Owner/Executive Chef Alfredo Fischioni of "That’s Amore" in Collingswood has announced 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.
