We enjoyed our meal at Amores. The pot Roast special was tender, tasty and an ample serving. Waitress was very pleasant and efficient. I do not think you will be disappointed.

The building was so cute and caught our attention when driving by. We stopped to look at the menu and decided we had to come back for a meal. We ended up having pizza (which was very good) but the whole menu looked so amazing that we can't wait to go back next time we are in town. There is... More

We had been told by friends that this was very good and problems in the past have been worked out and I must say we were very pleased. We ate there early but would suggest reservations for most nights. Will definitely be visiting again. Huge variety with good fish selections.

This is a pretty decent little place. The food is not bad, not remarkable but pretty decent.They have specials that are good and they change regularly. My $.02 is the pizza is the weak link. Pre-made crusts, canned sauce etc. Not terrible but nothing special. I would give this place a try, order one of the specials and I think... More

We sat on the front porch as we brought our dog with us. The server was very friendly and went out of her way to provide good service, even bringing our dog water and a treat. The food was very good. One note to those planning on going there, they do not serve alcohol but you can carry in your... More

Visiting Family were heading home the next day and we decided to get pizza at the Amore so we didn't have to cook & it is close by. We order 3 different 12" pizzas, pepperoni, marghurite, & veggie. They were absolutely terrible! Crust was burnt, had a funny back flavor, and about inedible. Must say, they had plenty of cheese... More

So glad this place is open again- lunch 11:30 to 2pm - dinner 5-9. The baked Brie was perfect appetizer size and my rack of lamb very flavorful crusting with a Pinot sauce. The green beans crisp tender and the mashed potatoes flavorful. Looking forward to many more good meals.
