“20 years and its better than ever”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We started eating at Amore when it opened in Totowa on unon blvd. The food was and still is out of this world. Everything is absolutely delicious. My favorite is the veal chop any way Jerry makes it, while my wife loves many different salads and the veal saltimbocca. . Over the years we brought many of our friends here to eat, who brought their friends, who etc.. NO ONE was ever disappointed. And they are still going to Amore. Sometimes the service can be a little slow, but that's a good thing because they are busy and you need room for dessert.
Thank You Jerry & Pina for many great meals and many more.

“Not worth the money!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

After a bad first experience, we decided to try again, a big mistake .Walking in the door we were confronted with the most offensive odor. We stood for a minute or two and noticed that there was an air freshener attached to the wall. Not a good sign in an entrance way! My husband commented that it smelled exactly like an urinal! Upon being shown a table, in the middle of a near empty room, we requested a table on the wall. After a not so "under the breath" FINE, we did get a table on the wall. Right next to the leaking window and apparently on top of the music from the bar downstairs! The thumping from the music was a little more than annoying. We brought a friend that had never been there before,( we really wanting another opinion) when placing her order she asked if there was a choice of pasta or potato..The reaction from the waiter was just short of being rude,,my husband was less than pleased with his meal and upon telling the waiter, simply got a shrug of the shoulders. I ordered chicken francese which was dry with way too much lemon, the mashed potato appeared to be doctored instant, then scooped onto the plate with an ice cream scoop, the mixed vegetables very unevenly cooked!! Don't think we are going to waste our money on a third trip!

“Fantastic experiences at Amore”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The food is always made fresh to order and will entice your palette. The owners are very sweet and accommodating for small parties and large parties . I loved them when they were located in Totowa but their new place is perfect to accommodate more people. Jose is a great great head waiter.

Go and enjoy! Mangia!

“Shower Held at Amore Cucina”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We recently held a shower at Amore Cucina. The service was terrible- guests had to ask for soda and water several times before it was placed on the tables. We were promised the whole room but were then seated in half the room and a room divider was pulled across to make the whole area claustrophobic. Promises were made but not delivered and when I went personally to complain to the owners, the staff said they were "at a meeting." The food was very good but the service and the false representation ruined the entire affair. Very disappointed and I will never return there nor recommend having an event there to anyone.
