Buon Appetito

We do not get to Burlington often, but have known that we wanted to eat at L'amante on our next visit. We were not disappointed. The décor is straightforward and free of the bric-a-brac that shouts out, "You are in an Italian restaurant". It is all about the food, and the food is very good. I... read more

Lovely evening here. The place is nicely done -- elegant but in discrete way so you can relax. Server was very knowledgeable about all the foods and wines and enjoyed discussing options -- good for foodies. We had some good dishes including a shared steak that was outstanding and fried zucchini blossoms (the goat cheese was barely noticeable which I... More

L'Amante is a must try when in Burlington, VT. The food is prepared with excellence by a Husband and Wife team that has been in the business for years. The pasta are amazing and the Squash Blossom Fritters are just outstanding. Everything is fresh and never reheated. The wine choices are also perfect for menue as well. Worth noting is... More

Again, a delightful experience, from the warm greeting at the door to the well prepared food. The grilled calamari appetizer was tasty, especially with the spicy, wilted bed of radicchio drizzled with balsamic vinegar. The halibut in one of the specials was delicious and was a hefty serving. The pan seared duck breast was a trifle overdone (medium and not... More

Our starter was squash flower, stuffed with cream cheese, battered and deep fried, delicious, I then opted for lobster with saffron rice, right up my street, beautiful...the atomosphere was a bit cold, the service was good but the food was fantastic. Would definitely recommend.

While visiting the Blue Paddle Bistro in South Hero, the bartender told me about L'amante. Close to my hotel, I struck out on this rainy evening and dropped in. They were able to seat me immediately, although they were very busy. I would recommend larger parties make a reservation. The wait staff were excellent and the food came out hot... More

This place is simply fantastic and is your best bet for an intimate dinner with a significant other, a business dinner, or any special event. Great service, outstanding food, and great atmosphere. I have been to L'Amante a number of times and it never disappoints.

This was our second visit to L'amante and the menu pleased us as much as the first time - The bread they serve is the best country bread served w two spreads and olive oil if requested- You must try the squash blossom stuffed w taleggio cheese - drizzled with the local honey and splash of truffle oil!
