Amore reopens in Rochester with new look



Rochester, New York — After being closed for 19 months during the pandemic, Wegmans Amore Italian Restaurant & Lounge is back open.

Along with a whole new look and feel, diners are getting a taste of a new menu.

“This menu is, I want to say it’s 80 to 90% all-new dishes,” Amore head chef Pasquale Sorrentino said. “It’s totally different. It’s a new restaurant.”

Sorrentino serves cuisine from Italy’s Amalfi Coast where he grew up and learned to cook.

Coast considers this is a dream job and is thrilled to once again welcome guests.

“I think my job is come from my heart,” he said. “I really love what I do for work. And it doesn’t matter how many hours or how hard it is, I love it and everything we do, I do, here with my team. It’s for our guests.”

Friday evening with more than 100 reservations Amore opened its doors to business.
