The food was delicious but the portion of linguine was very skimpy. The clams were fresh and plentiful. More clams than linguine. The bread was delicious .
Alway excellent! Linguine with clams is a form of perfection. Wait staff attentive without hovering. Our go to Italian place!
Always great food! Engaged owners! Love this place! Favorite restaurant!
Our first time there but not the last! Our 44th anniversary was made very memorable at L"Amore. Thanks!
Staff very knowledgeable. Made us feel welcome.we did have some returning guests in our party so they made us feel extra special. Food & wine excellent
Every time my wife and I visit this place, we love it just that much more…
Had another wonderful dinner at L'Amore. The service was great & the food was delicious. The owner is so gracious and attentive to all the patrons of the restaurant. Can't wait to go back.
We have been here several times and always enjoyed our experience. This time, however, was not as good. My wife enjoyed her Chicken Picotta, but my ziti was very bland. Also, we were asked to move tables which was okay with us. However, no one said thank you and the owners/managers walked by several times and never stopped to see how we were doing. We will give it another try.
My boyfriend and I went there for anniversary and it was wonderful! The food was great and the service was amazing, our water glass never got more than half way empty and someone was refilling it. The staff was very friendly. Even though it was a little out of our price range, for a special occasion it was most definitely worth it!
Awesome restaurant with great food
Personalized service, fresh, delicious, authentic Italian food. Great atmosphere. We will return time and again. A must try!
L'Amore is one of the best finds in Phoenix. A great neighborhood feel with owners on-site and talking to every table but also with world class food and specials to die for. We have used the place for business, special occasions, romantic, and family gatherings.
Went here on a Google whim and loved it. Amazing food and Kim/Greg we're so sweet. Exceeded expectations and will be back for sure!
Excellent Service, great food, Business dinner with 11 people and I heard complements thought the meal. Wait Staff was excellent.
Seated on patio as we’d requested.
Greeted by owner- much appreciated.
Waiter was Sal, who could not have been better!
We’ll definitely be back!
Needed something for multiple dietary preferences- fast service, very friendly, pasta was fresh and perfect, the fish was also done nicely. Would return if I were back in Phoenix!
My companion and I had dinner at L'Amore on 3/3/2018. We enjoy this restaurant as it is close to our home. The owner always makes a point to personally greet us and treats us like one of the family. Our server recommended a very good bottle of wine from 3 of the Blackboard Specials that evening. We had the mussels marinara as our appetizer. Lots of mussels in a nice garlic tomato sauce, great for dipping. For my entree I had cioppino, one of that night's specials. The portion was large and I took a part of it home for lunch the next day. My companion had linguni and clams with white sauce. Again, a large portion with lots of clams. I had flour-less chocolate cake for dessert, very dense and a bit too sweet. Overall, the food here is very well made with ample portions. Service is friendly, wine list is a bit short but with lots of options and at good prices. Great neighborhood dining !!
Veal was excellent. Waitress could have been a little more discrete (interrupted conversations several times). Suggest adding an Italian Moscato to the wine list
This is a neighborhood gem of a restaurant. We have been here twice, and it was packed both times. I would suggest you arrive 5 mins early before your reservation time. We arrived at 6:55 pm, and by 7 pm, five more couples arrived.
The prices are very reasonable, and the place has a homey touch. The bar area (almost half the restaurant) is almost too noisy for conversation — especially with their singer/organist. (Not to my taste.) the dining room is much better. The owner is always around to make sure you have a good experience.
Best Italian near Biltmore
Food was great!! Nice sized portions, flavorful specials, many choices.
I had a reservation for 3 people at 830 and had to change it to around nine. we drove 30 minutes to get told the kitchen was closed . we were never called or notified that the later time would be an issue.
Excellent Always. don't believe a few of the complainers on this site. The food, service and the family are terrific.
Our first time and it was fabulous. Very large portions. We will be back.
Wow! Great place for a date night!
VERY attentive service, outstanding food!
This has become our favorite restaurant in the Valley. The food is always delicious and the service is always outstanding. It’s such a lovely restaurant in a great location. Good outdoor dining too!
Oh baby!!! This ones good!! My newfound jewel. Our waiter Larry was fantastic!! Greg the owner was warm and welcoming. The gnocchi tasted like “clouds in your mouth “.
2nd time in a week and it was just as great as the first time. It’s not very often you are welcomed by the owner and see them rushing about with their employees to get tables cleaned and to greet everyone. Fabulous place and can’t wait to go back to Phoenix to have some pomodoro and bruschetta!
Welcome by owner was gracious and genuine. We were first time diners via recommendation of a local friend. Food, service and environment all at top level. The Restuarant look and feel was immediately positive upon entry - got better through dining and service experience. Two thoughts - will return during our stay and recommendation to others comes quite easily.
This restaurant was recommended by a local. We are out-of-towners and we loved the food and the service was excellent. Friendly atmosphere we will be back.
My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at L'Amore as we normally do. She had the sea bass and I had the scampi. Service was fast and efficient.
L'Amore never disappoints. I live in Flagstaff but any excuse I have to go down to the valley has to include a dinner at L'Amore. My favorite restaurant in ARIZONA. Food is exquisite, wine choices are excellent, staff make you feel like a VIP. Doesn't get any better than this.
Here in Phoenix for a week and we will be back! Was so busy but they gave us a drink so we relaxed outside while waiting for our table. Staff was amazing and the food was probably the best Italian any of us have ate. Personal attention was
Given by all staff members are you really felt a bit special. Definitely the best Italian restaurant I’ve ever been to, highly recommend!!!
Nope Nope Nope. Ambience was great, service was great. Food was sorely lacking. You don't drench veal salitmbuca in gravy. Any Italian that endorses this place hasn't ever eaten food in Italy. And for those prices?! Not a chance. Olive Garden is a better choice at this point.
Where to start high(low)lights ? Requested patio, but seated on top of a large table in noisy room. Waiter, the cheese goes on the food, not my lap and the wine goes in the glass, not on the tablecloth. Oh, and speaking in a complete sentence might show some personality. Food options were limited Italian and food was average and overpriced for what it was. Wine list slim and priced on the high side. Owner made nasty comment to me when I questioned why patio request couldn't be honored, yet half the patio was empty. Mostly large loud tables in the room. One on top of ours held a long conversation when they arrived, not at the table, but standing right behind us in the less than a foot space between our table and theirs. If you are honored with kindness from the owners by being one of their senior regulars, then this might be worth a second trip, but not for me.
We came here on our family vacation. The service was really really slow. The sauce tasted like it was out of a jar. Wouldn’t come back.
Although we live relatively close and have driven-by about 1,000 times, this was our first visit to L’Amore. We were greeted by the owner, Kim. Both she and her husband were attentive to all guests: regulars were clearly cherished but we were definitely not overlooked as first time guests.
The food (grilled salmon and grouper piccata) was very good. The service from our server, Debbie, and myriad bussers was attentive but not excessive. We shall return!
L’Amore has been serving excellent meals in a fun environment for a long time. We always look forward to either a lunch or dinner when we are in Phoenix. The pasta is outstanding!
Great food, service and atmosphere
