Update: Opening has been pushed back until at least July due to construction.
Closed since 2017, fans of Italian restaurant That’s Amore in Collingswood have reason to be excited. Owner/Executive Chef Alfredo Fischioni has emerged announcing he will be opening a sister restaurant called Amore Mio in Merchantville. The location at 177 S Centre Street was most recently occupied by Ms. Nancy’s Place. Chef Nancy Miller left Merchantville to open a new restaurant in Burlington.
Aiming for a May opening, Fischioni promises the same great Italian dishes albeit in a space even smaller than his Collingswood location. It will be interesting to see what kind of upgrades will be done to accommodate guests. If I recall correctly, it only seated about 20 people in tight quarters.
Either way, this is exciting news for Merchantville. I’m very much hoping they’ll have the wonderful housemade gnocchi on the menu. Yum!
