Awesome

My wife were on vacation in June we were looking for a place to eat and we found this little family run restaurant and I have to say that the service and food was great we even went back the next morning for breakfast. I would highly recommend this place to everyone visiting the area.

We had four Harley couples coming home from the Smokies, and we are lucky to have spotted AMORE! The couple that run this gem were very pleasant, and the food was far better than expected. Portions are huge and high quality. All eight of us were pleasantly plump when we left. I wish we lived closer so we could return... More

The best food on the mountain without belonging to a private club. This is a hard working couple creating an excellent experience. Jose's talents are amazing.

Run by a lovely and caring couple, Amore serves good everyday food with a few fancier options on the daily specials. Every dish we've had (after multiple visits) have been good. Plus they willingly offer options to the menued items. Very popular with the locals, you're as likely as to run into a local contractor as you are a titans... More

This is one of those places that you would never expect to find it where it is. In fact, if you don't know the area you may miss it altogether. But once you eat here, you will feel you discovered one of the most authentic places to eat in the South. You get incredibly good food at a fair price... More

From the outside, you cannot tell what delight awaits you. It was a bit cool outside and they had a gas fire place going. The interior is cabin-style, very cozy. The server was friendly. The menu has a good variety. I have never had a pizza that tasted so good as their hand-tossed Italian Stallion. They also offer really yummy... More

So glad we found this quaint restaurant in Lake Toxaway. We tried their "all you can eat" breakfast that was actually brought to the table rather than on a buffet. The waitress asked what we wanted and we said, "everything"! Our eggs were prepared to order and they were accompanied by bacon, ham, grits, hash browns, biscuits w/gravy, and toast.... More

When driving by Amore you would not expect the food to be so excellent. Amazing beefalo burger. The special dinner entrees are delicious. The pizza was made with fresh ingredients and flavours mixed to perfection. The atmosphere was surprisingly casual and sophisticated at the same time. Rustic decor with classical Italian music made for a pleasant dining experience.

Amore was a very pleasant surprise. Curb appeal/branding is, well average, so we were expecting food to be the same - but there are limited options in the area and we wanted to give it a try. The waitress didn't have an evening menu to share, but did recite a list of very interesting entrees which sounded creative; alas, it... More
