The food is excellent and service very good as well. Our table was in the hallway by the bathroom and kitchen so not the best atmosphere for us. I would suggest asking for the main dining area since this is an expensive but well worth it experience. The bread is amazing and really good wine selection.

Great Italian food. Cozy interior. Friendly, attentive, service. Sinatra & Dean Martin in the background. And now Amore is open on Sunday. What’s not to love?

The staff were very friendly and I felt true hospitality was present. The stereotypical idea that when it comes to Italian, every one is treated like family was the kind of vibe I got from here. Aside from outstanding service, the food surpassed my expectations. I have personally travelled many places and tend to be a fan of Italian food/pastas and I have never had any as excellent as Amore. I had the Penne alla Gorgonzola which was a twist on Fettuccine Alfredo, where the Gorgonzola offered a delightful pungent flavor to the traditional cream sauce. I was only able to take two bites of my actual entree as the portions of the starter bruschetta, the garlic knots, the house salad, and the appetizer of meatballs were enough to fill me! The meatballs were very surprising as I’ve never had a meatball that quite literally melted in my mouth. The house red sauce was very well seasoned and didn’t have a bitter taste as tomato based sauces tend to have. The ricotta that comes with the meatballs was light and flavorful as well and perfectly complimented the red sauce and blend of meat. I will definitely be coming back!

My wife & I were both celebrating our birthdays on Sunday & booked the restaurant weeks in advance. I cannot say enough good things about the food, atmosphere, ambiance, & location. My only reason that I did not give this a 5 star is the waiter Paul and the fact that this restaurant is WAY too dark for me. My wife were enjoying visiting after the meal, yet we both felt "slightly" rushed after our dessert. Not a lot, but when you pay that amount for a nice meal, you should be allowed to remain as long as you desire.

Ricardo was our server and he was wonderful. The food was good but not the best Italian I’ve had. Atmosphere was great for a cozy date nights feel. Dessert was excellent! I don’t know how they made their Chocolate breading pudding has the consistency of a brownie!

Amore is one of our favorite restaurants in Birmingham. We went for my birthday and had a fantastic meal. Our waiter, Ricardo, was excellent. My husband and I both tried a special that was on the menu and both were delicious - he ordered a candied bacon tortelloni and I had the Chilean sea bass with gnocchi. Cocktails, wine and dessert were all great, too. Had a wonderful evening.

Tried this place based on friends’ recommendations. Delicious food and nice ambiance. Our server Paul was fantastic. Just in the strangest location (strip mall) and couldn’t take nice photos outside of the restaurant because of the weird location. Pricey but worth going to for special occasions. Will be back!

It was our first time here tonight for our anniversary and we fell in love with this place...We will be back. I had the sea bass and he had the Sunday gravy. These were both specials and I am so thankful our server talked us into them both. Drinks to dessert the service was amazing. I will be telling everyone to try that hasn’t before. This little gem is hidden but thankful we found it.

Amore is a special night out for my wife and I. We love the ambiance, the music they have playing and the candle lit tables. Their food is fantastic. The wait staff is superb and know how to make you feel comfortable during your dining experience. Service is excellent.

We were celebrating two birthdays - my wife’s and our granddaughter’s. All seven of us enjoyed our dinners. Everyone ordered a different entree - steak, pasta and seafood. Everything was excellent! Paul provided us with excellent service and his wine recommendations were spot on. The restaurant went out of their way to accommodate a request for a dessert item that was not on the menu any longer but was a long time favorite.

Absolutely love this place! I was struggling to rate the value, but went with 5 stars. We had a full meal with drinks and dessert and after tip our bill was about $175 for two people. For the food that is a little pricey (even though it is the most amazing food ever!) However, I think the value is there because of the overall experience. It does not feel like you are sitting in Birmingham, Alabama. When you are at Amore you feel like you are getting an escape the moment you walk through the doors. Everyday life can be all consuming with kids and sports and work, this is my favorite place to escape with my husband for a romantic evening.
