Time Out says
This Prospect Heights pizza and pasta joint has a dedicated following among the neighborhood’s residents. The menu reads like any typical old-school Italian restaurant, but the focus on seasonal ingredients sets Amorina apart. The special “Will to Live” pizza changes nightly—one day, it could be made with fresh ramp pesto and mozzarella, and the next, it could be a meaty sausage pie. Classics like the margherita ($12) and tricolore ($15) pizzas make an appearance, as do more inventive options like the gorgonzola e frutta, with wine-soaked figs, caramelized pears and a drizzle of honey. If you want something other than a slice, there’s plenty of pasta to choose from—think rigatoni with cremini and porcini mushrooms ($15.50), baked ziti with smoked mozzarella, stewed tomatoes and bechamel sauce ($15) and eggplant parmigiana ($15). The restaurant serves up all kinds of traditional sweets for dessert, like ricotta cheesecake with orange and a flourless chocolate cake with caramel (both $7).
Serving Classic dishes while always keeping it fresh, imaginative and unpredictable! Every week we feature special soups, appetizers, salads, pasta and pizzas, all made from seasonal ingredients from our local farm friends. Our Special Pizza is so delicious, it's been said that it will give you the, "Will to Live"!
Anything you order will pair perfectly with a Wine or Beer from our Seasonal list. We use local and organic ingredients including our flour, cheese and sauces! Our pizza is made using a sourdough starter born right here at Amorina, giving our pizza its unique taste and quality not found anywhere else.
