My dinner was quite good.

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

Ti Amo is located in a strip mall in Hoffman Estates, Il. There IS ample parking but if you come during the week the place will be empty and it will frankly look just like any other Mexican restaurant in the NW Suburbs of Chicago that serves spaghetti and meatballs and canned misestrone; it is supposed to be Italian. No... More

We've passed this restaurant for years and never stopped in. Last night we went there and were delighted with the service. The chef even came out to see if our food was ok. It was VERY good. We will certainly be back. The restaurant wasn't crowded but then on a Sunday evening I didn't expect it to be crowded. We... More

Tucked in a corner and back from the street Ti Amo is a jewel of a restaurant that doesn't seem to get much action except for weekends and sometimes the crowd even then can be lean. I have visited this restaurant five or six times and have never left disappointed. Last night I was there with two of my friends.... More
