Description: The finest Italian food I've had outside of Italy!(847) 358-5506

Don't let the strip shopping mall location confuse you. This is a fantastic restaurant. Food was served hot, with fresh ingredients and very timely. Service was great, the atmosphere is very warm given it's location in a square box retail strip mall, they've done a nice job separating the eating areas to make you feel you have a private dining area. I had the linguine, shrimp, mussels and clams. The mussels were the best I've had anywhere away from an ocean. My date had a calamari steak which also was delicious. I highly recommend going, wish it were closer to where I live!

I come from a long line of Italians who refuse to eat in an Italian restaurant because what they get at home is so much better, but THIS place changed it all! One of those places you'd miss if you drove by, but the most authentic cooking you'll get this side of the Atlantic. The owner Nick has his wife cooking the meals in the back. If something is not on the menu, just tell them what you want and they'll whip it up and make it delicious. There is nothing commercial about it which makes it even more delicious. My peronal fave is the Penne alla vodka with crushed red pepper (not on the menu) and the breaded zucchini appetizer when zucchini is in season. They grow it in their backyard and it is phenomenal. Highly recommended.

My husband and I love to dine at Amore Mio because I am an adventurous eater, while he prefers classic Italian dishes. I can order the shrimp and crabmeat ravioli with the saffron-tomato-cream sauce while he gets the chicken parmesan, and we can both enjoy equally delicious meals. The classic menu never disappoints, and the creative, inspired dishes on the specials menu are always a treat to enjoy. As for desserts, you can't go wrong with their homemade cannoli or limoncello cake. They are to die for! The service is consistently accomodating and professional, and always extremely friendly. I first stumbled across Amore Mio while grocery shopping in the same strip mall five years ago, and although we've moved to Mount Prospect, the flawless food and fantastic service bring us back at least once a month. We continue to look for better Italian food closer to us, but Amore Mio simply cannot be beat!
