Valentine’s Day can be a challenging night for any restaurant, but it makes the great ones shine! David and Guy run an absolute delight. Atmosphere, location, clientele, service (Mo is a peach), FOOD and View...Perfect!!! Any night I go out with my wife is amazing, Amore added a dozen cherries on top of the Sunday!
A rarely given 10 out of 10!

That's Amore is our favorite Italian restaurant in Seattle. We're so lucky to have this gem in our neighborhood. The food is always incredible and you can't beat the view of the Seattle skyline. The service is also exceptional.

Our dinner was very disappointing . . . it is possible we went there with very high expectations after the Evening Magazine piece. Our appetizer Fried Polenta Cake with mushroom sauce was good. We then ordered the Tortellone Special with mushrooms and short ribs, Fruit Di Mare with linguine, Wild Boar Ragu and Scampi Carbonara. The Tortellone was way under-cooked (beyond al dente!), felt like it was rushed, and the filling had an overpowering taste of strong raw garlic. The Fruit Di Mare had a delicious sauce with well balanced spiciness, but the linguine was way over-cooked, slightly mushy and definitively not enough sauce or seafood (four mussels, two tiny calamari pieces and three prawns. The Wild Boar had the potential of being a fantastic dish with all the right ingredients, but it was too sweet and the wine in the sauce had a raw-wine taste; the pasta in this case was perfectly cooked. The Scampi Carbonara tasted delicious, but the linguine was way over-cooked and it was dry, lacking sufficient sauce (we had to order extra sauce). Service was friendly, accommodating, informative. This restaurant has a potential to be a good authentic Italian, neighborhood restaurant, but they have to learn how to cook the pasta like an Italian (al dente).

Wonderful dinner. We had a beautiful table with a view of the sound, downtown Seattle and the sunset. However, it was spoiled by being right next to two restroom doors. Don't know if possible, but would be nice to have a screen so you can enjoy your dinner without everyone going to and from the restroom right next to your table. That was not a good view.

This restaurant is a local gem! Excellent food that won't break your budget, beautiful views, terrific service. We've been for special occasions, weeknights and friend gatherings. Nice enough to dress up if you like, casual enough to wear jeans. Practically perfect in every way.
