L'Amore Restaurant is a family owned and operated neighborhood Italian restaurant located in the heart of Phoenix. We offer fine dining with a family atmosphere. We personally operate the restaurant being there to meet and greet each guest as if they were entering our own home. Here's a secret - we are told we have the best Cioppino in town. Enjoy the formal dining room, the friendly bar with great, live, soft music from our musician Jimmy who plays on Thursday - Saturday night, or sit in our beautiful tree-lined patio over-looking the Phoenix Mountain Preserves. We're happy to serve your every need. If you're on your way home, call us for a take-out dinner, or if you're thinking of a holiday party, set up an appointment to speak to us about our catering.

I went for lunch with a group of five ladies, two of whom regularly go for dinner, but I'd never been there before. The restaurant is beautiful, I was warmly greeted by the owner, we had a lovely big round table, which was perfect. They were accommodating in serving dishes my friends loved from the dinner menu that weren't on the lunch menu. The chicken and spinach soup was delicious to start. It was a test-run for me to see if my husband would like it for lunch since we live far north and can't come for dinner. But now I can't wait to take him to lunch there. Our waiter was extremely patient with the special requests of my very particular friends, and the kitchen delivered! Thank you!

L'Amore is a wonderful restaurant, with lovely patio seating, a great bar area in addition to the dining room. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The staff cannot do enough to make your dining experience perfect. They treat you like a welcome guest, and feed you like you are family! This is my go-to restaurant for lunches with friends, and dinner with anyone!

Our second visit to this lovely restaurant. Service and food, as well as wine choices, were all above average. Michael, our waiter, was new but seemed like a real pro and knew all about the dishes we ordered. Special GF pasta and sauce made me happy and the others all enjoyed their salads and entrees...sea bass, meatballs and choupino. YES, we'll return with other friends.

We had a great dinner. Great service. It was a friendly & pretty little place. White tablecloths which we always love. Owners walked around the entire time & were talking with many people that must be the locals that come often. He visited our table to make sure everything was good. We would recommend it. We were visiting from out of town

This place is awesome. We had a party of 5 and they seated us right away. We each had a different meal and each one was prepared perfectly and tasted delicious. We will be returning to try a different dish again in the near future. Owner came by and checked in before and after the meal. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Some of the best Italian food I've ever had. Our server, I believe his name was Austin, was outstanding. Enjoyed the extra touch of a candle on our tiramisu since we were there to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Will definitely dine there again!

A bit pricey for a weeknight with friends, but the splurge is worth it for special occasions. An overall wonderful experience with outstanding food, service, ambiance. And apparently a lot of folks agree. Even on a weeknight, most of the tables we taken. Even so, the sound level was very low, probably due to good acoustical planning. I'm looking forward to our next time there.

I love this restaurant, and so does my young lady. We were there to celebrate Janet's birthday, and were very pleased. This is not the first time we have been there...it's always great. The staff is attentive, they make us feel like they are glad we're there -- even the owner takes the time to talk to everyone. Food is excellent, and the prices are more than fair. L'Amore will always be one of our go-to restaurants on special occasions, or just because.

The meal was as usual fabulous. The service was as usual impeccable. We sat outside on the patio which once the sun went down was a sheer delight and kept the noise level at a very acceptable rate. Never cared much for outside dining but last Saturday night made a believer out of me.

This is a great neighborhood dining spot! The portions are very generous and there is a nice selection of wines to complement the food. We had a sauteed calamari appetizer along with a seafood salad over grilled romaine lettuce. Our entree was linguini with clams in a maranara sauce. Lots of food and all well prepared. The only downside was the cannoli I had for dessert. The pastry was a bit dry and the filling was a bit blah. I have had their other desserts (tiramisu, flour-less chocolate cake) and they were very good.

Had dinner with 4 friends recently. Service was good but they seemed short handed and a little slow. Food was very good. Red sauce very good. Our reservation was early at 5:30pm. It was initially quiet. By the time we left at 7PM it was so loud that I couldn't speak with the friend across the large round table. Will return but make sure to have an early reservation and only go with 1-3 others.

We met friends at L’Amore for dinner.... the food was fantastic! The wait staff was very attentive and the food arrived direct from the kitchen nice and hot. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana .... delicious.....Not over breaded or greasy.
There is a nice homey vibe... it seems to me that many of the people were frequent patrons of the restaurant.... the staff greeted them like they were long lost family!!!

Just visiting Phoenix and after reading other reviews about L'Amore, decided to try it. The restaurant was packed and lively...a good indicator we had picked the right place. Beautiful evening to sit outside, even tho I was a bit concerned it might be too chilly. I assume it was the owner (from reading other reviews about how the couple who owned the restaurant were on top of everything) who checked by the table twice to make sure the outdoor heater was keeping me warm. The waiter cheerfully adjusted it twice when I was first too chilly, then too hot. The mussels in the garlic wine sauce were amazing! After a basket of garlic bread to soak up that yummy garlic/wine sauce, we could have quit, but our entrees were too tasty to leave any behind. My husband was totally satisfied with his veal and my Cioppino (one of the specials) was outstanding. We always have to try the Tiramisu ...unfortunately it was disappointing. But, hey, we didn't really need to eat the whole the thing anyway.

I would recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. I thought it was a bit pricey. Certainly, no one rushed us, and by the time we left at 8:45, the place was pretty empty. Caters to an older crowd!
