About Caffe Dell'Amore
In creating our Cafe, we wanted to bring a piece of Italy to Naples, Florida. As in Italy you'll find a small, family run restaurant, where the owners are the chefs. Our menu is not large, but what we offer is undoubtedly of the finest quality available, made with passion and love! There are no trans fats, no preservatives, no pre-made sauces or artificial flavorings. The recipes and ingredients are as they were 100 years ago. As one of our guests said, "Dining at Caffe dell'Amore is like a trip to Italy, without the passport". Our Chef/Owners passionately dedicate themselves to seeking out the very best ingredients, hand selecting locally grown, organic produce for ripeness and flavor and they use only organic meats and wild catch seafood. Fragrant Italian meats and luscious cheeses are flown in daily. Scrumptious bread and deserts are lovingly baked every morning. All served in our award winning, romantic, well appointed dining room, that was hand painted by an Italian artist

Caffe Dell'Amore Ratings and Reviews

Caffe dell Amore is our go-to spot for special occasions. Our daughter was visiting for her birthday and we could not wait to treat her to this special restaurant. It is small, but their menu is varied and everything we had was excellent. From the appetizers (sformati) to entrée (shrimp) to dessert (gelato), all was delicious. Not to mention the tiramisu with a candle for our daughter.
A small and intimate place. Never rushed- I don't think they even turn the tables in an evening. Wonderful place if you want to spend time with somebody special, catch up with long lost friends. Wonderful food, excellent service- they meet your needs, but aren't "all over you". Quiet and cozy. Not many places like this around any more.
Everything was excellent
the service as well as the food was excellent a hidden gem who would guess such a great place exists better than 5th avenue
A Hidden Gem in Naples Florida - Cafe Dell Amore
We dined at Café Dell Amore Sunday evening. And it immediately became my favorite in Naples, FL. This restaurant has wonderful ambiance. Service was wonderful accompanied by owner stopping at all tables to check on his guests. The food selection was fine. Try the appetizers - spinach balls are just that - spinach. I make them myself and they are usually much breadier. Wine list will please you also. When in Naples, find Café Dell Amore on Gulfshore Blvd. You will not be disappointed.

Great first time experience. Servers were very friendly and attentive. Excellent menu! Have driven by many times, finally on the advice of a friend we made a reservation. Will be back
Best restaurant in naples
What a find small but best food service, menu ,the owner was beyond sweet can't wait to go back

The staff was very friendly and patient with our group of six diners. They explained the specials and served us in a timely manner providing for all our special requests. The food was excitingly delicious and authentically Italian and fresh. The cost was more than average, but worth it for discriminating palates.
So glad to have discovered...
We found this restaurant after it was written up in some national publication. It was a rave review and we couldn't believe we didn't know it. This is a wonderful restaurant. Hospitable and kind service of simply wonderful food. We love to ask people who haven't been to join us here because it is consistently fine. Last time had four dishes at our table and I remember what people had because we talked about it….. wild boar: tender, flavorful, savory, zuppa de pesce in a white wine sauce, unusual and light. The lasagna: ingenious and simple, so meaty. I had scallops that were the best ever. In a town where there's lots of pricy restaurants with mediocre food and service, Caffe Dell'Amore is a real find.
Best Italian restaurant in Naples
From the wine to the background music to the food offerings to the wait staff this far surpasses most experiences in Naples. Food was perfectly prepared; appropriate portion size. Wine selection is great.
An incredible gastronomic voyage
Our server, David, was erudite in is knowledge of the cuisine. Each serving was more heavenly than the previous. We shared three three appetizers....each was a dazzling. Each entree had multiple flavors that stayed with us for hours. The desserts were so delicious that we ordered a second serving of each. You will feel so well for hours and hours after you leave.

I hate to admit it, but I love the wild boar dish and I have it every time! This meat dish served with soft polenta and a rich sauce (not cream based) is like being back in Italy!

Great neighborhood restaurant. Everything is outstanding . Try the spinach ball appetizer
The wait was well worth it.
We had been trying to go for a while now and it was well worth the wait. Everything from the service to the food was outstanding. The noise level was a bit louder than i expected but it didn't bother us a bit. The spinach balls were amazing, the meat lasagna was amazing, the wild boar was amazing...quite honestly everything was. Will definitely be going back soon and as frequently as we can its that good!
Enjoyed a very, very good dinner
Food was terrific, especially the lasagna, mussels and clams appetizer, tiramisu . Will definitely return and add to our list of favorite Naples restaurants.
Great food, service
Great food, service
Special occasion dining
Initial reception and table location was not welcoming. Overall the room had a romantic Italian atmosphere. Our main server was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. Special efforts were made to help with our requests. The food quality was good, but not exceptional. Our server, Martin, and the atmosphere, made our dining experience enjoyable.
Intimate dining at its best
Wonderful meal in an intimate setting. A must do when you are in Naples.
Food and service were excellent!

The service , food, and ambiance was absolutely perfect. Definitely will return.
This was the best meal I have had in the past year. Service was impeccable, atmosphere good, food and wine superb. Would recommend it to anyone visiting this part of Florida.
A nice surprise!
We heard that this restaurant was the real deal, authentic Italian food and we weren't disappointed. The baked ziti with eight cheeses was delicious as well as the eggplant ravioli. Their tomato sauce is really good. The "Shrimp alla Siciliana" was a nice blend of sweet and salty. The menu offers a nice variety of dishes and they do have gluten free pasta, which I will order the next time.
Top notch as usual!
Each time my wife and I have dinner here we try to have something different off the menu! We've never been disappointed. We have dined our way thru most of the menu! Everything from lasagna bolognese to veal osso buco to baked pasta! They are delisioso! Don't forget to save room for the poached pear! Excellent!
Excellent service... Superb food
Dominic was very friendly and the wait staff was superb. Everything was delicious. ..my wife and I had prosciutto cup appetizers, sea scallops and ziti all of which exceeded our expectations. Then there was the desert...Belgian chocolate cake with espresso gelato...amazing. oh, and they had an excellent wine list. If you are in Naples this place is a must.
Best food in Naples!!
Best food in Naples!!
Without doubt, the best italian restaurant in Naples. We dined here 4 times this season and enjoyed it every time as did the people we brought with us. The grouper piccata is fabulous as are the scallops. I almost hate to rave about this restaurant because it is very small. The staff is fabulous. This is the kind of restaurant where everything is great, from the bread to the dessert.

What a cute intimate restaurant . There are only 10-12 tables in this small cozy room. The Italian music is playing in the back ground . Reservations are a must . Some unique Italian dishes and plenty of seafood too .
Speical Evening -
We had a wonderful dinner the other evening, service from entering the front door to our exit after dessert and coffee was outstanding. Wine list exceptional, food superb and nice décor. We never felt rushed and the owner was always visible and attentive. We look forward to returning again when we are in Naples.

This was our second visit. Somewhat disappointed versus the first time. The appetizer special and spinach balls were very tasty. But, the grouper tended to be fishy and not as succulent as previous.

The food was Very Good. Wish we lived closer so we could go more often. The service was great
Lucky to live a block from great Naples restaurant
After three visits, I will absolutely continue to take my family members and best friends to this lovely restaurant. Menu offers special Italian dishes, wine list offers variety, service is attentive and ambience is relaxed and elegant.
Nice, but so many other choices!
We went to the restaurant because it was so highly recommended. We didn't realize that it didn't have a bar and didn't serve cocktails, which was a negative for the friends that we dined with who are not wine fans. The service was quite friendly, but the food was only so-so. With so many other places to dine in Naples, we won't be coming back.

European atmosphere and great ambiance, friendly wait staff,and supesrb food.
Best Italian in Florida
We could only get a very early booking and almost didn't go! That would have been a big mistake as we had a wonderful meal, very friendly service and overall a great evening. The spinach balls are fantastic and so was the rib filled ravioli. This is a must place to go and dine when in Naples. A lot of detail goes into the preparation and only the best ingredients are used. Thank you so much for the great meal.
Always So Good!
We have enjoyed Caffe Dell' Amore many times and once again we were not disappointed. While many of the menu items were tempting, I always come back to the house made it's-not-your-mama's-ordinary lasagna. Sooo good! Staff is so friendly and fun. This is one place where they are truly happy that you are there. Can't wait to return!
Best Italian restaurant in Florida!
Planning our trip from Maine, we saw this restaurant online, booked a reservation immediately, came for dinner last week and were not disappointed. The ravioli stuffed with eggplant in the SanMarzano sauce was outstanding! The service was great; we loved the ambiance and the fact that the place was small and intimate. We split the chocolate flourless cake with strawberry gelato which was AMAZING!Hot and delicious. Best of all was the friendliness of Dominic. He chatted with us and was just such a wonderful host. We will always return to this restaurant when we visit Naples in the future. My Italian-American husband said that the ravioli was the best he has ever had in any Italian restaurant anywhere and almost as good as his mother's.,
