Unexpectedly good.

We ate there for lunch and the food was very good. We got the carnavale pizza. Was fantastic. Waitress brought out really good bread with our drinks. Bread was great, better than most restaurants. I got a salad with my lunch that had a creamy parmessan dressing. Never had that before and it was... read more

I went to Carrabba's instead of my "goto" italian restaurant (The Grapevine) because my wife likes Carrabbas' sauce better. For me, The Grapevine has great specials, great food and the best service, but Carrabba's is still a good choice over something like Olive Garden. I had the SPIEDINO DI MARE, which is shrimp and sea scallops coated with Italian bread... More

I love the Tilapia Nocciola, lightly breaded with hazelnuts. I just wish they had more of a selection of sides. The pastas are wonderful and generous in size. The bread is perfect and I have a hard time resisting eating too much bread, so that I have to bring my entrée home.

My wife and I love this place. The food is really done well and I mean with a chef's touch. Some of the entrees can be pricy but it's well worth it. The booths are set a bit close together and that is not very comfortable so I recommend some attention here but otherwise it's great atmosphere

On January 24, 2015 my daughter and I had an early dinner here. We were seated right away as it was only 5 PM. We both ordered the Sangria, one peach and one red. They were both very good and generous. We ordered the grilled chicken and the rigatoni martino. Both were very good. Our server Jacob W. was very... More

Great food but a little pricey. I do recommend calling ahead to save time getting seated. They have s great menu but they really do need to expand. A great experience overall

Good food for a reasonable price. The restaurant has recently added more seating so the wait is less.

My wife and I always enjoy eating here. The Italian menu is really well thought out and done well. Today I had a veal Marsala with a Lombardo wine sauce and it was just so rich and awesome that I couldnt take my time eating it! The olive oil you get with your bread is also very high quality olive... More

1st take out experience here with a travelzoo offer - wonderful. Bread salad and pork loin entree - enough to feed 2 and delicious. Highly recommended

My friend and I decided to try the Amore Monday menu. It did not disappoint, and we will definitely try this again. The food was great, and the service was very good too! This may be a chain restaurant, but they do it right! Try it! You won't be disappointed.
