Arrived in Venice late-ish. Finally found hotel after walking past this restaurant 4 or 5 times. Was very busy and happy to sit outside. Specials recommended by the waiter were excellent as well was the wine. Started chatting with the owner, Alfredo, who introduced us to another couple from Australia with whom we had dessert and tiramisu. The other couple had been here 3 nights in a row. Continued drinking until almost close. Alfredo offered to show us his wine cellar next to the restaurant. Decided to eat somewhere else the next night to try something different, but after a mediocre meal/service elsewhere we returned to All'Amarone for wine and dessert. Alfredo immediately greeted us and offered to make us a 'Van Gogh' of an anti pasti platter with his own personal note written under it all. The anti pasti was amazing and as we were told by his son, Johann, who Alfredo introduced to us later, was actually not on the menu, simply the food that he liked to eat himself. Giosia also offered to choose all our wines for the night, which we happily accepted and they were all fantastic. We returned the next day again with welcome arms. The food here may not be flashy or extravagant it is simple tasty food with amazing service, hospitality and atmosphere. This is why this restaurant is number 1 and will be for a while.
Thankyou to Alfredo, his wife, son Johann, Giosia and all the other staff. Keep up the amazing work. And as promised, we will return to All'Amarone!!!!!!
