I have always had a very tasty meal here. The service is good, but it is not a place that will rush you in any way. They have a good selection on the menu, and are quite willing to make small changes to dishes to suit your needs. If you want to go on a Saturday night, make sure you... More

My husband and I joined some friends for supper at Cafe Amore and absolutely loved our meals. My husband started off with the cream of mushroom soup which was very tasty and I had the garden salad, which was typical for a garden salad. This restaurant really shined with the entrees we had. My husband ordered Poseidon Pasta, which included... More

My husband and I joined a group of people that go regularly to this wonderful restaurant. Sunday to Thursday, they serve special 3 course dinners for only $20.00 per person. The menu give you lots of choices for appetizers, entrees and desserts and in good portions. I had the Chicken Souvlaki which was delivered in an interesting way, hanging from... More

We traveled from Burlington to take our grandson out for a good meal and dining experience. We were not disappointed! We were greeted by very friendly host staff as well as by Nadia, who we learned later owns the restaurant with Allan. Our server Madison was equally friendly and helpful. My wife and I had the Crab and asparagus pasta... More

Very pleasant atmosphere, wait staff were very nice and the food was fresh and tasty! We like to lunch here after our visit to the olive oil store next door and make our trek out to St. Kitt's complete.

We had the garlic shrimp and the hot pepper shrimp starter ( hot pepper shrimp a bit over cooked so they changed it, was much better).Then the arrabiata was very good and the steak and mashed potatoes was excellent. If you skip the appetizer you can go and select a home made dessert from the display at the entrance.Always busy... More

Food was okay for our Christmas party. Everyone ordered something different. The veal parmigiana was good. We would recommend this restaurant.

Somehow still popular. I've been three times, forced by family. Each time was awful. The pasta is always overcooked. The sauces are goopy and over-salted, and congeal into a lumpy mess. The salad is OUT OF A BAG and always brown at the edges, with globs of dressing to cover up the brown bits. How does a restaurant consistently serve... More
