The food was the best I've had.

The entire experience was excellent and I look forward to going back! The place is small so I would highly recommend reservations.

Amore is a small quaint restaurant (seating for 30) with attentive staff and great food. Would definitely suggest reservations. The rolls are hot and delicious. The salads and entrees are quite good. The portions are generous. Don't leave without a cannoli.

This is a good Italian food place off the heavy track of the city. Peaceful, great for family gathering and conversation friendly. I had a great dish of veal and past, some of us had flounder. Everybody praised the food and atmosphere. The service could be reevaluated: always hasty to push us to order next course, next drink, next next,... More

My Dear Friends from Birmingham took us to eat at this restaurant in May. The atmosphere was great and lent itself to some good conversation with our friends that we don't get an opportunity to see but a couple of times a year...I was torn between the eggplant Parmesean and the spaghetti and meatballs...I chose the spaghetti and it was...

Outstanding food and great service. The portions were huge. We were there with our whole family and the owner offered to take pictures for us on her phone and texted them to us. Really couldn't have had a better experience.

Friday night and we're home at 9pm and we chatted with friends outside the restaurant for at least 20 minutes. We were meeting another couple at this restaurant for what would be our second visit. The first time in December. We arrived ahead of the other couple and are informed that we cannot be seated until they arrive. Other restaurants... More

Great tasty Italian menu. Small restaurant. Be sure to get reservations as I doubt if walk-ins can be seated very often.

The restaurant is small so you feel the personal attention. I loved the dim lighting and coziness. The meatball appetizer was amazing and the perfect size for two to share. My husband had the veal parmigiana and I had the veal piccata. We agreed we liked the parm better but both were very good. Had the chocolate mousse for dessert... More

It was by far the one of the best restaurants in Alabama. The food and the service was amazing. Definitely worth trying!

I went with several family members. My Homemade Ravioli was fabulous, the best white sauce I have ever had. The ravioli was stuffed with mozzarella cheese and heirloom tomatoes. The Mussels in a garlic Rue were also excellent.
