AMATO'S Franchise

Italian Restaurant

In 1972, an Italian immigrant named Dominic Reali bought the Amato’s business after working at the original Portland shop for seven years. Dominic made his mark early, introducing his own blend of ingredients to the classic Real Italian Sandwich. You can say "grazie" to Dominic for the Greek olives, a zestier pickle and a new oil recipe on your sandwich. You can also thank him for turning Amato’s into a growing franchise that can now be enjoyed across state lines!

We’re a sandwich shop that proudly serves up authentic Italian eats -- just the way Giovanni did -- to your neighbors, best friends, co-workers, parents, grandparents, cousin Vinny, and you!

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
