It was kind of loud, but the ambiance was nice. Had a wobbly tiny table. Food was delicious.

This was my first visit and I was impressed. The ambiance is refined but welcoming; it is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or family dinner. Our server Alex was attentive and gave great menu recommendations. I will definitely return!

Absolutely incredible dinner. Terrific service, impeccable food, great variety, timing and pace of courses perfect. A little dark until eyes adjusted to the ambience. I highly recommend the crab cakes appetizer, seared scallops, seafood risotto, & bread pudding. All are not to be missed. Pricing is a little on the high side, but justified and well worth it. Definitely in my go-to rotation with Bottega and Gianmarco's.

Amore is our favorite restaurant in Birmingham, period!! The food, service is perfect; only negative I’ll say is it can be a little too cool for us. Actually we noticed the temperature was much better when we were there last week so maybe they got the message.
Any of the menu items are excellent; you won’t be disappointed! Ricardo is our favorite waiter, so we always ask to sit in his section, but any of the wait staff are good. Wish Amore was closer to us otherwise we’d be there more frequently!

Outstanding good and service. Prices have gone up quite a bit since last time we were here; near top of the range for this type restaurant. But he was excellent and worth the money.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but you're transported to a friendly and beautiful Italian village once you step inside. The staff is well coordinated, proficient, and very friendly. We actually had a waiter remember us from our visit over a year ago (we're not locals). Food is plentiful, excellent quality, and delicious. Amore is on our must-do list each time we return to Birmingham.

My wife and I went on a date to Amore. We were very well taken care of by our waiter. The food was spectacular. It is a little pricey, but the quality and quantity of food is well worth the price.

Next time I make a reservation for Amore I will be sure to ask fir a table away from the bar. The noise level was not too bad but significantly louder than other parts of the restaurant. Overall we had a great experience, food was delicious as always and our waiter was both knowledgeable and personable.
