A relaxed yet sophisticated city centre restaurant with outstanding menus and an interesting wine list.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Pollo funghi e pancetta with its glistening, creamy, mushroom-infused sauce, slices of perfectly roasted chicken breast atop a small mountain of wild mushrooms and pancetta flanked by large crusty roast potatoes is but one of the substantial mains on Amarone’s excellent value three-course lunch and early-dining menu. Bookend this with a rich broccoli and gorgonzola soup and a perfectly wobbly white chocolate and buttermilk panacotta with raspberry coulis and sugared almonds, and at under £20 you have a gourmet bargain. Ideally situated a minute’s walk from Queen Street Station and the Royal Concert Hall, Amarone provides a relaxed yet sleek setting for lunch or dinner while the outside terrace is one of the best al fresco eating spots in the city centre. The wine list is also a source of true pleasure, specialising in Amarone della Valpolicella a range of dry fruity wines from the Veneto – ideal partners for the full range of Italian cuisine. Service is responsive and engaged and menus offer all that is traditionally Italian coupled with some international favourites.
