Meet our Team
CHEF DE CUISINE
Chef Pasquale learned to cook in his hometown of Torre del Greco, Naples, on Italy’s beautiful Amalfi coast. He honed his skills preparing traditional Italian meals for family members before eventually bringing his talents stateside. His famous recipes, attention to detail, and commitment to using only the freshest seasonal and house-made ingredients have earned him a loyal following throughout the Rochester area, where he’s headed up the kitchen at several acclaimed restaurants. We’re excited to have Pasquale leading the way at Amore, bringing you the best Italian cuisine in town.
For more than 20 years Nicole Wilson has always had an equal love for two things: Wegmans and the restaurant industry. Managing Amore has allowed her to combine these two passions and offer guests incredible customer service at the East Ave. restaurant.
“When you visit Amore, you’re really visiting our home,” said Wilson. “We’re so proud to be able to create that warm, welcoming environment – and hopefully a bit of an escape from everyday life.”
She aims to make sure guests feel important and that everyone who steps inside the restaurant has an excellent experience. Wilson invites everyone to say hi and introduce yourself next time you visit Amore!
Assistant Restaurant Manager, Restaurant Manager Trainee
Allie Carey, a Rochester native, jumped at the chance to join the Amore team and has since been bitten by the hospitality bug. With more than 18 years of experience at Wegmans, she thrives on the fast pace the restaurant offers and is grateful for the opportunity to build lasting relationships with both regulars and new guests.
“I want our guests to have a welcoming, enjoyable, relaxing time where the can focus on being with family and friends – we’ll take care of the rest,” said Carey.
She encourages everyone to check out the many wine dinners, Eat Drink Learn classes and other special events Amore offers to expand your culinary knowledge and try something new.
