For £39 you get an Amore combo starter, a heart-shaped pizza, a pasta, two desserts and a bottle of wine – fab!
All you have to do is get the music ready and you are sorted. 🌹
Here’s the menu for your choices:-
We sampled this deal during the week and it arrived bang on time and even in the packaging, it looked good. ❤️
So what did we get…
The Amore Combo to start is a mix of deep-fried breaded mushrooms, deep-fried breaded mozzarella sticks and stuffed jalapeño peppers served with sweet chilli sauce and garlic mayonnaise. All snacky and tasty and easy to re-heat as the 3 courses are very filling. Plus points for the very garlicky mayo, which we would pick over the chilli sauce with Italian cuisine, though it’s good to have a choice if you’re not a big garlic fan.
Our first main was a pizza – Pizza Margherita with fresh basil.🌿
We used to think that it was always better to go with extra toppings on pizza but after visiting Naples a few years ago we realised that many, perhaps even most pizza restaurants there keep it simple. Why complicate things when tomato, cheese and basil work so well? Note that if you order this for Valentine’s Day it will arrive heart-shaped! ❤️
Our second main was Penne del femio – Italian sausage sautéed in olive oil, onion, garlic, chilli, white wine and ragu. Listed as a house special we were keen to try this and it was really spicy. Obviously, it had a tasty aroma too as our cat Fred appeared on the scene. We gave him a few pieces of sausage, which we happily devoured despite the heat!
Our chosen desserts were the classic Italian Tiramisu and a banoffee cheesecake. Both sweet and creamy and each coming with a little tub of vanilla ice cream.
We can’t forget the vino! We chose rose from a choice or red, white or rose wine, which was A Mano Primitivo 2019, it scores 3.7 out of 5 on Vivino. A crisp and light wine with strawberry and lemon flavours, perfect for the various types of dishes we had.
