Service, food atmosphere were all exceptional. Especially on a very busy graduation and prom weekend. This is an upscale place with an emphasis on Italian but with a very versatile menu. We had the squash blossoms for an app, yummy. I had the quail and it was fantastic! The wines are expensive but very good selection. Great celebration type place.

Went there as a part of Vermont Restaurant Week but didn't have the special menu. The food was good, but not on a par with other top restaurants in the Burlington area. Sent back two bottles of bad wine. My potato encrusted sea bass was good, but not spectacular. ambience and service were OK, but not outstanding. There are better... More

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 know it is not... 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
