Amarone’s homey indoor-outdoor trattoria on the edge of the theater district on 9th Avenue between 47th and 48th offers amazing eats that reflect the owners’ Italian background. Amarone stands out as one of New York’s best values in Hell’s Kitchen and surpasses even the highest expectations. Amarone has taken the expression “make your customers feel at home” to the next level. Sometimes it is hard to leave.

Amarone Ratings and Reviews
Never returning. Excessively loud & crowded; service intrusive and overly solicitous ( waiter had nose dripping which he wiped on his hands as he served); chicken tasted like rubber, lobster was funky smelling and inedible, too much salt everywhere. We left without dessert. Pricing was too high, especially for the rushed, disrespectful, pressuring service.
This was my second time to this restaurant. The food is very good, prices very reasonable. However, the service is not up to par... we found it very difficult to understand our wait staff... especially when one recited the “specials.” As with my first visit, our server spoke even faster when asked to repeat something, and we still were unable to understand him. The person was not very cordial, avoided eye contact, forgot to bring us butter, that we requested- when bread was brought to table. As I said, the food was very good. We will return, and next time we will insist he repeat the specials, until we understand exactly what he is describing.
Went to Amarone for a family dinner close to my daughters apartment in the Hells Kitchen district as it is An Italian restaurant with gluten free options including pasta. Authentic Italian servers, good wine menu and good gluten free pasta. Pricey and they add 20% tip to the bill without mentioning they would do this. Would go again.
This place is awful. I don't know how to cook and I can make pasta at least as good as they do, if not better. The wine list is non-existant (to order wine by the glass, the options are "red" or "white"). The seating is uncomfortable. The tables have paper tops. And the prices are high for such poor quality of food and ambiance.
This place was a lovely little restaurant for a date night! The cuisine was delicate and well made, and I think that it was definitely worth the price. We couldnt finish our portions and had another meal for the next day!
Only down was it was a little cramped, me and my girlfriend were sitting a little squished in a back corner.
Otherwise, totally worth it.
We had an awesome experience on Saturday night at Amarone. We came late maybe at 10:30PM. The food was very good! The restaurant was pretty empty to our surprise because it was a Saturday we thought it would be busier. Very classy and perfect for our date night. Our server Francesco was super polite and helpful with recommending dishes and wines! Would definitely come again and recommend to a friend.
We have eaten at Amarone twice now when visiting New York with our daughter. Food is very good, and the service is very nice. I really enjoy eating at this restaurant. We have eaten both inside and at an outside table. Both are very nice places to enjoy a meal.
I'm sad to say that the food here is very overpriced for what you get. No one in my party even finished their meal. We all got different things - chicken, pasta, and the special - and all of it was bland and underwhelming. It's way too expensive for the food to be so unimpressive. I do not feel like I got what I paid for at all.
Reservation was right on time (no waiting for our table to be readied).
A lot of the waitstaff are from Italy, so prepare for thick accents. It was a little hard to hear/understand the specials over the normal restaurant noise.
Food was excellent and came out together. Everyone at our table of 6 enjoyed their meal.
Waiter was very attentive until our food arrived and then stopped by once during the meal to check on us. Had to chase him down for the check-- not sure if he was being inattentive or letting us digest at our own pace without pressuring us.
Wanted to split the check but he ended up swiping the same card for both parts of the check. Luckily we caught it before leaving, and he was able to correct it.
The meal was very tasty and the ambiance was nice. We were just a little frustrated over the end of the meal, but all in all, it was a nice evening.
This is the fourth time I have been to Amarone and I have had a great time each visit. This time I requested a table by the window and mentioned that it was my father birthday and they beautifully accommodated both. They even wrote out "Happy Birthday" on his dessert plate and sang to him with us. Absolutely lovely. If you are looking for good classic Italian in Hell's Kitchen you should really go to Amarone!
Recommended and was sooo awesome. The food and service was incredible. We went for a late lunch and had fruiti de mare with homemade ink pasta and buffalo Capresse salad that was wonderful! Our bill with a drink for each of us was under $65. We highly recommend it! 👍
This restaurant was a good find. Sometimes I go out for a gastro experience, other times I want to experience exemplary service or even romantic ambience in a scenic environment. This time, I simply wanted to have a meal at a pre-theater restaurant where I could guarantee satisfaction in a timely manner, and I was not disappointed.
I enjoyed the appetizing bread, ceaser salad, chicken parmesan, glass of reisling, and the apple tart. Although my ratings do not appear to be outstanding, they are slightly lower to take into account the fact that people very often want something greater out of their dining experience than I was searching for at the time. I do want to say Amarone provided a solid menu, with solid service and solid fare for good value.
Given my needs Amarone more than left me satisfied.
Disappointing tourist trap. The whole experience felt like a con, from the overpriced and confusing wine list to the unintelligible staff who could not describe the specials with any specifics. Their version of "authentic Italian" was anything but.
None of our party could even finish dinner--not good.
Our family returned to Amarone last night, to celebrate the anniversary of our move to NYC. We first dined here with family friends one year ago after a long and difficult move, and have talked about our delicious meal many times over the course of the last year. As a family of vegetarians, there were three options for us on the menu. The rigatoni with eggplant was good, but the gnocchi was flavorless and the penne primavera was disappointing. We recall now that the two dinner specials a year ago were vegetarian options (eggplant parmigiana and vegetable lasagna), and this is what we fondly remember. We had planned to return to Amarone every year to celebrate our move, but after last nights disappointing (and overpriced) dinner, we'll be making reservations elsewhere.
Food was excellent. I had one major complaint. I was seated at a table which was in a location where no table should have been placed. It was just a couple of feet in front of the spot where all servers frequently stopped to pick up extra silverware, plates, pepper grinders, napkins, etc. As a result, during the course of my meal, I was bumped several times by waitstaff and had one or more people within inches of me for much of the meal. I was surprised to get that table when I was not just a walk-in, I had made a reservation. I would go back but wouldn't sit at that table.
