My husband and I went here last week for our second time. Both times were excellent service and excellent food. The food was cooked perfectly, and the flavours were outstanding! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We always make a point of eating at Cafe Amore when we visit the St. Catherines/Niagara area. We go with our elderly mother and are never disappointed. The service is warm and attentive; the food is always great and reasonably priced; and the atmosphere is welcoming. The Chicken Marsala is to die for! We will continue our visits.

I ordered the meatball pasta. Was I received was more like a bowl of soup. There was a lot of liquid (not sauce), which isn't acceptable for such a simple dish. Flavour was just okay.

Best pasta dishes anywhere! The gorgonzola pasta is unforgettable. Pizza is made from scratch, main course salads are delicious and unique. Service is always professional and attentive.

We went to cafe amore for an anniversary dinner. Had the prezzo fisso deal (4 course meal for 25). The ambiance was wonderful, drinks were refilled promptly, the courses came at a good, even pace, and our server was courteous and attentive. Will return in the future!
