Owners description

Restaurant Amore serves genuine Italian cuisine, cooked to perfection by an Italian chef. The menu changes daily with the dishes inspired by traditional food served in Rome, as well as modern variations, with gnocchi to die for. The produce is sourced from local sources as well as imported specialty ingredients from Italy. The wine selection complements the flavour and features great Italian wines and some of the outstanding local wines. The décor is elegant and harmonious and is a great place for a quiet reunion with friends, a business meeting that will impress your client or as a romantic evening. The service is impeccable, attentive, non-intrusive – so you can enjoy your company, the food and the wine. Restaurant Amore was privileged to be awarded four stars from the renowned food critic – Jos Baker – one of the highest commendation that can be given. You can book the restaurant for a private function for up to 32 people. To find out pricing and options, please email us.

  • 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.
