For some unknown reason, this restaurant often seems to be overlooked by locals. Last weekend, I took two grandsons to a show at the Byham Theatre. Caffe Amante is just a short walk away. It does not have a child menu but the offering of spaghetti worked well and both plates were clean at the end of the meal. The check total was very reasonable for the area. The waitress seemed distracted by people at another table that it appeared she knew, so our service was a little slow particularly given the number of open tables. The food, as always, was good.
