Too bad. The restaurant closed. It was a favorite of ours. Wish they would reopen. They had great live music. Homemade brick oven fired pizza and a great bar staff.

The Valentine dinner started great with a very good deal $75 a couple with a bottle of wine included! Great deal right?! A nice house red wine, very good bruschetta!!! Then the entree!!! Can you believe it? The steak was very good and the mashed potatoes too! The Gorgonzola was missing but overall good! However the pasta with eggplant and... More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants for a special occasion with exquisite dishes. However, we ate there last night, and it was absolutely terrible. I discovered that the management changed about a year and a half ago after speaking to the hostess. When we arrived and said we had reservations, they attempted to seat us in the... More

Well this was our first time to this potential neighborhood restaurant. Prices are upscale and environment is beautiful. However the food was less than good. The chicken parmesan was tough and inedible. It was returned to the kitchen and replaced by mussels which were again overcooked and dry. Either someone in the kitchen tonight had a heavy hand with overcooking... More

Just came back from Amaro's and have to say it was overall a very disappointing experience. We ordered the Chicken Parmigiana and the chicken was just not edible. It was dry and overcooked. I could barely cut it. We reordered and chose different foods including the mussels that were also dry. However, the service was equally poor. There was a... More

We had dinner at Amaro last week. Had the muscles in their awesome red sauce and the chicken parm. Both were very very good. Had a fabulous waitress , think her name was Ashley. Suggested good wines to go with the food. We had terrific service and very good service. We would go back.

Overpriced for a strip mall restaurant. The owner was not open to our opinions. We are people who eat out a lot and know what the costs are at other Italian restaurants in the area and for what they charge, you should be at a very upscale place. The owner has an attitude and not very pleasant. We no longer... More

I recently had dinner at Amaro's and was happy to meet the new owners. The owners were attentive and cared deeply about the satisfaction of their customers. I had stopped eating at Amaro's a year earlier after hearing from my friend that the prior owner approached her husband and demanded a loan from him at no interest to keep his... More

I had been enjoying Amaro for quite some time...until recently. They always had very tasty pizza and a panna cotta desert that abounded in flavor. The original owners were two chefs whose creations are notable throughout the Valley. Amaro has now changed hands and obviously the food has suffered. After my last dining experience, I have officially removed them from... More
