Description: 17/05/13Customer NameAlma & Bruno Herzog thought it was about time to drop a line of recognition after all the wonderfull meals we had with you. The staff of Amore (and especially the chef/owner Marin) are truely devoted to their job. It is a rare thing that you will never ever get disapointed when you visit a certain restaurant regulary. Amore is one of those rare ones. Whatever we had was exellent and could be seved in the best places anywhere. One of the dishes I always fall in love again is the Linguini with the best seafood you could expect in a pasta dish. The squids are absolutly divine tender (rare to find anywhere else), the mussles and shrimps of the higest quality

We have eaten here twice and each time we were very satisfied with our meals. We love the fresh seafood and pasta they have to offer. So far we have tried the grilled fish (sword, tuna and salmon) on greens. Pasta with mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari. Penne pasta in a fresh tomato sauce. Grilled vegetables. A type of seafood stew with all kinds of shelled fish. The house wine and champagne. Cheesecake and tiramisu for dessert, finishing up with Cappuccino. Parking is at the town square nearby within walking distance. The servers were always very hospitable and informative. This restaurant has some of the most scenic views. It overlooks a waterway and bridge. From inside one can see the water with the swans swimming by.

Fish course was tasty although served with bland salad. Husband's filet steak was a nice cut of meat in a cream and mushroom sauce served with veg and garnishes from the eighties. Needs to be more rustic and authentic Italian. Sent mussels back as tasted funny but all credit to them they did not charge. Very over priced.

Met some old school friends here for lunch. Very relaxed and good service. Friendly staff. The bruschetta starter was delicious, followed by pasta ragu - like a rich beefy stew - washed down with a very pleasant Sauvignon.

This was very disappointing an expensive menu but very disappointing food. My liver was rubbery and overdone, the creme brûlée was hardly visible in the ramekin and served with no finesse, just looked like custard in a ramekin on a side plate. Remember to order vegetables as the main course has non and the waitress won't tell you. It does indicate this on the menu as vegetables have a separate price, but not clear that these aren't just extra veg.
