Delicious food and service was good, and timely! I always rave how good their food is and bring out of town family there often. Both salads are great and the bread this time was exceptional!

Everything was wonderful except that when I was there, the restaurant as too warm - uncomfortably so. Yhe noise level was a little high. We were lucky to have a corner table so that helped with the noise.

Our experience was ok. The saganaki wasn't flamed for more than 2-3 seconds, so it wasn't melted and we couldn't spread it on the bread. And for how many people were in the restaurant, we found service to be extremely slow. The food was good...but expensive.

My wife and I so enjoyed the unrushed service, the tasty and beautifully prepared and presented entrees, the tangy salad ... dressed just perfectly ... and the delicious desert. This truly is a wonderful place to dine and very well priced for such great food. On top of that the servers and even the owner strive to ensure all goes as it should. Highly recommend it.

I liked the new bread slices rather than the bread sticks and the dessert was great as it always is.

The food was great as always. We enjoyed our conversation and the food came fairly quickly with no long wait. We were never rushed and our server took the time to chat, which enhanced the experience.

I haven’t been to Cafe Amore for several years but after dining there Saturday evening I wondered how it had slipped from my radar. I thoroughly enjoyed my appetizer, salad and entree. My sister enjoyed her meal as much as I did and our only regret was not having room for dessert. Our server crowned the evening when she found out it was my sister’s birthday and presented her with a decorated chocolate chip cookie. That was service above and beyond ...

Enjoyable evening, appreciated the quiet corner as one in the party has hearing issues. Just felt chilled for a good part of the evening- probably because we were by an outside wall.
Would come again !

We had an absolute great time!! It was my wife's birthday and everything was made very special. I requested the table and every staff made it a great experience. We will go back for sure! P.S. the lasagna and 4 cheese is to die for.

Small portions for $71, but good quality. Excellent service but extremely noisy and difficult to have a comfortable conversation. Would not bring my date again to this restaurant.

For lunch the pizza was under cooked and the lunch special chicken penne was very bland. The prices were a little high for lunch. We were there for dinner 2 months ago and everything was good.

St Catharines hidden gem! This is the best restaurant in the city for anything from a romantic dinner for 2 to a celebration for a big group. Well priced and delicious food, make sure you save room for dessert!

Things have changed in regards to food. Less food higher prices. Likely reflective of increased minimum wage.

We went for my daughter's 16th birthday. The waitress was very friendly and the atmosphere was very warm and welcoming. Food was quick to come out with other staff assisting with bringing out food together. I had the mushroom ravioli which was super delicious. Desserts were also amazing!

I love Cafe Amore as they offer angel hair with the pasta selection. I don’t care for a lot of pasta. Chicken parm is delicious.
