There are not many locally owned restaurants in town anymore. This is the best Italian food with best service. Beautiful new addition. Do not miss this place. -Dr Andy Sokol

Sorry for the delay in response. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy the option to purchase more wine. I do not think name calling is necessary. He truly loves the knowledge he holds of wine and does not wish any customer to leave without purchasing more, if they so desire. I am glad you loved the food!... More

Amore is our go to restaurant for a wonderful dining experience. While living off 280 we ate there frequently. Now, living in Hoover, we don't get there as often. When we do, it is always enjoyable.

My wife and I went out Friday night with another couple to enjoy a Valentine's dinner prior to the big day when you can't get a seat anywhere. We were seated shortly after our 7:30 reservation and everybody was quite pleasant. My wife had a glass of wine along with my friends wife and we place our order for one... More

Unassuming from the outside, Amore is a jewel on the inside! I think it's the best Italian in town! Professional but not snobby service, extensive wine list, classic Italian fare & lots of seafood choices. My linguine was excellent & my husband enjoyed the Marsala. Sautéed spinach, bruschetta & salads were also very good. Totally recommend.

Service is prompt and friendly. the waitstaff experienced and knowledgeable. Food is simply delicious! The meatball appetizer is not to be missed!

Craving some Eggplant, walked in here and sat at the dimly lit bar. I ordered the Eggplant which was supposed to come with bread and salad. Got the Caesar, never got the bread. Eggplant was very good, a bit too salty. When I got the check I saw $5 for the Caesar, was told that was a 'premium' side. Not... More

Amore might not look like much from the outside but the atmosphere inside is great and they have a large selection of dishes you won't find at the typical Italian places around town. It can get pricey but well worth it.
