“An unacceptable disaster!”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

We went two times at Amore Mio this year. The first time was so and so. The horiatiki (the so-called "greek salad') was really untasty with some olives decorating the plate. Two of us ordered spaghetti "all'arrabiata" the sauce of which is made with olive oil, garlic and hot pepper. They still are waiting for the effect of the hot peppers...We gave a second chance to Amore Mio to retrieve a bit of our consideration. This time was a real disaster. As a starter, we ordered bruschette ( a toasted slice of bread with olive oil and garlic) which should have been coverd with olive paste. We had bruschette with olives cut into thin slices...This was only a beginning. Then we ordered a "chef salad". What a surprise when we found four olive stones hidden in the salad leaves. We are still wondering whether these stones transited through the mouth of someone else. Was that a speciality of the chef? On this occasion and for the second time, we ordered spaghetti "all'arrabiata" and once again we are still waiting (two weeks after our visit to Amore Mio) the effect of the hot peppers. And now, last but not least, because it is emblematic of a lack of correction and consideration towards the customer, we will shortly describe what happened with the fusilli "pratinfiore" the sauce of which, according to the menu, was supposed to contain asparagus. To our surprise, the latter was substituted with...broccoli. In conclusion, we would like the staff of Amore Mio to change its way of thinking and to give up with the idea that customers are only good to be spoiled. The dishes which are presented in the plates must stick to what is described in the menu and if ingredients are missing it is imperative to omit the corresponding dishes from the menu.

“Average food, lousy service”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

We have been visiting this italian restaurant for many years, each year with new staff. The food is a good alternative to greek food, but most of the waiters have no knowledge about service. One waiter told us he could not recommend any wine because he did not like wine!!? Their own house-wine is of low quality, ask for bottled wine. The pasta dishes are mostly good, as well as their pizzas.
