GREAT FOOD, MEH ATMOSPHERE

This restaurant deserves a "good rating" between average & very good. My friend & I visited on a Saturday night with a Groupon. Service was initially off, no water at the table and we need to flag our server down. It gave me the impression they were short staffed or supremely busy due to the... read more

Amazing food, great staff and Chief Gar is the best. Never left there hungry. Great place to take friends!

Greatly enjoyed my first visit to Ti Amo, The Penne Arrabbiata was superb, the pasta done perfectly. Others at the table greatly enjoyed their meals. The service was pleasant and unhurried. The restaurant and lounge are warm and inviting,

I did like the food here and the wine pour was decent. My complaint is...the noisy bar that penetrates into the restaurant.

2 stars overall because of poor service, overpriced entrees, and food lacks flavor. My entree Pollo alla Francese was really a 3.5 but after I factor in the experience and the overall taste, this place is a 2 star. 2 stars goes to my entree and the live singer =). My entree was great but the soup was tasteless and... More

We received a server that apparently was still training, so the service suffered. The food itself was nothing special. The worst part about this Italian restaurant was that it played American pop radio. If you are going there for a nice dinner, do you really want to hear Ludicrous? The atmosphere was ruined by that. Overall, nothing special.

We frequent this restaurant because of Chef Gar. The food is delicious and very fresh and well prepared. We love the fish and veal. Drinks are well made and generous. The inside of the restaurant could use some updating but overall very comfortable . Service is good and attentive. Priced competitively and offers good value.

Ti Amo Café Italiano is located in a suburban strip mall on Golf Road in Hoffman Estates, but once inside you are immediately transported to an outstanding romantic nightspot back in the "old neighborhood" The meals are fresh, home-made, and delicious. The service is friendly and attentive. Not a corporate chain operation but your hosts are the hard-working and dedicated... More

I would rated Ti Amos as one of the better restaurants in the northwest suburbs of CHICAGO, the staff are very friendly and always are asking if you needed any help. The wine listed is very good and the menu is very clear with explanations of the content of the food to be served and the menu items that you... More
