Since 1992, That’s Amore has been serving Metropolitan Washington with the finest quality Southern Italian Cuisine.

All of our dishes are prepared to order, using only the finest FRESH ingredients. Every entrée is prepared “Solo” in individual portions or “Famiglia” in family portions enough for 4 or 5 to share.

The menu is extensive, and specializes in Traditional Italian Favorites such as Homemade Lasagna, Baked Stuffed Eggplant, and Chicken Parmigiano. That’s Amore also prides itself on its great variety of Fresh Fish and Seafood Dishes such as Zuppa di Pesce and Salmon Amore. For you meat lovers, That’s Amore offers the finest cuts of Beef and Veal. Try our NY Strip Steak Vesuvio, or Veal Caprese, and you wont be disappointed. Leave room for the finest homemade desserts. Don’t pass up the Torta Chocolate, or the Bread Pudding.

That’s Amore specializes in warm, friendly service in a very relaxed environment, serving dinner 7 days a week, lunch Monday through Saturday, and a Fantastic Brunch Buffet on Sundays (all locations except Shady Grove).

And don’t forget That’s Amore when planning your special event. Whether you have 2 or 200 guests, planning an event at That’s Amore is truly “entertaining made easier.” Full banquet menus and private rooms of every size are avialable for you to help make your next event memorable.

Our full menu is available for carryout, and we offer a full catering menu for your next office party as well. If you can’t come to us, we will bring our Great Italian Specialties to you!

Our Main Ingredient

Corporate Executive Chef, Gennaro Ferrigno, was born in 1939 in Naples Italy. He came from the streets of war torn Southern Italy as a “Scugnizzo” (street urchin) to becoming an award-winning Chicago chef before co-founding That’s Amore.

Gennaro (known to us as “Cheffy”) is a critic of “short-cuts” and chain restaurant automation, demanding that all dishes from That’s Amore’s kitchen be made from scratch. “Freshness and simplicity is the soul of authenticity,” is Gennaro’s credo to all those who apprentice with him. This uncompromising commitment to excellence has been the driving force behind That’s Amore.

Chef Gennaro still spends much of his time working in our restaurant’s kitchens. Because Gennaro created our entire menu, he takes a personal interest in ensuring our guests quality and value. The next time you are in That’s Amore, ask to say hi to Cheffy!
