It was our 30th anniversary and I noted that when I made the reservation. There was no recognition of that during the meal. Also, I have a gluten allergy and also noted that on the reservation. I had to repeat it several times. The waiter didn't even know what gluten was or what foods contained gluten. It is not a new phenomenon in the food world. ANY high profile restaurant should be educated and informed because it can be highly detrimental if someone with a gluten allergy eats the wrong food. That is what disappointed me about going here because it is an expensive experience and shouldn't be stressful and create anxiety when a customer is ordering. I also asked for no seasoning on my scallops and they were so salty I almost sent them back but I didn't. overall a very disappointing dinner on a very special occasion.

It was our first visit and it did not disappoint. The food was outstanding. Only complaint was we were celebrating a birthday and we were given a free dessert. But we were not offered any other choices for an extra dessert or coffee. We felt very rushed to get done and go. Also we were seated in a room called the wine room. Since it was our first visit I would not have chosen this. It was small, dark and one other table in the room was very noisy. I hope next time we go we will be able to have a seat in a bigger area and maybe have a chance to see out??

A little pricey but well worth it! The food was delicious! The garlic knots are amazing and both our entrees were awesome! We split some cannolis for dessert which were also amazing. Highly recommend for a quiet romantic dinner.

This was our second time to eat at Amore. It was fantastic! The service was perfect. Everything came out very fast (drinks, apps., entrees). It felt like the entire staff waited on us. Every time our water glasses were low... bam.....Someone was refilling it. The food was so good (perfect). Came out hot and was mouth watering good! Loved the experience and will be back many more times.

The most wonderful place, food and service! We know so many by name and they greet with our name. We sit at the bar with Tanya if it’s just George and I but love the table service with all the servers including Stephen, Tanya’s husband ! It’s worth the drive if you live in town !! It’s nice that it is close to The Farm !! Thank you Amore’ for always hitting a home run with us !!!

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.

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.
