Everything is great. Be sure to try the NC Grouper, served only on Fridays. Family owned and operated. Rustic setting with no cell phones on.

“Only the best NY style pizza in the universe”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Really. Mighty fine salads, too. Amore's nearly hides off the hwy between Cashiers and Brevard, but it's worth seeking out. Their pizzas are well crafted on thin, flavorful dough that is both crisp and tender - not an easy trick. Fresh is the byword here; their pesto is divine. Our favorite is their special: garlic parmesan cream, sun dried tomatoes, divine pesto. Service can be awfully slow at times; It's a limited menu and evening meals offer the same lunch menu plus 2 or 3 entrees of the chef's choice. We've tried several salads, pizza, chicken and dumplings, and talapia with scallops, shrimp with lobster sauce; all were great. Freshly made soft rolls accompany. But again I have to whine a little about evening entrees arriving barely warm. When hot food goes on cold plates that sit in the service window....that keeps Amore's from being perfect. Lunch is always a good bet. Highly recommended.

“Great stop for Lunch”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Wonderful sandwiches and pizza here due to tasty bread baked on site; service is a little on the slow side when they are busy. Deli meats were also quite good, and pasta salad appeared to also be made fresh on site with tasty results! Carrot Cake was top notch as well. This was a very good dining experience.

“Great dinner at a small, casual cafe.”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

A tiny cafe with a small menu - mostly pizzas and subs - but with 2 daily specials. My wife and I each had the excellent baked trout with rice and okra. Delicious. Be aware that they do not serve wine or beer, but they have wine glasses and you can bring your own or pick up a bottle at the adjacent Toxaway Wine and Cheese ( open until 7 PM.)

We returned two days later for lunch with a large party of children and grandchildren and the service was slow, but the subs and pizzas were very good.

“A good place for lunch”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

It was a very busy time of the year so you must be willing to wait...it does not have many tables and it can get crowded so we sat outside. Yes even in the middle of the summer you can sit out as it is located in the mountains. Not much scenery as it is just off the road but the food is good and they waitress took good care of us. Try the desserts and they are also tasty.
