This place is one of our favorite places in B'ham! The atmosphere is great and the food matches it perfectly.

From the moment we entered this surprisingly sleek modern restaurant and were welcomed at the door by the owners, it was a wonderful evening. This was our first visit there. We each ordered something different (with a special request or two), and everyone was delighted with their meal. The desserts, freshly made that morning, were awesome. The wait staff were... More

We first started coming here when they first opened and it was truly a wonderful experience in every way. They expanded and things were not too bad but very different as expected. Well it's been a little over 6 months and things have gotten very bad. The four servers that we had were very targeted on uncharging us on waters,... More

Absolutely THE best Alabama dining experience we've ever had!!! Ms D. and I celebrated in grand style at Amore' Ristorante' with Chef Dino, our hostess Angela, and restaurant manager Richard, this past Saturday. Craving a really really good Italian meal since we returned from Venice, Ms D. and I were both stunned by the exceptional food, outstanding service, and old... More

Love this place and try to go several times per year. If you drink the best wine, it is not cheap but always worth it . The service is phenomenal and the food is as good as anywhere in Birmingham , in my opinion. I hesitate to write this note because I prefer it remains intimate and fighting large crowds... More

This is the best Italian restaurant I have been to in my entire life. It is well worth fighting the traffic on 280. The staff were great and the food was phenomenal! It was expensive but well worth every cent.

My wife and I had heard good things about Amore, so we selected it for a special dinner on our anniversary. The restaurant is located in a shopping strip on one of Birmingham's busiest thoroughfares. Pulling up in front of the establishment is less than impressive, but when you walk through the door, that all changes. Amore has a magnificent... More

Celebrating a special occasion or just looking for a nice Italian dinner the Amore Restaurant is a great choice. It had been awhile since we visited Amore and it has been expanded and remodeled, a nice transformation. Other reviews mention the dark interior and it does take a while for your eyes to adjust. We did ask for a flashlight... More

We have lived in Alabama, Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Kentucky and Florida. We love Italian food! We have eaten at most of the top Italian restaurants in those states which covers most of the South. I truly believe Amore Ristorante Italiano in Birmingham on Highway 280 is the "Best Italian Restaurant in the South". They recently remodeled and expanded due... More

We have gone to Amore for a number of years and seen it through several changes in restaurant seating and ownership/chefs. This last time was the best yet. Finally, they have hit on enough space and the restaurant doesn't feel crowded anymore. Enjoyed a very nice evening before Father's Day. Food was terrific. Always recommend the meatballs whether as an... More
