A word from Amarone
Amarone’s homey indoor-outdoor trattoria on the edge of the theater district on 9th Avenue between 47th and 48th offers amazing eats that reflect the owners’ Italian background. Amarone stands out as one of New York’s best values in Hell’s Kitchen and surpasses even the highest expectations. Amarone has taken the expression “make your customers feel at home” to the next level. Sometimes it is hard to leave.

    The food is delicious and they made two off menu dishes to accommodate finicky kids. The table was less then ideal but it was a crowded Sat night and we were seated immediately.

    I just completed my 4th trip to NYC and also had my 4th visit to Amarone. It's my favorite Italian restaurant. Excellent food, wine, dessert and the ambiance is amazing. We met the owner on this past trip and he was so nice and appreciative of our business. Will make certain to go here each time I'm back in NYC and highly recommend to anyone traveling there.

    This small Italian restaurant is convenient to theater, has an efficient and lovely staff and the dishes were plentiful and well prepared. My dining partner and I each had three appetizers: five of them were perfect. The octopus carpaccio special had been frozen, remained partially frozen, and had an unappealing texture. Otherwise, all was delicious. The restaurant accommodated conversation, and was very pleasant.

    We went here because we were going to the Theater. I usually don't expect much from places around Broadway but this had good reviews. It was therefore a great disappointment. The sales were very tired and overpriced .The pasta pomodoro tasted like pasta in Campbell's tomato soup. The service was extremely slow (but it was pre-theater) they packed the tables in about as tight as I've ever seen, (yes it was pre-theater) and the noise was just over the top nerve wracking. So all in all I would not recommend this place unless you were desperate for somewhere to go before a play.

    Amarone's nails it with the fantastic wine list and the authentic italian menu with amazing, fresh specials! The service makes you feel like family; between Andrea's recommendations to Tony's hospitality and everyone in between working together, it's an unbeatable combination. If you want an amazing, authentic italian experience, Amarone's is the place!

  • not a good choice before theater
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 9/27/2014
    It sounded good but was quite disappointing. We had reservations at 6:00 for a part of 4. Although the restaurant was empty, we were told that we had to wait for another table to clear and were asked to sit at the bar where we were ignored for 10 minute before the bar tender deigned to ask us if we wanted anything. We were finally seated 20 minutes late. Three food could have saved the day, but it was quite pedestrian and not work reviewing. Further, having made us wait for our table they couldn't seem to be more anxious to get us out, bringing out main courses to the table before we had finished out first course. There are a lot of choices in the that district. This will not be on our list.

    The pasta entree was smaller than a child's portion in most restaurants. The chicken in the Chicken Scarpariello was not tender. Entrees were not even served with a salad. Not good value for the money. The taste of the food was nothing outstanding. Definitely would not go there again.

I had chicken amarone was had a tkn of mushrooms & sun dried tomatoes. Accompanied vegetable mix were perfect al dente. Portions were generous. Food was good not outstanding. Quite noisy for pre theater dinner.

    The interior of this restaurant was cozy with brick walls and great decorations. The service was excellent and a basket of fresh bread was immediately brought to the table. The fettucini portofino was loaded with fresh shrimp and scallops in a tomato based sauce. Absolutely delicious. The pear salad with peccorino cheese was wonderful as was the linguine putanesca. All the food is freshly prepared and arrives piping hot at the table. There are no negatives about this restaurant just a lot of atmosphere and great Italian food.

    Fantastic Italian restaurant outside Little Italy near Times Square. Wow what a treat time after time! Every time we pop in NYC we always return to the Amarone for at least twice a year for the past 7 years. The Seafood black ink pasta is a must. With prawns, clams, mussels, octopus, squid and half a lobster!! To be enjoyed seating outside living the NY live scene.

    Ristorante Amarone is in the heart of the Manhattan (NY) theater district on 9th Ave between 47th and 48th Streets. If your destination is the theater a word to the waiter will ensure a timely departure and arrival. We arrived on time for a 6:30 reservation and were on our way by 7:35. Service is crisp and friendly; you'll be greeted by owner/manager "Tony" who oversees the dining room as if you were in his home. Fish,meat and pasta dishes are all worthy of a try. The wine list is extensive and priced from easily accessible to high.

    We wanted a restaurant for dinner after the theater. We made a reservation on Open Table for 11:30 pm. On the day of our reservation we got a call saying the kitchen closed at 11:30 pm and if we didn't get there before that we couldn't eat. We did get there in time. The restaurant was drab. When my order came it wasn't at all what I expected. The food was less than average. Nothing outstanding. The waiter was very nice and kept my water glass filled but overall this was a very disappointing restaurant.
