It is a small, dimly lit, cozy little place, with truly Italian atmosphere. Reservations are recommended. Truly a pleasant experience!

My husband made 7:30 dinner reservations for Valentine's day. Having read great reviews and the daily menu, we decided to venture beyond the always delicious Gian Marco's. We arrived on time and had about a 5 minute wait before being seated. First problem came when we declined ordering wine. Our waiter poured a glass of water, offered no other beverage... More

Went for Valentines DAy, two days early. Our first visit...we have wanted to go for a long time due to good reviews from a friend...we hate to get in 280 traffic. IT IS WORTH IT! You can see why you need reservations at night...the place is so small, but it is a jewel and you are treated accordingly! Our greeter... More

This place is truly a hidden treasure. Small and intimate. They are so nice, you don't feel rushed. The food, OH MY MY MY, truly authentic Italian food. The food was so fresh and hot. They give you a lot of food, could have divided mines into 2 meals. HIGHLY recommend reservations at least a week out. They are also... More

Excellent restaurant! It's tiny, so be sure to make reservations. The owners were very flexible and were able to seat us earlier than expected. The rolls were out of this world;I only wish they would share the recipe. The menu had great options for beef, seafood, pork. This is very much a gem. The service was only topped by the... More

I have to say I was surprised! The service was very attentive. The food was really exceptional. The Grouper and Crab cake Entree I ordered was outstanding! I enjoyed rolls, bruschetta, a house salad, and steamed clams as an appetizer. I also ordered a cosmopolitan while we waited on our table. Very nice! I want to say, I am not... More

What a great restaurant. The owner and his staff go out of their way to accommodate the wishes of their guests. The food is top notch equally if not better than NYC. Never heard a negative thing about this great place. Will continue to go there as much as we can.

This out of the way, tiny little place, is worth driving miles to get to. One might never expect to find such a classy place in an office-like building next to a dentist and mortgage company. Reservations are required because it has limited seating, and the chef plans the daily menu changes based on expectations. There are daily specials, but... More

This little gem of a restaurant is in a rather plain strip mall. However, don't be fooled by exterior looks as inside it is truly a welcoming and romantic atmosphere. The appetizers were incredible. We shared several. The main courses were all fantastic.I had the pork tenderloin tips and they were absolutely delicious. The caprice salad was extremely fresh and... More

My husband and I were visiting from out of town and found Amore on trip advisor. The food was excellent, wonderful atmosphere, and really great service. I would recommend reservations. Will definitely visit again.
