The occasion was Mother's Day. Receptionist was nice, and the reservation for 4:30pm met. The waiter did well, bringing us a request of butter for the complementary fresh bread. The dinner was eggplant parmigiana for myself, and fettuccine Alfredo for my wife. The eggplant in my opinion, should have had some crispiness. The Alfredo was a bit on the butter side, rather than creamy. The dinner was tasty. The restaurant was peopled, but didn't feel crowded. It wasn't noisy. All in all, we had a pleasant time.

Delicious selection of food, you can tell everything is homemade. I got the pasta primavera then subbed the creamy tomato sauce for marinara to make it vegan- the marina is excellent. They bring a fresh, warm sun-dried tomato focaccia to start. The family portions are huge and a great value. My family started with the house salad which was full of fresh, flavorful vegetables. I would definitely go again. They are also very accomodating to dietary preferences since everything is made fresh.

It was Mother’s Day so there were lots of happy and talkative families, mine included. The buffet was really good but missing my favorite (chicken parmigiana). My only real complaint was my table. It seemed to be smack in the middle of the traffic flowing to the buffet area. Great time though...the moms loved it!

I made a reservation on OpenTable and the rest of the party arrived before I did. The hostesses both could not remember or figure out where they had seated the rest of my party (and since the rest of the party was at the brunch buffet, it wasn't clear where they were sitting). I had to go around the restaurant looking for their table. It was ridiculous that the hostesses couldn't figure out where they sat my party when it wasn't even that busy.

The table that we were sat at was right in the middle of the dining room. Every time someone tried to be seated at a surrounding table, we had to move our chairs. I actually had to get up from my seat and move the chair across the room to let someone pass by me that was using a walker. The restaurant is not easily handicap accessible in that regard. I had to move many other times because there are too many tables squished into the dining room and not enough space to move around. Since we were seating in a walking area, everyone had to uncomfortably squeeze by our table.

At the brunch buffet, the man making waffles actually picked the waffle off of the iron with his hands instead of using a utensil.

The service was ok. We had to ask for more beverages. The food was less than desirable. My mom got sick when she got home from the food (on MOTHER'S DAY, mind you).

I will never, ever go back to this restaurant. I recommend it to NO ONE.

The management worked with us to arrange a birthday party . Everything was done as expected, the food came on time, and the staff helped us with the birthday cake. All dishes were the traditional Italo-American cuisine that That's Amore is known for. We had a great time!

It was my first dining experience here at the suggestion of a friend, and was every bit as they said! I had the spaghetti bolognese with an appetizer of their mussels in white sauce. It was my first time trying mussels, and I was surprised when they brought out a large bowl filled with them! It was well worth the $8 and very delicious! The basil and garlic complimented them very well!

Their portions are generous and the service was exceptional. It was cheaper for two than Coastal Flats or even Ted’s Montana Grill in the Downtown Crown, and that’s with even more food on your plate! This will be my go-to for quick bites or when I’m very hungry

Had not been to the restaurant in a very long time. They were very accommodating for a large party of 14. Food was ok, didn't have a good selection of drinks . I think they need to have more updated drinks the younger people are looking for, like frozen drinks, Mojito, mule etc.
The service was good and the manger was very attentive.

We planned a Birthday Dinner for our son. We had about 11 people with us including 1 child and an infant. The staff was very accommodating and offered options that we did not realize had been available. We actually try to visit That's Amore at least twice a year.

Enjoyed dining at this restaurant, but the dish i ordered wasn’t quite as good as the previous time. Maybe because they had a lot of customers this time and the chef did not have enough time to prepare the food like before.

We were celebrating our Anniversary/Valentine's Day with family. The food was fantastic and plentiful ordering family style. Portions were great. Wait staff could have been more attentive though as we had to ask for water several times. Leaving the restaurant we were not offered the roses that were abundantly there for Valentine's day. No one at the desk was paying attention as we left (we were surprised that no one did).

P.S. They could not find our reservation on their computer which caused anxiety as we were with our 95 year old mother).

My wife and I went last night. We had a BOGO Entertainment coupon which was nice. The bread was very good. The drinks (Grey Goose martini and wine) were strong pours. We had the cypress appetizer and it was outstanding. We both had pasta with seafood dishes where outstanding. We had a strawberry pastry dessert that was both huge and fantastic. The server was very pleasant and attentive. A great evening!

The service is lousy, the food is not good and soda is flat. The seafood in my pasta is not fresh. The bacon in my salad is stale. The decoration need to be updated. Both my co-worker and I didn't enjoy the last meal in Maryland and we will definitely not go back to That's Amore if we return.

There was nothing special about this restaurant other than the QUANTITY of food on your plate, mediocre quality at best. I can not recommend this restaurant.

The food was wonderful, and it came out very quickly. However, there were a few minor annoyances. First, there was no hostess at the hostess stand when we arrived and there were a couple of parties waiting. We were finally seated by a waiter. Then there was a 50% bottle of wine discount which we took advantage of, and it wasn't until we went to pay that we were told it couldn't be combined with a coupon we had although we had mentioned our coupon at the very beginning of the evening. Neither of these took away from the great food, but for the price paid, they were disappointing.

The restaurant was outstanding, with respect to the food and the value received. However, I did not rate the experience "outstanding" because I was unable to get the full value of my Groupon coupon, because it had expired the day before. I was hoping that the restaurant would be able to overlook the expiration date of the coupon, but they chose not to do so. Other than that, our experience was wonderful and the food is highly recommended.

Both of our main courses (one veal and one fish) were overcooked and chewy. Both seem to have been made with frozen product. Our server was unsure about the menu. After placing our order we didn't see our server again for 20 to 30 minutes. Summary: low quality food, overpriced, and poor service --- send your money elsewhere.

The food was decent but nothing special. The meats seemed dry for several of us. The sauces were on the slaty side. Veal was on the dry side and seemed like it might have been overlooked. Service was superb and the ambiance is pretty good.
