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.

Been to Amorone at least 4 times. Always very satisfied. First time on a Saturday evening and during 9th Ave Festival. Place was packed and very noisey obviously on the street but waiters and staff were calm and courteous and food excellent. I was pleased to bring friend to celebrate a special anniversary for him,

When we lived in this neighborhood, we dined here often, but having moved far uptown, we were not in the 'hood for quite some time. Tonight we came back and OMG so good; better than we recalled. The grilled calamari is amazing and the veal chop special was beyond. The pasta puttanesca was perfect for my husband, and we shared a Lovely tiramisu afterwards. Service was perfect. Go here and and be happy. NOTE: we were going to a 7:00 show and were quite early (4:30) for our 5:00 reservation (which was no problem - it was nearly empty.) When we left at 6:15 the place was packed! so: RESERVE!

A great Italian restaurant if you are a tourist looking to overpay for bland tasting food. We sat in the smaller of the two rooms at a 2-top affording us plenty of space, untypical for a NY City restaurant. The noise level was low and permitted conversation. The service was friendly and efficient but not totally knowledgeable. What type of Chardonnay...i don't know. Enough of the positives! To me the bread foreshadows what is to come, in this case cold, sliced bread with a soft chewy crust. Very disappointed. We began with the smallest arrugula/pear salad I have ever seen, the dressing was light and lacked any descernable flavor. My wife had the special raviolis which she rated a solid B, tasted good but not great. My spinach pasta with Bolognese sauce was a big disappointed, the pasta was fresh a d cooked properly but the sauce tasted bland, like chunky ketchup. With that said we would NOT return to pay almost $100 for 2. (including tip). There are too many other/good options on 9th avenue!

Pre-theater dinner. Extraordinarily meh. Salad ok but not enough vinegar in dressing. Chicken scarpiella had no peppers, minimal flavor, and was dry. Seafood with squid ink pasta pretty flavorless. Wine and drinks fine. Lame beer selection. Not poison but not going back either.

Very crowded tight seating. Food was just Ok. Waiter was trying but forgot drinks. Charged for half a serving of pasta to substitute for mashed potatoes. Pasta was cold. Biggest problem- double billed for coffee and dessert. Complimentary drink as we were leaving didn't help.

This has been our fourth time enjoying this restaurant, twice with different sets of friends. We have not been disappointed. They have such an assortment of meals and each are made of great quality. This Saturday I had the Fusilli “Norcia”, our friend had the Linguine Alla Vongole which she loved and my wife had the Bucatini All’Amatriciana which is her favorite and has had it multiple times. Plus they have the advantage of a small outside seating area which if you are lucky enough to get is a great way to people watch the folks in NYC. You will not be disappointed when you come here. Staff here is amazing too. They all work so fast to make sure your meal is great and you are enjoying yourself. Please make sure you make this restaurant one of the places you stop when in NYC.

My hotel recommended Amarone as a nice local trattoria and they were right. Menu options were excellent. I had a top quality pasta dish and a delicious dessert. Wines by the glass were reasonable if unexciting. Service by Jose was excellent - personable and helpful. Nice atmosphere, cozy but comfortable. I enjoyed it so much I went back the next night and had something different. The pasta with leeks, prosciutto and smoked mozzarella was terrific! Would love to eat there again on another trip to NY. Definitely recommend!

If only I had seen the dessert menu at the beginning of my visit! I would have ordered differently so there was still room for dessert.
The different (lower) prices on the to-go/delivery menu offered on the sidewalk creates confusion.

Could be better. Seating is very tight when crowded. Had a Caesar salad with anchovies. Not bad needed more salad dressing. Spouse had the salad with pears and there was hardly any dressing on it. We both had a special with fettuccine with squid ink, mussels, clams, shrimp, and calamari. Too much calamari, weak on shrimp, mussels were good but only about 4, and mini clams that were flavorless. Finished with the tiramisu which was very good. With so many Italian restaurants to chose from we won’t be back.

First, after we declined to purchase a $120 bottle of wine they were pushing the service declined. Then they were very rude in asking us to leave only 90 minutes after our reservation time and while we all had half glasses of wine left to drink.

We ate here at the request of my Italian boyfriend. Since he lives in Italy I really didn't want to eat at an Italian restaurant in the U.S. but I'm glad we did. It was outstanding and authentic (disclaimer: I am not Italian). However it was better than any meal I had in the 3 months I spent in Italy recently.

First was the smell. The woman next to us just received her dish when we arrived. It was a tomato-based pasta dish (bucatini). The smell was amazing. She loved it. It says something that she is from Italy, living in London, and missing authentic Italian food. Our grilled calamari appetizer was fresh, tender, and tasty. My boyfriend's dish of linguine with vongole (clams) was topped with the perfect amount of fresh parsley. It was delicious. My dish of seafood - red snapper fillet in a tomato broth with buttery scallops, shrimp, clams, and mussels - was divine. The best of fresh seafood and broth/sauce that complemented but did not overwhelm. Cheers to the chef.

Also, in world full of disappointing tiramisu, this tiramisu did not disappoint.

Our service was outstanding. Our waiter from Italy never missed a beat. He was kind, funny and helpful.

I highly recommend Amarone and I would return!

We have dined at Amarone at least 6 times, it is one of our favorites when visiting New York City. Having grown up in the New York city area, we have eaten at many Italian restaurants. This is still one of our favorites. The food is always good, the staff are great and highly recommend this restaurant.

Visiting from Buffalo, NY we asked out hotel where to get great Italian food. Amarone did not disappoint! I did not see Alfredo on the menu, but that was not an issue they made it for me!! It was clearly homemade and delicious! We made reservations & arrived late which thankfully was not an issue. The seating was a little snug, but I am not too curvy so I was fine. Great price, portion, and great service. The waiter was professional, fast, and accomidating!
