“We all have a good story to tell about why we love what we do and why we do what we love, but the truth is in the sauce!”


Dino Drakos, Host/Executive Chef

Amore Ristorante Italiano, has been a traditional family owned and operated business since 2005. We are first generation Americans who have inherited the great cultures of the old world; who have actually lived and breathed the culture of the people we represent, in the translation of the food, wine, and spirit we serve you.

We attract a varied clientele, including an extremely loyal following of regular patrons, Italian food aficionados and out of towners. They enjoy the ristorante’s signature dishes, including succulent veal scaloppini, lobster fra diavolo, our famous crab cakes and award winning meatballs.

Meat favorites include a prime steaks, veal chops, pork chops, veal scaloppini, chicken, and delicious Italian sausage.

Our seafood choices are only the freshest catch available. This includes fresh gulf black grouper, shrimp, colossal lump crab meat, New Bedford scallops, lobster tails, mussels, and clams.

What great Italian restaurant doesn’t offer a vast array of mouthwatering pasta dishes? Some of our more popular dishes include penne carbonara, penne alla vodka, lasagna and baked ziti. Our homemade ravioli choices are second to none, including crab, lobster, cheese, Bolognese, and sausage.

All our dishes are made from the highest quality, freshest ingredients, and the utmost love and passion! Our wine list is vast and sure to please even the most discriminating wine lover.

Our business is about understanding that you deserve better and you have earned the right to treat yourself to the best things in life, including good food and good service. That’s why we do what we do!

We are always available to insure the most wonderful dining experience. That’s our promise!
