We look forward to serving you! ***Amore will be closed for several weeks commencing on April 28, 2017 as we enhance our facilities to improve your dining experience!

“Excellent Italian”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Wife and I ate here last night. We were the only customers (low season). We had the stuffed eggplant for an appetizer which was excellent. Shared a mama mia pizza which was also excellent, very thin crust. That was more than enough along with a margarita and the house wine. The owner was very nice and gave us complimentary irish cream after dinner. Highly recommend

“Great Italian Food, lovely Ambience, Friendly Service”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Amore is one of my favorite restaurants. Located on Calle Corona, 1.5 blocks from the Malecon, this is a small restaurant locally owned and operated. The prices are very fair and the value is great. Amore is not air conditioned but then many PV restaurants are not....but the owner will bring out a fan if needed. Most of the time, it is very comfortable as the PV climate is so incredibly great! I eat at Amore once or twice a month....it is one of my favorite small restaurants in PV

“Delicious, fresh, romantic: That's Amore!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

It's no surprise this little gem is ranked #15 of 596 restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Located on a quiet side street close to the Malécon, Amore is a small place big on service, fine food and ambiance. I visited during the day for a late lunch with a friend, but it's easy to see Amore as a wonderful spot for a romantic evening. Our waiter Eduardo, who is also the owner (talk about service!) was polite, efficient and friendly, bringing us a perfectly-timed meal. Beginning with crusty toasted Italian bread and a mouth-watering olive tapenade, we enjoyed a Méxican beer and glass of Italian vino blanco while waiting for our entrees. Delicate linguine cooked to a sublime al dente, served in a creamy clam sauce with at least a dozen fresh clams in the shell - amazing. Filet mignon in a rich brown sauce with champiñónes and roasted papas - cooked to a pleasing medium-rare. We appreciated that the entrées were the right portion: not too much food and definitely priced well. After our meal, we chatted with Eduardo for a moment about Italian food and tourism in Vallarta, before he handed us each a business card. It wasn't until a few days later that I realized he had written "complimentary margarita with dinner" on the back. "Grazie, gentile signore!"
