Wow! This is the REAL deal!!! Small (30 max diners), intimate, a killer view looking down on the city of Seattle and Puget Sound a few miles away, and out of the way but easy to find. It doesn't get much better. The authentic Italian menu is made fresh,moron scratch, daily. Several special menu items change daily. There were 6... More

A vibrant, cozy, neighborhood cafe with incredible food and a great wine selection. Don't miss it. I'm a wild boar ragu nut and these folks know how to make it right. And the eggplant...oh, the eggplant. Plan ahead, get a reservation and prepare to have some of the best food. When you're done, save some daylight (if you can) to... More

Went with a friend for dinner after checking online for reviews. This place got a lot of great reviews so we decided to try it. My friend was delayed and I was starving so order the anti pasti to munch on. The service was outstanding with our waiter being knowledgeable, friend, and attentive. The appetizer was a wonderful selection of... More

I've been dining at That's Amore since they opened ~10 years ago. We know the owner/head chef and the staff. The food is always great. I've had everything on the menu except the shellfish (family members say all shellfish dishes are to die for) and have never been disappointed. If you're visiting, it's worth the cab/uber to dine here.

Simply the best Italian cuisine Seattle has to offer. I dine here every time I visit Seattle, which is about 3 times a year. The atmosphere is very Seattle, reserve a table by the window so you can enjoy the view. The staff is always friendly, offering witty banter or being totally professional depending on their audience. Start with a... More

This is an absolute neighborhood gem. We found this place after doing a search for Italian restaurants in Seattle. I was intrigued by the high ratings so we had to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The service was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The wine list is very adequate without being overwhelming. The food was fabulous. I... More

Had a spectacular dinner at That's Amore! What a treasure of a restaurant. Lovely location with beautiful views, especially at sunset. My cousin suggested we start with the risotto appetizer which was amazingly delishious. We followed with a Caesar salad that was perfectly dressed, right amout of crutons and a light amount of fresh ground pepper. I had one of... More

We had a table of seven and I could not have been more pleased with the evening. First of all the view is awesome. The Bruschetta had some really great tasting tomatoes and was more than enough for 7 people to try. I was adventuresome and had the Wild Boar Ragu. They must put a lot of red wine in... More

The neighborhood is Mt Baker, the views are of the entire Seattle skyline, and the atmosphere is idyllic. That's Amore does old school Italian food with Pacific NW flair and does it extraordinary well.

Description
When travelling, often the best restuarants are slightly off the beaten path. We've been named "Hidden Gem" by Seattle Magazine, not just for spectacular Italian Food but a gorgeous view of Downtown Seattle. Chef-owned, our casual little place is just 10 minutes from Downtown (just a quick exit from I-90 onto Rainier Ave S -- careful, the exit comes up FAST from downtown). Free Parking and a really cool Solstice Park (with sunset marker stones) just steps North of our building is the Cherry on top! Welcome!
