First of all managed by a great guy, Tony, from Lazio. It gurantees great quality, personal touch, great food and great atmosphere, you feel at home, well...actually you feel like you are in Italy, eating better than in Italy.
The past is hand made and gorgeous, the pomodor sauce hand made by Tony's mother with best tomatoes and fresh basil is the best I ever had. The liguine a la vongoli, the raviole, the veal picatta, I tasted them in my several visits and the taste is like a dream. And the wine is typical Italian with a great choice.
And price? The food and the wine is priced in a way you will come back becasue they don't rob you.
Finally, the personal hospitality by the owner and manager, Tony, makes you have an unforgettable time. The food and the wine are only part of the good time. The overall experience makes you come back and recommend to your friends.

Pros: Fresh and delicious food and great atmosphere

Cons: Too many people getting to know the place

I said it before, the best rating I could ever give a restaurant is the fact that I see Italian tourists frequent it. Because it's authentic. The Pomodoro sauce is wonderful, I just get it with rigatoni and it's fantastic. Fresh basil...well fresh everything. Now I'm in love with their Fusilli Norcia, which is a red sauce with sweet and hot italian sausage, I never get tired of it. I also recommend the Brodetto with Red Snapper. It's a great portion of red snapper with shrimp, mussels and clams. The Three Cheese Risotto is rich and wonderful, and has always been perfectly cooked. It's the perfect local place for foodies in the hood to sneak off to for a few drinks or great, simply prepared Italian food. And the delver! Tony, the manager is a great guy, friendly and interested in his customers. The service is fantastic. Very relaxed.

You get a feeling of being in Italy when you go to Amarone. The decor is understated and comfortable. It's a popular place for business lunches or pre-theater meals. Their selection of homemade pasta specials is always mouth-watering - whether it's ravioli with seafood filling or a light tri-color pasta with an assortment of vegetables. Delicious salad selections; the Amarone salad with fresh parmasean and pear is one of my favorite items on the menu. Friendly staff, great service.

There was good Italian food and the service was great. The hostess was friendly and personable, and the place was comfortable. I would definitely go again and the party of 6 women I was with all agree. I had the pasta primavera that was awesome, Thanks Tony for the great service.

I love their large portions of Mussels in White Wine, and their array of pastas. The wine list is well chosen and there is a good selection of beers. You can dress comfortably and enjoy a hearty and delicious meal without spending a fortune. Would highly recommend.

Fresh Pasta, nice sized portions, top notch service - and the ever present and smiling Tony (owner, host...etc) I?ve been eating here for years and I love it - and recommend it to everyone.
Please note - Amarone is a big Pre-Theatre spot - so it?s not quiet and is usually crowded. Less for a romantic date and more for a fun group to enjoy.
EXCELLENT wine selection, EXCELLENT food.
Enjoy, and make sure you say hi to Tony.
DO IT!

Amarone Ristorante is my favorite restaurant in New York City. Every time I go there it is a beautiful and great experience. I'm always greeted warmly and seated promptly according to my reservation. Amarone has delicious Italian food that tastes like it comes from an Italian grandmother's kitchen, but is presented artistically. Every dish is delicious, starting with an antipasti, pasta aldente, pesci, carni and pollo. Amarone has amazing wine list (the best I've ever seen). An of course you can't forget to order a homemade dessert. Tiramisu is the best in NYC, chocolate cake with hazelnut gelato is excellent.
The service is excellent and always helpful. The owner -Tony is very friendly and is all over the place making sure everything is in order.
Try this absolutely fabulos restaurant, you will definitely not be disappointed. It is a GEM!!!!

Though it is a great place for a pre-broadway meal, I suggest going after 8pm when the hectic rush to get customers out to the show is over. Ask for Toni. Request the fresh pasta with the porcini mushrooms and truffle sauce. Then select a great bottle of Amarone, for example Bertani 1998. The mozzarella di bufala from Italy is the freshest around. This will be the most relaxing and the best meal you've had all year. Then sit back, have an espresso, enjoy any of the great desserts (my favorite is the tartufo) and relax some more. The waiter comes over and enhances your experience with a good Riciotto dessert wine. Have a few. Stay there until 1:30 in the morning. The owner will sit down and enter you in an interesting conversation. This is truly la dolce vita. If this restaurant were right next to DaSilvano in the Village, the service and the food cannot be compared. No contest. Please go to Amarone as only a true Italian like myself who knows good food, good wine, and nice people can tell you. My fiance and her mom were wowed in my company. It truly is a diamond in the rough.

Pros: best list of Amarone in NYC, freshest Italian food, great friendly service

Cons: busy street on 9th avenue, go inside even near the open doors

My wife and I had dinner at the Amarone Ristorante ( 686 9th Ave) while in NYC. The food and service were exceptional as was the price. Zagat rates this restaurant a 19 for food, 14 for décor and 19 for service. I would rate the food at least a 24 and serice a 25. I agree with the décor rating. Overall, a very good food and a very good value.

I found this place to be inviting and warm but service a tad pushy. The food is tasty but nothing you can't find at other good Italian restaurants. Had the riccatto fettucine and it was good, my friend had the sea bass special and he enjoyed it too.. we shared our dishes and both of us were not feeling well afterwards. Overall, I would recommend it if you are in the area.

Living in the area, I can't tell how many times I have been to this restaurant, but I can say that I have never been disappointed. The food is some of the best I've found in the city;always fresh and always prepared "just like Mama used to make". The wines are among the best I've ever had, especially the Amarones. Great place to take a break from the city and feel like your in a little restaurant in Italy.

Amarone was recommended to some friends and I after a show. We were pretty disappointed. We were seated pretty quickly, but thats prob. bec. the place was pretty empty. The owner welcomed us warmly kissing our hands, but the food was pretty average and the service was poor. Our waitress was nice enough when you could find her, but that was a challenge. I had the tilapia special which was mushy and boring and my three friends were also disappointed in their meals. Then they brought the check without asking if we would like dessert so we went for cheesecake elsewhere.

Three friends and I stopped in just to grab a quick bite before a show. To sum it up, the food was bad and the service was bad. The bread was hard and stale. The sauce tasted like it was something that came out of a can. And the chicken dish one friend was dry and tasteless. And when we were ready to pay our bill, it took us 10 minutes just to find him and another 10 minutes just to bring us our change. And it wasnt like the place was crowed. Our waiter acted like he didnt even care about us.

Cons: Taste, Service

Amarone is an excellent restaurant. However, the dishes remain the same, even with the daily specials. If you visit New York City, you must visit Amarone. The wines are tastefull and rare. Many restaurants may follow Amarone as their example.

The seating was done immediately, this place is extremely tiny not intimate do not recommend taking children. The waiter kept us waiting forever, the pasta arrived raw not aldente RAW. The waiter was the least bit concerned. Upon leaving the restaurant we ran into the owner so we proceeded to explain our experience at his restaurant he was not the least bit concerned. I DO NOT recommend this restaurant and it certainly does not have good Italian food.

Was very impressed with everything from the moment we got there until our meal was complete. The food overall was incredible! The Calamari appetizer was the best I ever had. The Chicken Amarone, Salmon Barolo, and Cornich Hen were also hits at the table. They sat us promptly and we were out in plenty of time before the show. This place is a great stop before a show AND even when you don't have one!!

Eaten here several times before and after the theater. Great Italian food, delicious salads, excellent pastas, good veal dishes as well. Save room for Italian cheese cake--the best! Very friendly and helpful staff and really do not need a reservation.

Have dined here at least 5 times, each time I leave completely satisfied. I would call the ambiance "upscale casual." The service is professional, the food is very fresh, and the prices are reasonable. Make a reservation if you plan to during the theater rush.
