To start off....love the fact that they have free parking. Service was amazing and the food was delicious. It was clean, comfortable, quick and affordable ....the hostess really appreciates the fact I used open table and made reservation because it helps them determine how much food they will need for the night. I just love this place and can't wait to come back. More

Another excellent supper (pizzas and salads) at Amore. We dined early so we could come home to watch the Olympics and we sat in the pergola area on the first floor (which is one of two beautiful areas Amore makes available for private events.) Amore's wine list features Italian wines and we enjoyed a delicious Bardolino with our dinner; we had never had this wine before and Amore's list allows trying a variety of wines at very reasonable prices. We had a new server this evening who, consistent with every dining experience we've had at Amore, was welcoming, knowledgeable about the menu, efficient and gracious. It was a lovely and affordable mid-week dinner out and we were home in plenty of time for the Olympics! More

We were greeted as always like treasured diners and appreciated the friendly and warm welcome from Tedd. Our dinner special of grilled snapper was delicious...as was our appetizer of plump and tasty east coast oysters and melt in your mouth biscuits. We couldn't resist the flour less chocolate cake with crunchy chocolate chip ice cream for dessert. It is always a pleasure to dine at The Revelry. More
