Chocolate Cake with Hazelnut Gelato
Garlic, Oil and White Wine Sauce or Tomato Sauce
I've been to Amarone many times over the years. Tuesday marked the first time in a couple of years though since the pandemic. LOVE this place! My "go to" place in NYC.
Awesome service and food
Excellent service and food
Such a warm, cozy and charming Italian restaurant. My minestrone soup and branzino were both excellent. And the chocolate cake with hazelnut gelato was just out of this world. The service was outstanding and the prices were very reasonable. A wonderful dining option in Hell's Kitchen!
Went here on a solo dinner. Just moved into the neighborhood so I’m trying to find my go-to places. Loved the low-key feel of Amarone! The food was great and it felt very casual and relaxed. The only thing I didn’t like was the loud music being played the entire time I ate. I believe it was Italian pop (I could’ve been wrong) but something a little more quiet would’ve been nice. I will definitely be coming here again very soon.
The food and service at Amarone was outstanding. I would highly recommend!
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.
Great Italian bistro in mid town. Always a good experience. consistently good food.
Our first visit and we plane to return regularly. Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Great wine list too.
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.
Hello Tim, Thanks for penning down a wonderful review about us. We're really glad to know that you liked the food and the service. Hope you'd stop by more often.
Lunch for three prior to visiting the theatre. Service was attentive, food was great, atmosphere was very conducive to conversation. Lived the music as well.
Thank you Cathy for your lovely review. Can't wait to have you back.
Anniversary- they were wonderful
4 main couses 3 good simple chicken parm disappointing to the point hat if I had to do it over again I would send it back

Lovely, intimate and traditional Italian restaurant. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. I enjoyed a delicious butternut squash pasta and started with a very nice spinach salad with toasted almonds, bacon and pecorino cheese. Would definitely go again!
Maureen, I am happy to hear, that you enjoyed our service and food. You are always welcome to return to Amarone and try more delicious dishes.
Amarone is a go to Italian restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen! Went initially on the recommendation of the WestinConcierge and have been coming back for the past two years!
Barry, Thank you for your positive review. Looking forward to seeing you again at Amarone
Excellent food and service!!!
We needed to eat early so we could get to an 8 pm concert, and we lucked into this charming little restaurant. The lobster ravioli was a delicious special, and the recommended Sardinian wine was fabulous. Can’t wait to return!
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.
Lovely relaxed place. Excellent food and service. Romantic ambiance.
Very disappointing. Portions were good but food over cooked and not particularly flavorful. Honestly felt like they didn’t care. Service was good
Lovely, peaceful restaurant on 9th Ave, just outside the hubbub of Times Square. The food and service were both excellent, and it was perfect for a business luncheon. I will definitely be back.
Nice quiet table with very good service. Food was very good. For NYC prices were good.
My family always has a great time whenever were in town and the food is very good
Garkat, thank you your the positive review. We are happy you choose Amarone as your go to restaurant whenever you are in town. Looking forward to serving you and your family again.
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.
Been coming here for 20 years. We're treated like famiglia!!
Went to the restaurant for lunch on a Saturday, Nothing less than wonderful on all aspects. Only neagarive is that the wine selections are mostly on the price side, would be nice to include more choices.

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!

Welcoming, fun, and intimate. Excellent salad and pasta.

Excellent. second time back! Great food and service.
Wonderful to hear that you had a great time. Looking forward to seeing you a third time at Amarone!
Spinach pappardelle was excellent but the portion could have been a little larger.
Hey, Thank you for considering us for dinner, it means a lot to us. Peter, I hope you can give us another try soon and I am sure you will find the best option for you on the menu. Thank you for dining with us.
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!!
