We usually enjoy and love our food at Amarone and purchase vouchers on a regular basis as gifts for friends, however disappointed this time. The service as always was second to none especially to have excellent table service when extremely busy says a lot for the staff. What let the restaurant down this time was the food quality. I ordered the Scallops to start. Usually this dish is excellent and comes well presented, however on this occasion the 3 scallops were extremely small and the pancetta was burnt in areas surrounding the scallops. There was also a bunch of salad leaves in the middle with no dressing or flavour. The staff were quick in changing my husbands starter who originally ordered the Caesar Salad, however he didn’t notice that it came with anchovies (he is allergic to some fish). They changed it immediately and the staff were really helpful and obliging. He had the Pate which was okay. For the main I had the lamb fillet which was cooked to perfection and up to Amarone’s exceptional standard. My husband had Chicken Penne Pasta which I also tasted. It is usually wine based, however on this occasion far to creamy and quite sickly and tasteless.
We will return again as this hopefully was just a bad day in the kitchen.
