We dined for our anniversary. They sat us at a table in front of the window, which had a beautiful view of downtown! Service was kind and attentive, Covid precautions were closely managed, and the food (chicken piccata, Caesar salad, polenta cakes, table bread) and wine were delicious. We very much enjoyed our celebrator dinner!

This was our first dining out experience since Covid and for our 22nd anniversary, we couldn't have been more pleased. From moments before we arrived and received a text from the owner that our awesome window table was running about 5 minutes behind to walking up to the door and being immediately greeted and temperature checked, to being seated and greeted by our server, the experience was phenomenal and the view of downtown was an amazing bonus. Our food was fine but not out of this world and while I know that wine is marked up, I couldn't give 5 stars for value. What gives That's Amore 5 stars overall was the delightful experience!

Somehow there was still a same-day Friday dinner reservation and I am so glad there was! The staff is SO nice and attentive. They were very safe and went above and beyond to provide a safe and healthy eating environment. The tables have curtains between them to give some privacy and also designate areas due to the increased restrictions. The food was SO good. We shared a caprese salad to start along with some fresh baked bread. For our entrees I had the crab pasta (which was amazing) and my partner had the chicken risotto special with mushrooms. We also shared the tiramisu for dessert. Perfect date night spot!

Excellent food and service as always. We’ve been several times in the past. This was our first dining out experience since the pandemic and wow did we ever pick the best place to go! We were celebrating our birthdays (6 months overdue because of the pandemic) David one of the owners and our server( I believe her name is Jena) made us feel so special like we were the only ones there!
They have excellent safety protocols so we felt very secure the entire time. We sat outside and our table was well positioned away from the other tables. Our entire meal and wine was delicious. The dessert was homemade by our server it was also delicious! She even treated us to it as a special birthday gift. Now that’s personal service!

During this Covid phase 2, we dined outside at a table for two. The sidewalk dining was nice on a temperate July evening after a trying week of work. We had a nice rose to open the experience and freshly made house bread with olive oil and balsalmic. We skipped the salad in favor of dessert so we started with the special, rosotto with wild mushrooms and boneless chicken, and the newly restyled chicken parmagian. Both were full of flavor and nice to have freshly made to serve instead of take out soggy cold at home. The dessert was new, raspberry cake - two cylindrical layers with cream and raspberries. There was more magic in the cake than my description since we nearly licked the dessert plates. We lingered for a bit longer finishing our rose bottle. It was really nice to eat out again at one of our favorite local restaurants.

We so very much appreciate your 5-star review, bluetreedog. We really love when someone narrates through each course of their meal.

That's Amore was the perfect place for my birthday dinner during the pandemic. Outdoor seating was out in the open and our server (one of the owner), placed all of the food and drink on an adjacent table for us to retrieve to keep social distance. All the while, you still got the chatter and social interaction that we're all so missing. Never mind the fact that the food was divine (it always is!). Will definitely return soon and love having this wonderful restaurant with delicious food and delightful service so close by.

Whoo Hoo! Our prior Pinot Nero was definitely not hitting the Mark (get it?), so I took a chance on this winery that's new to us. The Laurel Ridge Pinot Noir performed beyond expectations. Kudos to our long-time wine rep who has taught me so much over the years and whose recommendations have helped me expand our offerings. He's the same vendor who convinced me to add the Kvanchkara. If you haven't tried it yet with dessert, you're missing out on a little-known treat.

We went for Valentine's Day dessert pig-out and all three choices were excellent. The lemon sorbet was perfectly tart, and quite a large portion. The chocolate decadence was divinely rich and creamy. The two cannoli were creatively done with candied orange peel and butterscotch chips. The staff were friendly but the service a bit slapdash. Unfortunately for us there was a table of about 12 young men drinking and laughing very loudly. This restaurant is always noisy when full but we didn't expect that on a late weeknight.

We were promptly seated a few minutes before our reservation to a ya le near the window and were able to see the beautiful view of the city. Dinner was excellent. When we ordered dessert and they found out it was my partners birthday they comped the dessert which was much appreciated!
