This review is taken from the current (2014) edition.
Day or night, midweek or weekend, Amarone is constantly busy. Its combination of warm service, simple but contemporary surroundings, and eclectic menus, ensures it remains popular throughout the year. Set across two levels, this large restaurant is divided into more intimate sections by a central island. One quickly gains a sense that Amarone is efficiently run, as staff buzz about, polite and cheerful. The lunch and pre-theatre menu offers good value and a reasonable range of dishes, including a number with supplements allowing diners to sample premium options without switching to à la carte. Risotto with duck, red wine, savoy cabbage and peas, is more subtle than expected, but has a pleasingly peppery aftertaste. Like many options, this dish has a rustic aesthetic, which contrasts with the modern surroundings. Baked cod is delicately seasoned and accompanied by an an über-fresh salsa of bell peppers, olives, carrots and capers. Roast potatoes and broccoli complete this light but hearty feast. Amarone offers reliable and comfortable Italian dining in the heart of the city, and its popularity shows no signs of fading.
