We were a group of eleven people having an annual Christmas dinner and we chose Cafe L'Amore this year. The staff was excellent and efficient. They began with fried calamari and then progressed to a platter of Ceasar salad and one of a huge mixed salad. Penne vodka was the next course and we all agreed it was delicious! We... More

It's a nice place, parking is a little difficult, but for the price I'd gone somewhere else. We spent $30 on 3 dessert and coffee.

We've been here several times because it's a middle point for us and lots of friends Food is good. Service is fine. But there's always a long wait and they don't take reservations for less than 6. Love the whipped cream on the cappuccino Byo which I like.

We were excited about a holiday dinner with friends before a concert at Ramapo College. But what we thought would be a lovely, leisurely dinner turned into a rushed experience with serveral missteps including a server ordering what she recommended, but not what we ordered! I guess we should have been tipped off by our brusque reception at the restaurant... More

The food was so delicious. Well prepared, a good portion and so tasty. However, the fact that the tables are so close to one another takes away from the whole dining experience. It got very warm in the restaurant, and very noisy.

I think I am the only one that doesn't love this restaurant. It is always packed for dinner which is a constant mystery to me. The food is just ok, it is not inexpensive, service only adequate( depends actually on the server, I've had some very pleasant, always rushed though and some not so pleasant) valet parking, I don't get...

A friend recommended Cafe L'Amore for dinner. She's a huge fan and even has them deliver food to her house even though she's a couple towns away. We had a large party of 9. I called around 4:30 and made a reservation for 7:30. They were very accommodating. They sat us at a long table in the corner which gave... More
