The booths were widely separated, which made us feel comfortable. The service was excellent as was the food. Servers were wearing masks and informed us that all the staff were vaccinated.

Excellent dinner. Food is always good, but this night was REALLY good. Not sure if there was a change to the calamari, but it was better than ever, so tender. We had two orders of calamari, the chorizo stuffed chicken, two veal marsala, chicken gorgonzola and the Poseidon pasta. Highly recommend them all. Meals come with Caesar or green salad served with garlic toast. We each had an alcoholic beverage and it worked out to about $50/person. Thank you for such a great night.

We decided after our last visit to scratch this place from our list. After dining there last night, sad to say, nothing has changed for the better.
Mediterranean pizza with chicken was so dry it was nearly inedible. My wife’s chicken parm was below average for this town. Good service, ambiance, but not good value for money.

Our waitress was amazing. She was engaging with our teenage kids and made our dinner very entertaining. You could tell she enjoyed her job. The food was great and exactly what we were looking for after a long week. Highly recommend!

Well spaced and with excellent service as usual. They make the best wood-fired Margherita Pizza in the whole region. I would highly recommend any of their pizzas. Their other dishes are also very good. One of my favourite restaurants.

The Hot and Sweet Pizza was delicious!! One of the best pizza that I have ever had! The restaurant was a little cold when we first arrived, but warmed up by the end of our lunch. Great service too! Thank you for an overall amazing experience!

Wonderful lunch with good friends.
Check in was a bit slow, but arrived early enough that it wasn’t too much of a problem.
Love how the tables and booths are spaced out, allowing service staff and patrons ample room.
Had the quiche and salad…delicious!

Great menu choices and portion sizes.
Lighting level was lowered too late in the evening, it felt like a diner until then.
Server was knowledgeable and attentive but we never felt rushed.
Overall good value for the money and a great find for us.

Cafe Amore serves great food and the service is very good. On our recent visit Nov. 6th for diner we found it to be very cold in the restaurant, My wife and daughter left their jacks on. The cold air was blowing right up the isle behind us. Instead of closing the outside door they left it wide open and it wasn't a warm day. Of course when you're working you may not feel the cold but when seated its different. I am sorry but you blew it for us yesterday Cafe Amore.
