When I learned that there was a change in ownership since the time that I had been there, I decided to give Amore of Wayne another try. I am so glad that I did.

We started with the stuffed artichoke as an appetizer. I am usually disappointed because I grew up in a household where my Mother always made the best stuffed artichokes. Don't tell my Mother, but I finally found artichokes that were exactly like her's. They were full of flavor and extremely tender. I then had a veal chop, country style. The veal was a perfectly prepared, high quality chop that just melted in your mouth. I had a pasta side with a red sauce that is now my local favorite. My friend had the pappardelle which was also perfectly prepared. We finished with the tiramisu. Finally, a restaurant that uses the classic tiramisu recipe! Again, perfectly prepared.

The only thing better than the quality of the food was the professional, friendly service. The host, Freddie, could not do enough for us. The fireplace dining room had a warm, comfortable ambiance. I have found a new favorite Italian restaurant and with the generous spacing of the tables, recommend Amore for a private business lunch or a romantic evening. Enjoy!

On this Wednesday night at 6:00 PM I had the whole dining room to myself for the 1st 15 minutes. Ambiiience very nice. The service was very good; the waiter pleasant. I was wondering why the place was so empty. Was it the food? Absolutely not! I had a great meal. Considering the fact that I was the place was practically empty, it too quite a while for each dish to come to the table. I started with a large bowl of stracciatella soup, followed by orecchiette pasta with two large pieces of braciole. The pasta was good; the braciole super delicious. The piece I took home was even tastier the next day. I've eaten here before; the food is consistently good.

Celebrating our 10th anniversary, my husband and I wound up here unplanned on a Friday evening. No wait but dining room was fairly taken up. We had amazing cocktails, the mozzarella burrata special app, chicken campagna, and filet mignon. Everything was delicious and the service was impeccable. Very friendly and family-like welcome. It was also a place of happy memory for us as we first truly met and got to know one another at the Greenhouse Cafe bar downstairs 12 years ago.

Found was good. Appetizers we had eggplant rollentini and son had fried calamari. I had pasta dish with mushrooms and cream sauce, husband had gnocchi and our son had Bolognese.
