Really good, reasonably priced, upscale Italian restaurant in Burlington. Had a wonderful diner there midweek. It was very full even tho it was a mid-July Wednesday night. Quality appetizers good, but not overwhelming entrees. Lobster special was outstanding. Shortcoming is that it is not lakeside. But, you trade a good view for superior food. Otherwise, when full it is very... More

We were in the mood for a "special dinner" at a "special" Restaurant after a long drive to Burlington. We found it when we looked in the window of L'Amante and came back for dinner later that evening. The nice, private corner table that we requested was waiting for us, along with an extremely charming and efficient server named Stephanie.... More

Very French bistro feeling, nice bar area, also has outdoor seating. All food selections are very large and great presentation. I would not order the duck again. First of all they indicate it will be 1/2 a duck. To me, that is not the same as two legs with thighs.

L'amante is a wonderful restaurant on College St. in downtown Burlington. The service is consistently great, the food is consistently good but their specials are fabulous. Personally, I like seafood and fish and my husband is more of a meat person but at L'amante they do both very well, no compromise needing when having dinner there.

Took some business associates to L'Amante tonight and once again I was so happy with our meal. Since the others had not been before I recommended my favorites, stuffed squash blossoms and grilled calamari to start. Excellent as always. My favorite, potato crusted sea bass was excellent. The rib eye for two is the absolute best! No one at the... More

L'amante offers a great atmosphere in its ideal location in downtown Burlington. The service was exceptional! I had the swordfish, while my partner had steak and I must say they were both cooked to perfection. I highly recommend L'amante for both its food and wine offerings! *Suggestion*- remember that metered parking is free after 6, while there is a public... More

We stumbled over this small restaurant on our first night in Burlington, as we were walking from the Hilton up the hill to get to Church St and the night life. L’amante is just 2-3 blocks from the Hilton on College St, and we were taken by the atmosphere as we were walking by. Since it was the first place... More

We recently celebrated our son's birthday here. All of our meals were very good. The swordfish and the potato encrusted sea bass were excellent. We always make a point of dining here when we visit Burlington. We have never been disappointed. it would be nice if they would add candles on tables and more art on the walls to make... More

After waiting 45 minutes for our reserved table, I will say that the meal was not worth the wait. Fish overlooked, pasta over salted, but most importantly, it was so loud in the main dining area! Take a seat in the bar area, much quiter. Having loved the restaurant in the past, it was a disappointment this time.
