    No disappointments here! Outdoor seating is lovely, we choose the bar seating as it was a bit cooler. Service was amazing. Try the sautéed Calamari as an appetizer, the marinara sauce with the capers is outstanding.

    We decided to have dinner earlier than most people. Food was delicious and service attentive. The noise level was very high though which limited our conversation . This was a return visit to dining there and may wait awhile before returning to this "favorite restaurant"

    We’ve always loved Amaro Bistro. Last night, my husband and I dined with his parents. We had a good experience. Our server, Andre was attentive and kind. I ordered Carbonara. Normally, it’s pretty good here but for some reason last night, the pancetta was not as cooked as I would prefer. It was a bit chewy. The pasta itself was amazing though! My husband had Cannelloni but he wasn’t a huge fan of it. The chicken confit was a bit bland. The rest of the table seemed to enjoy their meals. Thank you, Amaro Bistro for a friendly dining experience. We will definitely come back in the near future.

    Made a reservation to attend after our daughter’s graduation at Pop Keeney Stadium. We have been to Amaro many times and like all the others, our visit was great. My daughter’s were in the mood to celebrate. The bar tender made them a surprise mocktail that was delicious. Great food every time and attention was paid to each detail. Thanks
