My friend and I had not been here in a very long time, but this restaurant never disappoints!

We had 3 courses and each was perfecto!

The burrata & prosciutto was a very generous portion, definitely one to share.

The sausage rigatoni may be better than the one I had in Italy :).

We also split the Branzino and enjoyed several glasses of Italian wines, suggested by our server to pair with each course.

All in all, the back patio setup was well done for either a friendly dinner or even a date.

This is our favorite restaurant. Amarone is back open with a safe and beautiful new outdoor setup and it is just as lovely as it's always been. Sandro and Lilly are wonderful hosts and the authentic Italian menu is delicious and heartwarming.

This was our first time at Amarone Kitchen & Wine and it certainly won't be our last! We were welcomed warmly by the owner / maitre d and seated in the newly opened rear outside dining area.

The restaurant has done a really fantastic job of creating a charming & private dining area with raised walls and elegant lighting. A perfect setting for West LA outdoor dining in the age of COVID-19 restrictions.

All of our dishes were prepared perfectly and delicious including my beef carpaccio followed by the tagliatelle alla bolognese. Wines by the glass are very reasonable, I went with the Super Tuscan.

We have always loved Amarone. The owners / chef's make all the pasta by hand and it is delicious. The service is very personal and you feel almost part of the family. Its a small place but its very charming and romantic, quiet but still has great energy. The risotto with truffles was out of this world. I had the pasta special and as always it was wonderful. Their wine selection is significant so get a bottle. But their wine by the glass is also excellent. Let the staff help you pick your meal and wine. You'll be glad you did.

MY FAVORITE. The opposite of most restaurants on the Sunset Strip. Wonderful food, warm and charming atmosphere, amazing service...without the scene. If you want fantastic Italian food without the fuss in a beautiful and friendly atmosphere, look no further.

Sandro and his wife Lily are the reason that we go! It’s not like going out for dinner, but more like having dinner with friends! The food is incredible, wine selection is very good, atmosphere is unique and the time there is special!

Truly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and that includes places in Italy, New York, San Francisco!

Amarone Kitchen never disappoints. Although located on a sterile section of the Sunset Strip, the restaurant is warm and cozy. The Northern Italian food adheres to the best traditions of Mediterranean cuisine. Meats, fishes and pastas are all first rate. Fore a "neighborhood gem" Amarone is a true winner. Impeccable and attentive service. We'll be back.

Who would expect that a small Italian restaurant on Sunset Boulevard would turn out to the jewel of the city. Our daughter lives nearby and the restaurant had good reviews, so we decided to try it. From the moment we arrived, we felt like we were back in our favorite local restaurant anywhere in Italy. Alessandro, the owner and Maitre'D, is gracious and knowledgeable. We tried many more dishes than we needed to because each was prepared perfectly.
Appetizers included Swordfish carpaccio, Buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto, and beef carpaccio. Each was perfect. As an intermezzo, we had Risotto with truffles. I make a great risotto but this was perfectly prepared. Entrees were veal milanese and pork milanese. Each was cooked to perfection.
The wine list is excellent and we drank several bottles from the early 2000's at reasonable prices.
When you arrive, there is a small room in the front with several small tables. We chose to sit upstairs in the intimate dining room with a beautiful view of West Hollywood.
If you get the chance, this is a meal you will be talking about with love for a long time.

The small and quaint atmosphere only adds to the personal home style and ambiance one wants in an authentic Italian restaurant. The owner waited on us, recommended the best dishes, and is from Italy. His staff speaks Italian and very friendly. The comfortable setting, delectable food and personal friendly service makes for a very enjoyable dining pleasure.

Picked this spot based on location and on-line reviews. Loved it based on the staff and the food. The owner/manager personally prepared an appetizer for us and made great recommendations on entrees. Our waiter was personable and attentive, even with a celebrity and his entourage sitting next to us commoners! Didn’t have time for dessert but everything else was fantastic.

We had a fabulous meal at Amarone last week. It reminded of us of a quaint Italian restaurant in Italy. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The owner was friendly and thoughtful about helping us decide about which wine and dishes to try. I recommend the prosciutto and burrata appetizer along with the pasta bolognese. Fresh pasta with a simple but incredibly delicious sauce. We will definitely come back!
