We visited Amaretto for Saturday lunch on a wet and wild spring day. It was cold outside and lacklustre inside. We were promptly welcomed, slotted in a booth close to the door, although the waiting staff were quite stand offish. This contrasted with the warm welcome and chat extended to regulars as they stepped in from the street.
The food on the short lunch menu was hot and tasty. The minestrone soup with cabbage and the polpette meat balls in tomato sauce, with garlic bread were well made and filling. We both opted for the chicken Milanese which was beautifully cooked and served with spaghetti or fries and a rich lemon mayonnaise. Booking through 5pm we were entitled to a glass of wine or a half pint of draft beer. These were offered promptly and were followed with a carafe of cold water with lemon and orange slices.
There is a reasonable wine list offering mainly Italian wines in the £20 to £30 bracket with half a dozen wines by the glass. The coffee smelled good.
For the set lunch menu the value for money was very good and with friendlier service and a warmer atmosphere it would definitely be worth a trip back to Bridge of Weir.
