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.

We had reservations for this place but when we showed up for dinner on time and the place was closed. We planned our entire day around going here and they did not warn us the place was closed.

The wait staff was superb; all warm and friendly and helpful. The music was AWFUl, with celine Dion screeching over the whole restaurant. Food was pretty good, but please, keep the music quite, preferably Italian or classical.

Amarone is the perfect, quaint restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner or to celebrate a special occasion. The intimate, quiet setting and personal service make you feel right at home, even if it's your first visit. The staff is friendly and attentive to all your needs. So many outstanding choices on the menu make it hard to choose, which means you'll want to come back again to try something different. The prices are reasonable and you'll be happy you didn't choose one of the more expensive "touristy" restaurants in the theatre district. They were nice enough to help us celebrate a 50th birthday with a delicious slice of tiramisu, a candle and a chorus of "Happy Birthday" to make it the perfect evening.

Service was very good. They did bring out 3 of 4 meals then 5 minutes later the last one. Very attentive bus boys. The quality was very good.
The biggest negative was a lack of a lunch menu. You were forced to pay in the twenties for lunch portions. I don’t know if the portion is larger at dinner but I doubt it. It seemed to be their only menu.
It was the only one online also.

We had a great dinner. Each entree was done perfectly. The pasta seemed fresh and the plates were not drowning in sauce. The wine selection was good and the service attentive.

I haven't eaten at Amarone in a couple of years but I was going to be in the neighborhood and made dinner reservations. It was as good or better than I remembered. Wonderful wine selections, delicious food, attentive service and pleasant atmosphere. We had a wonderful dinner and left there very happy. Have had a family reunion dinner there in the past and they outdid themselves then too.

The tables are packed in tight and the noise is tremendously loud. They were very crowded on a Saturday night and the service was sporadic. The food is reminiscent of a catering hall or school cafeteria. Not terrible but made with little effort and the most meager of ingredients. The cocktails are good. I would recommend this restaurants for tourists with teen aged children.

There is little here that actually tastes authentic (like the poor example of bread and bland olive oil). It’s relatively expensive, mediocre Italian food in a hugely cramped setting with ok service. You can do so much better elsewhere that it’s hard to recommend this place.

Amazing place! I went through Zagat's recommendation and Amarone showed up as one of the good choices to eat good Pasta in NY! Therefore, I decided to try it for first time. I wasn't wrong with choosing Amarone. The food was spectacular, wine was excellent and with perfect service. The place is so comfortable and pleasant to talk with friends and enjoy a great Pasta. I recommend it a 100%. I would definitely return to this excellent Restaurant!

Cozy authentic Italian restaurant reasonably priced. Went before a show and it did not disappoint. I had the squid ink fettuccine with mussels, clams, lobster, and shrimp. It was absolutely delicious! The other dishes at the table were a tomato based pasta with shrimp, also very yummy and a filet of branzino. Had a yummy mascarpone gelato and chocolate cake to end the meal. Great experience!!
