So sad that this restaurant has taken such a downturn. Terrible, rude server and missing order with no recognition by management of what they clearly realized was a disaster. Won’t go back.

We've been to Amore many times without any issues and have had good food and service. This was not to be however on this visit. I made reservations via OpenTable and specifically asked to be seated as FAR away from the kitchen area as possible. When the hostess seated us at the CLOSEST table to the kitchen area, I complained but she said there were no other tables available. I counted 6 tables on the other side of the restaurant that were empty, and all she said was "Sorry." Our waiter, who was new, either didn't know what he was doing or was in over his head. E.g., we reminded him twice for bread; I had steak and he didn't bring me a steak knife until I reminded him that I needed one, etc.

Had this been our first visit, I'm not sure we'd go back. But we've been there many, many times and this is the first "abnormal" experience that we've had.

We are regular diners at Amore and find it has been wonderful for both every day and special event dining for the two of us as well as for dining with friends, family, and business companions. The menu offers something for everyone, with an Italian inspiration; the wine list also showcases (but not exclusively) a wonderful variety of Italian wines, and the price point is very reasonable. The recent addition of a full bar makes Amore more attractive to those for whom dining out is not complete without a cocktail (a few of our friends fall into this category!)
Against this background, no big surprise that Amore was our venue of choice for a recent family dinner to celebrate the visit of a family member from the UK. It was a wonderful, memorable success.
(Manager) Yvonne went above and beyond to ensure our dinner would be great. She found a quiet, lovely table for our group, and provided Justin as our server. He is so knowledgeable about the entire menu and the wines and spirits; he is efficient, hospitable, conveys the sense that whatever a guest has requested is both reasonable and do-able. And he is excellent with child diners. A rare combination!
The food, wine and beer and spirits were great. Each guest was very, very happy with their selections.
Our dinner at Amore was simply wonderful and truly memorable. We owe this to Yvonne, Justin, and the amazing kitchen staff. We could not have asked for more.

So much improved since it's early days, and is now one of the best places in town in my opinion. Not a regular but the last 3 times I have been there since the new Chef came aboard have been outstanding. Typically not difficult to get a table which can be unusual for places of such high quality. I would be comfortable recommending Amore to anyone interested in quality dining and service, and will definitely be back myself. Cheers!

We eat at Amore regularly (ie, weekly) and love the food, the service and the wine list. We like that the kitchen is open but not obtrusive. The menu has gotten increasingly seasonal and that’s interesting and refreshing. The kitchen staff are committed to serving authentic Italian cuisine, at the same time accommodating customer requests with genuine courtesy and aplomb. The wine list (no surprise, it’s predominantly Italian) is both reasonable and food friendly. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful about the wine list, in a good way. Yvonne and Ali do a great understated and friendly job of managing things at Amore.
We often invite friends to join us at Amore and friends we have introduced to Amore specifically ask to dine there.

My experience at Amore was incredible! For dinner I ate the chicken. It was cooked to perfection, with a crispy skin and a juicy and flavorful meat due to being cooked in the 700’ pizza oven. This was a very special preparation and I’m very glad my server told me about it. The wine menu is laid out in a way making it easy to read and to find a great wine at a reasonable price. I’m excited to come back on Thursday for half price bottle night. I am also ready to try the pizzas which are on sale during happy hour every day from 4-7, what a steal!

People shouldn't be put off because it's part of a supermarket, keep in mind that it's Wegman's. Although connected, it's a first rate restaurant. Once inside, you quickly forget Wegman's is just steps away. We eat there frequently and the food is consistently outstanding.

We have been regulars here for about a year. The food is always fresh and well prepared. Service is helpful, timely and suggestions always honest. The ambiance is not high end, but comfortable. And we get to shop for groceries afterwards if we need any. Oh, specials of the day off menu are a good bet too.

Amore isn't new to me: I visited this restaurant many times and I was always very satisfied: the quality of the food and service are remarkable. Salads, pasta and pizzas are made with fresh ingredients following the true Italian tradition. Among the desserts the Olive Oil Cake is very special!

Food was Outstanding, presentation was very eye appealing and everything tasted even better than it looked. Oysters were fresh, entrees were very delicious. The 3 different desserts ordered were all very good. The gelato was best have ever had in the states. Service was extremely pleasant & perfect attentive. Even got to chat with Head chef & he was just perfect and enjoyable conversation. Can't wait to go back. Enjoyed by all 3 in our party.

We have been there many times, but this time the food was not up to
the Amore standards. The pasta was way overcooked, and left too long
to serve, as the sauce was luke warm. Took 2 and one half hours for dinner.
Not what we expected this time.

This was our first time visiting restaurant and my son was treating me for my birthday. Staff friendly and we were seated right away. Restaurant was loud. Service was poor. Waitress never asked us if we wanted drinks and we had to stop her as she was going by. After we ordered waited over half an hour for food. During that time waitress never came to table. Meals did not come out together and I had to wait another’s 5 minutes for my meal. Issue with getting red pepper - took forever and by the time it finally came I was done eating. Waited more than 10 minutes for waitress to take check. The food was very good but Overall not a great experience.
