My wife and I had heard good things about Amore, so we selected it for a special dinner on our anniversary. The restaurant is located in a shopping strip on one of Birmingham's busiest thoroughfares. Pulling up in front of the establishment is less than impressive, but when you walk through the door, that all changes. Amore has a magnificent atmosphere. Their bar is first rate. They make one the best vodka martinis that I have ever had...with blue cheese stuff olives! There are several dining areas. One near the bar, a small dining area called the "wine room" and, I believe, two larger main dining rooms. We enjoyed the "wine room". I had the eggplant parmigiana and my wife had the shrimp marinara. Both dishes were excellent and the portions plentiful. The only drawback was service was a bit slow, due to several wait staff members calling off work. The co-owner, Angela, went out of her way to explain the situation and make up for the situation by providing some drinks and desserts on the house. We plan on a return visit soon. It may become our new favorite restaurant in the area!
