After walk passed many times, I have finally booked and try out the food here. It’s very cozy and nice inside with Christmas decoration. I have ordered and choose dishes for 2 course meals in advance. The booking process is a bit too complex for...just a lunch with friends but all is forgiven after a meal. Lasagna is so good, even my Italian friend hasn’t complained lol. The desserts are alright. Overall, we had a great time there.More

We had eaten once before at Amore and we weren’t disappointed on our second visit. I booked online and pre-booked our meal which I thought was a brilliant idea. Great atmosphere in the restaurant, it was absolutely packed , but even though it was busy...we were attended too by the courteous staff and nothing was a bother.More

Recently booked the Amore to celebrate my daughters graduation, was for a party of sixteen and in spite of the party arriving at different times (late) the afternoon went like a dream, really smooth service and very attentive staff, all of my guests praised the...restaurant very highly and enjoyed the meal immensely, the Amore is already our favourite Italian but I think a few of my guests have been converted and I would expect them to book this place in the very near future, first class all round, the only downside was the two hour timeslot which seemed to pass by so quickly, but all in all amazing day out, well done to all!More

A local recommended that I go here and I am very happy I took the recommendation. The food was absolutely amazing & the service was some of the best I’ve had. The servers were incredibly attentive & knowledgeable and the food & drink were absolutely...delicious. I started with the Focaccia Aglio & Rosmarino (garlic & rosemary) which was £5.95. The focaccia was a drier and much thinner focaccia than I had previously had, almost similar to a dry pizza crust. It had a light butter coating and some Rosemary sprigs in the centre of it, which all grouped towards the centre when it was folded into the basket. It was served with balsamic vinegar & olive oil. The flavour combination was perfectly mixed (although the focaccia was on the drier side). My main was the Paccheri Cacio Pepe e Porcini (“Large tubed Shaped pasta cooked in a Pecorino Cheese, Pepper & Creamy Porcini Sauce, troppo buono... at £10.95”). It was a rich & creamy pasta, with the perfect ratio of sauce to pasta. The sauce was thicker and had a good amount of mushrooms in it. The pepper added a nice kick to the dish, while perfectly placed along the edge of dish, to allow for moderation. The server recommended a good white wine to pair with the pasta and they had a great drink selection, which was reasonably priced - as was the entire menu (especially for the portion sizes). The espresso martini (my “dessert”) had a great touch, with “Amore” stamped on top. Much like a lot of older architecture, the restaurant was not as accessible… there was an elderly woman in front of me, who had a difficult time going up the stairs. The staff all had masks on (Covid precautions) & although busy, people were spaced out well. I would absolutely recommend Amore to others & would go back again.More

We had an absolutely fantastic meal here. Busy place for a Thur night which was great to see. Our food was delicious & the portions were generous. I especially enjoyed my pappardelle alla calabrese main & our daughter said that the minestrone soup was the...best ever. My husband absolutely loved his “dominoes” pizza. The service was attentive & although at one time we felt a bit rushed, all that was needed was a request for more time & we were left to enjoy our meal. Actually can’t stop thinking about my main course!!More
