This is Cafe L' Amore 2.0! Much nicer atmosphere with a larger dining room, new decor and more comfortable seating. The food is sensational. A "farm to table" freshness and flavor. I'm not a desserts person, but you have to try the homemade cannolli. We...More

This is a return visit. Enjoyed our dinner at Cafe L'Amore. We chose Melanzane (eggplant) alla Parmigiana, thin Fettuccine alle Vongole (fresh clams), and a fish of the day. Friendly, attentive service. Lots of families dining out on this early Saturday evening, easily accommodated by...More

When they have Chilean sea bass on the menu it is divine. My son opts for the steak and the Caesar salad is tasty. The only bad thing here is the parking. Someone has to take your car because there are so few spaces.

Great BYOB restaurant — don’t mistake it for just a pizzeria! Everyone enjoyed their pasta dish, but the two who ordered the lamb shank could not stop raving about it. We arrived before 5pm and parked ourselves not knowing it was valet. There was no...More

Invited here with a group for a luncheon, so we confined ourselves to the pizza menu – and no one was disappointed – with several delicious varieties passed around! Looking at their menu, I don’t doubt the reviews from more regular patrons – there were...More

Love coming back here for dinner! Pizza is spot on and the fried calamari Is my favorite. Mike the owner is such a great guy! Very hospitable! Oh and the home made Wood burning oven bread is amazing! Must visit and try for yourself!

Good homestyle Italian food priced reasonably, especially given that the portions are fairly large. Service is attentive. Ambience is fine (a small restaurant in a local strip mall). Parking can be tricky if busy as they share a lot with other businesses and some slots...More
