We seat on a walk-in basis. We only accept reservations for private parties of 12 or more and for Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day and New Year’s Eve. All other seating is first come-first served. Most nights, except Saturdays, we have little or no wait for a table in the dining room. On Saturdays we typically start to run a wait around 6/6:30, which usually begins with around 30 minutes and peaks around 7/8:00 with an average wait of an hour.  Why don’t we take reservations? …We like to keep things simple. You don’t have to plan a month in advance and we don’t have to block out tables. Truth is (other than Saturdays) on most nights you can be seated rather quickly. Just come when you’d like to. If there is a wait when you come in you can enjoy cocktails and appetizers in our lounge. Come on…If you are with someone special, or a few good friends, the time passes too quickly anyway!  Relax, have a drink, and ENJOY. “That’s Amore!”
