Gabriel and Kimberly Amador are the owners of Amore.
“The idea was born of a chance meeting in 1999, between a Navy girl from Kansas and a guy from Seattle at a party on Pinetamare Beach in Naples, Italy,” Gabriel explains. “As we fell in love, married, and started our family, Kimberly and I realized the romance and passion of Naples had to play a part in our dream of building something together as a family. Amore Neapolitan Pizzeria is a combination of many things we love: a hand-made, healthier style of pizza, Naples, family and our pride in all things local.”
The Amadors are trained, certiﬁed and mentored by Roberto Caporuscio, Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani (APN) President and star chef at both of his establishments: Keste Pizza & Vino, and Don Antonio by Starita, respectively rated number 1 and 2 best NYC pizzerias by Zagats. APN certiﬁcation is the highest certiﬁcation for pizza chefs in Italy, and can only be obtained in Naples, Italy or New York City.
What makes the pizza authentic is more than Gabriel and Kimberly’s training. It has to do with the ingredients, too. In addition to sourcing our ﬂour and canned tomatoes from Italy, we make our own mozzarella cheese, sauce, pizza dough and bread in-house.
