We dined here with another couple. When you drive up, the exterior is not remarkable as it is located in a shopping strip on US Highway 280. When you open the door, you enter another world of dimmed lighting and background music (Sinatra) in an intimate space. It is a small establishment but it has an extensive Italian menu. There...

Very average!! Read reviews before going and big disappointment. So not worth the money! The cheapest bottle f wine was 62 dollars! Not going back there. But the waiters were very sweet.

If you read the reviews you can see we don't serve plastic food. Out "cheapest" bottle of wine is 32 dollars. I should not be responding to this, but plasticky? Really? More

Visited here for the first time in a few years. As in the past, the place is dimly lit, I suppose this is meant to make it romantic, but it also makes it extremely hard to read the menu. In the past we have been very please with the food, and I must say the veal marsala which I had... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal and a 5 Star experience. The attention to detail was amazing and the staff was more than accommodating. The crab cakes are truly heaven on earth. I could go on and on, but to the point, we can't wait to go back. Great Job Amore!

I have eaten here many times since I posted about this place and it has always been a great experience with the exception of having to wait for our table on occasion. I am writing another review because the wait problem has been solved. They have expanded the seating by at least two times and have added a bar which... More

I had a vendor come to town and offered to take me to dinner. At their request we met here. I was unfamiliar with the restaurant but obliged. The place is something out of old new york.
