  • "This is the second time I've been to Amarone and the experience was consistently excellent. The food is really out of this world. The space is great for a date in the front section, there is a back section as well that I have not yet seen which might be more for groups. I highly recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed!"

  • "Amarone is a real neighborhood gem! Authentic Italian cuisine, great Italian wines and a thoroghly experineced and charming owner-host Sandro ! This place is great for those looking for a real personal dining experience. Also a great spot for later evening dining too, close to all the music venues on Sunset. Highly recommend Amarone !!"

  • "We have been going to Amarone for years and it has never failed to be anything less than wonderful. It is the perfect mix of a neighborhood family restaurant and fine dining restaurant with a wonderful list of Italian wines."

  • "This is one of the best italian restaurants I have ever been to. My wife and I went on a Wednesday night, the waiter Gianfranco took such a good care of us, he was very attentive and professional. He assisted us with pairing wine and food dishes and had amazing recommendations. The atmosphere is pleasant and romantic. If you are on Sunset Blvd, YOU MUST CHECK THIS PLACE OUT! We highly recommend it and you won't be disappointed."

  • "Was visiting from DC. This was a great little place. Food was very nice and service was perfect. Highly recommend it. One suggestion: If driving, pay to park in lot behind for $10. Signs on side streets are not clear. Parking attendants are extremely aggressive and obnoxious."

  • "Amarone is like eating at a dear friends house who is a great cook. It is super cozy, warm, friendly and extremely welcoming. When it comes to true Italian food, I would say it is very good as opposed to outstanding. You will have a lovely meal but it won't be the very best Italian you have ever had."

  • "My husband and I went on Valentines day and they looked busier than normal. It was our first time so nothing to compare it to. They had a temporary menu and could not do meats and cheese which is the reason we choose the restaurant from the online menu. The starter pea soup was to die for but my main course came and it was wrong order. When they brought back the right think my husbands meal was good but cold. Mine was not great - we definitely want to try again when it is not valentines day - I think we caught then on a night off. We would recommend the restaurant as it's very romantic and intimate but we wish the food had been better."

  • "Service was severely lacking. Only 7 tables & the staff was overwhelmed. Was an hour to get our salads. We waited 15 more minutes and the waiter asked if we wanted our entrees. Caprese salad was over dressed (drenched really) and the tomato was rock hard. The pear/walnut salad had the dressing just poured on top - and too much of it. The walnuts were so hard i thought they would break my teeth. The pounded pork chop was crispy and plentiful. The salad on the side of it was overdressed too. The mushroom ravioli was good. It was very hot upstairs - like a sauna. Couldn't wait to get out of there! Won't be back."

  • "The scallop appetizer was very very good but did need some extra salt and pepper. The ahi tuna tartar was presented nicely but was totally bland."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "The Dover Sole didn't come from Dover, it was way overpriced for the area, the home baked bread was too doughy, on a positive note the recommended wine was very good, the pea soup was excellent, but I dont think I will return."

  • "Charming, cozy European-style romantic upstairs room that can get noisy when it's full, but is an unexpected oasis away from the stretch of Sunset around it. Delicious, always super fresh, Italian cuisine. Great wine list. Attentive, friendly service. A place we keep coming back to."

And the staff couldn't be better.We had the same waiter as last time we was there, which was 8 months ago, and he remembered us! He could even point out where we sat and which chairs we were in! Impressed!"

  • "Reviews were good so we ventured over here. Service was great and they were very nice and friendly. Food wasn't up to par. Too much oil in the dishes. Burrata was delicious but mozzarella not so great. Crete brûlée was delicious. Very expensive."

  • "We liked Amarone so much we returned with out of town guests. The greeting upon arrival is warm and sincere. The service was wonderful and the owner was happy to explain the wine list and offer suggestions. The food is excellent. I have had the pasta with seafood twice and my guests enjoyed the veal. In a world where everyone is fawning over Osteria M****, this is the real deal Italian, with delicious food, great portions and excellent service. Could not recommend it more highly."

  • "Outstanding experience from beginning to end. The owner himself greeted us and was very amenable to any special requests we had. Two of us had the seafood risotto while the other had the Osso Buco. We also had the salad and later desert with Moscato. The food was perfectly prepared and simply delicious. While you may not be too excited when you see the exterior, give it a chance. You will be glad you did. We are definitely going back the next time we hit LA. THUMBS WAY UP!!"

  • "First we was running late so I called Amarone and they said no problem...we'll wait for you, and it was 11:00 at night! They were waiting at the door when we arrived and the dining experience just got better from there! Food was outstanding, service was even better, owner Sandro and server Livio are awesome! I thanked the staff (including the kitchen staff) for staying late for us and I believe they were truly happy to do so! This is one of the best dining experiences I'v ever had!"
