  • New favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant

    Being relatively new to Pelican Bay, we are still exploring and trying new places. But our first time at Amore was good enough that we may stop searching and become regulars. While the restaurant is an unpretentious shopping plaza storefront, it had a warm and charming feel inside--there's more that can be done here but it didn't take away from the experience. Our highly professional waiter, Darko, shared the evening's impressive long list of specials without missing a beat, and made an excellent wine recommendation that satisfied what I was looking for at less than I was prepared to pay. He was highly attentive without intruding. The burrata was as good as any we have had elsewhere. Spinach gnocchi with Bolognese was phenomenal, and our entrees were superb. I had Dover sole which equalled the best I have had in NYC and other much higher end restaurants. My wife ordered seafood fra diavolo, with very fresh lobster and other seafood and the perfect amount of spice in the pomodoro sauce. Salted caramel gelato was a great finish (and we should have stopped there but our waiter insisted on bringing us complimentary after dinner drinks and we couldn't refuse!) While we have enjoyed many other excellent Italian restaurants in the 5th and 3rd neighborhoods of Naples, Amore was at least equal to or better in quality, a much better value, and closer to our home in North Naples/Pelican Bay. On the way out, we met Stephano, the owner, who was as gracious, charming and welcoming as he could possibly have been. He made us feel like regulars after our first experience there and we plan on playing the part again whenever we are in town.

    While the service was good and the meals above average (one pasta dish very dry), the place looked and felt old/tired. The noise level made it easy to have a noal conversation. Based on the above comments, I can't recommend this one.

    Amore serves exceptionally good food. I especially like their veal offerings which are much better than in most Italian restaurants. The fish dishes are also very good. Service is great. All the meals were brought out at the same time so no one has to wait. The waiters are professional and friendly. My favorite restaurant in Naples.

    We return to Amore every time we are in Naples. We find it to be the top Italian restaurant in the city and there are many choices. A special thanks to Charlie, our server, for another excellent evening. And thanks to the owner Stefano, for providing yet another wonderful evening of wine choices for us all to enjoy. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our meals, and my father was blown away by the table-side-prepared Branzino! My paillard style veal chop was outstanding! We look forward to returning many times in the future!

    We have dined at Amore on several occasions. All of them very good. However, this evening was one of the best. Mont was our waiter and was incredible. His presentation of the specials was something to hear. One of my guests had the whole Branzino that was prepared table side. Plenty of fish for two. I had the veal and it was very tender. Two other guests had different pasta's and said they were very good. Looking forward to returning.

    This restaurant continues to be my favorite Italian restaurant in Naples. The service is outstanding, Stephano, the owner, is the best proprietor I have ever encountered, and the food is outstanding. Also, if you don't see it on the menu, they will do their best to create it for you ! For the people that rate this restaurant poorly, they must not like great Italian food !

    This is a place we frequent because of the food quality. The added pleasure of meeting the proprietor and or the family upon arrival each night with the expected personal service touch is a real plus. Each dish is prepped individually so anything can be adjusted to your individual tastes, just ask! Highly recommended by this "fussy" eater.

    Amore is a very reliable, good place for dinner. The evening starts with some terrific waiters who clearly enjoy the food and the role they play. The menu is excellent ,but wait to hear the specials -they are typically excellent selections. Not yet sure you see or hear something to excite you - well just ask and it will be made for you. The portions are the correct size and of course they are delicious. The fish and pasta are especially note worthy. We believe Amore is the best Italian spot in our part of Naples Ciao

    I have walked by this restaurant many times as I am always in Publix, Walgreens, etc. and never gave it a second thought. My husband suggested we try it last Monday night and am I glad! We were warmly welcomed and promptly seated. Our waiter was very attentive. The oil mixed with cheese for dipping was yummy! We began with a great bottle of wine. We were never rushed, and ordered minestrone soup and tomato burrata salad for apps. Delicious! My husband ordered the lamb chops for dinner and said they were great. I enjoyed the veal chop Parmesan but it was so large I had to take the rest home. We loved it and will return.

    Our dining experience at Amore was fantastic. There were three people in our party and each dish that was ordered was exquisitely prepared. We were especially delighted by the eggplant appetizer. Our entrees, Branzini, lamb chops, and veal with mushrooms, were each some of the best preparations we have had. The sauces on each dish were outstanding and the quality of the meat and fish was exceptional. Tucked in a strip mall off of Rt. 41, this restaurant was a find that we will be dining at again and recommending to our friends.
