I went looking for “Love”

I found it at Corona 179 in Restaurante Amore.

This small, cozy Italian bistro stole my heart on my first visit.  Using a discount coupon from Cupocity for the Pasta Festival, I went in search of a new taste treat for lunch.

It wasn’t until about a year ago that I would consider ordering spaghetti.  After all, who doesn’t have 7-10 minutes to boil your own?  Less if it was fresh pasta.  Warm up a can or jar of sauce and sprinkle with parmesan.  Ta da!  I was about to learn a lesson in how wrong I can be.


But being indecisive, I resorted to the Spaghetti Bolognese.  It was the absolute best and I couldn’t figure out why.

Complimentary bread with a fresh olive tapenade arrived to enjoy while they prepared my caesar salad.  It, too, had a fresh twist.  The romaine leaves were full length as in the original invention by Cesare Cardini in Tijuana.

Traditional tiramisu for dessert and I was daydreaming of a trip back to Italy.

I rushed home to print out another coupon to give the place a second run.  Maybe I was just hungry.

During my initial visit, I was the sole patron and spent a pleasant stay chatting with the owner, Eduardo.  Reservations might be a good idea for dinner.  All 25 seats were full when I returned.

I was so tempted for spaghetti again but ordered Fusilli Alfredo.  Another treat!


Service was attentive, fresh flowers on the tables and soft music in the background made for a very enjoyable experience.  The surprise Kahlua and cream at the end of my meal was appreciated as well.

Try it.  You’ll like it!
