Completely renovated and elegantly reconfigured to offer both indoor dining and al fresco enjoyment in the Palm Garden, the Amore by Andrea complex features event space (7,000 square feet inside), a glamorous bar for light bites, Happy Hour and live entertainment. Whether you’re dining out with friends and family or looking for the ideal place to host a grand social event, Amore by Andrea is the place.
The partners in Amore by Andrea are chef Andrea Bozzolo, a masterful and imaginative Italian chef and American businessman Howard Rooks, who made his highly successful career in real estate and development, but has also owned restaurants in two states. When Howard and Andrea met, they realized their individual talents could combine in the creation of a unique restaurant celebrating contemporary Italian cuisine, fine wines and incomparable ambience on Longboat Key. Their vision has been realized in Amore by Andrea.
Working with local farms, growers and fishermen, Andrea supports a local economy and makes sure everything is fresh. All pasta is hand-made in-house from special pasta imported from Naples, Italy.
Each dish is artfully crafted and lovingly prepared and so delicious. The atmosphere is inviting with a big fireplace, piano, white cloth tables. There is a patio where you can enjoy a garden setting and a setting sun.
The customers love Amore by Andrea:
“Great New Addition to LBK. This just opened in Nov 2014 and is a wonderful addition to LBK. A little hidden but worth looking for. Great food and service. After dinner we went to the piano bar for a perfect end to the evening. The owner gave us a tour of his “man cave” a beautiful wine room that would be perfect for a cocktail party or small event. We definitely have added this to a list of our favorites.” – fritzkath, Saint Louis, Missouri
