Whether you crave great food surrounded by laughter and stories from family and friends or a romantic meal for two near the window to gaze at the sparkling lights of Seattle, you will see why That’s Amore has been a favorite local spot since 1992. Since we bought the restaurant Morein February of 2001 we do our best every day to promise you a meal and an experience you’ll not just enjoy, but one you’ll want to share with others ~ more than once. We especially want to thank our many local customers who have made That’s Amore their second home and have become our friends. You may have tasted Paul's cooking at Seattle's Columbia Tower Club, Arnie's Seafood Restaurant, or the Courtyard Bistro. His experience in these fine restaurants, combined with his training at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, is the key to his flavorful dishes. Join us at That's Amore Italian Restaurant and Bistro to enjoy the pure fresh flavors of all of the regions of Italy in a casual and cozy setting with a breathtaking, unique view of Seattle. This "hidden gem" (Seattle Magazine) just 10 minutes from downtown, is the place where locals bring visiting friends and family to have a great meal and watch the sun set beyond the city, Elliott Bay and on clear nights, the Olympic Mountain Range. You'll savor reasonably priced classic Italian food with modern twists and feel right at home with servers and kitchen staff that genuinely get to know you. A great stop before or after a Seahawks, Mariners or Huskies game; we're less than 15 minutes away from all three stadiums. See how our Wild Boar Ragu is prepared by our Sous Chef Scott. This is a 1,000-year-old family recipe from the Tuscany region of Italy! Patio Dining & View Dining • Chef owned since 2001 Voted One of Seattles Top 10! Sincerely, Chef/Owner (usually in the Kitchen) Paul McMillion & Dawn McMillion, your hosts.

Don't get me wrong, the food was well done, and the tiramisu was excellent, but what truly makes this place is the attention to detail. My S.O. brought me here for a birthday dinner.
