THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Amore Ristorante Italiano Restaurant Review

: Amorè Ristorante Italiano in La Quinta serves dishes inspired by Sicily, Tuscany and Rome. The modernist dining room is encased in steel and glass, but warm lighting and an open kitchen create a welcoming ambience. The large menu includes classics such as veal piccata, chicken Marsala and osso buco, as well as a variety of pastas, including the Michelangelo---fettuccine with Asiago cream sauce, shallots, mushrooms, peas and prosciutto di Parma. End your meal with cannoli, gelato or homemade hazelnut cheesecake. The wine list is acceptable, though not very expansive. A pleasant option is to eat at the bar and admire the view of the room.
