The as posted hours are, that Amore opens at 11:30 AM. Twice now the doors are found locked, even at 11:31. The second time I specifically made an 11:30 reservation in hopes of finding the door unlocked, to no avail. Finding the front door locked and no one to let you in, with the bitter COLD Rochester weather, is NOT very welcoming! So one must walk in the regular main grocery entrance and amble through the store to the back entrance, only to find that locked as well! Twice now! At least it's inside away from the cold there! The secret is to enter through the patio dining area to the right of the back entrance! Walk around and through the main dinning area to get to the front desk, though the help may seem a bit flustered to see you arrive from that direction! After all that, the service is then outstanding, and Amore is really a lovely place to meet at lunch with friends! We'll probably give it another try in a month or two or so, but I guess I'm old fashioned, if you say you're opened, you should be open?! It's just too cold in the winter to stand in front of the door in the bitter cold wind and puzzle out "are they going to open today?", "when will the door get unlocked?", "did I get the time wrong"? If after a third try in the future, we fail again to guess when the doors actually open, Amore will have beat us, and we'll sadly give up, go away and find somewhere else that wants to welcome us in. It seams such a simple courtesy really? Doesn't it? Am I really wrong?

I always enjoy the food at this restaurant, but I have to say that the pizza was not very good. Dough was heavy, not much sauce or cheese, and noy baked very well. I'll be back but I don't think I'll order the pizza again.

Reliably good food and nice atmosphere. Special pasta was less satisfying than usual, but still good.
Service was a bit inept without balancing it with friendliness, but no major complaint.
Overall a very good and fairly affordable meal at a nice place.

Fantastic Spanish octopus cooked to perfection.
Thin crust pizza baked in a brick oven- we ordered the Amore pizza but the sauce was average. The table beside ours ordered mushroom & truffle (in hindsight we should have ordered that instead) and it looks wonderful.

My date had the tasting menu. The baked ziti was creamy and airy, while the moist olive oil cake couldn’t have been a better dessert.

Italian food was not good.
Meatballs were terrible.
No salad with entree.
Breads not fresh and not even Italian.
Way overpriced for the quality of food.
I think Wegmans needs to stay in the grocery
business and get out of the restaurant one.

What a wonderful experience! Connor was an absolute rockstar and managed to make us PERFECT Vesper! Complete with and old school lemon twist beautifully perched on the rim of the glass! Justin was exceptional and gave great service. The food was outstanding, hot and perfectly seasoned. Chef seems to have not lost his touch as everything from the pasta to the pizza was expertly executed. The pizza dough was classic, and wonderful. I cannot sing my praises enough, wonderful job team!

Our appetizers and entrees were quite good and served quickly. Empty dishes were also removed promptly and water glasses filled regularly. My only disappointment was that I did not get to try the Italian Old Fashioned that I ordered as it was never delivered.

My wife and I dine out frequently and have become convinced that the Amore offers some of the best Italian food in Rochester, and at a reasonable price. The head chef, Pasquale, is directly from Italy, and his passion for quality and consistency is obvious each time we dine here.

Whether it’s the lobster risotto or the Zappa de pesce, or the pizza, I know I am getting a great plate that has been cooked to perfection.

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!
