Italian
An understated storefront hides a coveted skyline view—just one of the many ways you could underestimate this longtime cafe on Mount Baker’s main drag. The menu, the sign—even the name—are a bit of a throwback, but current owners Guy Devillier and David Hoefer took over in 2018 and keep things attuned to today. Carbonara packs more nuance than you might expect, the slightly crackly pizza’s better than it has to be, and the bar pours lambrusco and negroni. No wonder tables are loaded with a diversity of diners.

    Warm greeting from owner Guy. We sat inside, but an outside table opened up before we ordered and he asked us if we wanted to dine outdoors. We did. Ambience was perfect…nice breeze under the trees. Food great portions not large not small some would say just right. Delicious. Dessert great as well but super tiny portion of the flourless cake. You should come here.

    Overall it was a fairly decent restaurant, but did not stand out either. The carbonara was a little plain, but the paparadelle was a little more interesting. Their tiramisu was really good.

    This is a gem treasured by its. neighborhood. It's a lively atmosphere and tables in the back have a view of downtown. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. But the real draw is the food. There were so many items on the menu that I wanted to try that it will be several more visits until I satisfy my curiosity and my palette. This is a great place and I recommend it highly.

Intimate setting with unbeatable city views from the rear tables. Time after time, I love coming back here. Thank you for fitting us in for my birthday dinner yesterday!

    We celebrated my husband’s 60th birthday and That’s Amore was the perfect low key gem we were looking for. Great food, tasted like being invited over to a friend’s home for dinner (provided they were a gourmet chef). Spectacular, panoramic view of the city and wonderful service. We didn’t have to ask for anything. I appreciate how gracious the owners were in letting us add one more to our party of 3 at the last minute and also in accommodating differing guest arrival times. We’ll be back for the red velvet cake on Valentine’s Day :) Wish I could have tried more desserts, but I was too full.

    Always a great time at That’s Amore! Staff is fantastic, ambiance is so warm and neighborly! Food never disappoints…although this time I strayed from my usual rage and went for the carbonara - I won’t get that dish again, very small portion and was much more runny than I’m used to. Stick with the Ravi every time! Delicious!

    That's Amore - SeattleResponded on June 5, 2022First: sorry for the delay in responding to your 5-Star Review. While our carbonara isn't a large portion--we found the richness kept people from finishing a larger portion--the runny sauce is a red flag for us. So we're eyeing those much more carefully. Thanks for calling that out to us. Hope we see you again soon.

    One of my favorite Italian spots since moving to Seattle. Small restaurant so it’s super cozy and nice view of the city. Food is always delicious so my husband and I usually order something different each time. I had amore salad and bucatini carbonara this time and both so good. My son is usually pretty picky when it comes to pasta but he always loves their fettuccine Alfredo.

    That's Amore - SeattleResponded on June 5, 2022Hey, BB22, thank you so much for taking the time to post your 5-Star Review. Our heads are two sizes bigger after reading your comments.

    Great food, I suggest the pork belly. Strange thing - we thought we were ordering cocktails for $12 each and they server brought us a canned beverage! The menu was very misleading as it mentioned all of the ingredients for each one. Also not a fan of no mention of the 20% service charges on a party of 2. That should be stated up front on the website. Overall small restaurant with amazing views and tasty food. On a side note we were celebrating a special occasion and it wasn't mentioned until leaving. So don't expect any special treatment.

    That's Amore - SeattleResponded on June 5, 2022Hey, onechonsa, thank you for taking the time to post a review. Every one of them helps, and every one of them matters to us. We do notify guests of the 20% service charge on the printed menu and the menu on our website; but it's so easy to be drawn directly to the food, right? We do also list the brand and ingredients of the wine cocktails we sell so as not to mislead, but that won't matter very soon as we're mere days away from having a full bar. Now that fact that we didn't celebrate your special occasion at the table was a complete miss on our part. If you want a redo on that part, you come on back in here and remind me of this mis-step. We'll show you how we are supposed to provide a treat for your special occasion.
