POINTS OF INTEREST
Although the name may sound as Italian as amore, this restaurant's menu is more eclectic than Italian. It has a classy, contemporary, white-dominated decor in a dreamy, marina setting. Strolling musicians perpetuate the mood, the moored yachts provide people-watching. Astounding appetizers are found under the Asian section, like the sweet plantain roll or the Peperoni roll. Pasta dishes and risottos with rock shrimp or porcini taste authentic, and the more inventive items such as house-made pear-and-goat-cheese ravioli with pine nuts are delectable. Pulpo (octopus) with fava beans stewed in limoncello vinaigrette is highly recommended. You can also opt for stylishly simple charcoal-grilled steaks (sauce or no), burgers, gourmet wood-oven pizzas, sandwiches, or even sushi and sashimi. Desserts are worthy here. There have been some complaints that food quality is not what it once was.
