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!!!

Amore looks like it might be a bit rubbish from outside but it is not unlike any other cosy Italian inside. The menu is quite mixed but not much for vegetarian options, if it's not busy they'll do a half portion of something from the main menu for children which is a bonus as the children's menu doesn't have many...

Always a warm welcome from Tony. A truly nice restaurant to dine with family. The prices are slightly expensive compare to similar Italian Restaurants around but its worth it. Its over looking the marine and sea. Not many choices for sweets but that is ok because you will be full with them portions anyway!

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

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
