The place was small and quaint and the staff very friendly. The menu had a decent amount of variety. The prices a little steep but not too bad. I had the Shrimp and Scallop Orrocchietto and though it had a sufficient amount of seafood, it lacked taste, I was so disappointed. The bread was delicious as was the salad, which... More

Bought a Groupon. The place is small and nice- reminded me of NYC. The wait staff are very attentive. The wait for the food was tooo long and the food wasn't anything special. Maybe they make the food from scratch and that's the reason why pasta is so expensive, but I don't know. Recommendation: why not, go and try it.

My husband an I went to the Amaretto Italian Bistro because of a Groupon we had purchased. Our waitress was Kaylee (not sure if this is spelled right) and she was excellent. The food was also excellent. We had the tenderloin crostini appetizer. Our entrees were the lasagna and the shrimp & scallop orrocchietto. Portions were good. My husband ate... More

Last Friday I went to Amaretto for the third time in about two years (I don't go to restaurants very often) and again the food was incredible good. I think that now it is even more refined than before. I had scallops with a crab risotto and my husband had a fillet with truffle mashed potatoes. We were very pleased.... More

Our friends introduce us to this restaurant that they have been enjoying for some time. We had a wonderfully prepared meal with great flavors. My husband had the lasagna with the pasta made in the kitchen. It was a generous portion yet he ate it all. Two of us each had the pork chop over sweet potato hash. The chop... More

Dined at Amaretto for the first time after trying some food that was donated for a fundraiser at a local church. I had the Duck confit appetizer! It was so perfect and luscious. My friends all had salads and loved them all. Entrees continued to impress, salmon was a masterpiece of flavor. The steaks were cooked perfect and the handmade... More

Calamari was excellent, shrimp and polenta was very tasty and the lasagna had a nice, sweet flavor. Bread was a little stale, but we'll let that slide. pesto oil was a little overrated, may be better on a salad. Portion sizes were a little light for the price as you don't get a side salad. Overall good food, as an... More

Had the opportunity to revisit Amaretto Italian Bistro with a colleague who was in the mood for an Italian meal and once again I was not disappointed. We were lucky enough to secure the last available table as we did not have reservations ( highly recommended ). We ordered a fine bottle of Pinot Noir to complement our starter of... More
