“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The food is excellent, the service is very good. The owner stopped by to visit as did the Chef. The only negative was the Margherita pizza. We expected fresh chunks of tomato and fresh basil. We received toppings which were finely chopped. The lasagna was excellent. Our skewered beef tips were very good. Portions were more than ample. We will definitely return. This visit centered around a special Bon Voyage' occasion and we certainly will return for a celebratory "Welcome Home".

“Best Italian Restaurant in Michigan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The food, service and staff are the best! The lasagna, risotto balls and chocolate truffles are great! The fresh fish of the day is always cooked to perfection and Jenna is an amazing host!!

“Authentic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

A popular option in the area, but we were accommodated quickly. A large dining room, with the usual "Italian" decor and posters. The menu selection is large and the waitress we had seemed knowledgeable and had definite recommendations. The Caesar Salad we shared was very food and so was the lobster pasta, though perhaps a little more seasoning and lobster would have made it perfect!
We ate at a number of places round Comstock Park, and Amore was by far the best option we found.

“Not much from the outside...but once inside - Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

My friend and I went to Amore at the suggestion of colleagues we were working with. We had been told that it wasn't much from the outside, but give it a chance. We were so happy we did. The staff was amazing. the food was incredible and so fresh. They are also very accommodating to the desires of their patrons. Case in point, my friend asked if she could swap out potatoes for pasta. They were more then happy to do so. We also were treated to a tasting of tiramisu and some chococello. Delicious. We cannot believe we almost let our visit to GR not include a visit to this wonderful restaurant.
