    Lovely little restaurant on 9th Avenue not far off restaurant row. The pasta dishes were delicious and the appetizer salads are ample, but maybe not enough to share. The service was very good and their prices are reasonable for the area. I would recommend it when seeing a broadway show.

    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.

    Our reservation was for 645 pm on Saturday night. We did not have theater to attend so we had to wait a bit. We sat at the bar they, gave us a complimentary plate of appetizers. Once seated the service and meal were very good, Our pasta dishes were wonderful. the veal was flavorful and not tough. I would definitely go back but after 715pm when it is not so crowded

    Took a friend out for her 25th birthday before seeing a show. Amarone was the perfect choice! The food is simply delicious, the portions are perfect and the wine selection is divine. It was the perfect spot for an early dinner to celebrate and catch up with a good friend. The waiters are ready to fill your drinks the minute your cup gets low, and yet, they give you your space and aren't kicking you out as soon they clear your table. It's a great hidden gem!

    I lived in Rome for four years. Hands down this is the most authentic experience of Italian dining I have had this side of the Atlantic. Kudos to Antonio, the owner, as well as Leonardo, Andrea and the rest of the wait staff who do an incredible job. It is 110% worth the drive to Manhattan from the Pocono Mountains for me!

    Service was fine - pleasant and efficient. Appetizer portions were much larger than waiter described, which is a shame since they were so bland and misconceived. Veal piccata was quite good. Our expectations weren't high, based on reviews, but we had a theater date in the neighborhood and this seemed the least bad nearby alternative. No reason to go back.

    We visited this restaurant on a recommendation of a server at another restaurant and it is fantastic. It is a cozy little spot on 9th Avenue. It would be difficult to rate any of our choices as the 'best' as they were all outstanding. Select choices of our foursome were: a pear salad, a mozzarella salad-a restaurant specialty, linguini con vongole, home-made ravioli - so very good, and a veal selection. All the food was superior. Our server Andrea was very helpful, personable and fun. If you are looking for an authentic Italian restaurant like you would find on a little side street in Italy this is it. A little difficult to find but well worth it. It will become one of our 'must' visit restaurants on our next visit to NYC.

    We had high expectations based on tripadvisor reviews. The calamari was very good, the Caesar salad was ordinary, pasta was delicious, Tiramisu delicious. However the service was extremely slow. It was a busy Sunday night, World Cup soccer was on, etc. Also do not go unless you want to yell over all the noise. Very loud. Overall mediocre.

    We've been to Amarone several times pre-theater; because it's a little off the beaten path, it doesn't tend to be as crowded as those closer to Times Square. Food is good, service decent, nice atmosphere and just an extra block from many of the Broadway theaters. It's a nice, dependable place but have always felt it could kick it up a notch or two.

    This was probably our fifth or sixth visit to Amarone over the past three years. We live in Virginia Beach and visit New York City about three times a year. We usually try some new restaurants with each visit, but we keep coming back to our favorites, of which Amarone is one. The best part of our experience is Renald, our waiter - he always takes good care of us, with a great sense of humor, and makes us feel special.

    Went with my kids - mistake. Not kid-friendly. I should've read up on that part. Good for pre-theater dinner. Loud and extremely crowded. Toilets were very clean. Took a long time for food to arrive. Expensive. And hostess was wearing totally inappropriate attire. Dress was way too short and tight. Might work for a dance club, but not a neighborhood restaurant. Food was very good, though. We won't be back. Going to Pietrasanta across the street. More space and less expensive, and great food.

    My wife and I had a good, but not great, dinner at Amarone. The weather was beautiful so we were lucky to get a table in their sidewalk cafe area. Service was welcoming, attentive and not intrusive. I ordered a duck special, my wife ordered pasta with shrimp and we had a Caesar salad and Calamari app. Neither one of us were unhappy with our food, but it wasn't memorable, either. Prices were reasonable for the area, a good choice for pre-theater. At the next table a couple had very little time before their show, they ordered soup and were in and out in less than 1/2 hour, a good choice when pressed for time.

    We stopped in and were fortunately able to be seated despite the restaurant being busy on a Friday evening. We started with the Fried Calamari and shared the Fava Bean Salad which were both excellent. Salad was unique and delicious. Then we had entrees of Orecchiette, Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Chop, and unfortunately cannot recall the last meal. But everyone enjoyed their meals thoroughly. We were celebrating a birthday and they put together a beautiful plate of mixed desserts and served that along with Grappa and Moscato. The owner was sweet and the servers were professional and attentive. They made the night special and everything was delicious.

    Ate at Amarone before theatre last week; and most of the food was good---BUT, when the swordfish or tuna we wanted and ordered, we were offered instead the monkfish special after 15 minutes when the waiter returned and said our choice was sold out!!! This special was not only some of the toughest, and 'oldest', stale fish we had ever eaten, but it was also at least $8---$10 more than the rest of the menu. This was not told to us, as it was a special As we had to get to theatre, they were running quite late anyway, so we had to keep the fish, but could hardly eat it!!! Too bad, as we will NOT return

    gathered here for a small family reunion , eight of us enjoyed a very pleasant setting, good service , food and wine, everyone seemed to enjoy their meal, the only disappointment was the sampler antipasto plate , thought it was going to be a large plate to share and was served as individual tasting plates, therefore, you couldn't choose to eat just what you preferred, would recommend choosing specific appetizers for a Manhattan eatery the prices were very reasonable for the good quality of food and service would recommend it to friends and would definitely consider returning if I am in the area major plus was they did not rush us through our meal and we could enjoy our company

    Trying to understand why this place got rave reviews. I'm a frequent diner and go into New York a lot. Possibly people are getting use to mediocre. My daughter and I ordered the same cocktails to start. Hers was so sweet it tasted like cotton candy. Mine was tart. For 13 dollars a drink, I expect almost perfection. Her salad was bland..some lettuce with mushrooms thrown in, mine at least was acceptable. I felt rushed with the waiter asking immediately after giving the specials, "are you ready?". Wine by the glass was listed with the name of the wine, no explanation of where it came from, or what year. When I asked, the waiter then hesitated before answering, "Italy". Coffee bitter. Coffee is one thing a restaurant must do right!

    We returned to amarone to introduce Friends to the great experience we had two years ago. The food was much more average and the service was not just rushed (party of six out in an hour) but the staff didn't listen to what we were asking - brought red when we wanted white wine, and tried to pitch only specific wines that were more expensive. VERY disappointed.

    They didn't have my reservation, despite my confirmation, which, thankfully, I had with me. They crammed us into a two-fer table when we were three. We did finally get them to move us to a larger table. We waited a very long time to be served although we had told them we were headed to the theatre and had allowed 1:45 for dinner. The lettuce in my salad had brown edges. My ravioli was OUTSTANDING, but my friends' food was just okay. We chose it because of proximity to a theatre we were attending, but probably would not return. I have to reiterate, in all honesty, that the ravioli stuffed with ricotta and spinach was exceptional, however.

    There aren't many places in NYC that can make you feel truly at home with every visit but Amarone definitely can! From the friendly staff to the DELICIOUS, fresh made pastas and perfectly cooked steaks and seafood - you cant go wrong at Amarone. Full of repeat customers and loyal locals - with a cute little patio for dining out front and an intimate but friendly setting indoors - make a reservation and take advantage of the amazing experience ahead!
