Unvaccinated children under 12 are welcome in the dining room if they wear a mask except when eating. Other folks are welcome to enjoy our outdoor seating.

Going, "vaccine-only," is a scary decision for the business...it's an easy decision for Guy and David who've always taken additional steps to protect staff and guests.

A lovely place with outside tables well removed from the street, and from other diners. Friendly service. Salad and bread were fabulous. The main dish had a great flavor, except that it was buried under way too much salt.

This restaurant changed ownership a few years ago and the new owners are on top of their game. No place in Seattle is a "cheap eat" anymore, but don't mind paying up for top drawer food and service. So glad to have rediscovered this old time favorite.

Responded on August 11, 2021

Thank you so much, Doug, for posting your 5-Star Review. We know the food and service are still in tact after these 17 months; but we're so clouded by the past 17 months it's sometimes hard to judge how we're doing as owners. And the tags you selected also tell us we're on target for the place we want to be for both our long-time and new guests. The days of full service, 'cheap eats,' are probably gone. But we've got plans to add more value to your meals and experience at the current prices.

Dinner was excellent. You be the judge on whether pricey: 2 people, 2 drinks each and one entree each equals $115 including tax and tip. We sat outside which was very pleasant. I would go back.

That's Amore - Seattle
Responded on August 6, 2021

We really appreciate your review, Likes8s. The, "pricey," is something we're getting normalized. We lowered prices from lockdown through this spring, but we did go back up. We are working to add more value for the current prices, but we need the current revenue to keep to withstand at least one month of closure before we start digging into personal savings, enough to pay our people enough to make it their job and not their, "gig," and enough to consider benefits for us and our staff.

That's Amore - Seattle
Responded on August 3, 2021

Thanks so much for the 5-Star Review, KariA. And thanks for trusting us with your occasion. For the value score, I recognize that it'll take folks awhile to catch on that restaurants can no longer run on razor-thin margins, that we have to pay people so that this is their job and not a side gig, and that we need to provide benefits for those employees. But I'm watching for ways to provide more value at the same price. Any ideas you have for that are appreciated.

Another wonderful dinner at That’s Amore. Remodel has made the restaurant more contemporary but retained the neighborhood feel. Food is delicious, as always, but with extra something in the presentation that was appreciated. Our wine was superb (a Barolo, we were celebrating). We ate outdoors, which has thankfully, expanded a bit. The whole experience, with a friendly and warm welcome and service, was as always, appreciated.

We've made so many changes since March 2020 (while keeping our core recipes in tact) that we sometimes forget to stop and enjoy the new / refreshed aspects. So thanks very much, Anon, for posting your 5-Star Review and spreading the good word about what our regulars can expect on their first return to the dining room or sidewalk cafe. That Barolo is one of my bingos on our updated wine list. Really happy that it added so much pleasure to your meal.

We were a large party. Everything we ordered - and everyone ordered different drinks, appetizers, main courses, and desserts - was scrumptious except for one item which was not at all good. A bit of a long bit to travel within the city, but a very pleasant little section of Seattle.
