The food was excellent. The pizzas are nice portions and quite tasty. The tagliatelle was hearty and the pasta was homemade. The waiter was really nice and enthusiastic. We had never eaten there before, so I'm not sure if it's always this busy. We had to wait 15 minutes for our 7:30 reservation and then were seated next to a large group of pre-prom? Teenage girls. Not the best. But the live music coming from the bar was great! We would try it again when in town as the food we delicious.

The pizza was excellent; the thin crust cooked in wood-fired ovens produced a perfect consistency and a delightful flavor. The pasta dish we ordered (gnocchi) was fine, but nothing great. So we recommend going for the pizza and the wine.

Especially great pizza and
Especially great pizza and seafood! Meatballs are also outstanding but my absolute favorite menu item is the Kantak Chop salad. Amaro's is great for any occasion from a romantic dinner for two to a family-style dinner with kids in tow.

Nice surprise in the neighborhood
We enjoyed a nice family meal. Food was tasty. Generous portion size (especially for the desserts.) Our server was engaging and helpful. Fun night for all. Will definitely go back.

Good local resto
We wanted to like Amaro because it is less than 15 min from our home. The friendly server attended to all of our needs quite efficiently and our meal was very good. We started with the fried calamari and spinach salad which the server recommended sharing (it was quite generous) although the squid was a little crisper than i like. We both had the halibut with a white bean and tomato succotash, which was excellent. The fish was fresh and perfectly cooked and the beans were a tasty and unusual accompaniment. I should also mention that the bread was fresh and crusty and it was served with some nice olive oil.
The value was good and we would not hesitate to return.

The food is delicious and different. It has all the Italian favorites but with a twist. The Kantuk salad is a Cobb, prepared table side with totally unexpected ingredients and is delicious. The bruschetta are crispy garlicky wedges topped with ripe, sweet tomato chunks. We took friends to celebrate our 44 anniversary and the staff could not have been more accommodating. They prepared our favorite drink to our specifications and as well as adding to their delicious vanilla gelato the items we asked for. A gem of a restaurant. It is not a chain so there are no copies!

Service, food, ambiance, live music
The service was excellent. Had the freshly-made pasta with clams in white wine sauce - excellent! Sea bass was also excellent as was the bread. Good wine list. Happy to discover they have live music! Will be back.

Thank you for your comments
Thank you to the Open Table members who rated this restaurant. I'm from Texas and was looking for something near the MIM before a concert. Your reviews sent me to this restaurant.

It is so nice to have a restaurant of this caliber in the Northeast Valley. Food is delicious. Happy hour specials are excellent. People are friendly, and love the wine list!

First dinner I've had here under the new owners and it was as good as I remember. My friend and I split the kale house salad which was awesome and I had the pork chop and loved it. She had the shrimp scampi and loved it as well. Dan Emrey was playing who I love and we had a nice time. Thanks
