Grwat meal which everyone loved, and the service was fantastic. Slight downside was the overly energetic party of six next to us that continually spoke louder each bite.

As a frequent customer at Amore, this is the first time I have ever been disappointed in the food. The eggplant parm was way overbaked, so hard it was impossible to cut part of it with a fork. One other customer with me had the eggplant too and hers was ok.

Wegmans ‘knows food’ but this was a whole new level. Food was as good as any upper tier restaurant, loved the layout of the restaurant and the service was great! You won’t be disappointed

The food was very good, excellent service, the restaurant was a tad dark to read the menu, fortunately, I had a penlight with me (I'm old and my eyebones ain't what they used to was) Other than that food was wonderful from bread & olive oil to the desert.

Lunch was perfect; our daughter gave us a gift card for our anniversary and I mentioned that to our waitress and she brought us a complementary dessert when we finished our meal. We went back today to use the rest of our gift card and then I went to Wegmans and purchased one for my daughter. Will give it
to her for Christmas.

When booking the table it was asked if it was a special occasion i said yes it was our 44 anniversary I’m not sure why because nothing was mentioned to us while at the restaurant. The service was excellent ,food was very good my wife had the clams and I had the sampler and we both had a glass of wine with the dinner, $$ is fair for the menu prices but would definitely go again.

Steven's service was attentive and professional. He was polite and helpful and gave great suggestions when we were having a tough time deciding what to get. It's a real team effort there and everyone who came by the table made our experience seem both special and yet right at home. The housemade pasta is amazing! Just like Grandma used to make. The wine list complements the menu perfectly and we were very pleased to find one of our favorites from the Antinori family on the list. Even though we decided to splurge with 4 courses we will be back again to try one of the daily specials and the mouthwatering pizzas. Truly something for everyone here!

Food was excellent and well presented. As long as the meal was of good quality and carefully/expertly prepared (complements to the Italian chief and crew) price is no issue.

I dined at Amore on a Wednesday night and had the special, casarecce pasta with pancetta and a blush sauce, which was delicious. My server, Hillary, and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

I absolutely loved yet another experience at Amore! I had outstanding service and enjoyed the friendly servers, all who were very welcoming and warm, and enjoyed the food. Their Scallop & Risotto special was out of this world and I always love their assortment of gelatos and sorbets. 11/10 Recommend.

Should have looked at the menu first. Most items contained pork or prosciutto. Almost no options without. Ended up ordering a plain pizza which was ok, not what I wanted and nothing special. My husband and I both felt that there was nothing compelling us to return. The food was ok, not terrible but there are a lot of other Italian restaurants that are much better. We’ve been wanting to try Amore for a long time.

Went to dinner before a show at the Auditorium. Had the tasting menu and wine parings. Food was great and wines paired very well! Our server knew we were Oman time crunch and helped get us served quickly, without seeming too rushed. Will definitely go back again!

It was our first time there but won’t be our last. The food was amazing and the service was great. There’s nothing better than homemade pasta, with an excellent bottle of wine to go with it. Can’t wait to go back!

Our reservations were for 6:00 but our granddaughter's recital got out early at 4:30. I called to see if we could get in Amore early and they were very accommodating. Good food, service, and not noisy!😀💜

Amore is a fun place to go. After all, it is attached to a grocery store. Entrees have a special flair with tastes not found in other restaurants. Prices are on the high side as you would expect from Wegmans.

The seating is VERY cramped. Waiters and waitresses often pass by you sideways to get through. Also, the lighting is very poor. Very poor. Poor to the point that 3 couples near us had to use the flashlight on their phones just to read the menu. My wife was at that point as well but I pleaded with her not to.

I would recommend it because it is a one-off experience, but not if you are claustrophobic. Also, with portion sizes running counter to prices, folks needn't come too hungry.

I stopped in to the bar for a quick dinner before going to a meeting. My romagna salad and salmon entree were both delicious. Justin is a great bartender, very knowledgeable about all of Amore’s wines, beers and cocktails. The bar area was busy, but he handled all the customers very smoothly and efficiently.

Decided to grab a bite to eat and we thought about Amoré as we haven’t been in a while.

Our waitress Zoe was pleasant. She knew her specials, and she gave great recommendations on what to order. Our food was accurate and timely. I had the wine pairing dinner, which our waitress recommended-it was a good value and the portions were just right for you to try at least four different entrees from the main menu. My husband had the pizza, which is his favorite! My daughter had the spaghetti which she enjoyed. The tomato pesto that they serve with the bread is out of this world. We will certainly be back. A perk - you can walk out and pick up a few grocery items if you needed to!

We arrived 35 mins early to a 8pm reservation, told host #1 we had arrived and then went to sit at the bar. 15 minutes after our reservation was to be for, we asked host #2 how much longer the wait would be. host #2 told us they didn’t know we had arrived and that our table had been ready for some time. That was super frustrating. Also our entrees took so long to arrive at our table our server had boxed our appetizers for us and bagged them. Service that night was spotty and was left wanting. We’ve been another time before which was amazing. We were hoping for similar service.

Food was delicious as usual. Service was excellent until server apparently forgot 2nd glass of wine. Manager got it immediately. I think our server became distracted by concerns at another table. Otherwise, very enjoyable but I think certainly a better value at lunch.
