Visiting Pizza Amore on a Sunday night was a reminder that we have several real gems of restaurants here in the La Crosse area. Pizza Amore is efficiently elegant in style – it's a small space but the old building's high ceiling and front window structure offers a lot of design / decor potential, which Kate's takes advantage of very well, including a couple of colorful hanging space dividers and a small bar full of big pizzazz. The service was just fine on our trip, catering well to the needs of three children, which can likely be a trick at a gourmet pizza restaurant. The Carnitas Ensalada, although a complicated mixture of greens, sauces, and meat, tasted good at the right spot: the roasted pork. The highlight was the artfully crafted Margherita pizza though. A perfectly done thin crust, ripe tomatoes, cheese, and a drizzled top of basil pesto was a nice example of the traditional recipe.

I had the best pizza of my life there--crispy crust, though not too thin, excellent toppings, just the right amount of sauce and cheese. I would drive hours to eat there again. It is amazing!!!

We went on a Thursday night and it was packed. We called ahead to see if there was a wait. The first time we tried to go here there was a 30 minute wait and we opted for another place. It's a small place, so be prepared to wait a little to be seated, especially on weekends. However, the experience is worth the wait. They have a nice wine and beer menu. I was impressed by the number of options for pizza, especially with the specialty toppings like spinach pudding and andoiulle sausage. The specialty pizzas are on the pricey side at first glance, but they have tons of toppings, so it ends up being a nice portion, even at the individual size. The service was friendly and our food got to us in a reasonable amount of time. The pizza was delicious. We opted for the spinach surprise and it was excellent! Again, it's a pretty small place, so it's pretty loud as well. Overall, it was a nice experience and well-priced for a slightly higher-end dinner.

You don't really realize that you are actually in La Crosse WI when you step into Pizza Amore. The decor would not look out of place in Seattle or Boston. It is fun, energetic, and romantic. The pizza and other main dishes are quite unique and delicious. It is a great place for date night!

We were on a Fall Road Trip staying at a suite hotel; not wanting to eat out every night, we felt like an 'at home' night with pizza and our books. This take out pizza was very good; not the best ever but quite fine. Lots of choices.
