Our almost weekly get together going to Amaro with friends
Loved the pizza- but especially the rigatoni, meatballs with spaghetti and the ravioli!

Amaro food was very good. Slow slow start to service. Had to finally call someone over to see if we could get service. Once we ordered drinks and dinner the service was good.
Pasta dishes were delicious. The person who ordered Salmon said it was only OK.
2 of us said we would go back. 2 said maybe.

Great Bothell restaurant. There was an issue with one of our entrees but the issue was resolved satisfactorily. Our overall experience was very good. My wife and I have been there before, and I am sure we will be back.

For the price, the service was sub par. We have been to this place twice. The first time wasn't bad. The second was not great. We hardly saw our server and had to continually try to get his attention for service. $165 for three meals and two drinks each. We will not be back.

Great food and friendly service. I asked to have my leftover salad in a "to go" box. When I went to eat it the next day, they had my salad on top of someone else's pasta. Unfortunately, I didn't see that until after my third bite of my leftovers. Yuck! Other than that, I highly recommend Amaro.

Amaro is a true Bothell gem — we feel so lucky to have it in our neighborhood. Food is incredible (the lasagna is the best you will ever have!) and the wine selection is vast and tasty. Our waiter recommended a rose brut to sip on and a fantastic Malbec to pair with my cannelloni. This is by far our favorite Italian restaurant.

One of my favorite places. Sherman was our waiter, patient, knowledgeable, great service. The food was delicious, I had the gorgonzola salad and the risotto cakes. My friend had the caprice salad. We sat outside in the shade at 6pm. Wonderful time

During this unusual times, I will have to tip my hat off to Amaro and their staff. The restaurant is safe and social distancing is in place. Now for the best part. The food was exceptional. I had the steak and my husband had the lamb chop. Both dishes were amazing. The staff was fantastic and very friendly. Overall we had a great time.
