Owners description

In this small, family-run Restaurant Amore, you will find classic Roman-Italian soul food in a casual but elegant setting. The menu is an array of traditional, rustic dishes that changes daily and focuses on local farm to table as well as imported Italian products. Amore showcases Italy’s finest artisanal gnocchi and pastas, served with traditional and imaginative sauces, along with a series of tasty antipasti and hearty main courses. Modelled after the simple restaurants in Italy that serve as neighbourhood dining rooms, the focus is on timeless classic Italian dishes such as "penne alla carbonara" and "gnocchi con gorgonzolla e noci". Amore is just the kind cozy neighbourhood restaurant you would be thrilled to find in the narrow back streets of Rome or Florence.

User reviews

  • A meal at Amore is one of my favourite food occasions. This owner run restaurant is always striving to offer the best food and experience. The pasta and gnocchi are sublime, and the desserts made lovingly by Dessy, are delicious. The mille feuille is perfection! Thank you Kiki, Dessy and Lawrence for your generous hospitality.

  • We just keep going back. Every time the menu is a little different and always good. The service is great. Even when it's busy! Great house wine and a real gem to find in this area.

  • Amore is a lovely, intimate Italian restaurant owned by an Italian couple. I love that they have an extensive wine list of both South African and Italian wines. The food is delicious. I loved the butternut ravioli and pork medallions. My only complaint is that the desserts (I have tried 2 of their 3 desserts) are not great which is disappointing considering the food is so fantastic.

  • Yesterday evening I had the most unfortunate experience at this restaurant. My wife ordered the special of three courses and I ordered a main which I explained to the owner/manageress and explained that we would be sharing the first course and she said she would split it on to two plates. On receipt of the bill I noticed that each course had been itemised instead of accumulated as the special. Assuming that the owner had over looked this, I queried it with her and was told that under the special it was written that there was no sharing, and as we had shared the first course the special had now become itemised. Which incidentally was not explained to me when I ordered. I explained I eat out regularly and have visited their restaurant on more than one occasion and have never been charged like this and said I will pay the bill but will never return. To which she replied, ‘that I am putting her on the spot’. To which I replied, ‘How can I be when I have offered to pay but will never return’. To which she took my card and I paid.
