About Caffe Dell'Amore
Naples, FL 34102
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

We cannot believe we have lived in Naples and not dined at this amazing restaurant! What a find! Fabulous food, amazing wait staff...and did not feel rushed. A must go to for sure! Already have made plans to go back and take family!

Authentic Italian cuisine - outstanding service. Wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. We were greeted warmly and the food was the best we've had in Naples.
The restaurant is tucked away in a small plaza, and when we walked through the door we felt transported to Italy.
This restaurant moves to the top of my list of places to frequent.

The friends that recommended the restaurant to us described it as a "hidden gem". Caffe Dell Amore is north of town away from crowds so parking is easy and the food and service is terrific. It is as close to Italy you can get without actually going there. Highly recommended.

This is a restaurant that never disappoints. Our group had the prosciutto cups, spinach balls, lasagna, baked ziti, as well as the sausage and peppers. Everyone raved about their meals, and just when you think you cant eat anymore, their desert menu is worth investigating, especially the chocolate cake.

We enjoyed another tremendous evening dining at Caffe Dell'Amore. From Dominic's warm hospitality to the outstanding food/wine, along with wonderful service from Martin, Dell'Amore has become our very favorite restaurant in Naples. When you go, please try the spanish balls, cheese salad and any of their great entrees. This most recent visit, we took our friends and really enjoyed the pasta with truffles, red snapper, eggplant tower, and the osso buca. Great job!!
We were treated very poorly by the host ...
We were treated very poorly by the host when we first arrived. He insisted that he called us twice that day to conifrm the reservation and we never called back. In fact, we never received his calls but did receive a call the night before saying that we should only call if we were cancelling. This was not a pleasant way to start our evening. Our server was polite and when we asked about appetizers he suggested the spinach balls. When they came, we were surprised that they were as small as marbles and fairly bland except for the butter sauce they were in. Our entrees were ok. The service was poor. We had to pour our own wine, ask for butter and more water, etc. Altogether a disappointig experience.
We loved this place so much we went back ...
We loved this place so much we went back 2 days later since we are only in town a week. The staff is friendly and attentive. On our second visit our waiter remembered our previous wine selection. Every bite we had was amazingly delicious and authentically Italian. The spinach appetizer is unbelievable. Who knew you could make spinach like this little morsel of flavors and texture? We had 2 different eggplant entrees, the wild boar, and the lobster ziti over our 2 visits and all were superbly prepared and served. Desserts were also wonderful--canolli one night, gelato the other. If I didn't live 1000 miles away I would dine here weekly.

My husband and I have dined at Caffe Dell'Amore before and believe it is one of the best restaurants in Naples. We ordered the Burrata (Italian cheese made from mozzarella) and the Prosciutto Cups as appetizers. Both were outstanding. I ordered the Cacio e Pere (sacchettini pasta filled with gorgonzola and pear). I ordered this dish because it reminded me of a meal I had when we visited Florence, and I haven't seen it on restaurant menus often. It was spectacular. My husband ordered the Cioppino special which was equally delicious. For dessert we shared the stacked cannoli (worth every calorie) and cappuccino. Our server, Martin was attentive, friendly and helpful.

This was our second visit to this little gem, and it won't be our last. Food and service are top drawer. Wine list is interesting and includes all price points. It's one of the few restaurants in Naples I wouldn't worry about taking guests to. It's reliable and totally professional. I had Grouper Puttanesca which was fabulous. Reservations are a must.

We enjoyed our experience at Caffe Dell'Amore so much last week that we returned this week. Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed the food, wine and the service. Dominic is a most wonderful host and Martin is a great server. Each of our dishes, beginning with the spinach balls and cheese salad and then our entrees of boar, gnocchi and sea snapper were excellent. The gnocchi was the best that we had ever had. Also, the wine that was recommended was very good and also reasonably priced. We finished off with the chocolate dessert which was also terrific. Our favorite restaurant in Naples.

This is the place for pasta. All are homemade. The gnocchi were the lightest little pillows I ever had. The sauce was a San Marzano mix with fresh eggplant, basil and grated Romano cheese. Delightful!!!! The wine I chose was a medium priced Barolo. It was a fine accompaniment to the pasta. Back tracking, try the mussels/clams appetizer. Just don't eat all of the crostini or you'll be too full to enjoy your dinner.

I always rate but rarely write a review. this was a very disappointing evening. The restaurant was massively overcrowded and very noisy (not good vibe, just loud noise).Service was adequate but the food was not. Wine selection was adequate for the type of restaurant and prices seemed reasonable (150% over local). Appetizers and four different entrees were fair. It did not measure up to other similarly priced restaurants in Naples. Open Table ratings and reviews were unrealistically generous.

This restaurant is a small intimate place. The attention the staff gives you is great. They all work together to ensure your enjoying your evening. There is an extensive wine list. Our meal was excellent. My wife's favorite meal is always on the menu. We will return again soon.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Caffe Del Amore. The food was fantastic, the wine was very good and the Service Team (Martin) was outstanding. This is one of the best Italian restaurants that we have ever visited. We will be going back. It was also noted and appreciated that Dominic visited each of the tables to ensure that everything was excellent.
We had another fine meal here this past ...
We had another fine meal here this past Friday. My wife and I started with the Sformati, a really tasty dish, and both had the same entrée, the eggplant ravioli. The gravy, which was a San Marzano Tomato, was excellent and the ravioli were perfectly cooked. Desert was a piece of the cheesecake that was made with ricotta that was good, but my fav is still the flourless chocolate cake. Keep up the good work!
