Small menu which is good. They focus on product. Ordered two pasta dishes and the red sauce was not the same on either, meaning they specialize in each offering and don't use a cookie cutter tomato sauce for all dishes. Our dinner was VERY Good

We are frequent visitors because the food is that good, the service is that good, and the location is perfect for us.

Amaro doesn't skimp. Our pre-meal salads were nearly a meal themselves. Every item on the menu, that we've had, has been good.

With returning after such a long period of time, due to COVID-19, the staff, in their masks, made it feel natural and comfortable.

Highly recommended.

It was their first night for inside dining. They did a good job of following the guidelines. Some are advocating limiting table service to one server; they had three. The menu selections were sufficient and the price range was fine. The lasagna and the cannelloni were very good, but the very large serving of the lasagna had too much cheese and finding the meatballs was a challenge. The flavor, however, was fantastic. Parking continues to be a challenge in the evolving neighborhood.

We had an underwhelming meal a couple nights ago at Amaro. We enjoyed 3 appetizers and 2 mains. Service was friendly and attentive. The meal, however, was basically bland. We added salt to all the dishes in an effort to enhance flavor. The food wasn’t bad, it was simply lacking adequate flavor. They need to kick things up a little bit.

My friend and I met for dinner on a recommendation from my sis in law. Her Mom just passed away and she just needed a night out. Zach was our waiter and he was fabulous. Great wine, dinner, dessert and amaro! He gave us a good lesson so of course we had to try it! We stayed a long time. Thank you!

Parking in downtown Bothell is a nightmare. The restaurant is great, but allow an extra 15mins to find and/or walk from wherever you park.

The food was great and our waitress was friendly and kept us supplied with drinks and the table was cleared frequently so we didn't have our dirty plates in front of us. A great time was had by all.

Spaghetti alla carbonara very bland. Lasagna looked very tomatoe and with clumps of ricotta. Pizza was all right.

We ordered Calimari that was tough and the sauce was too spicy for our taste. The main courses were much better and the wine we selected was excellent.

I love this restaurant and had a great birthday dinner on the 19th! Do observe the signs in the garage. My daughter parked on the bank side without realizing it and was ticketed by the parking company.

Very nice service. The food is always good. The noise level is just too much. We couldn’t talk to each other over the din.
Table covers would help. So would carpet. I know that’s not new cool. I wouldn’t call the noise “energetic,” it is just ridiculously loud.

Amaro is very lively even on a Thursday! Staff is very friendly and was also so prompt. Drinks were fantastic - can’t go won’t with an Aperol spritz! We came here for dinner and our pastas were enjoyable but noticed they were definitely heavy on the sauce, otherwise the flavoring was good. This restaurant is good for HH too.
