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.

A great mom and pop restaurant and ambiance of the old traditional Italian restaurants. WHite linen tablecloths with very friendly staff. The food was amazing. Everyone in our party raved about their meals from the appetizer to dessert. We will definitely be back.

We had dinner at L'amore on 4/14/18. We wanted to eat outside as the weather was quite nice (we were able to walk to the restaurant). The owner greeted us and we were seated on the patio where we had a view of the mountains from our table. The owner also recommended a nice bottle of cabernet, which went well with our dinner. We shared the sauteed calamari in a red sauce appetizer . Very good and a large portion, part of which we took home. For my entree I had the halibut picatta special, which was wonderful, cooked perfectly. My companion had the angel hair pasta with pomodoro sauce. The sauce was quite thick and had large chunks of tomatoes in it; probably would not order this again as it just seemed sort of thrown together. We have eaten here many times and the pasta dishes are usually very well made. I had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It was very dense and a good finale to our meal.

It was our 34th anniversary and we had been to Amore once before and decided to try it again...it was a beautiful evening and we were seated outside at a special little table all by itself at the end of the patio. It was private and totally enjoyable! We have never had better service at any restaurant in the Phoenix area! We were greeted warmly by a lovely lady and shown to our special little table. Our waiter was wonderful and very knowledgeable and even the staff person filling our water was there as soon as the water looked a bit low. Also, the owner visited us to make sure we had ordered and then again to make sure our dinner was exactly what we wanted. This is a special place that definitely cares that you have the very best dining experience as possible. The food was fantastic and our dinner was so enjoyable and memorable. Thank you Amore for making our anniversary a special evening! I would recommend to anyone wanting a wonderful dining experience!

Wonderful service with attentive server. Food served in a timely manner but not rushed. Owner stopped by table several times. Dishes ordered were bruschetta, calamari, carpaccio, spaghetti, gnocchi, eggplant parm and sea bass. All were prepared well. Love this place. Most important the bar makes a perfect vodka martini. Shouldn't be a big deal, but it is.

Our first visit to this great restaurant and it was worth it!!!
Food was great, waiter was polite yet professional. Ambiance was fantastic and manager was attentive to our needs and what was ordered.
It will most certainly be a place we frequent regularly.

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!

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 !!
