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.

I just love Amazon!!! It's cozy, warm and welcoming! The food is delicious and there is a well-priced wine
list. This is a "special occasion" restaurant, also great for dates.

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.

Small but diverse dining menu, beautiful salads, hand made pasta, and a really nice Italian wine list. Host/owner made it a point to get to know the diners and to discuss menu items and wine pairings. Intimate scale, would definitely visit again.

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!

We had a wonderful dinner here on our last night in West Hollywood. We were visiting our son and wanted to go to an Italian restaurant. He and his wife have been here before and highly recommended it. We know why. The food was great and the owner (and cook) was very personable. We all had a pasta dish and for dessert we shared the flourless chocolate cake which was delicious. We'll be back on our next visit.

The restaurant was rather small, but added to the wonderful ambiance. We sat upstairs where we remained the only customers for the rest of the evening. It was excellent to not dine in a place that is so loud. Our waiter was from Italy and had some difficulty understanding English. However that only added to the authenticity of the restaurant. The wine and overall menu were small, but offered excellent choices. I had the tagliatelle beef ragu...it was amazing. The pasta was homemade, and the sauce was the perfect consistency. My date had the shrimp, which was also superb. Note: only 6 shrimp were offered, with no side. If you have a big appetite, consider ordering an appetizer also. The wine was from Italy and was also wonderful. One of the best Sauvignon Blanc I’ve had. For dessert we had panna cotta...also was excellent. Overall I can’t wait to return. They’ll most definitely be seeing more of me.

My wife and I shared our first date together ten years ago at Amarone. We went back to Amarone to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary just this past weekend and the memories came flooding back! Sandro was a joy to speak with throughout the evening, and his food was spectacular. The barolo wine was delicious, and the homemade pastas were perfectly cooked. What makes this space special is the ambiance.

My husband and I went to Amarone Kitchen for the first time. It exceeded our expectations even after reading all the great reviews. The service was excellent and the food and wine delicious. The owner, Sandro, treated us same as he treated his regular patrons who were at two other tables. It was a lovely room with great ambience. We will definitely return.
