Description: Amaretto is an upscale dining restaurant in the heart of Bournemouth town in Dorset. We specialize in modern Italian cuisine encompassing characteristics of various regions of Mediterranean, our menu represents more than authentic Italian menu, and it embraces the true Mediterranean lifestyle, such as Italy, France, Greece and Turkey. We bring a touch of casual elegance to Bournemouth, with classic and contemporary decor complimented by a comfortable ambiance. Amaretto’s menu features the authentic, traditional specialties of old Italian food as well as new Mediterranean fusion dishes including pastas, steaks, chops, chicken, beef, fish and other seafood dishes. Our chef creates menus very much inspired by all regions of Mediterranean, which make full use of all the excellent produce the Bournemouth town has to offer. Delicious Minestrone soup, freshly caught local fish, excellent sauces and home-made desserts, the restaurant‘s use of carefully aged beef has earned it the compliment of being said to serve the best steaks on the town. Enjoy our freshly baked garlic bread and more, desserts are made on the premises and there’s a good selection of coffees.All menu items are available for take-out, and our Special Party menu offers generous family-sized meals for your next family gathering, birthday party, School party, Hen-Stag party or office party. Amaretto restaurant is a hot spot for both locals and tourists.

We ate here on a Saturday evening and were welcomed warmly and offered the 2 course special for £8.95. There was a good choice for veggies and our meals were delicious. The house wine - both red and white was fine - the coffee a little strong bit rounded off a lovely evening. The service here was exemplary - attentive but not intrusive.

Popped into this restaurant early on a Saturday evening. The choice of food was good, and the prices very reasonable.

The decor and staff were great, very friendly and relaxing.

We went down to Bournemouth for the bank holiday weekend and booked a table at Amaretto

The service was very good, the menu was good and when the food arrived it was nice and hot

We had 3 courses each, and the total bill including drinks came to £35. My wife order Waffle with chocolate sauce and icecream which she told the manager she did not like, so they took this off the bill without hesitation

Not rushed, good service, good price. My chicken was fairly dry but everything else was very good. Easy to find we walked from the Mayfair Hotel

Dear WaltonPhil

Thank you for taking the time to review Amaretto Restaurant and very pleased to read that you make a point of negative reviews. The mussels are very popular with a lot of our customers so you will always find them on our menu. We pride ourselves on sourcing the freshly caught local fish everyday we can, meats from good local farmers, and some vegetables from our own garden.
It is very rewarding for us when our guests enjoy our food, I will pass on your compliments to our Chef Zek; he is indeed a good Chef and professional.
We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Warmest Regards,
Anna (Manager)
