.... More

Having visited the previous venue at Tavistock place, this location is much better...the view over the river gives an excellent setting..The main menu is not too extensive showing that fresh produce is used. With a special £10.00 two course menu including a glass of wine,this is a great place to go.

The food traditional Italian in a modern setting, the service was excellent and the food as expected, as mostly pizza chosen. Would book again.
