About Us


The partners in Amore by Andrea are chef Andrea Bozzolo, a masterful and imaginative Italian chef and American businessman Howard Rooks, who made his highly successful career in real estate and development, but has also owned restaurants in two states. When Howard and Andrea met, they realized their individual talents could combine in the creation of a unique restaurant celebrating contemporary Italian cuisine, fine wines and incomparable ambience on Longboat Key. Their vision has been realized in Amore by Andrea.
