We had a lovely, lowkey New Year's Eve dinner. Our server was great and attentive, answering any questions we had. The entire dinner went very smoothly and food came out well-timed and hot. This restaurant has never disappointed. Thanks for ending the year on such a great note.

Terrible service from the waitress. My partner and I ordered a shared appetizer and two entrees, each with a salad. She brought the salads and then brought our entrees. No appetizer. I mentioned it to her and she brushed it off. After dinner, we ordered a shared cheesecake dessert which took 20 minutes to arrive and it was not the dessert we ordered. She was never apologetic or seemed to care. Very disappointing for a New Year's Eve dining experience.

The service and experience was excellent, at least as good as it can be under COVID restrictions. The pizza was fantastic. The highlight. We ordered the Marguerita Viagra. Agreat sauce and overall as good a pizzas in NYC. The salad was also really good. Good selections of wine. My wife had the chicken Parm (very good) and I had the veal parm. The veal and penne was only ok. I will have to try another entre e next time.

Our server was so kind and thoughtful when explaining different options on the menu. The food was to die for! I got the margarita pizza and he got the veal parmigiana. The tomato sauce was delicious and we will definitely be back!

Crab and shrimp pasta was incredible and good portion size. As was the veal Parmigiano. Calamari starter was cooked well but a little small in terms of portion for the cost. Overall a place I would return.

Fresh ingredients contributed to an amazing meal! Reasonably priced compared to most restaurants…perfect for lunch! Book early to get in as it can be difficult during peak hours.

3 for dinner. We shared a prosciutto pizza as a appetizer. Very tasty.
All meals came with a garden salad. Very light and fresh.
One diner had the stuffed sole and found it very tasty.
One diner had the mushroom stuffed ravioli and like it very much.
One diner had the Poseidon pasta. Nice assortment of seafood. The only negative was that the scallops were over cooked. The dish was tasty.
All in all a good meal.

Restaurant was clean, staff was friendly and the food was excellent. I had one of the pasta and shrimp dishes and my date had the stuffed sole, both were very good. We didn’t wait long for our food and the evening was just right overall.

Having just eaten at Cafe Amore for the first time I was impressed with the ambience and the service. Unfortunately the food wasn’t as highly rated due to the lack of punch we expected from an Italian restaurant. We love Italian food, but this was too bland. Garlic bread was lacking in taste of garlic.

Cafe Amore is a very popular restaurant for good reason. There are classic Italian style pasta dishes as well as several sea food dishes. Combine fine food with very reasonable pricing and you have a situation that draws us back time after time.
