High ceilings, wine bottle-lined feature pillars, and wide glass windows make Amarone a buzzy, New York-style Italian restaurant where you can enjoy a chic meal any time of day - breakfast, lunch, dinner, Happy Hour, or simply dessert.
Enjoy their lunches, dinners and friendly service :)
We like their Lamp chops & Fried Calimari especially.
If you have a special event, such as a birthday or anniversary; do inform them while making the reservation. The team will set up the table with a nice card (signed and addressed to the Birthday person) with a complimentary dessert at the end of the meal, help take a nice photo and email it to you.
Such nice thoughts don't you think so!
Made my reservation via quandoo just few days before the actual day. Had a special request for corner seats and briefly mentioned that it was for my anniversary. When I arrived at the restaurant, the manager showed us our seats almost immediately. They had a card wishing us happy
annniversay. The staffs were definitely very knowledgable on the food they are selling, giving us good recommendation without us asking. Taste wise is pretty good. My spouse and I had an enjoyable dinner there. they even gave us a surprise dessert for our anniversary. tthank you.
Finally had the chance to try it one evening. Because of CBD location, probably more lunch crowds, hence if you want a quiet, wait-free dinner, this is the place. Ample parking at $3.20/ entry after 6pm.
Ambience: high ceiling and tasteful wood interiors. Very european. Romantic ambience lighting. Tables are well spaced for privacy. Quiet areas + areas with view of the kitchen for those who wants to see action. Full marks for that Xmas feel. Good setting for business lunch/ dinner or romantic dinner. No kitchen smell on your clothes from dining here!!
Drink: Impressive wide range of wines and even Peroni beer on tap. Had a bottle of Prosecco white sparkling wine. Good to start off the meal.
Food: Crisp n hot bread served with butter n olive oil.. another good start. Wait staff know their menu if you need recommendations. I asked for an authentic Carbonara (not on menu) while my friends had seafood risotto and lobster linguine. Carbonara was impressive and true enough, very italian (highly recommended). The bacon was not overly salty and nicely panfried. Right amount of Parmesan cheese too. Totally no greasy and sick-feeling usually encountered towards the end when you eat carbonara at most other restaurants. Friends reported the Seafood Risotto and Lobster Linguine were tasty also. Evidenced from our emptied plates. Food presentation was #1 also.
Dessert: a MUST! Seriously good! We ordered Tiramisu (must eat!), Panna Cotta and flourless choc cake c/w ice cream and 2 scoops of Pistachio ice cream (with fresh nuts). All picture-perfect and right-sized. Not overly sweet hence allowed the flavours to be enjoyed. iI believe the ladies will enjoy that guilt-free feeling.
Service: nothing to complain. keep it up!
Price: Was pleasantly surprised. Given the location, quality ingredients and classy ambience, this is a real value-for-money. Noticed 2 Angmo (italian i pressumed) chefs too. If you want to impress your date/ clients without burning a hole in wallet, this is the one.
Complaints: Maybe a tad too quiet the evening i dined..Really a pity that CBD people usually dashed home or to the malls after work and missed this GEM. Their loss is my gain. I will surely be back...
The restaurant is located at the first floor of a office building. With its high ceiling, traditional looking furnitures, dim lights and huge range of wines around, the place smells of class and has an atas and old school feel to it. The place is not crowded, with a cosy feel around. As everyone is having fruit juice, I decide to join in and have carrot juice.
We start the meal with some bread, served with olive dip. The bread is quite crusty but a bit hard to handle. The bread and dip is refillable. We are served fried risotto ball as an amuse-bouche. I would prefer the ball been served pipping hot with melted cheese inside and crispy crust outside. The sauce served with it has a rather cheese taste.
Risotto allo scoglio ($30++)
Mixed Seafood Risotto
The staff has thoughtfully served an additional plate for me to put the unwanted shellfish shells. The seafood is quite fresh and the rice is well cooked. The serving is a bit too big for me that I could barely finish it.
Piccata di pollo ($28++)
Chicken Breast Piccata with Spinach and Roasted Potatoes
I like that the lemon wedge is served wrapped up and tied with a red ribbon. It enables one to squeeze the lemon juice out without dirtying one's fingers. The chicken is quite tender and flavourful.
Panna cotta ai frutti di bosco ($12++)
Panna Cotta with Fruits of the Forest
The panna cotta is quite rich and milky in taste. It balances sour and sweet taste of the raspberry sauce and fruits that served with it.
Overall the food is great and in sizeable serving, but priced on the high side. But I have entertainer mobile application which allows 1-for-1 main courses and allows me to have quite an amount of saving. At first I do have a bit of problems getting the staff to allow the whole table, but all end well in the end. The service is not bad, although I wish that could have been done to clear the bread crumbs on the table.
