First off, I will mention that most people I know really enjoy Cafe Amore. I have visited several times and just have never been struck by their menu or atmosphere - even when they had more than one location. Tables are a little too close together for my liking. Average menu, priced a little on the high side for what... More

The lunch menu has enough options without being burdened with too many choices, and everything looks good. The food is good, but the portion sizing is not consistent. The stuffed sole, although excellent if you like lots of garlic and butter, was a modest portion compared to some of the pasta offerings. The ambience is comfortable and casual. The server... More

My husband and I enjoyed the paella for two! Great flavor. Very traditional. Service was great! Date night menu is fun and reasonable in price. Portions are smaller but adequate. Unless you want to pig out /gorge. Leave satisfied with a taste meal.

I went to Cafe Amora with a couple of girlfriends. I'm vegan, so I asked the server if they would be able to make some of vegetarian dishes vegan. After talking to the chef, the server informed me that they wouldn't be able to, but offered to make me a pasta dish off the menu. I had 5 different options... More

Yet again, another fabulous meal. We brought friends this time who had never been to this yummy restaurant and they were raving as well. The Caesar salad is a favorite of mine and the pasta is always perfect. The dessert window never disappoints either. Brava, Cafe Amore!

Hadn't been here in years. Went for dinner with a friend & have no regrets. Ambience is nice, service was very good. Had the eggplant parmesan which includes a salad with a soft breadstick. Friend had chicken parmesan. Good variety to choose from. We both enjoyed our meals & found the sauce to be just enough. Portions were generous, we... More

We went to Café Amore for an evening meal. Great Italian food, wonderfully prepared with home made deliciousness. My partner had the chicken parm with penne which came with a choice of salad and a lovely home made bread stick. Another bread stick came with the meal. The penne was done al dente, just perfect. I had the meat lovers... More
