Being Italian, we rarely visit Italian restaurants outside Italy: but also being vegetarians in France, these are often useful fallback options if we want a decent meal, which explains why we found ourselves falling hungry and thirsty on a warm May day into this lovely restaurant in the lovely town of Loches. On the prettily decorated terrace we ate a perfectly executed appetizer of bruschetta with tomatoes (so simple, so hard to get just right), with a light salad of grated vegetables topped with sunflower seeds and black sesame seeds (a special touch). But the absolutely unique highlight was the grilled aubergine in a delicious marinade of oil, vinegar and huge Moroccan mint leaves. Lovely! Then fresh homemade pasta with tomatoes and aubergine, also really good, followed by a classic tiramisu. Accompanied by a crisp white wine from Orvieto. Wonderfully friendly family service, with the Calabrian cook coming out to check that everything was ok (and it was!).

Amoremio is a real italian restaurant, the chef is a funny italian man and his pasta is delicious! I recommend you to try Parmigiana and Tiramisu!
The atmosphere is warm and familiar, you can definitely have a nice time in this place!!

First visit to this new restaurant near the cinema in Loches.
As there was no carte we had the menu du jour which had a set starter and then choice of two main courses and three desserts.
Well cooked and very enjoyable. Informal ambience, friendly family welcome. Courtyard area looked attractive for a warm day.

The all-you-can-eat weekend menu for 15 euros is a rip-off! We had a pathetic selection of cold and luke warm appetizers followed by, I kid you not, half a spoonful of cold pasta which was served as the 'main meal'. When asked for more pasta, we were met with surprised looks and then 15 minutes later were served another measly portion of cold pasta. The only redeeming feature of the meal was the tiramisu. Wine was overpriced and atmosphere overly friendly and annoying. Disappointing.
