About Amarone Glasgow
Not been to Amarone for a while...don't know why. Was there with friends today on 5pm booking. Booked for 4pm but we called and put the time back twice and this wasn't an issue. Got there at 5.30 and didn't leave til 8.45! There was no pressure on us at all to leave. Food was fabulous...menu selections on 5pm menu were excellent. One of my friends had asked for something not on 5pm menu but it was still provided and included in the set menu price. Definitely not going to leave it as long to go back!
Great Friday night out!
We chose the dearer option on 5pm. The scallops and prawns were very good. The chicken main was quite large but had a bit of a sweet sauce as did the rare lamb rump - but from previous dishes of rack of lamb asked for the sauce to be served on the side - perfect! We were all too full for desserts, though we did share a fabulous focaccia before the starters.
Contemporary city centre Italian restaurant
Amarone is a stylish Italian restaurant positioned beside Buchanan Street Subway station in Glasgow’s city centre. Ideally located for theatre-goers and weary shoppers, the restaurant is also a popular choice for a romantic rendezvous or just an informal meal with friends or family.
Italian cuisine made with fresh ingredients
The restaurant’s chefs use the freshest produce in their dishes and, where possible, will alter any dish to meet special requests or dietary requirements. Amarone’s signature dish is their antipasto misto, which consists of a selection of Italian cured meats, grilled and marinated vegetables and mozzarella.
The menu has an admirable selection of pizzas and pastas, as well as plenty of meat and seafood dishes, but don’t necessarily expect the usual fare – Amarone is perfect if you’re in the mood for Italian food, but would like to try something new. The restaurant’s cappesante con pancetta (seared Scottish king scallops with pancetta) is popular amongst diners, as is the rack of lamb with sauteed potatoes.
Close to city centre transport links
Amarone is child friendly, wheelchair accessible, and located at the corner of Buchanan Street and Nelson Mandela Square, next to Buchanan Street Subway station. The Royal Concert Hall is a 2 minute walk away, as is Queen Street train station, bus stops and a taxi rank. Central Station is also within walking distance.
